Bad news first:
Remember when there was that Customs delay last month? Well that was the export Customs office. Now the fabric shipment is in Canada, and here we have our very own Customs officers and apparently they have taken an interest in the shipment too. So much so that the shipment hasn’t moved for the past week.
I don’t know if there’s a stash of heroin stuffed between the fabric rolls, or a terrorist driving the truck, or what, but this incredible series of delays makes me wonder how any business manages to function while relying on international trade. I placed this order in February and here we are in June, still with no fabric.
Several people have asked about a 2-person DIY Packraft, and after considering lots of different design options, I decided to stick with something fairly simple for the first version. I haven’t built one yet, but for those of you who are eager to get started, the plans are available in the shop. Click the link for more information.
