Pocock makes racing shells. Not a line of watercraft I know much of anything about, although I have a niece who is rowing on a team (hi Morgan!). Anyway, Pocock has a couple of pages discussing the use of composites in their boatbuilding… worth a quick read. (Part I, Part II, and the FAQ’s)
Composite Yachts had an interesting display at the recent Annapolis Power Show 2010 that I wish we could see more often. Maybe half-built boats showing off their construction methods is only of interest to builders and home-builders, but I’m betting not.
