We have a few to serve coffee in, and some for sale. We're working on getting our coffee corner dialed in a bit better.

Clutch Kile //

Here's a portrait of Clutch Kile, hot-coater at Waterman's Guild.

Clutch builds up the bead on Gully's wooden fins to protect them from rocks.

Not to mention laminating the fins and tacking them on...
