    I have just been reading the USCG requirements for structural fire protection for small passenger vessels and since they, of course, dont give brand and type recomendations, i am wondering which resins others have had accepted. I would be looking at either vinylester or polyester systems,not epoxy.

    It's been years since I did anything with sub chapter T. Several resin manufacturers have complying products. I think you can send your requirements to their technical department, and let them offer you what will fulfill them.
