    I am Seriously f*#^ing Impressed...Seriously

    that's not really a darwin thing.... when you're paying money to an operator you should have an assumed level of safety. Now, don't get me wrong, I don't, but that's because i've got some level of experience with old fabrics, old cordage, floridians, and sun.... I was in the sail loft one time and a parasail operator came in to get a hole fixed, the owner just looked at the dude for a moment and very flatly said hell no. Good move....

    505 vs. 470

    Yeah my 29er held tension, but you could see the boat bend (and feel it if you sat on the boat when someone pulled tension - freaky feeling!). I think some of the 470's are effectively missing a bulkhead about 3ft behind the mainsheet traveler? Sort of a "well if no one sits here, why have support?" and that lead to a bit more oil canning due to general lack of support. Not sure if that was a rumor - been a while. Thankfully i never had to use a magic box.... We just had 32:1ish cascades. Call me crazy, but a strange part of me enjoys getting rig tune numbers. Not when you're getting eaten alive by mosquitoes, ankles getting destroyed by that fucking fireant hill you didn't see, and inhaling gnats desperately trying to get your shit together before a regatta, but a nice cool windless day in the boat park working through the matrix? I sort of enjoy it.,

    More FP stuff - Olympic Offshore?

    the coverage World Sailing had at the last OCR event was actually pretty damn good. Biased towards people that actually race, but i think enough simple stuff to keep non sailors engaged.... but really, you gotta know your audience and most of them are at least going to be sailors, if not experienced racers themselves.

    29er Spinnaker Halyard Routing

    Are you having issues with the top section? Why do you want to lay up glass? It's the middle section hole that's elongating, not the top. The only issue for the top section is making sure the two mast track sections don't start prying each other off.

    505 vs. 470

    One of the 470's i raced required letting the tension off at the top mark so we could get the board up. They're definitely bendy boats when they get older. Keep in mind though that just because you're getting tension doesn't mean the boat isn't still bending more than a new one. The string between the chainplates can be depressing and enlightening at the same time.

    they seem to find every fucking hole on the race course from what i can see.

    Joke

    A Green Beret walks into a Marine bar carrying a large snapping turtle under his arm. All of the Marines go quiet. The Green Beret sets the snapping turtle on the bar, pulls out his dick and taunts the turtle with it until it latches on. He lifts the turtle off the bar with his dick, swings it around in a circle, spins it around, slams it back on to the bar and gouges it's eyes out with his fingers, killing it. He puts his dick back in his pants and turns to a stunned crowd of Marines. "I bet none of you pussies can do that." The crowd stays silent. A moment later, one of the Marines slowly raises his hand and says, "I.. I think I can sir, if you promise not to gouge my eyes out."

    Related- An Army soldier, a Marine, and a Navy sailor are in a bathroom. The Marine finishes at the urinal, and goes to the sink to wash up. He scrubs quickly and heads to the door, saying over his shoulder "The Marine Corps teaches us to be quick and efficient." The soldier finishes, zips up, and starts at the sink, taking the full two minutes to wash up. "The Army teaches us to be thorough." The sailor finishes, zips, and heads for the door. "In the Navy, we learn not to piss on our hands."

    Joke

    A reporter was interviewing members of the Army, Navy and Air Force in Afghanistan. He asked them what they would do if they woke up and found a camel spider in their tent. The soldier said "I would leap on it and kill it with my bayonet." The sailor said "I would crush it to death with one of my sea-boots." The pilot said "I would call reception and ask them why there was a tent in my room."

    An infantryman is in a foxhole while it's raining: "This sucks." A Ranger is in a foxhole while it's raining: "This sucks, but I like it." A Delta Force operator is in a foxhole while it's raining: "This sucks, but I wish it was worse." An aviator flying over the foxhole while it's raining: "I bet that sucks."
  15. cans are no bueno to chuck since they have a plastic lining to prevent corrosion, so i've read. Only food, piss, and shit should go in the water, if you're at the appropriate distance offshore.
