notes on a conversation I had with Pete there, see
http://groups.yahoo.com/group/bolger/message/23430 . There are lots
of other vendors (try a Google search) but Pete seemed knowledgeable.
He sent me a couple 10" square samples of adhesive-backed UHMW, but I
haven't yet had a boat upside down to apply it. Wonder how it
adheres in cold temps?
(still peeved 'cause the Diablo's new Yamaha wouldn't start this
weekend - it wasn't THAT cold, just a bit of ice in the bilge...)
