      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. Where do you work on your boat?

    I'm in Virginia, but down in Charlottesville
  2. Where do you work on your boat?

    Wow. Looks cool. In Virginia (I see boat registration)? If I may ask, how much do you pay for a warehouse?
  3. Where do you work on your boat?

    These are awesome!
  4. Where do you work on your boat?

    Not in a PUD. No HOA. We live out in the "county". Thanks everyone for the great ideas!
  5. Where do you work on your boat?

    Thanks for the advice. Those are nice looking tools! Crash: 4 hours is the round-trip time, but you are right. That's why I want to do it at my home. I will be redoing the mast step and any other areas I find. Fleetwood: Thats the thing I was thinking of. WIll likely need to extend the poles to get more height. Slug: Now that's something I hadn't seen before.I will need to look more into that.

  7. I am in the process of buying a 26' sailboat (S2 7.9). It will be on a trailer. The deck will need fiberglass work. I plan on taking on that project. My problem is that I don't have a garage big enough to fit the boat. Where I live is kind of landlocked too (Charlottesville, VA) . I plan on sailing out of a marina about 2 hrs away (which would be the closest boat yard too). I don't really want to commute 4hrs each time I work on the boat, so I am looking for suggestions that I can investigate near home. I was thinking of one of the canvas shelters, but not sure if the complete lack of temperature regulation would be a problem with fiberglass work. I can't afford to build another stickbuilt garage at this time. What do other people do? WHat about renting a large space (garage, warehouse, workshop)? Seems that would be expensive. Any other suggestions? Bart
