re: carbon fiber and boat hulls (not starting a new thread)
It has been mentioned before about how, since carbon fiber
is so conductive (well, the fibers are), lightning
a carbon fiber hull's integrity. Fantastically expensive to build
and absolute toast if zapped by Zeus. If you are Larry Ellison,
no problem. Me, a bit more.
Anyway, good to meet you and yes, I do agree that not all
new tech is desirable (or needed). Take my 1911, for instance...
no, wait, you can't have it ;-) 104 year old design and it is still
use. The laser grips help, though.
