      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.

    That works, its what I used to do with stitch and glue ply 12s in the 70s. I dropped the idea from the moths to save weight. I did not do it with Hollow Log as I had skinned the inside with carbon first and thought that would do the job. It was strong enough but the BHs showed on the outside after a while. Of the 9 cherubs i Built and The first 12 Tejin Sailcloth which had ply topsides we never encountered this problem although we were using 4.5mm plywood (although it was sold as 4mm) but I have seen s/tape boats with hardspots (mainly early Tornados) when i spoke to the LKate Chris Tims of Adhesive Technologies here in NZ about it he said that it was from forcing the bulkhead in rather than just putting it in loose and coving it in place with a bit of glue .Is this also your opionion Phil

    So Phill what would have happened if you put a 40mm wide doubler under the bulkhead with a 10mm bevell on each side to diminish the hard spot under the Bulkhead?
