      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.

    Hobot what's this? I have an identical pistol. My older brothers found it in a barn.. Maybe in the 50s? -jim lee

    Maybe so but you also like Vegemite so your opinion is suspect to say the least. Bob is right on Spam. Favorite snack (on the boat only, for obvious reasons) is Spam on a Ritz topped with spray cheeze. Mighty fine! I wonder if it would be good with vegemite? OK. I just used Google to look up 'spray cheese'. Who'd have thought such a thing existed. I don't even want to know how or why. On the other hand Spam is a staple in the South Pacific. Smoked oyster glued to ritz cracker with spray cheese. -jim lee

    Well thanks! I donno' what's next. We let the lease on the big building go. Tim/Tom would like the rest of the summer off. So would I. We bought a smaller old, nearly falling down building. ( With tenets ) So I guess the next chapter will be Left Coast slum lords. At least there'll be a chance of having some income. It was pretty neat that Ogopogo was able to beat the Sierra at WIRW (and win the class). I'm quite proud of the Dart being able to compete with those machines. Pretty funny that both builders are neighbors with each other. -jim lee

    Sounds like you're driving right past the Conway Pub. They serve one of the best Burgers in the entire area. -jim lee

    We ran into this doing our carbon tubes. It wasn't cost, it was the low viscosity necessary for doing an infused part. From what I was told, as epoxy is created less viscous for infusion, it tends to loose its mechanical properties. If your doing pre-preg, then this is a moot point, go epoxy all the way. Doing infusion, other factors can begin to be more important. -jim lee
  14. Back in the Early '90s I was running the Races at Sierra Point YC in the Bay Area. I was very pleased how much support I was getting from the club. Anything I wanted, "No problem sir!" One day I asked the Commodore about it. His answer was "This sailboat racing is the biggest money maker this club has ever had. Have fun with it!" -jim lee
