The Building of "Da Slippa II"

This is the very beginning of building "Da Slippa II". Even though he made several successful voyages with the "Da Slippa I", financial backing was nonexistent. Rather than be daunted by the challenge of not being able to use a professional boat yard, Fisher built his own in his backyard, "Maui Style."

"The table was twenty feet long and the guides are placed to in order to set the lines of the bow and hull," Fisher said.

It was ultimately a celebration to tear the table down. "It's like removing the scaffolding after the frame of a building is built, even though there's more work to be done. It symbolized being able to stand on its own as a windsurfer."
