like this that make me sometimes awfully glad I'm fully occupied
with a boatbuilding project otherwise I would be forever building
till the end of my days trying to satisfy some deep down boat urge

- I'm not sure the quoting is still accurate in this thread. In any
case, I'm sure the Dynel is good if the issue is just abrasion.
However, I think at the partners, and perhaps elsewhere, localized
crushing is part of the picture. In that case I'm guessing fiberglass
would remain superior. Not that you couldn't have a bit of dynel over it.
