      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.

    So sweet! Thanks for keeping the pics coming...
  2. Something different for CA

    Is the FB definitely a solo perch? Might be nice to welcome the Mrs. up or maybe a young'n to help drive. Could be designed for 1.5 people so nobody besides the driver and their SO would get too comfy sharing the space.
  3. If you're seriously considering Blaine, don't forget to consider flying into Vancouver, B.C. It's on the "right" side of Vancouver proper, i.e. closer, instead of SeaTac on the other side of Seattle.
  4. You can see the Blaine marina from I-5 so it can't be that much harder to "get" to than Bellingham. I've chartered out of B'ham several times and like the town a lot. Many more marine services nearby and some good brew pubs, university town, etc. create probably a more attractive community onshore.

    Gents - Any thoughts on shortening the hardtop a skosh?... I keep covering the last 5-6 feet and the second post with my finger and like the idea of more uncovered area on the aft deck. I know...I can build my own...this one is for Kim, but I keep imagining being anchored in some remote inlet (following the R2AK?) and wanting some lounge space to enjoy a nice sunny day or the long daylight hours. Any way to avoid the 8' dink in a 6' pickup bed look that appears to come along with the new stern? Looking sweet fellas!

    No experience with this race but have a friend in Div 2 and had a question. Is this meant to be a rhumb line race? or is that just a feature of this year's conditions and the non-planning boats in the class? Thanks!

    Mad Dog looks to have just finished.

    Thanks for those pics Randy! Have fun and be safe!
  9. Go Jefe Go... This has been a treat to follow. Thanks Bob for sharing and best wishes for these last miles!

    Is this dude single?

    Cool stuff yet again! Very impressive to see they have their techniques honed so it seems like this is hull #10 rather than hull #1 of a custom design. No need for batting practice...they really get after it! Thanks again for the pics/updates.

    Ha! Funny when the typo slips through! Thanks for clarifying. Thought for a sec it might be some special double secret term (maybe a pre-curser to COLD-molding )

    Can I ask what polar planking is? I see the strips going on the frames...maybe 3/4" x 3". Any idea the wood? Spruce? Looks like they just rip them on the saw right next to the frames.

    The pic of those frames reminds me of the first pics of those badass workbenches just as Frankie was getting going...and hopefully just as fun to watch.
