Friends and supporters of Ocean Planet,

Press Release -February 29, 2000 

Carbon/foam core cockpit structure! 


We are excited to haved received major funding help from our gracious supporters. But your help is still valuable and needed! 

Tom Wylie and I went to Eric Chase’s shop in Marshall recently and caught our first look at the carbon/foam core cockpit structure. It is even cooler than I thought it would be! The shape and ergonomics are completely original, and make perfect sense. Couldn’t stop grinnin’ as I walked around in it. We set up a dummy side deck to check some hardware layout. The cockpit with vestibule and coachroof will be ready to ship to Schooner Creek next week to meet the Hull and Deck in a pre-arranged marriage. 

Check out the pictures below. More soon,
