    Can anyone recommend a good book or books on vacuum bagging and resin infusion. I have done a lot of hand laid work in the past, but I would like to start experimenting with these more advanced techniques. Thanks!

    Add to that if anyone knows of a comprehensive treatise on working with prepreg, I'd be interested to know about it.

    Go to this website:

    http://www.grpguru.com/

    This institute is run by Andre Cocquyt who knows just about all there is to know about resin infusion.

    And you can look at Henny van Ootmarsum's site

    www.fram.nl

    He's building a Farrier 39 trimaran using resin infusion. He's very enthousiast (is that english ?) about it. He sells a infusion starter kit so you can try it, and he can probably point you in the right direction for books.

    Good luck, Hans
