I apologize, I have been playng with fiberglass since I was 5 years old. It's easy to forget basic garage supplies for most don't include a 30 gallon drum of west systems in the garage.

SO, after 5 pages, 43 posts with over 1600 views, only post remotely on topic is the originating post.
Starting with the 2nd post....... it took off another direction and never came back around.

I think this was the quickest hyjacking in OSO history.

makes sense, diversification, there are many that think that energy (oil) may shoot back up again (all the middle east has to do is tighten the screws) couple with the fact there is considerable speculation of large scale inflation before this recession is over. This would make the 'green' blowboat more marketable. Reggie is a smart man to cover both bases, plus having the express cruisers fish boats and center consoles, he now has hit foot in every aspect of the boating industry. Now no matter what direction the market goes, he can adjust production and be set with a profitable position in the market. wasn't part of the delisting debacle due to too many eggs (merc) in one basket. now with full scale diversification whats to hold Reggie back?
