      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 used plexus to glue a plastic track to a carbon mast. Works fine and is reasonable easy to grind off when doing replacements. I would not use plastic again on a boat with full length battens on a square top. The sides blow out after 2-3 years where the battens meet the track. I think I posted some pictures and info on the Leech 650 topic in this forum.
  2. Un-Sound Boatworks...

    I have a similar tale of woe re most of a boat of Harken fittings. Prices look real good here in NZ but months went by and my credit card was charged on day 1. I tried Mauri Pro after that - what a contrast. I bought some end of line wet weather gear - they charged my card - realised they didn't have any and then sent me a better, fully priced item at no extra charge. A few months later they sent me a spinlock cleat in error - I had the new one priority shipping in a few days and they didn't want the first one back. These feet have voted! Rob
