      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. Does anyone know what diameter carbon rod people are using for stays?
  2. Wouldn't you rather take weight out of the rig than anywhere else? I agree with you on that, but I can lose more weight in other areas such as paint and a boom. I can probably lose 6 or more lbs between the two. I am in a time crunch to finish these tasks before A cat mids, so I will put the tasks that lose the most weight first.
  3. 2 lbs is about right after doing the math, so I will save this project until I finish sanding the entire boat and assembling a new boom because I can only lose lbs. Thanks, the entire boat was made from scratch, we used OH's hull, daggerboard and rudder molds and we made our own beam molds. The only things we didn't make were the mast, sail, and hardware.
  4. The boat was completed in December, it is a home built with curved boards and volume similar to the DNA. We just added to much weight in fairing and paint, and a boom. I am switching the boom to a windsurfing mast section and will sand some paint off and wet sand to get a good finish. Then I could also lose a couple of pounds on rigging.
  5. I'm looking to lose a couple of pounds to get the boat close to minimum weight. I have seen people using sk90 in 3mm, but I have also heard that d12 max sk78 would be better because it is pre-stretched so much. The only problem is the d12 max is so hard to find in the u.s. Any thoughts?
