      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. I really appreciate the help all of you provided. That's plenty to digest.
  2. The unit I'm trying to power draws 1,5 to 2.0 amps with max power usage of 24watts @10VDC. Wish I knew what that meant in terms of what kind of battery capability I need -- I'm sure there are hundreds of you guys who can splain. Any help would be appreciated.
  3. Would love to find a power block where I could potentially plug in batteries from standard power tools for running a GPS with 7" screen. Would normally need to run only 4 or 5 hours, but could be as much as 16 hours. The GPS would be the only thing requiring power because instruments are solar, my nav lights are LED using AA's. Since weight is a big deal, I don't want to carry a full size marine battery. I plan to remove the battery after every race to recharge.
  4. Weems and Plath, electric flare?

    Defender has the same one on sale for $67.99

    Won’t need a bilge pump
  6. Infuckers on the Fareast 28r

    Normally I would agree with Gbike on the amount of purchase associated with running only one line of the inhauler thru the ring, but it seems to me that you do get the benefit of more purchase by running both lines thru the ring. Not having an engineering degree, I’m certainly open to input from more knowledgeable folk.
  7. Infuckers on the Fareast 28r

    On my 28r, we run both lines thru the ring which I think improves the purchase. Nevertheless, that’s the way the class set up was rigged. It will undoubtedly be more effective when we recut the sail so the clew is higher. We have had no problem running the three lines thru the ring

    Hard to make a wake when ur hardly movin!
  9. Bobstay for sportboat

    I have access to the inside of my bow section, but have no idea of thickness before I begin to drill.
  10. Bobstay for sportboat

    Sounds like a nice approach. Yes, would like to know the size. Thanks
  11. Bobstay for sportboat

    I want to put a code zero on my sportboat and need recommendations for the best way to install the thru hull portion of a bobstay. Any thoughts?
  12. Alex W. you are wrong about 10r headroom. I'm a former owner and 5'11" with no problem on headroom. I have also owned a Quest 30 which also meets the headroom requirement. Dopo- you can PM me if you would like to discuss those boats.
  13. FE28R Tuning Guide anyone?

    Inhauler installed. First sail last night seemed effective for shaping jib. Seemed to point higher, but no competitive boats nearby. All Harken parts.
  14. FE28R Tuning Guide anyone?

    I'm expecting to install inhaulers on Typhoon Harry this week. Will post when completed
  15. Just a thought. Had a Quest 30 in late 90's which was designed with twin aft hung rudders. Because the tip of the windward rudder was always partially in the water, it was impossible to adjust so there was a consistent feedback on the helm. Depending on conditions, I could go from weather helm to neutral to lee helm. Changed to a single rudder and all of my troubles went away. May not be the same for the A35, but there may be a corollary.
