      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. Think of it this way Tom: if you had a piece of plywood with a 4" horizontal stripe down the middle, and the edges of the stripes were exactly parallel, it would look like one even stripe while standing back 20'. Now cut that plywood in half vertically. Move one piece of plywood back 8', and view it from the same position as before. You would see the stripe on the nearest piece of plywood as being wider than the one further back. It's perspective. The same thing happens on a boat, its just not abrupt, as it is curved. To further complicate things, you need to look at the boat at different angles, yet your perspective will change with each angle. Getting that boot stripe right is an art. Fortunately for Kim, Bob is an artist. There was no luck involved in selecting Bob to design the boat. I made a very conscious decision based on his body of work, especially his double-enders. (And the fact that I have known him for more than 20 years.) Perhaps fortunately was the wrong choice of words. But I do stand by my artist comment, it takes a certain eye. At least I didn't call him an artist at the beginning of the project;-)

  3. In that case LOL - how about this?http://www.yachtworld.com/boats/2010/Ranger-Tugs-25SC-With-Trailer-2609352/Bellingham/WA/United-States#.UijmBz_hevU Better living space even on the trailer. Good cruising range and low consumption numbers. I hate to say it but if I were doing the RV on the water type thing the Ranger Tug would tops on the list. No rig it raise. After doing the U20 since the late 90's only trailered Sailboats I'm owning in the future will be little 20ft and under rigs heck even the Compac Sun Cat tip up cat rig looks damn good to me at this point. LOL Our 28 footer only comes out for bottom jobs even then the rig stays up. Ha This is mostly sailing anarchy right? This is sailing trailerable, 3500 # . . . http://www.yachtworld.com/boats/2012/Com-pac-23-Pilothouse-2637968/Portland/OR/United-States It cracks me up when someone goes through the trouble of taking a picture of there bilge for an ad, and don't bother bailing the rest of the water out. Looks like a nice, clean bilge too.
  4. I thought it looked familiar somehow with its reverse shear. Then I read Laurent Giles, and realized its Trekka's big sister.
  5. Is Dick's any good? I have seen it often on trips to Seattle, but could never bring myself to ordering a "Dick Cheeseburger". I'm sure it is probably good, (has to be with a name like that - plus its been around forever) but I don't think I could order one and keep a straight face.
  6. Somebody could probably make a jackstaff with the part that fits the socket on a different angle than the rest of the staff to get the lines matched up. As for protocol, I see classic boats like Chris Craft etc. flying a Chris Craft burgee on the forward jackstaff. Perhaps Kim needs a Splinter Class burgee?
  7. If the angle of the jack staff matches the angle of the headstay, it might not look bad. It is probably raked aft at too jaunty of an angle though.
  8. I like it, although I think I would like it better with either a canvass top on the back, or maybe no top. But that's just me being picky. I think it might be better on the coolboats thread.
  9. The grandaddy of the mac26x? I've never seen one before. HWSNBN's fathers boat?
  10. So Kimb, once the paint is on, think you can persuade the guys to wheel her out of he shop for some nice, naturally lit perspective shots?
  11. Negative Ghostrider, the pattern is full...
  12. Not sure what kind of hull that is, but I don't think its a t-bird. The chines on a bird are quite distinct, the transom is narrower. The bird also has more overhang aft, although that coukd be a weight issue.
  13. LOL Comments look good, but all I'm getting is the farking youtube donut...B*rstards. Try this:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AJQ3TM-p2QIor this - but not as good...http://www.comicrelief.com/about-us/video-vault/computer-says-no Thanks.
  14. Wow. They must have spent a lot of time with longboards on that. Glad nobody is trying to rush things now.
