      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. Henderson 30?

    Sorry it took so long. I found the doc and here it is. First it is for the Nissan or Tohatsu 9.8. 1. Shave 1/2" x7" wide frome the aft 'lip' of teh well (This is the edge that the engine well hatch closes on). 2. Shave 1/2" from the aft edge of the engine mount bracket. The engine fits right in. I cannot remember if we just measured 1/2" exactly but we had the engine on a 6 to 1 pulley tied to the boom so we only ground off what we had to. We used new engine wiring but the same linkage cables. Another thing we did is, we raised the outboard plate at the bottom a bit so we now can just about fully lower the motor and the keel can be raised for ramp launching. Hope this helps.

    On Family Hour we put in a Nissan 9.9. We used the same controls as the Johnson but had to switch out the turn key. There was a slight mod we had do do to the mouning brakcet to get the engine to fit. The Nissan and the Tohatsu are the same size. The Merc is a bit larger and would not fit even but it was the same engine, just a different housing. This weekend I will see if I can find the notes on this as I got it in a previous post here.

    I just mesured Family Hour's last night. The base of the mast is 4 1/4" from the back of the step to the back of the bottom of the mast block that fits in the track. We will have the mast out of the boat in a few weeks so I could re-measure if you want then.

    San Francisco Bay. Where do you race your boat?

    Thank you for the update. Still not sure what we are going to do but we will be doing something shortly.

    Please let me know how the new races work. We have to fix the bearings every few years.

    We got our a couple of weeks ago. The mast bracket is still in development.

    We race ours with 9 or 10 on SF Bay. We also have a main that is smaller than the standard main.
