      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. All I know is what it says in The FB thread - failure of engine and skipper. https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=10159454572535657&id=784525656.
  2. People keep speccing "white soles" you don't need white soles. You need non-marking soles. I've worn wetsuit booties for winter stuff in the PNW. When I bought them at the dive shop I went it ND rubbed them in the deck of his dive boat to be sure whether won't leave a mark many shoes with colored soles will be fine. The booties give good grip and are great for keeping you feet warm in wet conditions. But no arch support and for long distance stuff they may start to stink, bit great for rxes like round the county or southern straits. For fair weather races I prefer circa skatboard shoes.
  3. This is not even a really rough day on the Humboldt bay (eureka) BAR
  4. I am still looking. And. I am still considering dong this.
  5. Papers filed. I am going to Vancouver t sign off next week. Seriously considering this plan. Not just cause I'm heartbroken, but I've always wanted to do it. Wouldn't leave until next fall.
  6. I saw this bloke playing "Dancing Queen" on a digereedo. I thought, "That's ABBAriginal"
  7. On FB Shannon says the problem with the mainsail is the halyard. Shannon didn't expect it to last a week, and told rima's so, but it went more than double that.
  8. We use sikaflex when remodel swimming pools. Drill a hole 6" deep, fill with Sika, knock in a piece of rebar. Then we cover it with Shotcrete and plaster before we fill the pool with thousands gallons (read many tons). The plaster will never crack (the steel will never move) If you look at the strength of shotcrete steel, , and Sika, you will find the Sika is stronger than concrete. So if you hooked a backhoe to the steel and yanked it out of the concrete you would wind up with a chunk of concrete on the end of the rebar. Moral of the story: never use Sika on anything that MAY ever have to come apart again. Very few uses on the boat. Same for 5200 I believe Edit - sorry not sikaflex we use sikadur 32. Same company, but this is is a waterproof structural epoxy. Different than sikaflex.
  9. Hey Kailana, It was good to meet you and look at your Haida back in September. Wondering how you are getting along with her?
  10. The missus and I have many times. Even during swiftsure.
  11. Took the weekend off to go camping. Kind of cleared my head. But still seriously considering this plan. The Columbia looks good. Oooops, needs an engine. But could come with a valued liveaboard slip to get ready from.
  12. She's beautiful.
  13. Aaaaand that stands out for what reason?
