    Is wearing sunglasses cool?

    Exactly. You'll worry about the cool factor in your teens and twenties, maybe even into your thirties. By the time you are in your forties (and worrying about paying for your kids' college) you will just stop caring. And in your fifties, when the eye doctor mentions early signs of cataracts and your pterygiums are getting worse you will wish you had worn them constantly.

    Non Skid Gelcoat

    Yep, and nothing will tear through foulies or skin faster. It is VERY anti-skid, though.

    Cheap fibreboard box - as weatherproof sailbox?

    This (as a second to IStream). Back when I was young and telephones actually had dials and were attached to walls we used to store things in cardboard boxes. To make the boxes last longer (as in years and years) we would varnish them. So, whatever leftover paint or varnish you can find for free (preferably something other than latex house paint).

    Sailx status?

    I am given to understand that Snags hasn't smoked\downed\shot\snorted anything in decades. He just lives in a state of permanent flash back. However, I would not trust my source on this. You never know with a cat of Snag's character...

    What To Do With This Cabin Sole

    Heat treating stainless

    The Melges 24 fleet is doing this constantly. I asked for another 30 seconds before the tack too many times to count so I could finish winding up (or unwinding) that f'ing rig. Don't know of any other classes that allow this (there may very well be some). I also have no idea if the OP is racing in a fleet that allows such adjustments while racing. If not, then yes, adjust the unloaded shrouds on the leeward side.

    A big project!

    Amid the vapid masses who spend their days staring at pictures of whatever their "friends" had for lunch on F***book we find this. Almost gives me hope for the world...almost.

    Perdock for Police Chief?

    Where's that blowhard from Hong Kong when you need him? Edit: I just remembered his moniker: The Dubinator!

    Reviving an outboard

    FFS, has anyone tried starting the f'ing motor yet!??!? And yes, it's a 4 stroke, so check the oil, provide new fuel and try starting. Work from there...
