      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. Frederiksen hardware availability

    10/4 thanks.
  2. Frederiksen hardware availability

    Sailing on a clubmember's 38' X-Yacht. One of the cleats on the Frederiksen traveler car has lost it's ball bearings along with being just plain screwed up. Can't seem to find Frederiksen hardware or parts doing a Google search. Are they still in business? Any dealers still have parts? Or does he have to bite the bullet? Thanks.
  3. Cleaning bottoms in Annapolis

    I motor out of my marina drop the anchor and scrub my own bottom. My marina doesn't allow divers either.
  4. Signet+NKE=?

    I would give Signet a call. Since many people use the Signet speed transducer with many different systems they will probably have the answer.
  5. New Dive Mask- User reviews

    I don't know how you would blow water out that enters thru the snorkel. With a traditional snorkel it's easy.
  6. Desperately Seeking B&G Paddlewheel Sensor/Transducer

    Call Signet. I think they have a paddlewheel transducer that B&G folks use. Signet paddlewheel are considered the most accurate.
  7. Cleaner Wax for bogus boat cleanup

    Do you hang over the side or tread water?

  9. Cleaner Wax for bogus boat cleanup

    Hey Bub, your the one who seemed ticked off that they launched your yacht before you were ready. Go back and read your original post. You said it was "absurd". If my yard wanted to move me early in the season just to gain access to another boat I would tell them to have fun moving it twice.
  10. Cleaner Wax for bogus boat cleanup

    What kind of a yard launches your boat before your ready?
  11. B&G Triton vs Triton2

    Thanks. Appreciate the tips.
  12. B&G Triton vs Triton2

    Thanks for the help and info guys. My buddy is going to pull the trigger.
  13. B&G Triton vs Triton2

    So if you purchasing a complete system is everything you need to do that backbone in the box?
  14. B&G Triton vs Triton2

    One of the things I don't get is B&G states that the depth/speed transducer comes with a 7' cable. How do they expect 7' to get anywhere on the average size boat?
  15. Merit 22 outhaul and setup

    BTW no boom vang is not good. The boom will fly up in the air off the wind and you will have less power off the wind. Rig up a 4-1 system. Through bolt a stainless boom bail on both the mast base and about 3' back on the boom. Make it a 45 deg angle. 3' is just a guess.
