      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.

Group Finot and Gate's lines drawing

Send them a picture of the actual model, and one of rasp's renderings. Ask them if they can tell which one is real!

No way...I don't want Rasp to find out how good he is. I won't be able to afford him.

I somehow missed this thread while it was happening, but wanted to say how incredible all this work has been, from Bob trying to assist in getting the drawings, to Rasputin's amazing efforts on the lines drawings and renderings, to Gates half hull, and everyone else's contributions.

 

Kudos, it has been a great thread!

A month? It took you a whole month to make two models.

I'm going to have to send you some Seattle coffee.

 

Come to think of it, that's pretty damn amazing.

Good on ya Gate.

Two?? That's three...and not very impressive if considered "a job". I really like my new job!!

 

Thanks Bob...you had a hand in it.

Gate, watch out! Seattle deer leave a deposit that looks like a pile of coffee beans.

 

Come to think of it, that would explain Starbucks.

When you put on as many coatings Gate does, you spend a lot of time waiting for them to dry hard enough to sand them off, ready to apply the next coat.

Semi:

That was just my lame attempt at humor.

I treasure my Gate model of Kim's boat. I can see it from where I sit all day.

 

I went to visit Kim's boat on Saturday as part of my "presentation" at the Marine Symposium. For my afternoon session I had everyone meet at the yard where they stood around and asked questions about Kim's boat. It was fun and it saved me from having to stand in front of the group and talk. It saved the group from having to listen to me.

...and I was only that slow because you kept pushing me to improve, improve, improve & you kept sending back to my workbench.

I treasure my copy too! So does SWMBO, she likes to stare at it. I guess we had better get her the real one someday.

Damn that works well there...it's nice the Slivers found good homes.

 

I'm working on a custom 12m hull now for a client in Portugal and an Islander 30 for the Seattle area. Pics to follow.
