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.

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?
