    Are you making fun of my trained monkey? Look I paid a lot of money for this fellow and he's sucking me dry with his, often frivolous "needs" and of course the training, the many years of training. Don't be making fun of my monkey. I'm the only one allowed to spank my monkey, though the better half does have some privileges as well.

    Great video - I was holding my breath as he ran the scalpel around the edge of the roof gutter - I wonder if they end up getting rust spots where he touches the metal, or if the blue paint starts to lift where he just goes through the clear top layer.

    The heat treatment to get compound curves looks a good trick.

    Be pretty hard to use this method for the marine industry given the share size of our parts.

    Why couldn't the hydrographic be floated on a wetted down hull surface, then maybe a squirt bottle treatment to finish it off (hydrate it). Man, I'd love to have a printed carbon hull, the next time I show up at a race. It would scare the hell out of a lot of buddies. Sorry for the eye strain Tony . . .
