      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.

This stuff is great. We installed it under our cushions in the forward berth and have had *zero* problems with condensation since.

If you are considering importing some to Oz, they don't ship outside the Continental US.

May need to use a third party shipper.

I need a boat full as well, would be interested in how you get it here, or sharing an order.

Thats the way guys. There are specialist shippers to Oz over there for all the Ebayers. US delivery address, will hold to make a "shipping " package and send.

 

Most stuff is free shipping to the continental.

 

How do I know, an ageing BMW.

Looks like the price is about the same after some rough calulations there is only $6 between them & not much in the exchange rate at the moment- do you think the US stuff looks like better quality?

I found some in Aus so i'll check it out - otherwise I have a MyUS account :)/>

What do think of this Mr Farty - sorry i saw that in another thread & cried laughing

:lol:/>

 

No offence.

I have no idea on quality, I guess plastic is plastic.

 

We just want to stay cool in Queensland, so whatever it costs .

I suspect transport of stuff with that amount of volume from the US would not be cheap.

I would go for the Oz stuff as well.

 

Are you just using foam for the mattress, or is there something that breathes as well?

We are just upgrading from foam to "Springs fully insulated with extra deep ultra density premium plus foam". We use the boat most wekends & will retire on it probably. We ended up with the bottom of the foam being a bit soggy in QLD last year.

This is a hilarious example of "marine" products pricing versus more terrestrial applications. It's actually called Enkadrain and costs less than $1.50 a square foot - used for foundation drainage it's pretty much the state of the art.

 

I've got a 150'x5' (45x1.6m) roll in my garage. Not sure what shipping would cost to AUS - it's about .5m in diameter...

Look here: http://www.colbond-u...tion-walls.html

 

There's a sketchy Enkadrain brochure on the right side of the page. It's the same stuff.

 

The version I have is 1.6m wide - perfect for a queen-size berth. The newest version is made of recycled HDPE - mine was the pure stuff - suitable for a virgin berth. ;-)

Exellent how fat is yours?

Enkadrain 9120 is what I see on a US price sheet - 0.8" (2 cm thick). comes in 1x30m rolls. $1.21/ft2; roughly $300 per roll. Don't think 1/4" will allow enough air to circulate.

This is the sort of talk that makes CA great.

 

Ozee, it's nice to have you visiting. I feel honored to have the cover girl with us humble cruisers here.

 

I love Star Trek too. Which is your favorite series? I have to go with Jean Luc. "Engage."
