      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.

    Very cool! I look forward to seeing her in Miami.

    We have been jammin on the next boat. Both hulls are up and we have been fitting and installing floors and bulkheads. We are also building molds for the houses on this boat. https://photos.google.com/photo/AF1QipMTvTvsFyYQFKj6KoqCX1jwLcwxrB5lGYgA_kld https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/aggNHHEmtjVTBWq7K3ANURcjPSTgYbvbBmYl0oBp3LujXUvaxhWV1incAdLVgUmzW8TXXY-4W3IOZ2ThfRG-9Z0rvdxoFsBPG6Rm8AmdMHTh06PqGtL6x-SjdvvQ_OBl6Cef24EN8ScbMso4LblkCf2jILcRHc2TSf_BT_92LnXe7OSJIs7zKnixBHL8aW-acxFXwa6acIY6rUcNA8-wE-2LvWLq0ysDZob6sfhKcqiW2-tyG-MMF7_8XuR0NW9dmLip7viTxc-kCUJlE9EL9nukyHyFqIMGzz1DOQWXjurGYsJdxv_BkJ8xlJaN9srY2QdAUEiAZytcsJzSgpQ2l_sAkkhLQtqF5GpBM-xcW8mRU0T5MIqaCn14cSO3PuknzwJGifyJbhGyOV3Fq3o1G1jaiOJn-D-m34Y9t2GFY_3jyYuKd_nMAaw2nkSIN9CJ-uXbmOmPCvyUNGpJx2zOsvbmqyHDoYiR568buOu6ncavy9MXkicfFmRUQ6rPkr4JNILOrfMKuKEByIC5hhaWhNdmGQAJzfLI2hywpoeas_-hTEHKn-od9sHfwu9zOUirpqDXzPIRnwgaYEkrz5VOgMyywSUjscIVJNGvg4qSTr14CFZHsQ=s675-no https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/Kf9UuvVae2gJam7nf46z5RDimSJGGHp89dCafAiZ5mtTCBvl0OkNlWF4zDFfrURVw2IstSsohC2muz2EK19Cn3OLy0TD17UD41AtdZVzzNOQ4GzbU0ZVQTVAHpCK_isYc-jJMzblUCPuvX_O1Nx18PGxml29Oy07ZsktbIWdjf4Beda_lEkio2btuRRfE-20Xv_wj6QUD8V46nH-9ECcLqdMxygQPRLSzfhDuokdi5HTPnXAfdMLFo0NibZseNvX05EEDpQ0b2wLVo4RA3pPluGNG2GX8TGafu0Mm-Ep-ivMjMR18aQnL6A8l58LYZI7bg2JPAJ58B9WMvWiqTZmSb8yj0kTToq0FaZwUCfm0sKLF2fYYrpzkrHZZJBYYYOVGfVsMTcnxOUm6qzxI5m-bxmDlLyVf66seBKP8vTuxFLTaQAHkwvhe6KuLLEUZZwIywbKKJ2rVzgExjgulDL0Fz9MZuAIGmAOI7fErYaPEB4-4EOmGYvod5bx4WoejsSGDaDFc5cy93AXH4LdkeVgdzknEYttyhZxPQ4X2G4nxWQWWoscjID2FUW_ygNWpwzSrf14_7IYOEYxi8C9tYenbKdLhBItmRv857HMIdA3Hp0HiU8EMQ=w507-h675-no https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/vJMFr75hacnXLPsD8F0pnKLft3evod92x5Zjq5t9CvyFfpy0hjwKxy572gu9E2LScbzMspcMqvPC-TvEkp1YpsVD_CSSKMIkdL2bradRTS4sAKL1DM_4wY3binoBeJuu5dMKl6-_A1fohFEdkR6OGZOJcvKNqwLYrr6bGPnDtNGZiDpQKJJ5oBM8JQc0E-riQZjI8_zy2v5ESjpxyCyY1rVJKbGOJF9A6pSsjyjTNNIlHgGdECmxfcRzlstPOXBO2aETaFB5Nk064uRFBr0ks-U306u-eLCEMTJ5oQsPCpBtRbDgJTHOByvA_Rdkkoc0DETdHDXaESI2rbr7E3mM0wtCS8wZ5JT9SO6G8ee1e_DPzwUpHmY8rrWE9ZeiW46SPrg1UgypGvCrm2XyEj8q86tT1nfmFi5NiYddK8BreDrXaodcvdXjnnbJ1Ivv7XXpppgUmPmLSNShuAn86ateP6j8vVV5qEwvF9GQhfhVMV9Mo7c6r2LTwMn0v_NKOye1nlWKj2BLLxAM1Khn8HERame71NlCT7zaFqHrUN5Vbl3eiNqrHPvGbiYHIF3hDYjT0zyxpv-5TvRAUqIkIFCvhVklDBaSLQ8dWNmbQlwmNhr8wROa1w=w507-h675-no

    Well we impressed the most important person with Bazinga, our next client. We started a new build in May for a Canadian fellow living in Grand Cayman. This boat will be a two stick rig with no daggerboards and bigger motors. We have extended the hull mold 12" in depth, which increased the hull beam 12" and the overall length to 50'5". I think this boat will come in around 28,000 lbs. we'll see how close I am this time. This boat will get a genset and ac and a three cabin layout. Here are some pics of progress. https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B2Gt-VIoTuDuSnhLQ09IMFFRdnR2LUh0X1l1bTUtOG4zcVNn https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B2Gt-VIoTuDuQUl1R2hRZG5YcDdpclo0MHg1UURocDFnU1pj https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B2Gt-VIoTuDuRWJycV91enVuZC1RVERrczJjaUw1N24xNXhR https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B2Gt-VIoTuDuSEQzQWFYMG9oc0IxQXRmSXBrdGlvM3BaMHUw

    You're right about the clip, here is the northbound video. Wrong about the windspeed https://youtu.be/h83Rsj-xU3c

    Here is a short video of ou sailing from Jupiter to Miami Christmas day. true wind mid twenties to about thirty. Boatspeed was 9-12 at about 40 degrees apparent. The boat was very happy as were Brad and myself. https://youtu.be/6B__npj8I1o

    The owner , Brad, spent the holidays with his family in the keys with Bazinga. He is delighted with the boat as am I. WE sailed the boat down Christmas day from Jupiter. It blew high twenties to low thirties. The boat was doing 9-12 kn at about 45 apparent. with 4-6 ft seas. Sweet. I will share some more photos soon. Everything worked with no breakages. Most bitchin!

    We launched the boat this past Friday, sat in the travel lift slip for the weekend and last night motored 1/4 mile to a marina slip. All is well so far. We rented four load cells and weighed the boat . 19,600 lbs. WOW. But this not a bare boat. This includes the water maker, oven, life raft, fenders, extensive dock lines and fenders, a huge solar array with wiring and controllers, boat tools, full electronics. I think we are ok. Sure I wanted her lighter but she is still floating a bit high on her lines. We will start sailing her soon. The traveller is indeed on the hardtop. There are lots of reinforcements, I don't expect issues there. The owners have changed their plans and the boat will live here in Palm Beach for now with cruising plans for the Bahamas and Caribbean. Here is a launch video. Sailing stuff to follow. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wV-qkYdZb4U

    We fit the daggerboard halves screwed together into the trunks to check the fit before joining the two permanently https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B2Gt-VIoTuDuNVk4Szk4SjduT3hZOUxTanUzdVcwWW5WbVlR/view?usp=sharing
