    Probably studied thousands of stanchions. this was literally the very first thing that came to mind when I read that. Maybe if HR had built sturdy "lifelines" like that, FH would still be floating?

    Looks like the Lightning blueprints got coffee moonshine spilled on them. Also love that the builder was going to sew his own sails out of tarp material (we've seen that many a time of course)

    How about power wash the hull first AND THEN take the pictures? I guess it's so we can SEE it was done last year? He has an entire ecosystem going on down there! I wonder what the kayak looks like...

    what is the line that the guy on starboard and forward is holding? the port side same line looks like it's connected to the aft end of the front element. also, the port mainsheet is going from wing to hull, but starboard is going directly down to the aft beam?

    "Sorry, my smartphone screen broke so I had to take pics with a Motorola RAZR I found in the passenger-side door of my '86 Accord. Got a great deal on a USB cable from Radio Shack to upload the photos, they've got great sales going on right now, you should totally check it out!"

    sweet, a camera to monitor humidity. also, "water weather"... "Cap'n, there's a storm a brewin' in the port bilge!" edit, to be fair, I know there are cameras strategically placed on large yachts to monitor systems, but the phrasing is just silly.

    You mean with me? (I am the project manager) I think a stern word with the people who bought Navtec would be more to the point. and to bring this whole bit together, i think you need to have a stern and pointed conversation with him/you. I hear Mr. Perry is adept at all things involving pointed sterns. coat, hat.
  12. just saw that on Drudge and my first reaction was to come to this thread to see if anyone posted it.
  13. You obviously do not follow the AC forum then... once you read his posts enough, you can read them without difficulty. And he usually has very insightful and intelligent comments.
  14. surprised this little gem caused nothing are those new winglets on the elevators?? and i think that's probably an air drop to the FH... gotta make sure it lands in the water though, don't want it to drop in ala Caddyshack
