Re: Odd Carbon Monoxide reading

Matt, I suspect that you could briefly reach that sort of concentration just by being downwind of someone idling a pair of big petrol engines nearby. Wouldn't worry about it, nor would I waste epoxy trying to emulate an imagined incident!

Worry more about epoxy sensitization, my friend, and take care of your exposure.

Sorry I missed this response and others. My post subscriptions went a bit odd.

This is a great clarification, thank you.

Have you heard the news? Esmeralda is OK.

I had resolved on a voyage around the world, and as the wind on the morning of April 24, 1895 was fair, at noon I weighed anchor....
