      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.

    Jim, a quick technical question: During the construction, after laying the foam where you want it, what is the very next thing to go on? I've read people mentioning about skimming a layer of thickened epoxy over the bare foam surface and then applying the glass? If so, what's in the epoxy? Would it be say west with a bit of silica or microballoons or what? And would it be: Foam >> thickened epoxy >> lay on glass immediately >> pour laminating resin on top of glass and roller it in >> peel ply or Foam >> thickened epoxy >> allow to cure >> roller laminating resin on >> lay glass >> roller resin up through glass>> peel ply ??

    Sure you would. Just tape over the groove with parcel packing tape before you start.

    For a D6T I get 37.35 Jim, in those little yellow pictures, is the black area in the cockpit the open hatch? As in the hatch swings upwards on its hinges? Also, are you having a keel-stepped mast or putting a post under the mast step if deck-stepped? If so, isn't anyone going down the hatch going to immediately bump into the post (or mast), with not much room to manoever round it? Have you considered sitting a deck-stepped mast on top of an I-beam, located under the deck, to open it all up down below?

    No. It worked fine for me yesterday. The boat looks great by the way. I'm being a lurker and following from afar and you might just have inspired me to do some boatbuilding once the snow goes. Keep the pics coming!

    Hi all, Please can someone provide a link, details or pics of how to: Cast the bulb Attach the bulb to the keel fin Attach the keel to the hull - Is this usually lifting?

    And 28. Don't forgive everyone everything, Just most people most things. I can think of exceptions.

    Ok, apart from numbers 8, 15, 33, 34 and the second half of 39. I'd delete those and add to the list, "Break free from the shackles of superstitious nonsense and take joy from living the life you have."
