      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. Is there ANY Antifoul that works? ( Bottom paint?)

    This product is not an anti fouling coating, nor is it advertised as such.
  2. Underwater Max Prop Lubrication

    Also look at the shape of the spinner halves at the forward end. The Max Prop has a distinctive narrowing while the other prop remains much straighter: Further, notice the flat surfaces under the Max Prop blades. Clearly noticeable even when the blades are feathered. Don't see those on the other prop.
  3. Underwater Max Prop Lubrication

    I disagree. Look at the hub ends:
  4. Underwater Max Prop Lubrication

    The forward end of the hub doesn't look right. Too thin. Plus, there are large flat surfaces under each Max Prop blade, which I do not see here.
  5. Underwater Max Prop Lubrication

    You don't need two tubes to fill a Max Prop, certainly no Max Prop model I've ever installed or lubricated. And BTW- the feathering prop in that picture doesn't look like a Max Prop to me.
  6. Underwater Max Prop Lubrication

    Gosh, only a dozen or two sellers of Lubriplate 130-AA on Amazon. But you're right, why use the lubricant that is recommended by the manufacturer
  7. Trump is a racist. Any question?

    That is not true. You can love the pedophile but not be one. What you are is a pedophile-lover.
  8. Trump is a racist. Any question?

    Trump is also a pedophile. But that doesn't mean that those idiot enough to defend him are pedophiles too.
  9. Is there ANY Antifoul that works? ( Bottom paint?)

    Of course it's bullshit. This guy doesn't know what he's talking about.
  10. Underwater Max Prop Lubrication

    The Max Prop is not watertight therefore most of the water drains out when the boat is hauled. There is no way freezing water could damage the prop.
  11. Is there ANY Antifoul that works? ( Bottom paint?)

    Umm... a global ban on copper beginning in 2020? I'm not sure where you are getting your information chief, but I'd find another source if I were you.
  12. Is there ANY Antifoul that works? ( Bottom paint?)

    Nobody forced you to live in Washington.
  13. Underwater Max Prop Lubrication

    Gosh, in over twenty years of removing, installing and repitching Max Props (all underwater, BTW), I have never seen the grease wash out in just two years, much less ever seen anything growing inside of one, including barnacles.
  14. Underwater Max Prop Lubrication

    You're saying that barnacles will grow inside the prop? Because that's the only place grease should be.
  15. Is there ANY Antifoul that works? ( Bottom paint?)

    A towel is fine to begin with. Or a white Doodlebug pad or gentle brush.
