The Marketplace Forums can be useful for members who know one another well from forum discussions and offline communications and wish to post boatbuilding tools, drafting tools, molds and tooling, and other professional equipment for sale or trade. However, caution and good judgement should always be used. Especially when considering any business with anyone not already well known to you and trusted, due diligence must be used to confirm details and identity and be sure the transaction is safe before any money or property changes hands. Always use good judgement and perform due dilligence and follow these guidelines.

    Fiberglass Chopped strand mat is a procedure not accepted by some administrations for the construction of the hulls of ships. That is due mainly to the difficulty of getting the mechanical properties of the final product are uniform, they can be quantified and beyond the minimum required.

    Most of the problems with CSM can be solved easily by weighing the CSM ,

    and then mixing the correct weight of resin and doing a uniform application.
