Great stuff mate. Is mylar reusable after? Not sure if you covered this, how do you find inserts (for others, coz I probably know :) ?

Thanks :-)
You could reuse the mylar, especially the bottom sheet, which remains flat, but it is a fair amount of effort to clean it.
We treat it as a consumable, as it's around USD 5 per meter.

The inserts are M6 SS nuts welded to washers, done locally.

Cool.

I've meant how to drill through the topsheet:) Are inserts visible at all?

You can see the little dimples which are the centres of the inserts when you hold the board at the right angle.

How did it work on the water?
Would you change something for the next time?
