      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.

Perfect, thanks. I'm just taking a neoprene mousepad, cutting a hole and a slit, then put a Velcro closure across the slit so we can put it on after the sprit is out. More of a spray blocker than a true gasket.

 

Definitely not perfect, but a decent McGyver for the odd case where we need it.

Have you thought of using a toilet plunger' end.?. I have been playing around with those plumbing rubber step downs for large pvc pipe. as they have a nice ridge around them for a large clamp. Used it in the ST Petersburg to Ft Myers race and it helped a lot. Most of the race on the nose into 5 footers 15-22kntsof wind. Iwe put a return line on the pole so we could get some presure on the rubber for it to seal.Thinking of doing the same on the inside end of the pole so it seals when pole is out.
