      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.

    Ajax. I assume you know the rules for buying an anchor. Buy the biggest anchor you think you need. Put it on the boat. If no one laughs at you then go and get the next bigger size. Following that philosophy, I now have a 45lbs Mantus decorating my IP31.

    Show us some tits and fuck off noob
  6. Uglyboat Admiration Society Hang Out

    I do admire 2 things. 1: the balls it takes to even try something like this and, 2: How well he matched the bow pulpit angle to the bow angle of the Santana
  7. C&C 36...will it float?

    Agreed. Our crew composition is the same as Kinardly's, which is why the first job, after we bought the boat was to replace the tiny 13 gal holding tank with a 49 gal one. Were good for a week or two. The only problem is keeping the fermentation at bay.

    There is a great article in Good Old Boat, a few issues back, explaining it all.
  9. Works every time. BTW there will be a snow storm in Montreal mid April. That's when mine is coming off.

  11. Bareboat charter in 2nd week of May

    Give Emerald Coast Yachts, in Pensacola a call. http://www.ecsailing.com/ They are a small family type operation. Peggy and Rick are very easy to deal with. We have chartered with them twice and will probably head back again next December. The sailing in Pensacola is great and the beaches awesome.

    The cable run is 19' and the circuit is protected by a 10 amp breaker. I have not measured actual amperage when the fridge is running. The breaker is as the installation manual and their cable sizing table recommends 8awg starting at 18' . I bought the wire thinking;" Let's do it right" before checking whether the bleeding connectors were available. Thanks all for the suggestions. I'll update this thread when I've done something.

    Thanks for the quick response. Option 2 had occurred to me but it seemed even more of a kludge than option 1. Good point about securing the wire close to the terminal.
