      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. spider cracks?

    Its gonna be a bitch to replicate that non skid pattern .
  2. new stiletto? any news on this cat?

    There's still the Torro 34 . But then again i haven't heard or seen anything on that front for awhile .
  3. Where are they now? - Retired America's Cup Boat

    Seriously turned my head when it was launched but you've got to think its pretty poor of Ernesto to leave his mess around for someone else to clean up . Sadly he's not the only one to use Valencia as a dumping ground of shattered dreams .
  4. Nacra F18 infusion MK3

    Sorry i didn't mean to make it sound so extreme .You can get trailing edge fractures that are only on one side of the plate . Gives a nice little hinge to keep popping the gellcoat off . Again I haven't done any work on Nacra's C boards ,but it strikes me that the edges are painted whereas all the 18s have clear coated carbon ?
  5. Nacra F18 infusion MK3

    No not C foils but a few different varieties of F18 plates . Larger sections coming away may mean some underlying stress fractures ,particularly where the boards exit the case ,ie. point loading .Gellcoat is also notorious for having a low tolerance to flex which can contribute to those symptoms . Invariably it pays to strip the external coatings back to the laminates to determine what the next step is .
  6. Offshore Prescription Eyewear

    You need to have a look at the rest of the site . Duncan's just singled out the goggles .
  7. Larry's AC50 Circus

    Beaten by seconds .Touch'e
  8. Larry's AC50 Circus

    I think it was the 45s
  9. Frog

    Jesus Groucho ,great effort , very impressed .
  10. Larry's AC50 Circus

    Maybe its about time you pulled your 12s ,Iaac and Black Heart posters down off the toilet wall.

    In Australia Bartz will do a sunglass with a prescription insert .
  12. Larry's AC50 Circus

    I for one am glad to see the 50s will have a purpose after the AC . Would of been even better if those beastly 72s were used . But you'll never beat the pure efficiency of the 50s platform and their transportability . If it all goes ahead it will certainly put a dent into the opinions of all the knockers who said the cats will never have a life after the AC .
  13. Nacra F18 infusion MK3

    I should add it can come off in swathes with no signs of excessive flex or stress fracturing . Usually end up having to ring the customer with a bit of bad news. Some craft you can seriously blow off large areas of the gellcoat with a bit of light air from an air compressor .
  14. Nacra F18 infusion MK3

    I get a fair bit of work repairing Kayaks, ocean racers even 505s that are epoxy laminates with foam or honeycomb cores but with a gellcoat finish . It does tend to complicate the repair process. Most are done well but i do get a few where the gellcoat hasn't bonded at all well and can just peel off when removing masking tape .( existing gellcoat not repaired area )
  15. Does your dinghy have a name?

    My first FD was named Suzi"s Ski Trip by its previous owner , because thats what she missed out on for him to buy the boat .I threatened to call it Sooky Suzi , much to his wife disgust but ended up reverting it to its original name 'Liquidator' In another class i borrowed a new un-named boat to do a nationals which i promptly textered 'The Pork Hunt ' across its transom . The owner just didn't get it when he got it back and was wandering around his house repeating the name ,shaking his head until his daughter said "Dad listen to what your saying"
