    Something about casting the first stone.

    Attaching the deck on a dinghy

    The material cost savings of goo vs epoxy is likely trivial compared to the labor you will need to remove the deck and reinstall it properly later.

    Sandpaper - 3m

    Norton blue is ruthless. The local autobody wholesale supplier was my go to source although my use is greatly curtailed these days.

    IOR landfills?

    And carpet. And pretty much everything else that is sold needs to have an advance disposal fee included.

    IOR landfills?

    I believe that only pyrolysis could work if the process was optimized. Then will still end up with a bunch of glass melt in addition to the recovered hydrocarbon mass from the resin. The other less friendly alternative to landfilling is waste to energy plants where it's ground up and then slowly added to the waste feed. The clinker ash would then be just a bit more special with the glass residue and antifouling slag. It's the old fiberglass trees thing again.

    SpaceX Sn9 and 10

    Murphy 's Law is typically cited as something like "If it can go wrong it will." Although an alternate early version which has faded from use is that "IF anyone can do it wrong, he can". THE Murphy was reportedly a test pilot and the second passage refers to a technician/mechanic. Source: a Murphy.

    Older well known IOR Boats

    1970, the Britt Chance revised Intrepid from 1967 was selected over Valiant, the fresh out of the box NYYC in house syndicate special. In 74 S&S came back strongly with Courageous.

    Who'da Thought Our Friends Down Under are Cheating Basturds?

    Came out of a J-24 mold but was magically more than a J-24, especially in chop.

    Who'da Thought Our Friends Down Under are Cheating Basturds?

    My thought as well keeping in mind the J-25's.
