      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. Timber veneer composite panel

    When I was building my F82R I was looking for a good looking and strong (abusable by winch handles and beer bottles) surface for the cockpit floor and seats. The idea was to cover the sandwich panels with 3mm thin wood. I chose Kambala/Iroko because it was cheap and i thought it would be up to the task. More on that later.I covered the planks with masking tape and glued them with thick and black dyed epoxy onto the panels. Next step was to remove the excess epoxy from the joints, sand everything fair, masking of again and fill the joints with black and thick epoxy. After realizing that it was impossible to leave the wood untreated I sanded everything and applied countless layers of very thin sealing oil. I am still happy with the result. My boat is most of the time in my barn and protected from the sun.

    Looks great! Is a boat of this size road transportable?

  4. Actual towing weights of Corsair / Farrier

    Hi nyker, I live in germany and have finished my F82R last summer. I have no problems in the roundabouts with a dual axle trailer. I would never put my boat at risk with a single axle. I have not weighed my boat yet but think (by comparison with a two horse trailer) it weighs around 1500kg incl. trailer. That might be on the edge for a single axle trailer. My trailer has dual drum brakes with a central water rinsing connection (gardena). Works well
