      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. Only in California...

    I'm with 8 hours. It's not a demographic issue, it's an environmental issue. They did the same thing here, banned plastic bags in grocery stores because people are walking out with 8 bags double bagged and plastic bags are trouble in our landfills and especially the oceans. They're an environmental nightmare. Take a look at the front page of this site, they frequently run stories about the problem of plastics in our oceans, like the whale that died of hunger because its stomach was full of plastic bags. Get with the times. Either bring reusable bags in or if it's only a few items, carry them out without a bag. I did that yesterday in home depot. I had six small items so I carried them out. There was a story out the other day that California's efforts to stem the use of plastic bags has been making a big difference in the Pacific ocean already. I applaud California who seems to lead by example.

    How about a Jet 14 in Florida for $650 Jet 14
  3. whisker pole

    Just find a used spinnaker pole from somebody with jaws on it. Then you can mount a spinnaker pole ring on the front of the mast. I may have extra Superspar spin pole rings, brand new, if it's a small dinghy mast. My brother probably has an non tapered spinnaker pole you could repurpose. Non tapered so that you can cut it to any length you need.

    Here's the link so it's easier to view. Not bad at $800 for all of that! Aussie 18 in Texas

    No need to take the discussion elsewhere. Lots of finds have good follow up conversations. Don't forget to look at APS. They have lots of parts readily available and they're only two days away by ground shipping for you. APS Spar page

    That's great! That's what this thread is all about...saving good boats.

    An Albacore in Buffalo NY for $1,200. Looks to be in good shape. Yellow Submarine

    A Bandit in NY for $950 NY Bandit
  9. A compression sleeve would be a tube of G10 that is slid over the bolt if I'm not mistaken. You could find that at McMaster Carr
  10. J40 build files

    Your only route is through JBoats itself. As others said, it's proprietary and the Johnstone's protect their product pretty much in perpetuity. I encountered this years ago when working in the industry in RI.

    Interesting that it's in sailboat hardware instead of under sailboats. Always a good find out there somewhere...

    How about an older International 14 in the Seattle area for $500 Seattle I14

    A gooseneck is an easy fix. I would go to Annapolis Performance Sailing's site and you could easily pick up a gooseneck that fits what you have for a mast and boom. They have a lot of those hard to find spar parts.
  14. Is this Nantucket harbor?

    It does have a resemblance to Nantucket harbor and the white elephant hotel but Hyannis is also a good thought.
  15. Dave, It can't be ignored that you don't have to worry about leaving enough money in the sale to help a retailer pay wages and rent. My "paying" job is to import and distribute ski equipment for the US. I'm in discussions with another ski company to bring them to the US but they have a direct to consumer model. They're happy to treat us as a retailer where they leave us a little margin but when we tell them we can build a larger presence for them in the US but we want to use retailers, they get cold feet as that means less money for them because there has to be money in a pair of skis for them, us, and the retailers. On a side note, I enjoyed walking the ski show in Providence with your dad a few years ago when I was working to bring Karhu skis back to the US and I met him to discuss the Rocky Mountain Sharpie. He brought the Clark skis and we checked out the show.
