      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. It's in the boat section... http://sandiego.craigslist.org/csd/boa/3953505783.html
  2. I appreciate the attempt to re-create Steve Jobs's yacht for only 600$ $300 · 17 foot cruzing boat http://www.usedvictoria.com/classified-ad/17-foot-cruzing-boat-_19823176
  3. 70' "soaking wet Catamaran"for only 40, 000$ Excellent photos make it even better! "• aluminum and glass ply • main salon huge and open area; cabins in the pontoons (difficult to photograph) • project with tremendous potential"
  4. Ugly, and interesting at the same time. http://www.yachtworld.com/core/listing/photo_gallery.jsp?slim=broker&&photo=7&boat_id=2249906&ybw=&boatname=19%27+Microship+&hosturl=swiftsure&photo_name=Cockpit&noOfPic=7 In a 19' boat things like: "The hydraulics for landing gear and rudder involve 13 cylinders, interconnected in variants of back-to-back (with multiple cylinder summing in the landing-gear steering and a kickup valve in rudder deployment). Without actively pressurized hydraulics, this is simple... as long as the volumes are balanced. This manifold, with a valve per circuit and a reservoir of fluid, allows the whole system to be quickly calibrated by simply opening associated valves, positioning drive and target cylinders as needed, and closing the valves."
  5. Columbia 30 converted to pilothouse trawler http://vancouver.en.craigslist.ca/van/boa/3565104446.html
  6. http://www.yachtworl...A/United-States Still can't figure out how to pull pictures from ads. I liked the way it looked from far off, but close up, started to look a bit off. Here's a more local one.
  7. There is no volume in the back half of the hull, how the hell did he expect it to float anywhere near level? It's got the underwater profile of a submersible vehicle. No idea, but apparently it wasn't that bad at it, unless you actually try to motor somewhere. I wonder if it was designed that way by Nils Lucander or if the owner/builder changed it. I wanted to see it in person while I was there, but didn't get the chance
  8. http://www.yachtworld.com/core/listing/photoGallery.jsp?ro=1&slim=quicknull&r=2465856&currency=USD&checked_boats=2465856&rs=yachtworld.com&boat_id=2465856&back=/core/boats/2007/Nils-Lucander-37'-Tri-keeled-Custom-Trawler-2465856/Anacortes/WA/United-States&boat_id=2465856 It starts off looking sorta OK, like a workboat of sorts from the front. Nicely finished interior, nice components, especially for the price the owner is willing to accept. The side view and stern are getting uglier and stranger, and then you see what's under the water. Triple keels, odd ducted props, strange rudders. Twin Deutz 35hp oil cooled diesels. apparently it squats so much under power that the swim grid is completly underwater, the flat section at the top of the rudder was added to try and direct the thrust somehow and stop the squatting, they didn't work.
