I knew this was coming, but it was nice to get the design patent in the mail prior to Christmas. This is one of two patents I was awarded this year, and my first design patent. The guys who did the “heavy lifting” for the Catfish were Shawn Whetstone and Terry Birchler of Zukun Plan in Ohio, whose names are also listed on the patent.
The second patent awarded is a new suspension design…something I hope sees production this year. If I could only find that patent in my stack of papers, it could go up on the wall too….
