perhaps our THT resident composites expert that has several years of international experience at the highest levels, standards and Quality Assurance, will chime in...

he's also recently demonstrated, without a doubt, that he has the same level of expertise, in engines...

this is a good thread. Disease free. Be careful fellas. I know from experience. If you go looking for trouble. It’s easy to find.

the thread has had a nice run, thank you gentlemen.
I've had nothing to add to the Basalt discussion, I like Ondarvr1's perspective.
I've been having quite a lot of fun smelling the roses just recently and haven't been spending much time trying to stay on top of the latest and greatest is In the composite world.
I'm getting close to having 4000 miles on the latest Commuter Boat that I slid into the water at the end of last May.
And because it's a photo thread...

Glad you are enjoying the boat. After that much use, is it all working as you had hoped? You had a lot of really unique and specialized ideas on that thing. Anything you would do different?

I see she got dinner.

Basalt fiber is one of those things that would make a great rope from which to tie a hangman's noose. I was told once that engineers don't want to stick out their neck for fear of being responsible if something goes wrong. Bean counters don't have the same fear and will try anything to save a buck. Well, they'll try anything as long as they can blame the engineer. I think there is not a real big push because the industry doesn't feel a big enough gain with a switch. They are comfortable with the status quo.
