So I have three different things in the mail right now. Gloves, socks, and cement.
The gloves are obviously for swimming, the cement I need to run tests and then use to hold the tail together, and the socks are for chafing and cushioning and strap slippage. Today I run to Lowe's to grab tubing and some silicone stuff to use as the sealant. All I can currently do is a pattern fitting for the fluke and testing on patches of neoprene. In case anyone actually is following this and cares, aside from Obadiah that is.
