Default NanoXcel any Manufacturers using it for hulls??

This product is so strong , lightweight, performance, appearance superior to standard hull layup it can cut 25-30% of the total weight of the hull. which can translate to up to 10% increase in speed with the same power. We are looking into it now.

Yamaha is using it on the 2008 Waverunners. They claim a weight reduction of 25% for hulls and decks.
