Otseg - I find your stories & anecdotes at least as interesting and entertaining as following your build here - thanks for sharing along both lines. This 39 is looking awesome, and really hoping we get to see her at the Miami show(?)!

My reference to resin with the carbon being less conductive was more about heat. Ancor rates their sleeves to 105c. I think standard epoxy starts to soften well before that temp, which can lead to bigger problems if under load...

That said, I have read about some projects in the auto industry talking about using integrated carbon components as a way to conduct/manage electricity in electric cars.

That 177' mast acting as a 220v lighting rod must have stained some shorts!
