SF that was funny....Carbon tax....ehehehehe

However, you know there's a shortage of raw CF materials here??

We had to import from US, for a project that is going on here....

Al Gore hasn't found that there are Countries on the other side of the water....

Yes, we're both picking on you and joking... Boy, he's awfully defensive about his hull.... must be compensating for something...maybe it was built by the French, like his boom...

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.

Nahhh...built by a "less smart boat builder" as the whole boat is cored, except a 1' wide line on the center bottom of the hull where its not cored (where the keel goes).

By the way..only 3 thru hulls..all thru uncored parts.

I'm not defensive..I'm just kidding...I don't really care what you guys say

Well, he was smart enough to leave a bit solid laminate and then to put the throughhulls through the solid bits...rather than the cored bits... so it must have been a Portugese builder...rather than a French one.

WOW, bad news! President Bush just used the War Powers Act to ban the export of carbon fiber materials - US needs all CF and more for production of the new F22 F-22 Raptor Team Web Site. This weapon system is being rushed into use so the US will be ready for war with France.

He also recalled all exported material, assigning the CIA to collect any boats build with US CF, by any means necessary.

the US CF was for another thing we have "going" on here...not my boat...we bought it in Early march, at a place recommended by you guys...

For my boat all was aquired in Europe....some time ago..try again

Portugal is helping the US in Iraq, so the CIA will bring some more, if we need!!

Giu,
Obviously my comments are generalizations, sounds like your builder was on top of the subject - just don't do too much drilling on your own - I'd take your boat in a minute, just the way it is (broken boom OK).
