  1. An old thread, but interesting to me as a former boatbuilder, and current sea-wall repairer.Concrete cancer due to any embedded steel framework must be a concern in structural uses (except for reef building), especially in such a salty matrix. I have not read the literature mentioned here, so this may have been addressed there.

    • Yep. I’ve already pulled together another blog post on this. It’s easy to think up all kinds of possibilities. And as it just so happens I’m headed to the sea tomorrow and I’d love to give this a try.

  2. This is a great way to make concrete pipe, wall panels, microconcrete roofing tiles, biogas tanks, cisterns and many other things. I haven’t had time to locate up to date examples. If you find recent examples of people using this process then please leave a comment and link.

    Note: The last two links to boatdesign.net gave me error messages that there’s malicious content. They worked fine the day before.
