To Chad,

I am possibly interested in buying a fiberglass dewar like the one you just 
built for Cryonics Institute, but without the bugs that they later have 

What are the inner and outer dimensions of the dewar.

What is the boiloff rate per day?

How much liquid nitrogen does it hold?

How often would one have to refill the dewar?

How does one stack the caskets inside the dewar?
Horisontally ?

What working hight is needed above the dewar to lift in the caskets?

What system would you reccommend for moving caskets in and out of the dewar?

What should one watch out for, so not to damage the dewar or so to best keep the
boiloff rate low? 

What improvements did C.I. make to the dewar after they bought it from you?

As I understand the situation, they made changes for about $ 5,000
to the dewar after they got it from you.

Would you be able to make a dewar with the improvements that C.I. later has 

What would such a dewar cost?

And what would it cost to ship it to Norway?

What are the weak points of the dewar?
How is it built?
How does it compare to thermos like steel dewars?

and how can one do repair work on it?

Can the dewar be lifted with a fork lift?

Does it come on wheels?

Ps. I am posting this to Cryonet too in case someone there is interested in an 
answer to the above questions too.
