      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. yep. new ph is big improvement.
  2. agreed
  3. Fastyacht, that makes sense. I went down the ProEngineer (Creo) rabbit hole 20 years ago. While Creo is very good for most of the work we do, It is not that brilliant at creating surfaces with G2 or G3 curvature continuity. Does anyone use Alias in the yacht design industry?
  4. From an automotive engineering perspective it still seems a bit backwards (1985'ish) to first create the 2D then import that geometry and create a 3D model. In our world we definitely create the 3D model first, it becomes the master and also contains relevant properties etc. (MBD). Then, if at all, we create a 2D drawing from the 3D model. The 3D model and the 2D drawing are bidirectionally associative. Is there a reason that the above approach would not work in naval architecture?
  5. This ^ The DMZ has always been permeable. Its intention is to slow not stop. I was in Camp Casey for a year. Where were you? what is the color of the boathouse at Camp Casey? ;-)
  6. I don't get this. You spend years on a custom design only to find out in the end that it will not be possible to build within your budget? Why not get some preliminary bids early in the process? Strange.
  7. Good price http://www.yachtworld.com/boats/2017/Homemade-Chinese-Junk-3072785/Irvington/AL/United-States#.WN1ef28rKUk
  8. Bob, I guess if you have a 3D model of the hull (including thickness), it would be very easy to determine the cabin sole?
  9. We took a one year sabbatical out in our mid forties. We were both fed up with our jobs, had just sold a company and so we sailed off in Oct 2009. The timing was not the best, the one year sabbatical ended up being two years due to shitty economy in 2010 and fewer re-entry options. I would recommend it and I would not. Unforgettable experience but stressful re-entry. It is difficult to find one, let alone two professional jobs in the same location during a recession. We did however end up on our feet. The cost of living during cruising ended up being a small portion of the overall expense for us. The costly thing was loss of income, and basically living on savings for an additional year during re-entry. Was it worth it? Hell to the fuck yeah!
