Redoing carbon electric outboard in Composite Anarchy Posted yesterday at 09:56 AM Basically that, in uni, if not for overall cost and shipping getting rather prohibitive... I did some napkin calcs that come out quite a bit cheaper, especially when I buy leftover fabrics from outlets which is more than enough for my purpose. Well, my time not included, but that I can live with... Right now I am testing(once I'm home again anyway) if the bearings I picked up work as I envisioned, then gather the other materials... Though I am playing with the idea of using uni directional glass in most areas. For all that carbon fiber is miracle stuff, as I understand it at the lower end strength to weight ratio the difference isn't that big, but carbon still vastly outperforms in terms of stiffness no matter the grade. But since I don't necessarily care too much about the straight parts bending, I need to consider if it's worth the cost for me there. Different for the "outrigger" that takes a lot of torque, biaxial carbon seems the most useful there.
