      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. Best Marine window sealant?

    Tony at Select Plastics in Norwalk, CT turned me on to Dow Corning 795. They use it to reseal-rebuild deck hatches (plexi to aluminum). Its adhesive power is stellar and the expansion cababilities exceed that of any other sealant that I can think of. You can remove it if needed and not damage any surface. When I replaced the windows in a Frers 33, Tony told me to use the 795, put 4 screws in the window to hold it in place for the 1st week. After that, take the screws out if you want. You don't need them after that point. He was right. I used GE silicon caulk for most everything with good results. Now I only use 795 for everything.
