; not everyone will Get that one !!
Mongo wanted to ship me to where he worked, and teach me how
to use a hydrofoil , (way back then) when he was first selling his
I should have taken him up on it ,because at the time i knew more
about production composites, than most in the kite boarding industry...
and things May have turned out quite differently , (for him).
A note to builders :
there is a way make a rather Cheap but high quality mold , (.007" tolerance)
that can reach 300-F, (148-C) , without the need for placing it in an autoclave.
Doing that means you can now mix the epoxy you'll need for the next 2 months
and per-saturate your roll of carbon and pre cut all your parts needed for the
next 2 months, then place them in a refrigerator for later use ...
and that cuts down on a Bunch of man-hours labor because cutting 6 parts
is just as easy as cutting one . You can't really pre-cut a dry fabric because
the cut sides will fray and unravel at all the edges ; and then there's that exothermic
thing that makes a builder want to mix only 100g of epoxy at a time thing.
Without a heat-able mold, on a production line with 4 guys working ; one of them is
mixing epoxy all the time for 25% of your labor.
