      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. Radio controlled sailing

    Back to the winter referb on my S/B's. they're in the Vortex build timeframe (300 series) w the duel drive swing arm winch. Seems one of them has crapped out, so i'm looking to replace the winch. would love to find another Vortex but that's highly doubtful. i could live w a single drive if thats the best i can do. suggestions? (roughly 1300sq" sa, 72" loa, 24#'s dspl) thx,

    I wouldn't rule out the motor, I bet a creative mechanic could pickle it and get her running again w a few new parts...

  6. I've had two 1x19 head stays fail at the same spot. the culprit was a misaligned tang out of the ball joint. To my knowledge there are two t-ball tang swedge fittings, one at 0deg exit angle, one at 4deg. we had the wrong angle fitting causing the failure in both instances. tough part is, it is difficult to see the differences in the angle of the tang to the stay, especially when the rig is up. that's my guess on the failure here.

    I would think you would feel the burn before your lungs crapped out. Most likely your body would quickly go into shock knocking out most of the sense of feel. certainly would not want to find out!

    Nice catch Cruisin. is that a Bixby trem re branded or something else? Beautiful axe!
  10. BITCOIN,,, anyone playing that game?

    I agree w what your saying. there is a new breakthrough though. it is another form of distributed ledger called 'Hashgraph'. transaction speeds 000's of times faster, miniscule electrical demand and total fairness, all of which are current problems w traditional block chain architecture, limiting its scalability.

  12. A big project!

    Granted, just that a $6k bump to the budget shouldn't be surprise to the project. there are going to be many more unexpected expenses down the road.

    relative to the budget, it's concerning that he's cringing over the cost of the first piece of new wood. There's a lot more to buy...

    Thanks again John, etal. heard back from Rod and although he would be more than happy to build me a set, he doesn't sell bulk material. apparently I've also heard the Px-75 is discontinued by the mfg. do you have any sources for similar cloth. (something in the 1-1.5mill range) Thx,
