  1. Twitter's a turd that won't flush. What good is it other than for laughing at pranks like this? I would have linked it to a goatse img if I'd got there first.

    Garmin Quatix 3/5 vs... ?

    Thanks, I'll have a look at the tizen tools and see if I run out of attention span before I run out of understanding. Will do a new thread if I get that far.

    I just got the Samsung Galaxy Watch as a black Friday impulse buy add-on to my new phone. Didn't realize it wasn't WearOS until I got it. Can't find a countdown timer that looks like it would function ok as a start timer. Anyone able to point towards a Tizen timer that would work at least as well as an ironman? Are the developer tools easy enough for a non-coder idiot to be able to modify a watch template?

    You have to be careful with published personal info

    One more chance from Jackson ILCA 5?
  8. I suspect the Jordan ramps will be closed by high water from the rain.
  9. Can you see up from underneath? Maybe jam a phone camera up from below? I know nothing about Thistle but since that is the rear, I don't think there would be any normal sailing loads in that area. Maybe crew just fell hard against the trunk and overstressed it which may mean a superficial repair would be ok. Do you have fiberglass skills already? Grinding out all the damage and tapering the repair into undamaged solid structure is the right way. You just need to address any construction deficiencies that contributed to that failure if there were any. That's a pretty easy place to learn, no slick surface or nonskid to duplicate. Edit- Is there a trailer roller directly under that spot?
  10. Can you see the area inside the CB trunk where the crack is? Is that the rear of the trunk or the front? Just trying to figure out what force may have caused the crack. You can just bung some of the plumbers epoxy that looks like a big tootsie roll in those screw holes, not the "right" way to do it but doesn't add a mystery chemical/goo that may inhibit a proper fix later like tape or sealant might. Pending discovery of the cause of the crack, plumbers 'pox or JB Weld might be a temporary "fair weather only" "buy it at walmart" solution. I have an old Snipe jib you can have, foot is about the same but prob 3' shorter on the hoist. Might have to put a foot or so of line at the tack to get the jib up higher so the sheeting angle is correct. I'd be surprised if the CSC Thistle fleet didnt come up with a jib for you though. There is a CSC Thistle yahoogroup you can join to communicate with them. OD sailors can be very charitable if you convince them you will come out and race. (I'm not charitable at all, I need shit out my garage)
