Is this a wind up ?

If not , does the term "search engine" mean anything to you ?

In the event that you are serious or as I suspect merely lazy it's "Glass Reinforced Plastic".

Looks like somebody woke up on the wrong side of the bed. I heard wombats do very poorly on too little sleep

Wombats do VERY poorly on too little sleep but other than it being Monday and I'm not out on the boat my mood is relatively calm cos I slept like a deadun last night.

You do have to ask yourself however, why someone , anyone, needs to post such a question. Google would have given them the answer much quicker than I did and without the scorn.

GRP is hardly the world's most obscure acronym after all.

So smile as you walk down the street, laugh to yourself and smile at others, you'll get locked up for being a complete nutter but such is life.

GRP/Fibreglass. A good material for lightweight offshore boats and, provided any knocks and scratches are touched up on a regular basis, will give many years of service. We do not recommend the use on large inland waterways boats though - not really tough enough for "Contact Boating".

This explains better

Funny, but six years later
Google gives this link first of all - in answer to g.r.p. hull.
Thank you tdw, you wombat - you're a cult favorite when grumpy, I guess!

And your icon - is this the catamaran community 'winking' at those who lug lead? Right on, and leave those dogs in your sleep - 'cats' rule! Make mine a vintage CSK, please.

Cheers

it is the first link because none of the other articles use the period punctuation in the abbreviation ... it's all in the Keywords! Something to consider if you are building a web site and want your web page to show up first in a google search ;-)

And for those, grumpy wombats or otherwise, that don't live on antipodean island continents the term often used is "fiberglass". Or is it "fibreglass" -- they spell differently down there as well.
