      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. i fixed one a couple of years ago which had a similar problem. We pulled the bearing assuming it was leaky seals but found the moulding (in which the whole bearing is fastened) had cracked loose from the hull grid moulding. they pre fasten/seal the bearing into the moulding then (probably with a dummy shaft) spooge the whole lot into the grid. fix involved getting rid
  2. the franken syd36 looks a pretty likely contender for southport. with the sugar scoop and mods, their rating has dropped from 1.065 to 1.061, going to be hard to beat in irc4
  3. l'A D unchanged at 1.065. that number is likely to be falling due to remeasuing some sails and some scissors
  4. doesnt seem to worry thephilosophersclub. thought thats looking more like a franken-boat these days,
  5. http://www.amazon.com/Ice-Bird-Classic-Sin...a/dp/1574091514 this should help to motivate you also
  6. mast gate, or where the mast goes through the deck
  7. pulling it together more would flatten it further, need to spread gunwhales to get extra rocker. having been involved in a few of these stressed ply boats with phil over the years it looks to me that the boat needed more spread whent eh seams were laminated to push more curvature into it, this would also mean that the transition are eround the end of the chine would be smoother. no doubt phils would be here later to comment further
  8. Whats the difference between a woman and a mosquito? The mosquito stops sucking when you slap it
  9. dont you mean testicle? singular
