      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. J22 bottom & keel refinishing questions

    Thanks for the responses. I will try jacking it with the trailer pad jacks and then lower onto a block to take the weight off the pads so it doesn't hand there too long
  2. I recently bought a j22 that is in pretty good shape. Has what appears to be vc offshore that needs to be redone. I have sanded everything to the gelcoat but the bottom couple inches of the keel. does not appear to be any barrier coat presently. Plan on applying barrier coat and vc offshore by roller. I have a coupe of questions if anyone can shed any light. 1. Is it safe to jack the boat up using the 6 point adjustable trailer pads to elevate the hull enough to get the keel base above the trailers track to sand and refinish the bottom couple of inches? Looks line the easiest solution but not sure if the hull can take tge pressure or just deform . 2. Anyone know how much interlux 2000e is required for a proper job on a j-22. Thanks
