    Cats use more materials than mono because theres lots more surface area so what you going on about . Live in each hull and stretch a net between and then your talking of cutting costs . who needs an acre of playing area between the hulls ??
    Is it sailing you get your kicks from or filling up half a marina and getting pissed with you cobbers every night ? :confused:

    Kung Hei Fat Choi however you pronounce it. Chinese New year is as noisy as the Catholic's New year except the Catholic celebration is deadlier. About a thousand were injured by fireworks last year, one kid lost his balls due to firecracker, two died from bullet wounds due to indiscriminate firing of guns in the air.

    Yeah Mas. I worked with Chinese before and had many Chinese New year with them. The clan pronounced it a different way. Then I saw Jakcie Chan on TV greeting us, saying it a different way. My Niece, who teaches in China, says there are many different way of saying it and most likely, they wil give you a strange look if not pronounced their way. Well, it is like here in the Philippines, we don't understand each other. Strange but English seems to be a common language.

    I learnt by "pillow talk", and was often quite cautious as the grins sometimes suggested that they were having a "lend of me" by teaching the occasional insult like "maichee bie, lu, lu,,lu chow boh heng" (pronounced in basic phonetic 'english') which was supposed to guarantee a violent response... :eek: :p :eek: :D

    I had quite a few Chinese friends, as I used to race go-karts at private circuits near Penang, Ipoh, KL, Jahore and Singapore during my two and a half years in Malaysia...

    Well guys , when i was at Skater we tried Infusion which in the long run offered to be way to much X-TRA work , and with that in mind .......we went back to an old standard layup , Vacumm Bagging everything which is something we did prior to trying infusion considering everything that is involved doing infusion has a thinner resin , etc ,etc .

    Hi and this is one of the rare times i will side with you on this subject !!
    Hulls i am not a great believer in infusion but decks yes along with any interior structures !
