    Our last dog, a terrier, would occasionally catch scent of a rodent or squirrel and get her game face on accompanied by a deep growl. My wife would look up from her book, nod at the dog, and proclaim, "Something needs killin'."

    Dammit, it's not called "Inheritance", it's called "Hereditary". Scared me so bad I didn't want to remember the name...

    I hate it when that happens.

    My money's on the airport.

    I think it's pretty safe to say that if he hadn't made the flight, we'd have heard about it.

    Show your boat sailing thread

    Yup. Right along with the depth, speed and Yanmar panel. Great, it's a no-brainer. Put the binnacle in and move the instruments and Yannie panel to the binnacle too. Next up, ratlines.

    Show your boat sailing thread

    It certainly makes a statement. Does your boat have two perfectly good panels at the front of the cockpit on which to mount a compass that you can ignore in favor of a gratuitous, twee cockpit obstruction that requires annual varnishing?

    I watched "Inheritance" last night after my wife recommended it to me. Super-creepie horror movie with lots of layers and a great performance by Toni Collette and the two actors who played her kids. Bonus: it's free on Amazon for Prime members. A sold four Snagges out of five if you like horror.

    Yup. Just give me a heads up and I'll arrange to meet you down there.

    I was in a similar situation at a similar time. I was on a first-name basis with the NWA-later-Delta crew on the the A-330 they flew SEA-AMS. Being in a startup, I wouldn't pay for Business class but I was able to regularly snag the port side exit row aisle seat right behind Business class and adjacent to the galley. The FAs would take the wine cart through Business and top me off just before hanging a left the galley.

    SFO often has flow control due to fog or low ceilings. I fly to the Bay Area at least 25X per year and avoid it like the plague. Oakland or San Jose are far more reliable. Unfortunately, SFO is where most of the international flights depart.

    Here's my install. Two 128 cell Sunpower E series commercial panels, 435W each (870W total), running to a Morningstar 60A charge controller. The panels are fastened down via G10 rods that are epoxied to the hard dodger and drilled and tapped for the 1/4" x 20 threaded bolts (4 per panel) that hold them down. Let me know if you want more details.

    Old swageless terminals

    Patrick Childress, who posts here on occasion, uses liquid butyl rubber in his Norsemans and seems to be able to reuse them many times. Here's one of his vids where he talks about it and he shows it in another:

    That's called "Thursday". A 20 minute delay on BART is within one standard deviation of on-time. Just go, you'll be glad you did.
