On July 19 of this year, RCRV received a request from Systems Unlimited, Inc. to build an adult swing.  This swing had to be able to hold a 300 pound individual.  RCRV accepted the challenge and Dave Knuth came up with a design that was presented to Systems Unlimited for their approval.  They reviewed and approved the design and subsequent funding estimate.  

Dave finalized the design and he and Jim Vacherlon procured the necessary materials and hardware.  Jim and Dave spent Monday, August 15, cutting the lumber to size and drilling the necessary holes for the fastening bolts.   On Friday, August 19, Jim and Dave delivered the material to the Systems Unlimited site, and along with Wil Mickelson and Jim Young, assembled the swing. After the swing was assembled and tested, it was observed to have unacceptable lateral sway.  Dave designed a fix and on Monday August 19, Dave installed Service Bulletin #1.  The swing was now much more stable, and the folks at Systems Unlimited are very happy with the swing.  Chalk up another win for RCRV.
