    HOT! HOT! HOT! (Peppers, that is)

    Wow. Thanks for the heads-up, desprit. Gonna operate on this bad boy with nitrile gloves, a scalpel and hemo clamp in a fume hood. Just want the seeds, but I'm tempted to put a slice on a burger or pizza slice.

    It was, John, but it would have been more fun with Hustler there.

    NASS Race to Oxford MD 9/7/19

    Those starting lines...gosh. I mean, golly gosh. Oh well. We had a great race against the Express 30, swapping places back and forth. Once again (like on Hornet last year with AYC debacle) we had certain victory snatched away. It's getting to be a fad. Such is life.

    Goddammit...can't believe I'm missing this again. Have fun, Capt DW and don't forget about that halyard tension thing.

    Modified Columbia 30 info?

    To ensure the fit, I cut a pattern out of delrin and made damn sure the thing slid up and down smoothly. After all that, though, I'm building a new bulbless keel with internal ballast. Easy enough to configure on a 5.5 meter sporty, probably not recommended for a 30 :-)

    I feel your personal pain. Although mine, weighing a fraction of yours, was a lot less hassle. Still a PITA though. And yeah, the fit going back in is a concern....don't ask me how I know :-)

    My sincere apologies for the thread hijack. Best of luck trying to game optimize the boat for the system. Long live IOR, MORC, IMS, etc etc

    Hah! Thanks, Steam. Lookin' forward to it but I have a tendency to get sucked back into work...I stink at retiring it seems :-)

    Hell, I'm going to be an ORG in 2 weeks, (Old Retired Geezer) so should be an email if you need work in the boatyard. I have CF and epoxy and will travel, :-)

    Wanda down

    Holy crap clusters, Christian! Sorry to hear this, man. Good of Wanda to take the hit so that no one else got fried, though. That was a cool boat I thought you had sold it though. Wasn't it on the market a few years back? RIP Wanda!

    Thanks for the reports, RK

    any reports from the Lower Keys? The Neph has a house on Summerland. They aren't there, but wondering if the house still is. Looked like ground zero for the eye wall blast.

    Thanks tallyho, good to know. Just cancelled my order for that shed.

    Irma

    What happened to the lady's shed, the woman who was "overlooking Magens Bay"...did that shed survive? I saw the doors leave the structure and the thing distorting pretty wickedly. Then I had to step away from the computer. If that shed survived, I want one. That was one helluva a shed. Just curious.

    MSNBC is already reporting: it's his fault. (just a joke KIS)

    Saw that on his FB page, Timber! Builds look impressive. I'll tell you, Geoff is one tough hombre. If you know anything about the guy at all, you have to respect.

    Couchalito, how you gettin' around these days, mang? You more mobile? Are you newly kneed? Hope the "prospect" is an east coaster and reacted well to your "buffing."
  24. On ignore now. Thanks, have a wonderful life.

    I think I'm going to go with Cruisin's suggestion of using gold leaf. It's cheap, it's light weight and it's flashy. I have heard that "chicks dig it." So yeah. Good call, CL.
