Meet "Blue Bottle", the second 70/70 Ubercat in a row that I've built. This time, with free rocker.
The deck is the last of my old roll of navy 70d. The I beams and bottom are a new roll which has a lighter PU laminate. That means more pliability! I had some green fabric a while back that some will remember fondly. This is reminiscent of that. Nice combo in Blue Bottle then!
Blue Bottle has been built for Australian Peter "Marsupial" Horton. Peter was keen to get a mat that had plenty of lift and would be fast and lively in decent waves,
Good choice then! That said, I've been riding my Ubercat in all conditions for a few months now and she's going great!
The grip is white Puraflex 40 so Blue bottle really is going to be a light weight ride! Blue Bottle is still en route but I'm looking forward to hearing how she goes.
So then. A little more about Pete... Well, I'm not going to tell ya, but I've added a bit of reading below.
