    Old subject threads SHOULDN"T just be regulated to the scrap heap. There is often greater info in them than some of the newer frivolous 'ramblings'

    I agree. Some information never changes. I've tried to go back and find a thread that was a year old because it had info I was looking for and cannot find it sometimes.

    I'm now working with welded aluminum rather than steel to make a faster boat. Not necessarily cheaper than steel but more than glas and carbon fibre.
