      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.

  1. I have mine on order now. Word is they are having them made. I report once I receive them.
  2. tylaska; I missed your post but I have sent you a PM. I could use 10-12 depending on price, but even a few would help.
  3. I have a minor oil leak on an older v3000 coming from the top of several of the bolts that seal the gear box. I one in the image happens to be below the the drain fitting from the deck spacer, but I do not believe it is the source. I have checked that fitting and there does not seem to have any oil present. Looking at the diagram of the winch gear box there does not seem to be a way for the crank case oil to find it's way to the top of the these bolts. I would rather not drop the bottom end of the winch which would be necessary to split the gear box, any thoughts? gear box link https://www.dropbox.com/s/ry6ce1vm0rdhi9s/nilssonv3000gearbox.pdf?dl=0

  5. Forever FYI Rigging Only doesn't have that size, but thanks
  6. DDW Are you out there, interested?
  7. Jolie Just trying to see if a group might want to share some of the setup costs. A dozen pieces might be a little costly. A couple of hundred would certainly bring the cost more in line.
  8. Fuck off Moon I'm a cruiser, like to be self sufficient. How do you swage a terminal in a remote location. I must not be alone in my desire to make up my rigging as there have been mechanical terminals for years and there still many cruisers that prefer them. And theye are still made,just that Navtic has discontinued their line. But thanks for your input
  9. Bam doesn't have them
  10. I have searched high and low for replacement cones for my 8MM Navtec Norseman fittings, and like others before me the results have not produced results. During the search it was suggested that a machine shop could produce them, perhaps a CNC could make the process easier. So heres the deal, Im not a machinist nor do I have the equipment. I do have a couple of the cone still in original packaging which could provide dimensions and such. Further, I believe there is a market for these goodies, I came across quite a few sailors also looking for these, the 8MM seem to be very popular size. Any thoughts, or machinists out there?

  12. Ventura Isle in Ventura has slips
  13. Malaya is a Wylie 45 sailing off Ventura
  14. My mast has welded attachment for our gooseneck. Mast is pushing 30 years and during our summer full mast refit, welds inspected revealed no issues. No rivets in this installation.
  15. HIN

    Please remember 3 years ago over 300 boats were seized in Mexico some with proper TIPS and HINS. Some with HINS displayed but owner absent and officials could not locate them on the hull. I would rather did it right. So just looking for the best method to "permently" attach the to my cold molded boat.
