      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.

  2. Thru-deck Fairleads

    Hmmm, never thought of asking them. Parts would have come from a shop on the Great Lakes. --Matt
  3. Thru-deck Fairleads

    Figured, but wasn't sure if they were completely unique since designed around the Harken block. Looks like I will have to make more. The one below came off the starboard #3 track. I'm getting really good at building shit for this boat.
  4. firefox v57 quantum

    I've always used the beta or nightly builds of Firefox and Waterfox, both at home and at work. Same with Mozilla and Netscape, always the beta, rarely the release. I can honestly say the ill effects were negligible while the benefits huge. Once they go gold with the GPU acceleration, you will see another massive speed increase. --Matt
  5. firefox v57 quantum

    Good lord you guys are late to the good stuff. I've been enjoying the speed and multi-threaded support for months it seems like. You can turn on GPU acceleration if you are really good too. --Matt
  6. Thru-deck Fairleads

    Anyone ever see a production part like the one in the photos below? They are cast and machined aluminum then powered coated. They fit a Harken 306 block screwed in from below deck. --Matt

    But of course, those chaps had mad street cred back in the day. It is nice to see the young whipper-snappers upping their game.
  8. Boat Yard Parking 101

    Don't leave your locked car in front of trailers in a YC boat yard. They have things and stuff and can move things and stuff.

    Ah yes, Screw Driving. Gives new meaning to having your box hacked.
