    Are All NMT Threads Really Gone?

    At least he had to good sense to buy a Beneteau 44.7 and not a J28 (voted worst J Boat ever). But then again he wanted to sail and not sit at a dock which the J28 excels at.

    New Jersey Going Nutz?

    Wow, who knew that New Jersey grabberz were TeamR? Or at least aligned with the TeamR view that rights are for rich people?

    New Olympic Dinghy Selection

    The one clear thing is this mess going back ten years is LP owns the Laser trademark in its territories. To my non-lawyer mind, that is legally more significant than any of the convoluted contracts involving five different parties.
  6. I like that US News categorized this under "best states."

    Incest and Rape

    Apparently, the science was settled some time ago...

    Plastic on remote islands

    That's terrible - and while recycling/eliminating new waste is something we should strive for - I'd be interested in hearing ideas about how to best clean up this mess.

    And now on to the hard part: shock, vibration, and fatigue testing. Cheers, Earl

    VR Flight Sim - OMFG!!!

    Remember, strictly one-design. You do NOT want to get involved with lobbying the Rating Committee on this sort of thing....... -DSK

    Are All NMT Threads Really Gone?

    BWHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Porter found a female who could overlook his appearance and became a doctor. Her income allowed him to play Mr. Mom and eventually become the America-hating Limousine Lefty - the Fat Fuck, the Cruising Cuck.

    Uh, no. They said the “legislative purpose” argument from stressing was bogus. Nice foggie deflection try. Fail.

    Be careful Guy, that sounds dangerously anti Republican. “Greed is good. Wealth defines value and is proof of Jesus’s endorsement.” I’d hate for a single rant to alienate you both from here and your chosen party.

    The Discarded- Rescuing a Tartan 33

    Hopefully it's something simple like a bad MC-4 crimp.

    Looking for plumber whose seen it all...............

    The big problem I had years ago in an old house was the tub - it's hair that never disintegrates and that is what the hose down the vent pipe finally cleared. I don't remember what the problem was but an auger/snake couldn't get to it no matter what I did. good luck.

    Brexit, WTF

    Her current plan carefully addresses each of the concerns raised against her previous efforts. It rather casts those against it as hypocrites. Whether she will leave with some sort of intellectual satisfaction from that who knows.

    inflatable sailing ats

    there has been quite a lot of progress in inflatable watercraft in the last few years. i think it started with inflatable paddleboards, where the drive for stiffness improved the technology considerably since the first inflatables. we now have pretty good inflatable windsurfers, - where the demands are arguably more stringent. These boards are easily capable of planing. Certainly, the loads and torques imparted by having strong forces in three locations - mast track, footsraps, and fin.., place quite high demands on the stiffness of the board. not so important for catamarans, but planing windsurfers need sharp rails, for good water release, and they have devised a way to put hard rails where they are needed, and keep the deflated package small. https://vimeo.com/206941581

    Galley equipment

    My next door neighbor, English, takes a small pepper mill in her purse when she goes out. Following on Toddster, Saturday Night Live had a skit years ago about the restaurant pepper grinder. It gets a little out of hand.

    Winterizing

    Yes, it works but @PaulK is right. Blow the water out of the system or vacuum it out. My water system is pretty simple so I use a shop vac connected to the faucets to vacuum the water out of the system. If you have complicated plumbing, you might connect the shop vac to a lower point like a "T" or union rather than a faucet.

    Brexit, WTF

    Gossip; May will be asked to leave PM post tonight. By backbenchers, frontbenchers and all other possible benchers. Tough talk or real action ??? All cabinet members left the HOC while May is still speaking... weird, a sea of green behind her.

    Beneteau Still Floating after Six Months

    Sounds like it was owned by Beneteau, and delivery crew had bad weather.

    Beneteau Still Floating after Six Months

    One of the linked articles says they lost the mast and damaged steering in November, so turned on their EPIRB.

  26. Well...here's the rub- I bought this panel from a local distributor on sale, because it was lightly used as a demonstrator unit on tours around the country. That probably voided any warranty. :-/ That's what I get for being cheap.
