Back in May there was a post about CSW "Miles Gathright, Material and Process Engineer for Boston Whaler, has contacted me and requested that I send him a chunk of CSW, presumably for analysis. I have shipped him a 60 lb chunk that was formerly the starboard stern quarter of CSW. I guess the factory has taken notice of all this folly"
Any further info on the subject?
Lots of interest an post at one point, no answers and ? no interest?

As I reported in the CSW thread, Whaler received the chunk and acknowledged that it was full of water and all beat up.
I asked what was going to be done with it and was told they weren't sure but would probably repeat the tests that I had done, measure the water in the foam, maybe send some foam out for analysis, ect.
I haven't heard anything more. If I do I will report it in the CSW thread.

Is Whaler giving "refunds "on partial returns of boats...I guess the folks in Florida realy do read what is going on here

was amused to find this in the Whaler site FAQ:
Q. I think that my older Whaler has water in the hull. How is that possible?
A. Boston Whaler uses a closed cell foam. It does not absorb water.
Perhaps that's the FSL (frequently supplied lie)...
Any follow on info floating?
