      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. Hose A is a great product for rough work. I'm afraid it would do a number on the gel coat though.
  2. My Catalina 22 (mock away) is in desperate need of a new bottom. Can anyone tell me what this evil tan paint is? Adhesion is spotty, but where it's stuck, it doesn't scrape, and it is so much harder than gel coat, sanding is nightmare. Any ideas on how to remove for a DIYer? Thanks ahead.
  3. That's why no one has bothered to give him a tool kit. It would be pointless...just give him a box of various sized rocks to pound with.Or we could arrange for various kinds of sand for him to pound.I thought he had the chicken for pounding...
  4. It appears she knows how to hold her caulk.
  5. Hmm. So he averaged ~6kt VMG assuming he tucked himself in bed for 8 hours each night? (4kt w/o the shut-eye). Something is amiss.,,
  6. Not the cheapest approach, but plug and play for a similar size boat: http://catalinadirect.com/index.cfm/product/2010/barney-post-upgrade-kit-for-c-22.cfm

  8. +1 I'd personally love a U20, but in light air PHRF, an S20 wil beat a U20 hands down given the ~70 sec handicap. I don't think S23s sail to their rating in light air either, but who am I.
