      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.

    Actually, that is a Webasto diesel fired hydronic boiler. The black thingy on the right underside is the system pump. I'm sure they have this installed correctly, but on a sailboat it must be mounted fore and aft. I learned this the hard way. Sure Marine Services rocks.

    Thanks Bob for solving the mystery. I guess i'm too interested in the pics and not reading enough... That certainly explains what appears to be a smaller radius.

    Hey Bob, it appears the radius at the leading edge of the cockpit seating is larger on deck #1 than on deck #2. If so, why or is it an illusion. Also, what are the holes cut in the coamings for? Ventilation I assume.

    Looks good Kim. Having just completed installing a webasto boiler in my boat I can say that locating the boiler and exhaust line was the most challenging part. One thing to be aware of with the new location is fenders, lines and other boats getting too close to the exhaust outlet. Not sure about the Wallace , but apparently the webasto can melt things....I'm sure you're well aware.
  5. My newest project

    With the open coaming I have visions of my wife pulling the crab pot back there and watching as the bait container drains onto the deck and slowly migrates towards my butt. I suppose one could add a slight curb across the back for such instances.

    I'm curios as to the pros and cons of having a wrap around cockpit coaming vs. an open concept like the Bulletproof 43. I've mocked up both iterations for my Cape George cutter and have yet to decide which way to go. Wrap around would seem potentially dryer and better for lounging, Leaving them open makes for a larger work area and perhaps more practical for a tiller? I also like the way the forward part of the coaming is pinched in a bit to provide a larger landing space outside the coaming. Spell ck. doesn't like the the way I spell coaming. Am I missing something?

    Ha! Reminds me of my early 20s and the shower curtain. Orange and alive. Didn't seem that big of a deal at the time.
  8. My newest project

    Try Pete Langlie at port Townsend foundry. I talked with him at the boat show and hi mentioned 6000 different molds.

    kdh, Thanks. We have a ski building weekend party scheduled in December with friends. Boat pics...well, I'm still working on the boat and currently have the cockpit/ hard dodger area mocked up. I need to make some decisions so I will post some pics and hopefully get some advice. Might be a week...

    My son and I started building skis last year. These are his, and our forth build. Nothing like skiing powder with your son on skis you built together. Just adding to the drift.
