      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. Spraying the inside

    No good deed goes unpunished.
  2. Spraying the inside

    I'm not paying that lazy motherfucker anything. Ps I've hung with him for about 25years now, we help each other with lots of stuff, but not this apparently. I think it's time to go back to the original plan, I know the products and trust the supplier. It's not worth the gamble on such a big and arkward surface.
  3. Spraying the inside

    Back to the 2k finish. My painter mate told me essentially the same thing, use the stuff that you know works, he still declined my offer for him to show me how it's done.
  4. Companionway Hatch

    6mm foam core with a medium weight triax on both sides. Have the unis run side to side. Glass is fine if it's not a gp boat. Brush over with a thin filler mix then sand.

    Which 1050 and which keel?
  6. Going up the Mast

    in fairness most boats here sit in heavy steel cradles, surely better than jack stands.
  7. Going up the Mast

    Sweet. Safe as houses then.
  8. Spraying the inside

    Just searching for the petit ez cabin paint but can't get it here. I was looking and it looks similar to Zinsser perma-white, self priming, waterbased single pot anti fungal paint. It would be easy to go through, squirt on a couple of coats and be done. Easy to touch up, recoat etc. anyone?
  9. Club/offshore racers in Aus up to $80k AUD

    Yeah I seent it there and wondered how the reception was. The nexus system is very simple but it has had the server fitted so easy to add a compass and mast displays etc. really nice boat, perfect gulf cruiser racer.
  10. Going up the Mast

    Does anyone here actually know of a boat falling over on the hard with someone up the mast?
  11. Spraying the inside

    Thanx I'll see if we can get that or a similar product here.
  12. Club/offshore racers in Aus up to $80k AUD

    Yeah I had wondered that. The wireless systems are easier to fit but not perfect. Did you sail on the boat with Hamish?
  13. Club/offshore racers in Aus up to $80k AUD

    Yep she's a pretty nice boat. Bigger carbon stick, carbon boom, rudder, sprit. Heaps of sails, comfortable below, nice keel etc. Kaimai Flyer looks pretty janky in comparison.
  14. Spraying the inside

    Thanks Bruno.
