    Brexit, WTF

    the north is wealthy, have you ever been there?? If half the country is doing all the work and the gdp was same and larger than the UK you can see your argument holds no sway When the wall goes up it will be just under Florence to Rimini below that is north africa, the mafia is a net drain on the gov Italy has proven it can run without government or finances, nobody else in the EU can do that

    Fuel polishing in Van Isle

    yes, its the removal of sulphur from the fuel which the industry then learnt was a lubricant. Cummins started to make fuel filters with some kind of lubricant in them as many engines had issues with seizing injectors and older ones with injection pumps Was an issue on lots of various high, medium and low speed engines
  11. This one is more complicated as the 2 companies had some kind of relationship where intellectual property was passed as in the 2 cases I highlighted above

    F7 Folding Trimaran...This is interesting

    I guess this answers the question about who owns the molds in MHD or didnt get paid for them or something complicated? Boat building just keeps the entertainment coming and has for its whole history.
  13. is this going to be another Burge v Swarbrick story or a Kirby v Rastagar?
