    This may not be the appropriate forum for this topic but I would be prepared to demonstrate a time a cost reduction application for varnish work and gelcoat protection.
    Admiralty Coatings Inc. produces UV cured varnish with zero VOCs which cures on-demand in less than two seconds. No sanding is required between coatings and half the number of coats are required because no solvents are used.
    I await your comments.
    Best regards,

    I was thinking of doing one on “Once you become a hostage in pirate laden waters What now?” in conjunction with two of my ex military buddies that I served in the Army with in Somalia Africa. They teach similar schools for the military now presently. They are both retiring at the end of August and I think they would enjoy this. Is there enough interest in this subject before we submit anything? Please email me with feedback.
    Best Regards,
    Christopher Cooke
