      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. Balmar has a kit for that engine. I have a serpentine kit with the AT alternator. Works great, easy to install...
  2. Sam , yes you are correct it was Turicum. I remember talking to one of the crew at LYC that year. Tweaker, a friend on a boat still in Vic sent me a note yesterday, he had confirmation Mountain had indeed missed the only mark of the course. What a bummer...
  3. I really don't see that WHL, They did all that in 4-6 kts? The track south east of Duntze is pretty consistant, heading SSW tracker had the boat speed at 2.5 knots when they were east of Duntze
  4. Look again... That does not look like a gap in the tracker, now only they know if they sailed the course.... The gap might explain the track on the E37
  5. Looking at the tracker, the J/109 is south of Duntze rock. I thought that was a mark of the course, to be taken to port... I seem to remember a number of years ago there was a yacht ( Tranquillite'? ) that went between Duntze and Tatoosh Is. After a few days the navigator came on deck and told the crew there was a problem, he had made a mistake. not how you want your Maui race to go....
  6. We have installed several eTrak AIS units with B&G and other systems. The eTrak does not output a GPS position, perhaps your ais does the same...
  7. No need to worry about logs. a wise PNW sailor told me they sink at night...
  8. FYI the Edson tiller arms are heavy bronze. I showed up to install a pilot and the owner had purchased all the gear, including the Edson arm. When he unpacked the tiller arm he me asked why it was so heavy? I showed him an aluminum tiller arm from PYI, his response, 'what in the world is Edson thinking?' I think he sent it back and to Edson and told them to sharpen their pencils. Quattro
  9. I have one I can send you. I will grab it this morning, so if you want to PM me it will be on its way... Lance
  10. Is this the pin bolted to the quadrant? AP drive and Rudder reference ends slide over it and secured with clips? Like it was when it was Sunday Ticket?
  11. Wow, I didn't make it very far through the video. I would say halyards look to tight, main outhaul looks tight. Mainsail trim was off the pace, boom wants to be on center or a little above in those conditions. I saw a lot of traveler at the mid point or below going to weather Quattro
  12. I would say you are over thinking this... Not a stupid idea, but if your goal is to do a good job now so ' if ' you need to redo the work in the future. A simple service loop of wire will do You will spend less time just making the proper connections again over accessing the disconnections Quattro
  13. I rebuilt our boat a few years ago, we have Antal tracks and Lopez blocks. No problems at all Quattro
  14. The copper coil on the exhaust is a condensation drain, it is not meant to drain the exhaust after being flooded. I will second the expertise at Sure Marine in Ballard, they know what works and what will cause you trouble in the future. They take the installation process very seriously... I know one local installer who is blacklisted, they won't sell him parts any more. He cut to many corners... I have had to redo a couple of systems thanks to him Quattro
