      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. S2 7.9

    Maybe just the inboard boats have the pushpit? Looks like there is an engine panel on that image. RE number of fixed keel boats.... There was a mix of equip. I think 8 OB MH with only 2 pipe berths below. Not sure about the remaining 9, if some had regular interior from the DB boat (which may have retained the trunk as a head divider)

    My gut says keep the fan running even if it is below freezing. Sublimation or something. Maybe there is a sciency type around to shoot that idea down.

    I owned one from 1986, #455 masthead rig, fixed keel, outboard. IIRC, there were 8 built.

    Here's my thread from F5 forum where I worked through some of the same things. http://force5.us/main/index.php?option=com_agora&task=topic&id=455&Itemid=105

    Dirty little K-cup secret; if it is sweetened or has "milk" in it the cup just has instant granules of stuff in it. You are paying 70 cents a cup for a spoon full of instant latte mix. The biggest piss take by kcuppers is the lemonade and hot chocolate.

    The F5 has a lot of sail area for a beginner, get the small sail from Intensity for $100 while you learn to sail. http://www.intensitysails.com/insafo5jusa.html If someone capsized with the cunningham loose, the rig may have not been fully down in the tube when they righted the boat, that could also make that crack. I bet it was frozen, but just be sure the Cunningham is always tensioned at least a little. You want the front trailer support directly under the mast tube, there is no strength anywhere else up front. Use a broom handle to tap inside the mast tube while you feel underneath the hull to locate the spot. Then position your new cross bunk there. Put a sharpie mark there so you get the right spot each time you load the boat. How good are your FG skilz? I would wrap a lot of glass around that mast tube so you essentially have a new tube surrounding the old cracked tube. As you said, extra glass between tube and deck and tube and hull too. Quick and dirty and heavy. Take the eyes near the mast off the deck before so you dont glass over the hardware (and also add some strength there too) Not the right way to fix the tube crack but the right way would take some skill.
  12. Huh? New Sunfish Class?

    Not digging back to find it but, the promises of ongoing $$$$ from LP and The MCBuggy company to support racing/class set off my BS detector. Put the $$$$ in escrow or gtfo.

    Keurig does get licencing fees from k-cup producers. I would guess Keurig makes more off the cups than the machines. I would also guess none of those keurig-smashers thought anything about that at all.
  14. Roy Moore 3rd rail?

    Where'd the thread go?
