      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. I have some 24" and 30" Bomar hatches that are leaking between the hatch frame and the plexiglass. I am planning to replace the plexi and rebed to the frame. Is the Dow 795 a product to use or does it stay tacky? Any other suggestions.
  2. I talked with Buzz this morning and the price was not that bad. I am just seeing if anything else is around.
  3. Bob what you say is correct, but I don't have the stock mast length. The P is 5' diff from my mast to a TP. Also I am not using a North product.
  4. Sharp eye Bruno. My boat is not stock and I also want to get closer to TP 52 foot length to use their mains.
  5. It is a Sundeer 60. I have a Furlboom now, but it needs work and I am not that keen on it. So I am looking for a more conventional boom.
  6. I am not an engineer, but I don't think I would trust a Hobie mast out in the big blue. Thanks for the thought none the less.
  7. Calling Ballenger on Friday was on my list, but... I guess it will be Monday. Any SC 70 booms want to step forward.
  8. I am looking for a boom with slab reefing and a E dimension of 24.5'. Any North American leads would be appreciated and West coast preferred.
  9. Is the charging requirements of traction batteries any different form flooded lead acid. Or just the DoD that the bank can handle?
  10. Well pollsters the Sundeer was out to an early lead with voters, but no way that Frank Underwood would take a loss and the 471 came back. It looks like we have a tie. I guess it comes down to a coin toss.
  11. For my wife it is 471 only! I like Outremer, Schioning, Oram, but ...
  12. I was gun ho to travel to the end of the earth for any boat, but when you add two kids and the gear it gets a bit more daunting.
  13. I have viewed one boat that had the bulkhead issue and heard of another that had the same issue. This gives me chills as it is difficult to tell with all the panel coverings hiding the bulkheads. The repair cost was quite shocking!
  14. I have a friend that had a 471 and went from Florida to New Cal. He loved the boat. One aspect is the 471 is much harder to get surveyed, and get the family on and started compared to the SD.
  15. Here is a question for the group. Would you include location and logistics into the equation or just make it happen.
