Re: SH 17 +carbon/kevlar

Now, Bob, there is a reason I can relate to!
A buddy of mine who builds boats casually mentioned that the last mast he built was "carbon fiber over birds-mouth eight-piece Sitka Spruce." (It wasn't Charlie Jones, who does that kind of jazz, too, but has an excuse because he makes a living with this stuff).
I would love to zing this guy with something about the Sharpie having "a bias-ply Kevlar davit-belaying flangus crosstree downhaul" or something like that.
(Fortunately, your Sailor, unlike your Kayaker, never asks "really, what's that?"
