Most of the Mullberry harbour barges for the Normandy invasion on D-Day were concrete and a few sailing yachts have been made out ferro-concrete, so it aint over till the fat Springer floats. Do it Toes, do it , you know you can ! Foo you`ve got a PM.

When I was in Vietnam, there was a ferro-cement boat project going on, and the boats were really quite stylish, compared to the concrete cargo hulls built during World War II.

A concrete idea, if I ever heard one.

I am sure it's a "springer toss", you don't need to name it after me...

Toesup is in Vancouver,WA now, one of the major manufacturer of Libery Ships.
Concrete ship building at it's best.

Toes................There are no limits to what the TBW will create. Almost afraid to hear what he has scheming in the back of his noodle. Toes plays Polo with the cement Springer--crushes the compition!

It would be cool if you include a cement mixer drum in the superstructure.
