      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. J22 bottom & keel refinishing questions

    Our J22s are in for six months, never hauled, fresh water, temps in the upper sixties to low seventies and we've never had a blister. Conditions are a major factor, especially warm water, but I put the barrier coat on to protect against blisters and to work as a better binder for the bottom paint, it's working just fine.

    There have been a couple of DNs on Ebay recently

    All good points. I bought a new 2004, then a Worlds charter 2009 and both boats I immediately pulled all of the hardware off and rebedded every fitting. It was always a shock how little 4200 was used. Hopefully the boat is still available and it was treated well. It kind of looks like it might be at a boat shop because there's a new Sunfish daggerboard on the deck which I assume they thought was a rudder.

    Good luck! Let us know if you get it...
  7. Foiling Moth Setup

    You should type Foiling Moth into the search bar on Youtube and satiate yourself on Moth videos. You will learn plenty. You can vary the main foil from the vertical through spacers/wedges that are jammed into the joint. The main foil vertical is relatively fixed in its angle of attack though I think Mach2s have two or three pin positions that you can vary it with and maybe other modern builds do too. Older builds like mine or Bladeriders have a single pin position so no variety in the angle of attack of the main foil vertical. I have a couple of wedges in my main horizontal to give it more lift.
  8. Foiling Moth Setup

    I'm a rookie at getting my head around everything too. I built my Moth and made a few basic mistakes along the way. There's a lot going on. It's funny when I let others sail my boat and watch them flail though...
  9. Foiling Moth Setup

    I wouldn't call the wand a passive adjustment, it's the active mover of the main foil flap. The Ride Height Adjuster allows you to fine tune the gearing so that you can lower and raise the boat as conditions permit. The rudder is a fixed unit but the twisting tiller changes the angle of attack of the whole foil and that adjustment happens in the head of the rudder.
  10. Buying a Star

    I wouldn't reach out to him to pick his brain. He bought the boat because he thought the new job was going to keep him around home and he could sail the weekly series but for now the job is a traveling job again so he didn't use the boat. I saw those boats. I'm sure they'd be fun to sail around but by time you have them safe and reliable, you could have spent the $4k and had no work to do.
  11. Buying a Star

    PM Carbon on here. He has a nice Star that he's selling. Part of the fast 77xx series. I think he wants $4k. Boat is near Boston but he has to go to Annapolis soon to pick up his 505 so could deliver.
  12. J24 frozen nuts

    Get a propane torch and heat them up. That should do the trick to get them loose.

    Looks like they're offering a second OD14 hull to go with the deal too. You can see it if you follow the link to the edison sailing center.

    How about a time capsule 2004 Laser that's never been in the water in AZ. That seems like a deal. Lake Havasu Laser

    A couple more and then I need to get back to work... A 1987 Rondar 505 for $3,500 in Detroit. Looks like a great way to get into the class. Detroit Rondar 505
