      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.

  4. Tsunami alert Alaska

    Heard that there was a 15 cm rise in sea level for about a minute at Tofino. The plate shift was horizontal rather than vertical, making less wave action.. According to seismologists, who rate right up there with meteorologists for hindsight....

  6. I've had it with Rhode Island - Where to go?

    Godless? Self centred? Impolite? Web footed? Yes maybe. But Commies? Nope.
  7. How low can you go? Polyester

    ^ +1. Warm the resin and backing plate. Small heater will suffice. I used 1000 watt ceramic car heater. If you can set the heater under the work the column of rising air will keep it just about right for an overnight cure
  8. Adhesive removal

  9. Origin of VMG as terminology

    You may want to look in aviation navigation for the origins

    could we see a picture of Dawn Riley's butt, while sailing?
  15. I'm making a rudder

    One thing I found for getting a decent lamination on the trailing edge with fiber glass and carbon tapes was to fold them in half lengthwise and sew them along the fold with a zig zag stitch. The two sides sandwich the trailing edge and air bubbles in the laminate are greatly reduced..catch the epoxy as it cures and use a bondo knife to make sure every thing stays aligned. Some Hutchins speed file work feathers the edges and the next layers make a surface to fair. Repeat layers if necessary, hope this helps.
