      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. Bronze Nuts?

    Too much loctite with a torque wrench could cause over tightening as the loctite will act as a lubricant. You risk really cranking it down before getting that 'click'.
  2. Sold everything to sail the world...boat sunk on day 2

    A fairway buoy can also have the flash characteristic MoA (dot dash).
  3. The Discarded- Rescuing a Tartan 33

    I'm still trying to figure out why the sole needs to be screwed down and have latches... Maybe I missed something but the screws seem unnecessary.
  4. The Discarded- Rescuing a Tartan 33

    If it's only one or two finger pulls, I would just free hand it close with a router or laminate trimmer, then finish off with a chisel. Or a sharp utility knife and straight edge if you can get it super close. Marking it out on green painter's tape is helpful too.
  5. The Discarded- Rescuing a Tartan 33

    Each insert should be good for two widths of cuts...just spin it around and cut another slot. I have seen shop made inserts with #6 1/2" screws in the corners, (or wherever it's supported), to use as 'levellers' if the material used is a bit too thin and doesn't come flush with the saw bed. ie: 1/2" baltic birch plywood.
  6. Visible Sea level Rise my Surfing spot

    +1 for Fanny Bay oysters
  7. Monsanto is killing you

    I can't believe this hasn't made it into this forum yet...
  8. Motorcycle Threads

    Not the best pics I know.....1989 BMW R100GS. My only vehicle for 11 years. Year round with a handful of snow days in Vancouver. Without fail, every time i approached it from the rear right side while she was on her side stand I fell in love all over again. Eats up logging roads and power lines, and more than a few +1200 km highway days. Very easy to work on too.
  9. The Discarded- Rescuing a Tartan 33

    Oven cleaner works great for gummed up sawblades.
  10. How low can you go? Polyester

    I was replacing some rotten deck core from the interior of the boat. Used it to bed the new core and stick the old skin back on. Worked fine in this application. Might not be the best for many other projects though.
  11. How low can you go? Polyester

    I've done similar work using System Three's Cold Cure epoxy. No heaters or lamps. All good.
  12. Tether clips

    Is a quick release at the mob's pfd mandatory, or just smart?
  13. Suggestions on how to remove Sikaflex residue?

    Enough to re-bed with sika? This is for a fresh water inspection port cover.
  14. Suggestions on how to remove Sikaflex residue?

    Thanks. I'll try it. The PO seems to have thought silicone was the best and only thing to use for sealing/bedding/gluing...you name it. The guys at Industrial Plastics and Pain say to use 'Contractor's Solvent', but I haven't had much luck with it.
  15. Suggestions on how to remove Sikaflex residue?

    Any experience using it on silicone? A lot of products say they work but they're always full of shit
