I just recently found this forum and it's fantastic. I have been scuba diving since about 1969 but this just added a whole new dimension into underwater fun. The posts I have read seem to indicate a great feeling of worldwide comraderie amongst the members.
I was searching for information on monofin design and construction in order to put one on my one-man human-powered submarine. We have a race coming up in the end of June and I hope to have one installed and tested before then. I currently have a rigid airfoil type tail on the boat and it just isn't living up to expectations. The threads regarding fin construction have offered a lot of good advice and links to other sites. Thanks to all.

Are you talking about about a moveable, non flexible, powered foil? If you have a little time, will you give us a description including dimensions and the problems? Please visit again and give the results of the race too.
