      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.

I have a new blog entry

71 posts in this topic

This entry is still a work in progress but I got my ass chewed out last night ( more or less) for not blogging more so here it is. I have asked Sons to add some of his renderings and try to make it look prettier. I am still struggling with the mechanics of the blog program anbd half the time I can't even find the fucking cursor.

 

Sons! Help!

Wey, Olaf:

If I could only tell all the stories I'd have your heads spinning. But I can't.

To quote my favorite movie, "I'll be as discreet as the next man." said with a thick south african black accent.

But I am glad you both enjoyed the bog.

 

I'm cooking ND's son Alex's favorite roast beef recipe for some pals, tonight. Jill is staying in town at Max's house helping to get the baby's room ready. Oh yeah, I'm going to be a grandpa. Jill is heavy into the nesting mode. I have to keep reminding her, "It's their baby!" But I'm cooking. It's an easy recipe involving 38 intricate steps all involving a lot of garlic. I'm on step 28 right now, "Carfully mash the remaining 47 cloves of stewed garlic between your fore finger and thumb until you get a paste like texture."

How refined... I'm pretty sure the recipe is intended to be made by putting the garlic in a bucket and having a virgin perform a dance in the bucket.

 

Of course I can't talk, I used a fork.

I'm definitely going to have to try that recipe, with a good Merlot.

Heh, I could tell you some stories too, don't you worry about that. Probably not with the same style, and certainly not similar stories, but somewhere in this helter skelter ride we call life, I've had my fair share of "story-worthy" scrapes too. For what it is worth, I'm going to be slow cooking pork belly on board Insatiable this evening. There will be plenty of garlic too (though not quite as much as in your recipe). I have a semi-reasonable 2007 barossa shiraz picked out already.

I had a go at that recipe last weekend, what an adventure in garlic! I've never read a recipe so repeatedly as this one, 'Did they really say to mash the remaining 47 cloves of garlic...' . I had a friend that used to do a roast similar to this with the cloves embedded into the hunk of meat within the knife punctures. He called it the "Tribute To Beef" but didn't roast the cloves before inserting them. Big difference and truly deserving of the title 'Tribute to Beef'. I did the Garlic Salt Rub the night before and the Garlic Oil and the the Garlic IED's hidden within the corpus, the whole nine yards and in the end after doing the braising on the stove top and an hour or so of roasting in the oven, decided that I should dump it all in the crock pot with some celery, carrots, and potatoes in an attempt to dilute the fatal levels of garlic in that roast. It was heaven on your tongue. Maybe I'll have the balls to stay the course the next time and not drown the glory of the triple threat garlic in the crockpot, but I thank Alex for sharing and hope Bob has as excellent result as I did. A bottle of red wine in the crockpot didn't hurt any...

Bob,

If you or someone else optimizes the meta data/H1 and use some anchor text, your search rankings will improve and more people will find your blog through organic search.

The meta should be about 70 characters. The engines will read and index against them.

 

So for the meta maybe something like -

Robert Perry Yacht Design | Sailboat Reviews Yacht Design Boat Information

 

I didn't do much keyword research but you get the idea. For example, 'sailboat review' gets an average of 12,100 searches in the US per month and the competition for those keywords is low, meaning you can rank highly pretty fast.

The current meta - CA36 to blog or not to blog - doesn't mean jack to the search engines.

 

Just a thought, worth as much as it cost ya! :)

A SALTY DOG is one of my very favorite tunes. I have it on vinyl. I really relate personally to the line:

Perhaps you could blog about the CA39, or possibly the CA40.5 if you decide to s-t -r -e -t -c -h it a tad.

 

A great base to work from with the CA36 thread. You shelved the CA39 project early on for another day. Perhaps that day has come. I certainly hope so.

As a simple example, go here and hover your cursor over your browser tab. The landing page meta would be an example of long tail keywords. Most of the other onsite pages are short tail keywords.

Starkers:

I think we played with quite a few ideas and I kept them all. I chose the CA 36 because it sort of marks the beginnings of the WLYDO when we all came together to work on a boat. I also chose it because Iwaas being pressed tpo blog and it was all I could think of that I could do quickly. I'd like to blog about some of my older designs but I'd have to get the drawings digitized first. That's not a big deal but it means I have to drive to town and these days it takes dynamite to get me off the beach.

 

I feel very lucky to have Sons' help with my blogging attempts.

Bob,

 

Blog away. It's great to have your insight, and you are brave and noble to do so.

 

My spouse did her MBA largely through an established online program. They had online discussion groups for all the classes and projects. By the end of the program, they all knew each other much better than if they they had sat together in a classroom for two years (although they were all over the world). Strangely enough, the online setting broke down barriers and encouraged broader participation (24X7!). That's what you have done with the WLYDO, and by your setting an example of open and honest communication. I applaud you.

 

Sincerely,

 

Starkers

 

P.S. I still pine for CA39!

OK, I have a proposal for WYLDO, and will start a new thread if you guys think it is a goer.

 

I have been hunting for a new boat for a while now, and recently settled on an Adams 36 Traditional.

 

If you guys are not familiar with Joe Adams, he designed a range of nice boats in Oz from the late 70's to the 90's, probably the Adams 10 is his best know boat.

 

With many of his designs, he deliberately ignored the IOR and rating rules and just designed fast boats.

 

The one I settled on is remarkably similar to the CA36, same size, displacement, underwater shape, but differs with a normal NACA fin and a skeg hung rudder.

 

Even has a cutter rig and small pilothouse / hard dodger, although not as tall as the CA36, you can see the bow from the forward windows.

 

Anyway, this is a proven racer and a quick boat, with good sails and gear.

 

Survey and test sail were good, so the deal is go.

 

But the interior is crap. Structurally OK for a racer, needs a redesign for a cruiser.

 

So is WYLDO interested in doing an interior redesign? I dont want to completely gut what is there, but I want to optimise it for cruising.

 

Here is the listing, http://yachthub.com/list/yachts-for-sale/used/sail-monohulls/adams-traditional-36/102019

Good long distance cruiser for a couple.

Room for two guests.

Make some sort of use of the low "Pilothouse" in lousy weather.

More water and diesel tankage.

Keep systems low tech and owner repairable.

The bulkheads are structural and I would like the leave them alone if possible.

 

I already have the gear to sort out the topsides, nothing structural there.

I'm happy to leave the traveller where it is at the moment, although the original design has it on the cabin top, so that is an option.

Its a big main, and I like the idea of all the sail controls being near the wheel.

Rig is a cutter, but the staysail is set flying, so I will get a rigger to set a removable wire inner stay.

Forestay currently has a Harken foil, thinking of just using hanks for the moment and seeing how they go.

 

I have a nice Aries no5 vane ready to fit, the one that tilts and is easy to remove.

I think we can accomodate Cave on the team. I'll put it to a vote in the next Board meeting. He seems like an alright chap to me. Maybe an entry level position, pruning the Scum-Ex pads. I need to see some serious ass kissing first. But I'm not comfortable being the "boss man". I am going to demote myself to Titular Head of the Drafting Division (I like the "titular" part) and I think kdh would be a better bossman. By the looks of his boat he seems to have done the boss man thing right.

All in favor?

Aye.

I am deeply honored by this recommendation.

 

My management tends to be of the "do whatever the fuck you want to do" style, but my sense is that will work out just fine around here. Who am I to put any constraints on the unbridled creativity and childish banter going in on in our little tree fort here?

 

And since I didn't even know who Jack London was, I'll need some on-the-job training before I'm able to contribute to our efforts in any meaningful way.

 

Now I'm off to peruse our stack of Playboys.

Maybe we can get the Wizard of Tulalip to comment on Capaz. There are 110 pictures in the Yachtworld listing for this boat, by far the most I've ever noticed, and a lot of very nice features are shown, along with some gear I don't recognize. It's about 12 times over budget for me, which is something of a pity, as I have some vacation coming.

EDIT: I just noticed it's called "San Miguel"... my favorite lager beer in HK goes well with curry too :D

Maybe we can get the Wizard of Tulalip to comment on Capaz. There are 110 pictures in the Yachtworld listing for this boat, by far the most I've ever noticed, and a lot of very nice features are shown, along with some gear I don't recognize. It's about 12 times over budget for me, which is something of a pity, as I have some vacation coming.

I could easily love that boat.

I am going to Melbourne next week to set her up, and plan a delivery back to Hobart in the next few weeks.

 

Once I have the boat home I will be in a position to measure it up and post a plan, so we might have to wait a few weeks before we kick off.

 

Nice looking boat.

 

Count me in as an Aye for KDH. But if he starts demanding productivity metrics and status reports I tend to be unresponsive.

Each project we do tends to have a project manager anyway to share the love.

Well, we made it home, the boat is nicely tucked up at the club at the moment.

 

I have also managed to get my hands on the original builders correspondence and talked to the original owner.

I am the fourth owner, the second has passed on, so we all know each other now.

May be able to get my hands on Bob Adams' plans, talked to his office, usual discussion, costs a bit open ended at the moment.

 

I will measure up and sketch the interior over the next few weeks and post details and pics.

 

Has anyone bookmarked the original CA36 drawings thread?

No, but the search function worked remarkably well.
