Sponsors of S/V Lynx

Several companies have chosen to sponsor S/V Lynx
Here is a list of those companies. Please note that, so far, none* of these companies came to us, we went to them because we wanted to buy their gear, and asked if they wanted to sponsor us. Therefore, we can honestly tell you that we wanted their products, not because they sponsored us, but because we like what they make. Getting a deal of some kind was just icing on the cake and we have no restrictions on our reviews!

* (Exception: Thermo Works approached us, but the batteries are my design, so standing behind them is just tooting our own horn)

Schionning Designs

Schionning Designs

Schionning Designs gave us a discount on the plans in exchange  for making a video series about building the new Solitaire 1520.  And, later, since we collaborated on the design, they have offered us a commission on each boat sold by our channel.

Mobirise

Combi ePropulsion
Systems

On contacting Combi about purchasing our Hybrid propulsion system, we asked about a sponsorship and they kindly agreed to discount the system.

Goiot-Systems

Goiot Systems

We decided to go with Goiot for many products, and contacted them for a price.  We asked about a sponsorship and they decided to back us with a great discount.

Schionning Designs

Istec

On deciding to buy a New Generation Parasailor from Istec, we contacted the company and they were happy to sponsor S/V Lynx with a discount on our sail.

Colligo Marine

Colligo Marine

We chose to go with Colligo for our synthetic rigging.  On telling them about our project, they decided to sponsor us with a discount on their rigging. 

Engitype

Engitype

John Savage, the owner of Engitype, is a long time friend, so when I wanted to 3D print a bunch of parts for S/V Lynx, he offered to sponsor our project.  We will be printing both Markforged and Formlabs parts.

Thermo Works

Thermo Works

Thermo Works is going into a new area of manufacturing, lithium batteries.  They compensated us for our battery design and commissioned us to make some prototypes.  In addition, we get a heavy discount on some of the future finished batteries.

Sicomin Epoxy Systems

Sicomin

As required by Schionning Designs, we are using Sicomin epoxy for laminated areas of the boat.  Do to shipping issues, we had to source this ourselves.  We contacted Sicomin and they were kind enough to offer to sponsor our boat build with a discount on their epoxy.

Total Boat

Total Boat

We plan to use Total Boat epoxy and fairing compound for interior portions of the salon, cockpit, and portions of the furniture in the hulls.  They generously offered to sponsor S/V Lynx with a discount on their products.
