      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.

  2. How to build large format display

    Originaly there where two KVH maxi displays on my boat (Compass and Log) First the compass got water in it so I back engineered how data was sent to the display and built a new one with 7- segment LEDs (Top) Then I added a LCD standard RS232 monochrome to see if the would work. (Middle) Not very good in direct sunlight Bottom is in photo a KVH display for speed but is replaced with a NASA yacht repeater. (Bottom) It displays only 1/10th of knot. I missing the 1/100th decimal though.

  11. Does my mast really need spreaders?

    I have replaced my standing rigging on the X99 using the spin and genoa halyard. One side at the time though. Used the main halyard to hosit me up the mast to do the replacement. I heeled the boat over so only the side with correct rigging was loaded up.

    I have a Raspberry Pi that does all the NMEA stuff. So I need theGND10 to be standalone to make it work
  14. Garmin GWIND + GND10

    On the GND10 there is a USB port that you can connect to a computer. Does it send AWA and AWS if you have the GWIND connected? I need to replace a tacktick windinstrument that is on the bottom of the sea.
