      Abbreviated rules   07/28/2017

      Underdawg did an excellent job of explaining the rules.  Here's the simplified version: Don't insinuate Pedo.  Warning and or timeout for a first offense.  PermaFlick for any subsequent offenses Don't out members.  See above for penalties.  Caveat:  if you have ever used your own real name or personal information here on the forums since, like, ever - it doesn't count and you are fair game. If you see spam posts, report it to the mods.  We do not hang out in every thread 24/7 If you see any of the above, report it to the mods by hitting the Report button in the offending post.   We do not take action for foul language, off-subject content, or abusive behavior unless it escalates to persistent stalking.  There may be times that we might warn someone or flick someone for something particularly egregious.  There is no standard, we will know it when we see it.  If you continually report things that do not fall into rules #1 or 2 above, you may very well get a timeout yourself for annoying the Mods with repeated whining.  Use your best judgement. Warnings, timeouts, suspensions and flicks are arbitrary and capricious.  Deal with it.  Welcome to anarchy.   If you are a newbie, there are unwritten rules to adhere to.  They will be explained to you soon enough.

Welcome to The ZoomKitty Blog

Rumor & Gossip


I must be one of the few people restoring a boat without a blog. I have decided to start documenting my progress to help other people see what not to do, and maybe pick up a couple interesting ideas.


ZoomKitty is a 1975 Sol Cat 18. I bought it last May after deciding that I needed something easier to transport than an Etchells, and I wanted a catamaran. I fell in love with the looks of the Sol Cat, and found one after weeks of searching.




Tonight I finally started the actual work after staring at the hull in my basement for weeks.




As you can see, it really does need to be faired. I am no longer regretting starting.




I only had time to do the keel and half one side tonight. Hopefully I will have enough motivatation to keep at it. First race of the season is May 22.

Good idea. will be nice to see pics before, during and after the hard work, and of course your comments.

Pics have now been resized, and added. I just decided to do this after starting the "hard work", so I will go back and review the before when possible. Thanks!
