      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.

    i had a look at board lady - she does great work, i couldnt see polyethylene repair though OK sounds like g flex - many thanks,
  10. i have acquired an original one design which i use to sail many years ago. they are made form polyethylene which is hard to repair once cracked. apart form a 3 inch crack in the underside everything is complete- hardly been used what is best way to repair crack - plastic welding sounds good but doesn't seem to last - any suggestions ? i was actually thinking of putting epoxy or sikaflex in small air bubble then Sikaflex or glue a a thin sheet of aluminium ( or plastic) as patch - it would be proud but hopefully the plate would stop the plastic from cracking ?
