      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.

    hug Life - Really? Says the guy named Turd Sandwich! :lol:
  3. Is no blush epoxy really zero blush?

    OT: While walking around on Lido Isle in Newport, CA, the other day, I saw a stunning example of your collaboration with CLC being assembled for its first splashing: the 31' Proa. The builder spent 3 years at it, and it showed.

    I'll forward Mr. Betts name to her...Thanks for the pointer, Bob.
  5. Valiant 32 rudder

    My niece (by marriage) bought this boat last year, and needs a new rudder, as the current one has been deemed "wet." She is saving money to have a new one built, but I thought I would ask if there are other "options" out there. . .Got one laying around? The boat is in Pleasant Harbor Marina on the Hood Canal.
  6. Attacks in Philippines

    Oh yeah, that's working out well...NOT! I am fine with that, so long and someone besides US taxpayers are paying... At least if we are paying, the job will be done quickly and correct, hopefully killing as many of those scumbags as possible. With no regrets.

    But it's so ugly!! Does it have to be so ugly?
  8. BoatSmith Builds a Wharram Ariki 48'

    +1 good question. Boatsmith +1. Nifty when someone takes good design a bit further... Could just worry about the Sun going all nova on our ass!! And don't contribute to the karma of grudges! Check lashing before leaving dock

  10. Best Sailing Knife

    The edge of the blade goes down, of course. If the edge of the blade was up, serrated or not, instant disaster!

  12. Best Sailing Knife

    Some newer serrated blades use a round tooth design that supposedly cuts without the jerkiness... As for sharpening serrated blades, a cotton buffing wheel and jeweler's rouge on a bench grinder. :-)
  13. Perry Sliver Class Day Sailor

    Bob, that will be above and beyond entirely...Kim's dream, your design, the builder's craft: breathtaking result!
  14. Un-Sound Boatworks...

    My blocks were delivered yesterday afternoon, as Mr. Boynton promised in his recent communication. Thank you very much.
