I am just an old boat builder. Started working with composites in the late 1970's/, early "80's when the only game in town was linear PVC's like Airex. I had the privilege to work with some early pioneers and watch the industry and technology grow. After over 35 years of building composite yachts, I can say we did a lot of stuff wrong in the beginning, it was trial and error- and no computers... this forum is a great idea!

Im a quality rep at hexcel salt lake city.
No degree, just got my foot in the door doing basic qc and gone from there. We are a prepreg manufacturing plant.
I joined the forum because I want to make race car parts.
Im currently looking into enrolling at Davis app tech. as my work will pay for most of it.

I'm on my own.
Began in 1989 working in a spin off of Agusta Helicopters as a designer, but I ended up to be responsable for the link between design and production departments first, and later on I became a responsable of the experimental department.
Then I switched to be the high tecnology department leader for Taema, the Italian Hercules's spin off.
Then I created a small company to supply parts the automotive industries.
Actually I'm focused on the final stages for the development and put in production of a composites version of the Robinson R22 helicopter.
After that,next year, I would really find a job abroad. Germany preferred.

I didn't finish my degree studies.

Structures and powerplant engineer for certified aircraft (FAA DER) and have an aircraft engineering and manufacturing business. Besides aircraft engineering services, mainly repairs and alterations, we build both certified and experimental aircraft parts from metallic materials and plastics. We don't manufacture composite parts... yet.

As a fun side project I'm working on an all-carbon/kevlar electric two-place aircraft. The entire plane, including tooling, is being designed in the computer and female molds will be CNC cut using rapid tooling methods.

Having fun learning about composites from the experienced folks here and contributing some engineering knowledge when I can.

I'm a one man band boatbuilder, i trained at Falmouth tech college in the late 70's then worked at Thames marine & other local yards before going on my own in 84.
Now run Seax Marine which i started 2 years ago, lots of general yacht repairs but increasingly getting into the building of fast rowing boats.
I find this forum an invaluable resource.
Cheers Keith
