 And Sunfish are going to be "injection molded"?


No, he used the wrong words, he meant infused. (As in resin infused)
They could well be using injection molding. Infusion is done under vacuum with a main mould and a bag and the resin "infuses" because of the vacuum while injection uses the same materials, but with an inner and outer mould, with or without vacuum but with pressure injection of the resin. Where you are using old school CSM laminates which require a high resin ratio, this ensures enough resin, whereas the vacuum bag can over consolidate CSM leaving the laminate too dry and thin.
Ive never seen an infused part that has been too dry from oveconsolidation (rather than dry spots caused by poor routing of the outlets etc) they are usually swimming in resin!

If their swimming in resin, somebody has fucked up the infusion, big time.

So, for those of us who don't keep up with the thread daily - what's the rimas sitrep?  Last I read, he had not been heard from since leaving Monterey?  Is that still the most current news?  
 
I still think he's scuttled the boat and is sitting in a bar somewhere in Baja laughing his ass off at us.


Grifting off the Mexicans?

This discussion about umm, grapes reminds me of an old Polish tradition.
 
It seems that every Polish mother takes her daughter aside the night before her wedding to let the bride- to-be know how a Polish marriage works. The mother tells her daughter she had this same conversation with her mother the night before her wedding. She then takes out a beautiful, ornately carved, miniature wooden chest. Next she takes a small gold key and gold chain from around her neck. She unlocks the tiny chest with the key and opens it. Inside, the chest is lined with plush red velvet and there are two oval indentations. The mother explains to the daughter that her future husband is being counseled by his father at the very same time, so he will know what to do. She goes on to explain to her daughter that after their honeymoon, she is to take out the little chest, open it with the key which she will wear around her neck and without a word, extend her open hand, palm facing upward to her new husband. He will hand his new wife his balls. The wife will smile as she locks the chest with her husband's testicles smooth passion fruits nestled safely in the red velvet indentations. The new wife will then tell the husband that if he is good and does as he is told she will periodically allow him to have his balls back at her discretion. If he is bad, well, too bad for him. The mother's final words are; Remember honey, you have your husband by the balls and he knows it, use this power wisely and you will have a long and happy marriage. This tradition has been going on in Poland since time immemorial and perhaps explains why Poland has a lower divorce rate than any other country in the world. Like everywhere, although men like to think they rule the world, Polish women know better and Polish men are well aware that there are no women in the world as intelligent, hard working and beautiful as Polish women, so they consider it a reasonable price to pay to marry such a woman. In return Polish women let the men talk about being the superior sex as long as they don't carry on too much about it.  
True story! 

I've heard that same story for a few different cultures. But I always assumed Italy has the lowest divorce rate. I looked it up and I wasn't even close ... http://www.countryra...t-divorce-rate/
 
Since I made up that story a while ago, I find it hard to believe you have read it elsewhere.  Nice try though. 
 
FYI Poland is far more Catholic than Italy.in spite of the 1.0/1,000 divorce rate, 87.5% in Poland, 76.5% in Italy..

Well played Ed, very well played.

Even the French kiss has been improved .... By the Australians 

Wait, what's an Australian kiss? An open mouth alcohol-fueled exchange of love with a porcelain receptacle?
 
 
Not even close. 

Wofsey wouldn't understand, by time he's analysed the situation and written the 3 page report about it the moment would be 100 miles up the road.
