    Nice. You'll never go back to gas again...
  3. SloopJonB- Looks like I have the same situation on my 71 C34 (#91) Metal on the channels is flaking off...real ugly. Wondering about having the yard replace the channel plate during the next haulout (this winter). Did you do the work yourself or a yard? Wondering how much this is going to put me back... as doing it myself is scaring me...sounds of dropping keels are un-nerving...
  4. I was researching Kick a few weeks back and found a Kiwi forum with someone asking about importing her back into NZ. So maybe she is going home?
  5. Love it... If you posted this a while back I might have got myself into debt.... Although I'd call it FLICK to keep the club happy.

    VOR Leg 9 Newport to Cardiff

    Akzo have subsequently pushed Vestas out the back so what ever they are doing it is working. They really need to get over Yellow now with a shot at the bonus points to climb up beside Yellow on the Table and to stay in the podium hunt. If not it will be sayonara unfortunately for the Kaleidoscope Kids.

    Is football dying?

    It's too annoying to watch for me anymore. 2 minutes of advertising / babbling commentary for every 7 seconds of play. I hate that shit.

    Good luck to them and one thing Norway is not short of is kroner. https://www.backpackerguide.nz/7-whales-and-dolphins-in-auckland/ "More than 22 species of whales and dolphins can be seen in Auckland’s Hauraki Gulf," My recommendation to the whales is to stay well away from those Norwegians.

    9 yrs and no more attempts??

    After over 50 years sailing just about anything I have to say that I now find water sailing to be slow, boring and way wetter compared to my Blokart. I've done 85kph on a narrow beach in my Blokart and that compares with any ride I ever had water sailing. And it's a heap cheaper. Was that record at Ivanpah in MPH? Any confirmation of the 'new' Blokart record? I've heard some wild figures but seen no talk or vids.

    VOR Leg 9 Newport to Cardiff

    A couple of hours ago I celebrated the end of the Washington (DC) Capitals' National Hockey League team's two decades long draught from getting to the Stanley Cup playoffs, the most jinx-laden sporting event I share with some of my family members who live respectively in different parts of the US and in a remote village in Madagascar. We have not been texting or otherwise communicating throughout - or even between- the games, as I explained previously upthread, because of the jinx issue, except for very careful chosen cryptic words. But at least we can actually watch real live players skating on the ice, as opposed to the Live Tracker. The team cap, t-shirt, etc I own remain buried in my back yard. My brother and his wife and their grown children (who are not living at home) wear the team t-shirts and jerseys ("sweaters") while watching the games; however when together they all don't watch the game in the same room as some are too intense. I've been at their home for division playoff games in past years, and it's pretty weird. Growing up watching football, everyone yelled. However, with this group, just before one game started, there was a power outage. Without missing a beat, my brother called a family friend who lives about 10 blocks away to see if they had power, and if they did could we (there were 6 of us plus a dog) come over and watch the game on their TV set? They did and we did. They were eating dinner. No one spoke. Their friends made us popcorn. At the end of the period we learned the power at my brother's house went back on, so we drove back home. The Caps lost, the TV was immediately turned off and everyone went to bed. No one spoke. Tonight, the multi-multi-multi-cell phone conference call amidst four US states from one remote country on the other side of the world, with one another, was hilarious. Lots of shouting. But we were at the same time very careful what we said, because we are all wary of the jinx. And there are potentially 7 more games.

    Yeah! Well, I'd like a Maserati instead of a Corolla! Let's end this thread drift. Not germane to AC 36 developments in Auckland.

    Or have one CNC'd. For a lot of this unobtanium stuff, cheaper as well.

    One of them could have stuck to the rhumb line straight out of Newport and probably been in the thick of the fleet now!

    Not all of the accounts you have opened here have that capability. Try it with your Happy Jack account. Go on, I double-dog dare you.* * Trying to match the childish nature of Jack's "proof". How'd I fare?

    VOR Leg 9 Newport to Cardiff

    Things did not go down well for Deadly Viper Assassination Squad member Elle Driver known by her code-name California Mountain Snake. The sequence of events were: Pai Mei the old martial arts instructer plucks Elle's right eye out at training camp after she insults him. Elle pretty shitty kills Pai Mei. Wind forward years. Beatrix Kiddo (Uma Thurman) crosses swords with Elle Driver. Bea plucks Elle's remaining eye out using the legendary Pai Mei Eye Pluck. Elle drops Bea's sword and flails around screaming her guts out. Bea then steps on the eye, it oozing between her toes. Bea walks out, and we see Elle's Black Mamba slithering nearby. Elle yells "Oh Shit" and goes quiet, as Bea closes the door. Was Elle was bitten to death by her own snake or did she live but minus two eyes? I think Norbow leads a much quieter and refined existence, but keep an eye out for her carrying a bag of snakes just to be safe.

    BJ can lie as well as you can. I've seen it. But in the incident you are probably citing I heard he was lied to.
  25. I've not found that 90% do good work. About 40% do acceptable work. 10% do good work. 2% do fine work. Boats, houses, cars, all about the same. I've also found little relationship between price and quality. Many customers do not know the difference, or are willing to live with it, which is how many businesses survive.

    No meltdown that was a put down. Huge difference. But a traitor to America like you wouldn't understand.
