Re: Time to resurrect the Ferrocement yacht?
The simple answer to the OP is no.
There were plasticizers in the 70's and even a resin bog called Ferr-A-Lite that replaced the mortar with a sort of fiberglass putty.
You still end up with a floating footpath with minimal residual value.
I once heard building a ferro armature described as entailing "Thousands of hours of soul destroying work".
I can't see ferro ever becoming viable again until the other materials become prohibitively expensive
I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.
