      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. Stupid Airports

    I was packing a couple pounds of Vermont cheese in my carryon. The guy running the scanner says cheese has the same density as C4.
  2. Gougeon WEST Epoxy is the gold standard, but as far as I know, does not have a UV inhibitor option. I've used other formulations that claim to be UV inhibited and have been wanting to try out a new brand. Entropy Resin https://entropyresins.com/ Since I was running low on the other brand and needed to buy more I tried to order online, but could not get my order placed. Finally, I called them and the toll-free number was disconnected... uh-oh. As a last attempt, I dialed up the only remaining number on the web page and got a live person who said "Entropy Resin, a Gougeon Company" So I placed my order and drove to the Hayward factory to pick it up. ... Yep, now Gougeon will have a new resin offering that's UV inhibited and has some bio-content in it. Can't wait to try it tomorrow. If Gougeon bought them, it must be good.
  3. Sassy is not THAT old. Rod rigging was commonplace for at least a decade before she was launched.
  4. WCB's keel goes along with his boat, they just happen to be disconnected at the moment.
  5. Here we go again... can someone define what a sportboat is before claiming 'first' or in this case 'mother'? What, now a sportboat has to have a cabin? What about the Viper, or VXOne? Do us a favor newbie and read the forum before posting out of your ass.
  6. Only in California...

    No free bags at my home depot. And it's not about the $, it's trying to keep the plastic out of the ocean.
  7. Boats not the sailing kind

    If boats were still built of wood then we would still have plenty of boatbuilders. After a while the state of boat design has kind of plateaued, so why buy a new boat when there are plenty of decent used ones?
  8. Sailing blogs and vlogs worth following

    Webb Chiles adventures http://www.inthepresentsea.com/the_actual_site/webbchiles.html
  9. MILF seeks second date via radio call-in.

    If you believe what the guy said to be true then the mom is not innocent by any means. She raised her kid to be a bully, so now she knows what being bullied feels like. Karma is a bitch. Everything here was consensual. I don't see any sexual harassment, as long as the photos are not published publicly. Go ahead and play out whatever 'what-if' scenarios you want, like what if the guy was lying, what if the son wasn't a bully, but that's just hearsay.
  10. Home security camera anarchy

    I prefer PoE; no batteries and a wired connection. Wireless cameras can be disturbed more easily.
  11. "National Cleavage Day"

    septum piercings are passe`
  12. Farr 30 Adjustable Mast Butt

    In 1983 photos were not as cheap or common as now. Mast was pinned at the deck. The boat had stainless floor grid with chainplates directly connected. The mast butt roller track was bolted to the frames, as did the engine. All welded at night in a plumbing shop. The machining was done on the weekends by a master tool & die maker. All was 'free' ballast.
  13. Hull Flex on Trailer

    This ^^ . I can't imagine it would do that under it's own weight. Once overstressed it is permanently damaged.
  14. Cold molded boats, how have they held up?

    Horse is in Lake Erie
