      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. Cold molded boats, how have they held up?

    Stunning boat. That's a great shot.
  2. plexi for mostly-DIY hatch repair--where to find?

    $100 https://www.mcmaster.com/#cast-acrylic/=1a5af71
  3. Staysails

    Night Runner has a Genoa staysail (150% overlap) that is awesome under the jib top, or on broader reaches under the spinnaker. I'm a huge fan of that sail, it's a nice way to change gears while cruising too (it's an uptick over the heavy staysail when the wind goes lighter)
  4. Whiskey Anarchy

    1792 Small Batch Bourbon
  5. That was funny. Cruel but funny.

      Yes, a little harsh.  Maybe a bit too easy. Still..... They are slow.

  6. Pilothouse For Puget Sound, $40K Or Less

  7. Pilothouse For Puget Sound, $40K Or Less

    Islander Freeport 36
  8. East Coast version of a Moore 24

    I had a Morgan 27 that was a good forgiving boat. They can be had for your price range, although you will have to deal with a masthead rig. If you want performance, something like this will probably go both ways pretty well. But it will cost you (not $10k ). Oh, and I also let Paul know that I think his rig dimensions are off. 17 meter I dimension on a 25 footer seems a little oversexed.
  9. A drift up an English creek with lots of old boats

    It's like playing whack a mole with those E's, check you eclectic spelling again I have a spelling checker, it came with my PC It plainly mark for my revue, mistake I can knot sea I've run this poem threw it, I'm sure your please too no It's letter perfect in its weigh, my checker tolled me sew.
  10. Easy sailboat ownership

    Try PLA (corn starch) 3D printing as the pattern and use that for investment casting. Oh, and welcome back sons.
  11. Trump: Tax Reform Can Create Millions of Jobs

    One of the main arguments about dropping tax rates is it frees up capital for investment. Big companies don't need that, they are sitting on billions and don't need a lot of help with reducing their tax rates. It was humorous (in a sad way) to have Paul Ryan come to Boeing a couple weeks ago touting the tax reduction plan. At Boeing, who basically pays almost no Federal taxes year after year. Tax simplification for the common man, yes. Giveaways to big business, not so much. We could use some relief for small and medium sized businesses to gain better access to capital. Fed policy is hurting them.
  12. Smoky skies

    We had some smoke from BC wildfires earlier this summer, but it wasn't as bad as what is happening now. I had a bunch of ash on my car this morning, and when I went outside at work today my nostrils started to burn. Some of the guys said that earlier the ash was coming down like snow. One of our smoke alarms is going off at home so we've had to remove the battery. Check out these pics from the carbon cutter thread. It's not some weird color filter, and it's not your typical marine overcast (you can see what that looks like upthread). Nasty.
  13. CATARI comes along at Pacific Seacraft

    Here's an authentic Sichuan place. Karaoke and everything. It's got the atmosphere, the food is not americanized. https://www.yelp.com/biz/twilight-bellevue?osq=chinese+food We went with the whole family for my birthday a couple years ago. my better half didn't want to go in because all the girls with short skirts going to the karaoke joint next door, it looked kinda dicey to her. But it was my birthday so I prevailed. Food was great, the best Chinese I've had outside China. And better than some I've had in China but those are stories for another day.
  14. My newest project

    Geez, I hadn't noticed that the first time but now I see the Intensifier Disks. Nice work!
