      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. Melges 24 bowsprit

    Standard operating procedure is to tape old boot to end of pole with black electric/ rigging tape so when fully retracted it overlaps the boot/ gasket attached to bow. If not in planing conditions boat fills with water. We use teflon paste on pole. Much better than vasolene. Comes in a small can in plumbing section at Lowes. Very, very slick on pole. We would redo every year. Hold up great. Also used on new keel delron spacers vs sanding them down to fit. Leads to very tight keel with no movement in big waves.

    There should be two holes in top of crane, both are tapped for #8 or #10 stainless steal screws. If stripped fill with epoxy , drill and retap. Backstay is attached by pin to back undersurface back of cane, goes thru loop or tiny block at end of fiberglass batten
