Algorithm for this type of c.p.Carmichael numbers is simple and I will illustrate
how to derive b) above starting from a). Largest prime factor of a) is 29. Check the first prime generated by 28*k + 1; when k = 4 we get 113.
Another set of continued product Carmichael numbers ( prefer to call them "spiral Carmichael numbers"): a)2821 = 7*13* 31
b)172081= 7*13*31*61
c)31146661 = 7*13*31*61*181
d)16850343601= 7*13*31*61*181*541
Important point: possibility of constructing such spiral Carmichael numbers strengthens my conjecture that, r, the number of prime factors of a Carmichael number is not bounded.
