      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. Mocking Ads on Craigslist

    https://bellingham.craigslist.org/boa/d/classic-wood-yacht-damali/6383584631.html Not a sailboat, but woah... what a project. Falls way way past the line of "free is too much"
  2. Same hose for manual and electric bilge pump?

    The manual pump outlet is often higher than the auto outlet. The auto has to work harder to pump up to a elevation, so is that a concern?
  3. Mad Mike, Rocket Man

    And here I thought this was about our favorite scientist Mike W. from the title. Interesting story. Will he have a chance to run for Governor of CA?
  4. Classic............

    She looked a little drunk or on something to me. Panicked on being called out and then went on attack rather than admit she knew she was wrong. Clearly compounding the problem. Love the "just off the 5 month cruise" comment, bravo! *I didn't watch till the end though, so I may be way off base.
  5. A big project!

    Harbor Freight loves you! Keep at it! Great videos. Well done.
  6. Voltage regulator blues

    That dump truck is awesome! Love to see it going again. Any progress?
  7. ok, tried putting the punch tool in a vice (as suggested) and no change. The stud crumples to one side. Like a giant stomped on a trash can with his foot. I'm going to try ordering a different brand of snaps.
  8. With the punch tool in the vice? Interesting idea... I may try this.
  9. That looks pretty thin... works well you say? Good to know. Price is pretty good.
  10. Daylight Savings v. Standard Time

    I agree 100% Lets get rid of this silly tradition. And while we are at it, can we get on over to the metric system? Why not do both at once? RHD or LHD vehicles... just pick one! I really don't care what side. What else can we fix while we are at it?
  11. I've struggled with the replacement of snaps in a canvas cover. The snaps I have are perhaps cheap? Just crappy? My mad skills need work? Each snap is affixed by putting the smooth part in a mortar/pestle arrangement and hammering the plug to lock the snap. Each and every time the "post" deforms and creates a very weak hold. Q. Is the fancy tool to crimp the snaps worth it? Are my snaps garbage? Does the hammer technique ever work?
  12. scotw

    They do not show the butt cleat.
  13. Ramming Speed! Tall Ship Docking Adventures

    Why are people who film these things with their phones so silly. Honestly it is not that hard. Get a grip on yourself camera person. Either put down your phone and help, or at least spare the world your commentary and panic. Drama major perhaps?
  14. F1 2017

    So it's Vettel... Thought Button would make it to the end.
