      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. What 40-50ft sailboat has a workshop just aft of the galley?

    outbound 46
  2. Source for teak?

    Edensaw is the best, but there is also Crosscut Hardwoods in Seattle.
  3. Perry Sliver Class Day Sailor

    Nice Wabbit.
  4. Origami Boat Thread

    See http://www.biekerboats.com/Bieker_Boats/Riptide_55_Particulars.html Construction Details Built by Shaw Boats in Aberdeen, WA. The goal of the construction was to maximize performance for a given cost and maximize the use of laminated flat stock. Hull below the chine was built of strip planked Duracore with eglass/epoxy skins. The sides were built from carbon/eglass/epoxy skins on balsa core layed up on a flat table and cut to computer patterns. These sides were sprung into the female building jig. The deck and cockpit surfaces were similarly built from carbon skin /honeycomb core flat panels sprung into place like a “stitch and glue” dinghy. All interior parts were built from lightweight composite panels cut out to accurate computer patterns for minimum weight and minimum waste.
  5. Floating Jib Leads?????????????

    Thanks Spoonie. Yeah, I figure there is a potential for needing more than 3 or 4:1.
  6. Floating Jib Leads?????????????

    I'm setting up floating leads for the genoa on my moderate displacement 30 footer. Lots of good photos of the lead setup in this thread, but how is everyone cleating the control line? Harken's load calculator says the sheet load should be about 700 pounds, but what's the deflection load? I am thinking about a 3:1 or 4:1 led aft to the cockpit where I have an existing unused cam cleat that seems like it would be a good fit.
  7. 2hp outboards

    Thanks all for the good input...
  8. 2hp outboards

    Considering the purchase of a 2hp outboard. It seems like Honda is the standard, but considering the options. Some parts on the Honda seem cheap, but maybe that's the way it goes. Suzuki looks interesting and at a $200 lower price point. Yamaha is quite a bit heavier. Have not had good luck with Mercury. Some other options out there?
  9. The Zombie Fleet

    Anyone know the story on this zombie J/35 on p dock, shilshole? Fitted with twin furlers! Looks like it has been sitting for a long time...
  10. 1984 CATALINA 38 KEELECTOMY

    Why did you need advice then?
  11. Gary W Mull

    I know this is digging way back into this thread, but I think one of the Commencement Bay 22s is still down at Tacoma Yacht Club, named The Grin. Cool little boat.

  13. Perry Sliver Class Day Sailor

    Looks like G-10 for the backing plates... http://www.mcmaster.com/#grade-g-10-phenolic/=qrieu9 Lots of batteries? What's the capacity?
  14. Perry Sliver Class Day Sailor

    The boat is a daysailer with a non overlapping headsail on a furler and i imagine a low friction mainsail track with halyard to the cockpit. I don't imagine Kim will be needing to go forward too often in poor conditions. Adding ballast - i doubt it.
  15. Cal 48 A lesser known Lapworth design

    The 48 and 43 seem a lot more similar to each other than the 40...
