      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. New Headliner

    Looking to replace the vinyl headliner on my Cal 33-2. It has delaminated from the hardboard liner and is sagging down in multiple places. I have re glued with spray adhesive but it is not holding up. Am considering a white coated hardboard from the home center. Cut it to fit and secure with teak battens. Has anyone tried this or are there better ways to go with this? Would also like to replace the padded vinyl liner on the cabin house with the same material. It's unfinished fiberglass under all the vinyl.
  2. Was wondering if I need to remove last seasons wax before I compound ? If yes, then what is the best way to do it?
  3. 1970's Pearson 36

    Hey that would be great. Not sure how that works on this forum. Please let me know. Thanks.
  4. 1970's Pearson 36

    Would anyone care to comment on the Shaw designed Pearson 36 from the early 70's? I am interested in crusing the NE and possible PHRF racing. They seem to be offered at a wide range of pricing and varied condition. Any help appreciated. Thanks.
  5. J35 Anarchist

    I've been looking for a J35 or 36 to do what you have done with your boat. Coastal cruising with a great sailing boat. Would you mind telling me how this boat works out for short handed sailing? Are there any suggestions or tips you can pass on. Have a few boats in my area, a J35 and a J36. Any comments on either for what I want to do. Prices are close. Any advise appreciated.
