      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.

    sounds like if you go to that high school it's pretty easy....

  3. US Watercraft receivership ? (Alerion etc)

  4. Diva 39- Any Experience?

    A friend just bought one in Bermuda and delivered it back to Newport about a month ago. The keel almost fell off and he was very worried about the rig the whole way. He got it back and had the stringers re-glassed, he's raced twice and crushed both races.
  5. Fuel pump or apertures

    So I Bypassed the Racor, engine started and I motored away. Can't think of why the Racor would be an issue other than it's prretty big and apertures may be too small in the nipples. Maybe the pump can't draw the diesel out? Thoughts?
  6. Fuel pump or apertures

    Thinking about this a little more, I need to understand the Racor a little better. I had the same engine on my old boat and the Racor on that probably held a third of the volume of diesel in the clear seperating capsule. Could sheer volume of diesel prevent it from being taken up by the fuel pump?
  7. Fuel pump or apertures

    The Racor could be the problem, it's from a much larger boat, maybe can't generate the flow necessary to get the fuel thru.

    it just never gets old http://nypost.com/2017/06/21/married-teacher-arrested-for-having-sex-with-teen-student/
  9. Fuel pump or apertures

    That sounds like a good test.
  10. Fuel pump or apertures

    The mechanic went through the whole fuel line and pressurized it to look for leaks, no issues there. Apparently, fuel just isn't getting through which is why I was wondering if the Raycor is actually blocking the fuel feed because the apertures are slightly smaller. Doesn't seem like it should make a big difference but I'm completely lame at mechanical operation.
  11. Fuel pump or apertures

    I bought an S27.9 last year with an inboard Yanmar 1GM diesel. I had problems last year getting it started, finally got it going but a couple friends who looked at it said I should get a Raycor filter since the fuel line went straight from the tank to the fuel pump. Over the winter I got a slightly used Raycor and the hoses, as well as the nipples for the Raycor (it came off a friends lobster boat so the hoses were bigger and the nipples too big for the hoses I had on my boat). The Nipples I got have a slightly smaller aperture opening (basically, it looks to be 1 or 2 mil smaller in diameter) than the attaching nipples on the tank and engine. My problem now is the engine won't prime, and when we manually prime it the fuel runs out and engine dies. I had a mechanic look at it and he says I should get a new fuel pump, which I can believe because the engine is 35 years old. However, I was wondering if having smaller intake and outflow on the Raycor could be the problem since it ran last year without the Raycor. Any thoughts?

    Actually, really bad upbringing, serious father issues.

    Well, a quick perusal of the entry list shows that bow 08 belongs to Mark Foster, so I'd have to say, in evoking the famous Australia II sinking: "Nothing goes down like a Foster's"
