We’ve been busy visiting manufacturers around the country! I spent last week in Knoxville. First up, a visit to the Sea Ray plants with Hagemeyer distributors . Impressive! Great boat building. Lots of Fiberglass and all first class. They flush all their polyester guns with acetone alternatives.
But the one they use has water in it and it flash rusts the tools and will not allow the resin to cure out. This means they have to deal with haz material disposal. Bio-Solv has no water so the excess resin cures and causes no rusting. Hey we learned that the finish guys love it too because Bio-Solv removes pen from vinyl seats!
Speaking of first class boat building, I also visited the Skiers Choice facility. They build the Supra and Moomba ski boats. This has to be the cleanest factory I’ve ever been in. Coupled with the really nice people and awesome fit and finish, I’m dreaming of a new ski boat to bum around in this summer…
Oh yea, while I was hanging out in the Knoxville Hilton Gardens, I got to see the Boston Bruins win the Stanley Cup! No one at the Bar understood why I was so excited. I had to explain that the game they were playing was Ice Hockey. Apparently, they like to float in their water, not skate on it in Tennessee.
We are really excited about the growth and acceptance we are creating with Bio-Solv In the last few months. Bio-Solv is now available through Sherwin-Williams Industrial Sales Staff, Orgill and Composites One, along with our existing suppliers Port Supply/West Marine, Jamestown Distributors and Hagemeyer.
After cruising around Tennessee, it was off to Portland Oregon for the launching of “Haven” a Tom Wylie design 48 foot performance cruising sailboat. Built by Schooner Creak Boat Works, she is a beauty! And, Yes, they used MAS!
