Apparently, the water slaps the bow so hard that Bessie's owners can't sleep. So, I was asked to make a contraption that they found on their Nordic tug site that works to stop the slap and dampen the loud breaking water sounds. I had fun figuring this one out. I know the pics don't do it justice. The right image has the swim noodles in it already, the bra needs padding to float up to the curve in the bow. There will be line between the middle grommets and then lines from the lateral grommets to the upper bow to hold it in place. No elastic for Bessie's bra. She will be comfortable, I hope. And, may her owner's sleep in peace.
