    Is tempesta cooll?

    He thought it was a "puff piece" by Isler. Had nothing to do with Nelson, that came later. However Bailey took great offense to his comments and we got to read a great round of emails between Scooter and Leif.

    This one https://www.sailingworld.com/sailboats/bravura-29 I remember being bored to tears on the US Sailing forum and getting corrected for every f bomb or whatever we uttered. And someone posted "Check out this flame war on a new sailing website!""

    Cool fairing tool

    I was working with Dreyfus late one weekend loading up the smelter with lead for a keel pour. We got the pot fired up around 8pm and went for a bite to eat while the melt got going and started the pour around 10 or so. In the meantime dew had collected in the bottom of the mold so it all exploded and the rain of lead around us was incredible. Tommy had one large blob of lead land and congeal around his Rolex, cooling from 700 some odd to 650 degrees. It was a pretty bad burn. You know he and his partner Larry both died of brain cancer.

    COASTAL QUEEN - Ultimate Racing Program Tender

    8 passengers would require a USCG inspection and certificate. It would probably take a small fortune to pass Coast Guard. keep it at six passengers and OUPV

    Antifouling paint and illegal dumping - info request

    Read the last paragraph, it's essentially the same stuff. Now these guys are leading edge in the technology with confidential licenses to other manufacturers. http://www.cmp.co.jp/library/global/pdf/brochure/cmp_bio_plus.pdf#zoom=80
