      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.

    Deck stepped mast. You have to disconnect the backstay to clear the hoist. Be sure to cram on the checkstays, or the Mast falls over.
  2. Olson 30 vs. Soverel 33

    Olson can be launched with a 2 Ton hoist. The Soverel needs a 3 Ton! Lucky, one of my local clubs has two 3 Ton hoists, as a Commodore had a Mumm 30!

  7. Time to Un-Zip! Wheeeeeeeeeeeeeee...............

    Lots of different zippers out there. Very few are aluminimum! It’s the salt that crystalizes when the water dries up that causes most of the problems! Then the corrosion set in! Most sliders are pot metal or plastic, with a handful being aluminium os stainless steel. It doesn’t matter, WD40 and McLube won’t dissolve the salt, water will! I do this for a living! But yes, aluminimum sliders are shit. Waxes and lubes are fine, after the water has disolved the salt. Sometimes i I almost feel guilty for charging to replace a slider. But then I realize that I have to stock a large inventory, and the time that it takes.

    He died a long time ago, he just hasn’t fallen over yet!
  9. Time to Un-Zip! Wheeeeeeeeeeeeeee...............

    McLube won’t do shit! Water, hot if possible, add lemon juice or vinegar (anything acidic). Try try this experiment in the kitchen. Fill some clear glasses, one with WD40, one with McLube, and one with hot water. Next, put in a large spoonful of salt. Watch what happens. The salt will stay crytalized in the WD40 and McLube, and dissolve in the water!

    Hillary Clinton was asked if Weinstein’s behavior compared to her Husband’s. She replied “Close, but no cigar!”

    A Cuben Fiber Blooper? Sounds like a solution in search of a problem!

    From the SoCal PHRF book:
  13. Harvey Weinstein

    Sounds like there were many cases of sexual assault, if not rape. Seeing what’s happened with Bill Cosby, I wouldn’t doubt that this gets prosecuted with criminal charges. The Polanski case is horrible. As talented as Polanski may be, that doesn’t excuse his actions. I feel the same about Weinstein. Comparable, but not equal.
