    Monitoring 16 is required by the SIs. Saying "we didn't hear about it until we got cell coverage" implies you weren't following the rules of the race. I'm not saying that's the case, but that's what is implied.

    That was a valid argument when remote mics were expensive and found on commercial vessels. There really isn't an excuse to be without this capability anymore. A remote mic also allows you to kill the audio in the cabin and only have it on deck so the off watch can rest without the noise of the VHF. I don't want to get into a stupid argument over bullshit, so this is my last comment on the issue.

    I'm pretty disappointed by the number of "we found out once we got cell service" posts on social media right now. It's been several years since the days of shutting off the VHF after the start was acceptable. Continuously monitoring 16 is a federal requirement and is called out in the SIs in addition to the prescribed call ins. I understand shit happens, as we lost our masthead antenna during the storm in last years CYC Mac and our emergency antenna is pretty much equivalent to a handheld, but the volume of people I'm seeing saying this is staggering.

    When did No. 6 get banned, and why?

    And BJ's bullshit sanctimonious hero story where he claims to lobby on my behalf is a great example of my previous point. My account has been unlocked for a couple of years - not because of BJ.

    BJ.. My account is still here because Scot unlocked it. Perhaps consider that you aren't omniscient.

    Why am I still here, is a more interesting question. This place had its time. Seems like the fun is gone, and just the blowhards and losers remain. When the racing focus got watered down with the wooden boat rejects and people who didn't race, but just wanted to argue politics or other crap on a site with loose moderation, that's when the tide seemed to turn. And BJ.. You are just as culpable for the bullshit that made this place a shithole as the trolls were. Quit playing the damn martyr. A bully with an admin badge is still a bully. The erudition was a nice patina compared to the usual coarseness here, but you're not fooling everyone.

    Dieselgate follow up

    I have a 2015 wagon. Currently edging up on 90k miles. Most of those have been with modified software in the engine and DSG. Great car. Once VW gets done with this emissions bs the exhaust is getting ripped off and a GTB turbo is getting fitted.
  8. Hey, I know this may be a little out the box but I'm looking at buying your Db1. Are you the current owner? I found you while researching the boat. I know I'm supposed to go through the broker but if you feel like connecting let me know when you're free to talk. We can sort out an agreement. 647 535 9455. Looking to see if we can put a deal together by next week. 

    Cheers, Will

      I was involved with the boat, but I am not the owner. Sorry for the late reply, but I don't frequent SA much anymore.

    Fond memories of racing in Bay City. That thing is about 10 miles from me.
  11. I like my rights - all of them. You have an irrational fear and you use twisted data and rhetoric to try and force your fear upon others. Welcome to ignore, you ignorant, close-minded, hysterical jackass. You're free to say anything you want, I'll gladly defend that, but that doesn't mean I have to listen to your drivel.
  12. Hi. Take a closer look, Shife. (And welcome back.) I have studied both sides of the gun problem better anyone on our boards. I have organized the scientific input, and have gathered the conclusions of the major social sciences. I have tracked the historical content of Ashcroft and Scalia, and have discovered a post-1977 sham. I have presented virtually every modern study of gun violence here...only to have them reviled and thoroughly ignored. Virtually no learned men agree with the belief system of the NRA (which closely matches the belief system of the SA Gun Club). Look a few posts up, and examine Post 186. Tom Ray could not, and did not, answer two key historical questions. Your unfortunate Dear John to SA was in Aug. 2010, just as I arrived. You were genuinely respected, and you left the legacy and footprint of a quality man. Based on your rep, please look at the content of what has been presented...on both sides. I expect better of you than the trashy way I have been opposed. If you have quality content to present on this gun issue, I look forward to it. Again, welcome back, to a quality person, from a quality person. Um.. First off, you don't fucking know me, so cut the tugging at heart strings bullshit. It's cheap and insulting. Second... Nobody is forcing you to like firearms. If you don't want to exercise the 2nd, well that's just ducky for you. I don't want to stand in the street with a picket sign, but I support an individual's right to do so, regardless of the message. See how that works? Present all the opinion you want; it will not change the fact that the most dangerous item I own is a chainsaw. Let me know when you go on a crusade to promote chainsaw safety and reform. Those things are fucking nuts.
  13. Holy shit. This jocal guy is fucking unhinged.
  14. Somebody farted. Even with Carl on ignore, the crazy still seeps through.
