$786,000 for four chargers? I missed that.

Nice of the State of Maryland to fund that.

I wonder what the payback might be if it had to be privately funded.

I will agree with galvanic corrosion.

The delamination is interesting. I have seen that with heavy steel plate sections (as a flaw rolled in at the mill). I have never seen it in such a thin...
