Re: Chain Plates

Casey, I can appreciate that. If you are really worried about it, ask for the paperwork proving grade. It isn't that much more expensive.

What I can tell you is that Allied's Chinese plants...

Re: Chain Plates

Miata,

I was in the titanium business and left to go back to practicing law.

Re: synthetic rigging

I actually helped on the design of that knife... It is absolutely my favorite rigging knife, and God is it beautiful.

Re: Colregs? Who cares?

Trust me the buyers know exactly what they are doing. One large ship is much more efficient than multiple smaller vessels carrying the same cargo, can operate at higher speed but lower prismatic...

Re: Quick Advice: Donating a boat ride for charity

Re: Quick Advice: Donating a boat ride for charity

Re: 3D Printing

Re: 3D Printing

West,

If I was taking a cast part to sls it should actually be stronger. If it was machined, or wrought the printed part is likely a little weaker. On the other hand there are a lot of good...

Re: 3D Printing
