  1. This popped up on my screen. The anniversary was actually last November so maybe someone noted it before. I'd seen video several years ago but its worth a repeat.. "The blast blasted blubber beyond all believable bounds".

    New Corsair 880

    Its interesting to hear other attendee's take away from the presentation. They picked up things I missed but the info and discussion was happening fast. I've done a write up of Francois' presentation from the notes I took. I haven't and likely won't cross check them with the recording of the meeting. Thats too much work/time for me, it was a ~2.5 hour talk and Q&A. I certainly could be wrong but my notes said the floats had 300% floatation of the weight of the boat. I know squat so I don't know if thats ridiculous or not. This is in contrast to what gspot wrote in post 122; that the floats are "300% of the F28 floats". He may be a better listener than me. Either way they are much more buoyant. I came away with the impression that Ian designed rocker (at the stern??) to keep the bow up, whereas Francois' 880 has a flatter run aft for planing and the larger, fuller floats will keep its bow up. We recorded the presentation and after Francois reviews it we will post it on the NWMA website, You'll find it by scrolling down through the notice for the January meeting. The minutes/write up and video link will be found at the end of the notice.

    'Triple Jack' rebuild...FU Irma!

    People say that large waves don't come across that way from a photo but is that a monster on your stbd quarter behind the closer wave or something else?
  4. To clarify: This is 930 am Seattle time. Don't be expecting anything at 630 Saturday morning you East Coasters.

Zoom works on just about any device but it will work best on a laptop or desktop because the screen size allows you to see more participants. You don't need a camera but it's nice to have so other members can see you. You will need a microphone, but almost every laptop has a microphone built-in. Headsets also work well. From the Download Center - Zoom install the ‘Zoom Client for Meetings’ for your computer. There are also ‘Zoom Mobile Apps’. One Minute Video instructions: https://youtu.be/-s76QHshQnY Zoom also has a "test meeting" running continuously so you can see if it's working: http://zoom.us/test

    Dylan's New Boat Anarchy

    Now you tell me! I hadn't heard about mice and pex during my research. I ran it all thru my house replacing the 75 year old galvanized pipe. We've never had rodent issues but we had a cat til the kids grew up. It died some 8 years ago. Still haven't seen any mice but rats have started making visits to our outside potting shed, even though our pest service has those black boxes nearby. GRRR. I never realized what great service our cat provided til she was gone. Oh yeah, I do like Dylan's Fisher

    When I see the title of this thread I can't help but visualize packs of 60 and 70 year olds rummaging thru dumpsters. Carry on

    Rigid Inflatable Lifespan?

    Here you go then. $300 obo is pretty nominal for a cruiser. Post is 6 days old so may be a little price flexibility this time of year: OLD AVON IFLATABLE BOAT IN GOOD CONDITION, HOLD AIR. RATE FOR 4 PERSON AND 15HP. I HAVE BEEN CRABBING AND FISHING IN MUKILTEO. ASKING $300/OBO.

    That will be handy. We rented a car there for a month of camping. I don't recall much problem with narrow roads or traffic, but it was just a car.

    Nice, whats the LOA of the RV? Short is handy if you don't mind small boat style RVing. We have a 20 footer that is perfect.
