I was doing some refastening today, and the question came: “with all the space age materials being used now, why not screws and other fasteners that don’t rust, corrode or be subject to electralisis??? Ceramics, supper glass, super fibers, etc??? They make engine parts out of ceramics, disc brakes on race cars, they have glass parts in high tech applications, why not screws??? here is a great idea for a grad student in a physics/chemistry lab working with these materials. This must be a moneymaker for someone. And for sure, I will but them at twice the price I pay now, not to have to refasten my old wood boat ever again~!
