      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. I have been there and talked to the current owners, it is my movies and I would be interested but current price is too high. She is, as far as I know from Facebook in a better mooring then the last few winters but she is in desperate need of a new owner with a lot of passion and whom would be willing to spend time and money
  2. Finally for today, two photos from last weekend, nice conditions and good company.
  3. Here is a small update from last night, I have had some bad experience with my Lopolight and I saw a very nice yacht in Newport RI last year so I descided to make one last attempt to get them to work and make new pullpits and pushpits as well as stanchions and feet for them in my favorite material... The stanchions are not ready but in the making.
  4. As mentioned by Jaramaz this is not about doing it simple, I am driven by the restoration part of it, the history and bringing things back to original or better condition. To save and show that old things can shine.
  5. It is kind of fun to read old comments and see all the detailed work we have and still do on Flirt. Thanks for the appreciation.
  6. Thanks, it was fun to upload some photos of current status, I have a few new things I will show in a few weeks... //FOP
  7. Fifth update, She was outside this winter due to lack of space in my normal shed, we made a tent with NOA supports in aluminium and a custom made cover. It worked out well but my spot is very open and not so nice when a strong W or SW blow in Gothenburg so I had to adjust and work on it the entire winter. The four last photos show the limited work we did wax, anti-fouling, polishing the prop and rigging.
  8. Fourth one if you can stand it; summer and sailing
  9. Third one; first three show Flirt from inside in full cruising mode. Installed a classic Alpine 7909L together with good speakers and two small amplifiers. This year I sent all my doors, hatches and drawer fronts on a serious weight saving program, before 21 kg and after approx 11 kg so from a percentage weight saving point of view it was a great success but in the big picture.... maybe not so important but it was fun to do it. The two last pictures show after sail from fall 2016.
  10. Second for today; First show one of the counter tops during vacuum bagging, second and fifth show the mast collar in the boat and third and fourth shelf´s for the wardrobe´s. The two last are dividers for the cutlery.
  11. Here´s another one, I made only temporary counter tops for the first year and here is a few pictures of the result, I was not happy with the structure on the carbonfiber so I decided to paint them instead of a nice clear coat.
  12. I take a few more of these fittings, they look pretty good and I am proud of the work we did ;-) First pic show my fitting, second photo show a standard fitting we used to just be able to install and make textile fit the arches. Third and fourth show prep work and before starting to weld fittings and tube. The last three are the hinges for the cockpit tent or Bimini if you prefer to call it that.
  13. Here comes fourth upload for today. For splash 2015 I ordered a new dodger and cockpit dodger to give some protection as well as increase living space when weather is bad. I made all fittings and arches myself and here is a few pics from that work.
  14. Third update for today. Just doing some sales work here...
  15. Here is another update on things we have done and parts I make for our yacht. First year we sailed with the cut down main and a Harken battcar system but problem was that the track had to stop above the old mainsail feeder and consequence was that headboard car came 10" higher then needed and without anything to step on on deck I needed to make a aluminium wedge in two pieces to allow the battcar track to pass over as well as that I had to re-machine the sail feed part. With the new mainsail we bought from Lundh Sails I wanted to make my own head board car in Titanium. I think they still have a few if anyone is interested to buy one. The two last pictures show the new and old spinn-boom car traveling inside a hidden track on our Stearn mast.
