Interesting Sanding Tool

Since Spring is here, or at least is supposed to be here... I saw something that might be of interest to those of you who have boats to sand. Even though it is meant for drywall sanding, it might be useful for bottom paint or fiberglass sanding. Probably also pretty good for sanding teak, where the dust is pretty unhealthy for you.

Sand & Kleen Dustless Drywall Sanding Dust-busting drywall sander

Sanding drywall is messy and nasty— it's hard on both your tools and lungs. With this system the majority of the dust is sucked up right at the sanding pad. The sanding head, which uses standard sanding screens, is attached to a hose that runs to the Aquair Water Filter, a five gallon bucket that has a another hose you attach to a Shop-Vac (not provided). As you sand, the dust is sucked through 36 little holes on a pad attached to the sanding head. When the dust hits the water it goes into suspension, and doesn't reach (or ruin) the Shop-Vac. Note: after a good bit of use, you will need to change the water.
You can see the item here.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
