Our attempt to perform our sea trial on September 27th had to be aborted after the waves became too large. We'll try again asap.
GOOD NEWS !
The US Patent Office has "allowed" our patent - yet again. It was first allowed in June of 2013, but a piece of Japanese prior art was discovered that caused a delay. The patent should now "issue" (i.e. be "final") in about 1 month.
