: Marine in Seattle and man do they shrink when dry and stretch
: when wet. They become so tight it is scary. I am interested in
: trying some Maroske fittings where do you buy the fiberglass
: sleeves from. Also who has the best black bungee cord I have
: found some that don't even last for one season and others that
: last forever. Some just loose their springyness. I forgot where
: I bought the best ones. Thanks. Joe

You can get the fibreglass or carbon if you want sleeves from Sollar Composites. The "light" grade is are sufficient.
