      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.

  8. J22 Rudderhead - vertical cracks from tiler bolt?

    Cal 20 wood rudders crack there. Fix is to through bolt a plate on each side. They crack on the grain because the tiller connection only transferrs load to half the crossection of the rudder. Might be the same issue for you depending on how the rudder is built. Maybe post on the j boat forum here.
  9. White smoke

    Is there a good flow of water out the exhaust? Is the engine running warmer than usual? If so could be a weak raw water pump or problem in the mixing elbow such as a restriction in the raw water outlet of the elbow.
