      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. Hard vs soft dinghy

    I'm quite fond of my 1973 Johnson 9 1/2 hp 2 stroke, but I'm biased. My Dad bought it new, took good care of it, and ran it only in fresh water. He gave it to me about 11 years ago when he was no longer using it. It goes on the inflatable when I don't feel like rowing.

    ...does this link work ?

    I'm pretty sure that actually is the nesting version. Look again, I think I can see the seam, barely. Now looking at the photo with the sail up it is clearly the nesting version. Lovely tender.

    But thanks to the WayBack Machine (Internet Archive), much of their website can still be accessed: http://web.archive.org/web/20160329075735/http://bethandevans.com/

    The nylon/fiberglass steps only weigh 5.7oz. each. Just sayin...
  6. My newest project

    Offshore Spars sells Glass Reinforced Nylon ones, in White, Grey or Black. I wonder if they could be epoxied on, as Bob suggested? No holes then. https://store.offshorespars.com/spar-parts/spar-accessories/?sort=priceasc
  7. My newest project

    I have a couple of these, low on the mast, to attach the halyard to the head board or to zip the main sail cover up:

    That is so great! I have greatly enjoyed the entire process of this thread, and yes I have read all 13,184 posts, as have many, many others. Thanks for sharing Kim & Bob (and everyone else involved).

    Looks better to me too. Seems obvious, now you've drawn it there.

    I don't like the velcro ones as they don't do well where you are attaching the wire bundles to a bulkhead with a saddle or other cable tie-mount. It is awkward to try to get the bundle tight to the mount. I've started using these Releasable Ties wherever it makes sense as they can be reopened to allow changes and then be reused. It does mean there is a tail sticking out as I don't cut them off after tightening but they are rounded on the end so don't stick you and they can sill be arranged neatly: http://www.leevalley.com/en/wood/page.aspx?p=58891&cat=1,58953,58891

    Ooooh! Pretty! ...and shiny too!

    Thank you for sharing your photos. 300 metre sand dunes. Wow.
  13. Maggie isn't an "R". She's an XL ...which means she has the "R" hull (including, in this case the open stern from the "R", unusual in an XL), the "R" keel and rig, but she also has the full blown comfortable interior from the 37/40+ cruising version, two staterooms, large heads with separate shower, etc.. ...and some ugly green upholstery. Unless you are Irish, then she's beautiful. C&C went crazy in that period with the names 37/40???what was there a retractable piece? Xl, +, R...sheesh. In the year 1988 the then newest version of the C&C 37 went to market. They called it the C&C 37+ to distinguish it from the previous version of the C&C 37. This new boat was actually had an LOA of 39' 6". Eventually they realized they had mad a mistake calling it a 37 so started marketing it as the C&C 37/40+ There was a stripped down racing version called the C&C 37R with different hull layup with more kevlar, and a taller rig, deeper keel, a stick built interior more suited to racing than cruising. This version was about 1000 lbs lighter than the cruising 37+ Then some customers asked for the R hull layup, rig and keel, but with the 37+ interior. C&C was very accommodating to paying customers so built the boat the customer asked for. so now you have the: C&C 37+ (cruising) C&C 37 R (racing) and the C&C 37 XL which was a combination of the two above. Not so complicated is it?

  15. If you like the look of the Baltic 35, perhaps you should have a look at the C&C 37/40 XL? Maggie is for sale in Berkeley, CA http://www.yachtworld.com/boats/1990/C-%26-C-37-XLplus-2965372/Berkeley/CA/United-States#.WPVzLvnytaQ
