That was a cool link on Boeing.

Here is Hawker Beechcraft's composite line for the Hawker Jets. Pretty Impressive in person, and since they are smaller the carbon machines lay it down much faster.

I have seen the AutoClave at Hawker Beech they designed for the Beech Starship...SO ahead of the times, but we have to that our government and the FAA for killin that one.

Hi Aaron,
Very interesting and your progress is astounding!
I am looking forward to seeing the finished boat.
Next time set up a time lapsed camera or two and I'll make you a movie.
Take care, Janet
