Help with my skis =)

Is it possible to re-laminate the tops of my skis? or have it done?Does anybody know how I can keep them from chipping when they clash into each other in the air? Thank you for your time!

Cell phone as walkie talkie

Does anyone know whether it's possible to re-purpose old cell phones as walkie talkies? I have some "old" phones (1X Tri-mode - 1.9 GHz and 800 MHz CDMA and 800MHz AMPS), and I'd love to be able to use them for our ski club as a short range back channel for communications in addition to the radios we use when we host races. I'm assuming we'd need to get some sort of base station, not sure where or how. There are probably some laws we'd have to comply with, assuming that something like this is even possible (I'm in Canada). I'd consider activating & using them normally, but the cell coverage on our mountain is very weak and unreliable, hence this post. Any ideas on how to get something like this started? Or is it a non-starter?

60m floating sea conveyor as customer transportation to/from a deck 30m offshore. Can anyone give me some advice pls?

The aim of this creation is to assist weak/tired swimmers.  The platform (used for watersports) is quite far from shore (30m) and even with lifejackets I don't want anyone getting in trouble or drifting off.  I do have a boat for emergencies but it's too small for regular use   Anyway, I was watching a ski lift and thought that the principle should be applicable (in theory!) to my problem.So far (not very!) I thought I could use waxed nylon rope with floats placed approx every 1.5/2m for people to hang onto - the bit I have no idea about is how to get it all around the mechanisms which power it ( "mechanisms" because I can't remember the names, I really am a beginner so pls go slow!).  Also a bit vague re marine engineering considerations (type of materials etc) and power.  I know I haven't got very far but someone could pls lend me a bit of their brain it would be much appreciated.  Simple and not massively expensive would be a big relief!Thanks again for reading this,Kate
