      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. Heard from a couple scources who talked to the owner, that it was New Haven and that it is back at Brownsville Marina.
  2. I went by the Bremerton Marina today and did not see New Haven. BUT, it could have moved for repairs if that is the boat. So I know nothing right now.
  3. Ussually when it is in the Westsound it is moored at Brownsville. But I suppose it is possible.
  4. Yep, this is the town I live in! I would like to find out which boat he tried to steal. I don't recognize the description.

  8. Perry Design Rendezvous 2017

    I wished I could have gone to the Rendezvous. I got a call Friday night at midnight from the rehab facility that they were sending my father to the ER. By the time they checked him out and sent him back, I got home at 0600. I did not feel like going anywhere Saturday. Then on Sunday 15 minutes before I was ready to leave for SW Washington to camp out for heading into Oregon for the eclipse, another call from rehab that they were sending him to the ER again. This time he was admitted, treated and back in rehab tonight. I am tired and hangry!

    The one talked about in this article is the pilothouse model. Rimas's was the original without the pilothouse. Also notice the bowsprit. Original Rawson 30s did not have a bowsprit and developed heavy weatherhelm.

    You have done a number of post IOR racing boats too. Pretty sucessfull ones!
  12. Solar Eclipse Plans

    The cheap paper glasses I bought are listed as a E15 filter. They seemed much darker than the welding goggles or old welding hoods that were left by my dad. So I ordered a small sheet of no.14 filter material for the goggles and to make a filter for the DSLR. I need to figure out what settings I need for the camera.

    There it is! The writings of a Young Fiji student have reverted to those of an angry sock puppet.
  14. Solar Eclipse Plans

    I am taking a road trip from the Seattle area to Madras in central Oregon. Madras is in the middle of the zone of totality. I have camping reservations in southern Washington for Sunday and Monday nights. My plan is to get underway early Monday morning and drive as far south untill I either reach Madras or the roads get gridlocked. I viewed a few partial eclipses from home in the past. I ordered a sheet of filter material to make some camera filters and to upgrade some brazing goggles.

    I am still being optimistic that the wind and current shifted and he was flushed back out to sea and is drifting West towards who knows where.
