      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.

    Damnit.. I return after a summer-long hiatus, and it seems that it was a real shit-fest in here Oh well, at least I'm pseudo back as time allows . Bob - other than your blog, where else can I see updates on Sliver? I've been looking forward to seeing this thing finished since this thread started..

    It was just mentioned a couple of posts ago, but I'm absolutely flabbergasted at the attention to detail, craftsmanship, and how good the Sliver looks already just in it's current state. Phenomenal design, phenomenal build crew, and great owner vision. And knowing ND and Bob, we'll probably get to get treated to this again on Catari.. Best sailing forum evaaar!
  3. hey there..I would like to come up on Saturday to get some measurements, if that works for you. Also what club is it at and do you know for sure what weekend your club has their launch.

    thaks

    I've been wanting to build a smallish powerboat to trailer up north to the lakes up there, or to get out on the water on windless days.. Looks like I found my project for winter 2012! I don't know why I love it so much, but I do.. Thanks for turning me on to these things! I'm already seeing a retractable hardtop in its future.. http://www.alaska.ne...y/Sneakeasy.htm if you dont have it already... Very cool!! Yeah, was browsing that page not even 5 mins ago I'm already thinking more rake in the a-pillar of the windshield, that should sleek her up tremendously.. I'm really digging this little thing. Laid up decks as opposed to just plywood, lots of varnish..

    The outpouring of support around here is phenomenal.. Chalk me up as another mostly lurker that feels like he knows some of you. There's nothing I can say that hasn't already been more eloquently stated already, so I'm keeping it simple and wishing all the best to MSG, her family, and her friends.

    And inside the boat above the keel pan Tim Nolan has engineered a stainless steel grid to distribute the keel, chain-plate and mast step loads and connect to the fore and aft stiffeners (which are the berth/bench/cabinet box sections that tie into the bulkheads.) Jim Franken has drawn all of this up in Rhino and it is really pretty cool to view it and rotate it so the details are visible. His drawings go to Brandon Davis for CNC machining of many of the individual parts. (We are spending more money than originally budgeted but speeding up the process greatly.) Much of the interior of this vessel is structural. I want almost nothing inside the boat that is not structural. "Simple & light is right" on this day sailor. So I plan to use canvas (Sunbrella) for many of the items normally made of wood, such as the door to the head, cabinet fronts, anything I can do to reduce weight. Suggestions for weight savings are always welcome. Send them in. (Already have some great suggestions from Beau V) Make your dink out of Styrofoam..
