      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. Machinery movers in Kentucky?

    I think I have sorted it. Through a guy i met on SA 4 years ago actually. and yeah it is some serious rigging required. lowering out of a building.
  2. Machinery movers in Kentucky?

    I am working through the local guys, unfortunatly it seems hard to get any traction. And I have consistently been amazed by the power of SA in these sorts of situations.
  3. Going out on a limb a bit here. Does anyone know any machinery movers that might be able to go remove some equipment for me in Russellville Kentucky. It is installed so will need some de rigging. I had a quote before I bought the equipment but the mover has gone awol on me and I need it loaded and gone by the 19th of April. and the prices I have been quoted it would be worth a drive I imagine. I am looking at potentially having to go and do it myself but would like to avoid it.
  4. This would never happen to me, I dont have room for the phone charger what with the George foreman and tv being plugged in......
  5. volvo ocean race irish video

    Awesome thanks
  6. Hi All I have a J-35 I am currently in the process of doing up. And I am planning some quite serious non OD racing. I have seen a couple of J-35s without the Aluminium toe rails that run around the boat. Meaning the stanchions can move that bit outboard and it is a bit more crew friendly for hiking. I had it explained to me that it is as simple as, remove toe rail, countersink holes in deck, re fix bolts through holes - done. Now i ideally want to remove the toe rails anyway as their are some leaking screws sticking through the deck that are under the toe rails (maybe manufacturing process) and they are corroded in some parts. Just thought I would check to see if anyone had done it before and if it is indeed as simple as was explained. Thanks Andyxs
  7. Hi All, looking for a video with an irish comentator from the volvo ocean race, it was phenomenal with the irish sailor running through the conditions and iceberg challenges. I just cant find it
  8. Sea Shepherd gets a new ship!

    I guess the Dutch lottery money must have been dependent on a new boat? As otherwise they could have had the pick of a huge amount of oil rig support vessels that are essentially the same as what they have their. Except for the pods vs shafts.
  9. Engines are so 20th Century

    I watched the above boat in the three peaks yacht race and it proved fairly effective. certainly much more effective than most of the other rowing methods seen.
  10. Trenchless vs. Dig It Up

    if you are just replacing the existing pipe they can pipe burst. http://www.trenchlesssolutions.co.uk/services/pipe-bursting/ I do a lot of trenchless work in the UK, it is usually fairly painless

  13. J35 Bow pulpit plans

    Hi All, Bow Pulpit got smashed in some winter storms, I don't have it anymore, does anyone have any plans for a pulpit? I have emailed J-yachts to no avail and before I go and start trying to get my own fabricated with the associated costs of measurements/it not fitting etc I thought i would ask if anyone had any plans if they have had theirs replaced etc? Thanks Andrew

    Thanks, the measurement guide is really useful in that.
