      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.

    ++++1111. When I was 9 my father bought a 1969 21 and we had no idea what we were doing but it didn't matter. We/I was hooked. Thanks Roger. I am keeping my eyes out for a 1970 or earlier V-21 to turbo-charge as a more money than brains project. Back burner for now, but it would be fun.
  2. 3Di Nordac

    Perhaps this was answered already. Can 3Di be left on the furler or does it need a sacrificial cover. Thanks in advance.
  3. 1985 C&C 37 CB

    JConk...make sure you sign up for the email list. Thats where all the action is. Welcome to the C & C family!
  4. Random PicThread

    And who is the lovely lass?
  5. 8 Bells for George Cuthbertson

    My first spinny set as a 12 year old foredeck monkey was on a C & C 35 named Golden Peace (LIS back in the 70's). He went on to buy a 38 while I was still a Monkey. I moved on in life and as an adult bought a 1981 40 13 years ago. Love everything about it. Looks and sailing ability and construction. Thanks to you George and your great band of Merry Men.

  7. Atkins & Hoyle Hatch Rebuild Leak...

    Thanks JS...will take it apart this winter and grind/sand to align the hole better and life seal them.
  8. Atkins & Hoyle Hatch Rebuild Leak...

    New O Rings with rebuild kit. The holes drilled by the plastics place were just off. Seems I need to start again.
  9. So I DIYed my midship and forward hatch acrylics and the midship hatch works just fine. The forward hatch, though, with the through the plastic latches, leaks through those latches. I took the original acrylic and gave it to the supplier who supposedly accurately reproduced the drilled holes for the latches. His tolerances were not enough for this application as the rebuild kit's gaskets leak. Short of sending it off to Hatchmasters for a re-repair, anyone had this kind of problem after a re-build and if so is there anything I can do to fix the leaks? Thanks in advance
  10. Pearson 10 Meter

    Loved the 10M. Sails sweetly (even in light air) and looks just as sweet. My buddy has owned on for 15 years and still enjoys the heck out of her. Built like all Pearsons...solid and low-tech. Cant go wrong with a well maintained example. Interiors were a little sterile, but that was of the era. Going from a Bristol 27 to this will be very satisfying. Especially upwind.
  11. Nav station lee cloth

    I put a vertical board in that I can remove when not offshore. Padded on the inside. Works great.
  12. More racing, Seattle style

    That reminds of Coney Island Beach...in July...on a Saturday...at noon. How is that fun?
  13. Norseman 447 vs pearson 422

    Pearson 422 has a lot of room for its size and it is well built. Sailing ability was sluggish and the looks are not nearly as pretty as the Norseman. Dock Queen = Pearson 422. I would choose Norseman otherwise,
  14. Homemade Sail cover: sailrite kit

    As a fun (and cost-effective) winter project I am thinking of taking my old dodger and replicating it anew, How did your dodger project go?
  15. Advice - Affirmation - Criticisms

    My 2 cents... I really liked the Westsail. I felt surprisingly big for its size and, of course, they are bullet proof in a blow. People dis it for its seeming lack of light air sailing ability but we got that thing moving in a long (6 1/2 days) light air Bermuda 1-2 race in 97' and we won our class. I do know many were finished by the owners which cause them to be all over the map quality wise. Good luck.
