      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. High winds expected Thursday night through Friday: http://www.marinij.com/marinnews/ci_24570122/advisory-strong-winds-expected-roar-through-marin
  2. Weather update. It's been storming the last hour or so here in northwest San Francisco. Lots of wind, some strong gusts, along with moderate to heavy rain. Estimating wind speed is not my expertise. Sorry about that. AC races were held just a few blocks north of where I am now. The storm is taking a northerly track and has likely hit Richardson Bay by now. Try this local tv station live storm tracker radar link: http://www.ktvu.com/s/weather/interactive-radar/

  5. Does anyone know why the FH is now 1,800 s.f instead of the previously touted 3,200 s.f.? It looks the same size it has always been. Either way, at $80K it is only somewhere between, roughly, $44/s.f. and $25/s.f. If it were on land, I'd avoid it because the price is too low - just buying another's problems. I do recall seeing the FH with a small sail up while it drifted into the rocks the first time. It was visible from my house. The article seems poorly researched for the author did not update anything such as the number of posts here. Lastly, the court date. See what happens when one bites off more than he can chew?
  6. Yes, there is a minor storm. It was worse yesterday. Good news - here is a link to an article in today's Marin IJ re: the FH. Everyone here knows it is for sale, but here is the local slant: http://www.marinij.com/marinnews/ci_24558443/end-dream-homemade-flyin-hawaiian-catamaran-sale-ebay
  7. We see IMHO frequently on this post. Clearly it should be IMO for humility is unknown or forgotten in this SA thread. OK by me - best a straight up opinion. Anyway, see below for a current pic of the site where the FH was built. Notice the large pile of dirt covered by the tarp. Perhaps it is the final resting place for Lil Murray.
  8. Waivers in California are just one more thing to argue about at great expense of time, emotion, and money. Essentially worthless.
  9. Anyone who assists with towing the FH at this stage better be judgment proof (less than minimal assets) or have excellent insurance. The task justs invites unnecessary liability exposure. Odds are that whoever assists will be blamed for any unfortunate events during and after the tow. Or for littering. Best, in my opinion, to leave HR to fend for himself using his own resources.
  10. Reasonable people and both statutes and case law likely consider using the pic of another boat fraud in the inception ( of a contract ). HR is a bad boy. No surprise there.
  11. If we concede Gilligan to HR then he becomes Skipper. Maybe of stones but surely not of a vessel. Hold the fort guys! Seems FH has a lot of work needed to meet charter requirements. Any thoughts?
  12. Re. LL fight I know personally that one of the LL harbor people has a completely different version tha HR does. Who with any experience doubts that the other has yet a third. Or that HR has oh so many more? BTW. In Paris is an old, beat up looking, long boat moored on the Seine with what looks like an old Nash Rambler where FH had the bike. It's probably an old French car unfamiliar to me. As to the boat, think of the Highlander TV show. Still, just as odd as the FH bike. HR is so international...
  13. Ire HD engineering. Picture the FH above the waterline in chrome or diamond plate. The latter may add structural integrity if joints overlap
  14. Things are slow. We need more tits. Someone pony up.
  15. 1/4" galvanized is what I used for my back yard lagoon dock. Inside and outside corners. All stringers (joists). 1./4" seem undersized for a 65' yacht. In fact, I witnessed a neighbors dock split even with 1/4" when the lagoon pumps failed and pretty much emptied it. Really... just a few months ago. The dock is replaced. One thing, It lists badly for the gardener who built it forgot about the weight of the ramp Think 45 degree angle at that point load.
