Okay.  Here is where I see this movie in the future:  It will be a huge cult film among sailors.  They will host "Rocky Horror Picture Show" type party/showings where yacht club members will dress up in Land's End crap and bring props to respond to classic moments in the movie.

- Such as when he first wakes up and wades through the water.  All will shout, "Use a bailing bucket." and throw buckets into the aisles.

- Later they can shout, "Where's the fucking pump handle.  It's supposed to be lashed nearby."

- They can throw butterfly bandages in the air and shout, "Not even duct tape sticks to wet skin."

- The second time it floods, the audience can shout, "Close the port light Dipshit.  Can't you see there is already a hole in the deck."

- And, on and on...


There are so many things to call out.  This will be the rage of YCs all over as soon as it is out on DVD - probably tomorrow.


Freakin hilarious!  Love it.

Home made recipe? Anyone? 


Add S. Thermophilus to the mix?

My experiences -


Epoxy doesn't stick to dacron/polyester.

So any NON treated dacron cloth will release, but be careful of any coated cloths - may leave contaminants.


And the poly batting is fine too.  Doesn't matter if it's a quality product - i doesn't come in actual contact with your project.


Avoid cotton, it can become a permanent part of your project.

Nonsense, more than half the fun is screwing up and learning the hard way. At least it was for me. If you're already an expert, why bother?


 It's a Hobie 16 - a Great boat for teenagers to learn, crash, splash and have a blast on!

It's not like you're offering them an AC72 or a top fuel hydro....

Hitting the same mark 3 times in one race?  WTF - are you not capable of avoiding hitting stuff? - if so you probably should not be on a racecourse


 ... after I, unintentionally, hit the upwind mark three times in a row in one race ...

Was on RC start boat, had a guy over early, he came back 3 times failing to sail to the prestart side of the line. He was cussing at me eloquently each time he had to try again....


After the race he came up to me and apologised sincerely.
