  1. Well, back then sex was safe and there were these “racer chasers”. Better for the sport and our community to have those women on the bow or in the afterguard, but yeah, the PC crowd is over the top.

  3. You are right. Bankrolled by Richard Devos who made his money with Amyway (which is just one big pyramid scam) and his totally unqualified wife bought the job of Secretary of Education by being Trump's largest donor..... not really the type of people you want to cheer for... It is nice the NYYC is back involved, but what are they going to put on the sails? A large Amway logo, now that is classy. As far as the new logo, how many times can you arrange the same three colors into an eagle? It looks like they are trying to capture the eagle as it swoops down to attach prey. One of the ma

  4. My fundamental views about this sort of thing are; 1. If you've seen two you want to see them all. 2. If someone is whining about something being "inappropriate" I assume they are a tight assed douche and immediately want to see a lot of whatever it is they are whining about.

  12. I am sorry for what happened to your wife. You might not be a qualified engineer but you definitely have the admiration of one who lives thousands of miles away. I am sure that as soon as you manage to turn things around, you will bring it to the next level! I've done a bit of long distance cycling here in Europe, there are some fully faired velomobile turning up at events but IMHO they look clumsy compared to yours. It's the first time I see a 2 wheels bike faired with a rigid shell that look actually usable on public roads.

  14. Here's an old theory. From 16 onwards (your age) add 10 years (her age). 18:28 etc... Carry on until you get to 32, at which time she's 42 (in her prime, actually). Then she stays 42 until you're 52. Thereafter it goes into reverse, so subtract a year from her age for every year you age. By the time you're 65, you're with 29 year-olds. Then keep doing 29 year-olds for as long as you live. Which may not be very long, but why should you care? It's a simple graph. YMMV

  15. I beg to differ sir. First of all there is plenty of time for variety during the appetizer. In addition, if it is a new lady, putting her on top sends a message to her that you are confident enough in your masculinity that you don't mind assuming the inferior position, which is traditionally occupied by the lady.

  16. Just put 'em on top. Solves the whole problem, you don't have to do push ups and she doesn't have to worry about being crushed. In my experience, the ladies really enjoy it.

  24. Been doing shift work last week, kind of a baby sitting job, drop tools and run when things break down. You work from 3:30 pm till 2 am and it's easy to have a bit of time up your hands to fill in. one of the young fellas decided to build this: I was sitting beside him when his mum rung him up last night, "WTF is this?" I gave him the hard-wood to make the handle (Rimu), He Did a darn good job at making it look 100 years old.

  25. ^^^ Oh shit, look at the scope on his anchor warp. Now lets think about this, I don't believe that the marina would have let him stay one day without some sort of insurance, and he said what "boat's worth 5 mill as it stands now" or something like that. See where I'm heading with this?

  26. Ya gotta read the entire thread! I mentioned that a few weeks ago - it's exactly what the FH looks like. His gun slit ports only added to the effect. Sorry I missed that Sloop, my schedule only allows me time to skim this.. This thread needs a weekly digest/summary. Get back into your mothers basement and spend an appropriate amount of time here. Farken funny!

  27. I wonder? Would it be possible for the Flying Hawaiian to go faster than the wind, If going directly down wind? Let's face it, What Hot Rod has done so far has been so far from expectations is it an imposable expectation? I think we have all underestimated the strength of a glass over ply build, and those annoying 4 by 2 beams were just a form for the "real" structure.

  28. O.K. Tom, here's one for ya, I know just how much you love the idea of a mast on a motor boat. http://www.trademe.co.nz/motors/boats-marine/yachts/keeler/auction-606450589.htm Could be a little narrow for the average user but the Vee berth to double bunk conversion is rather nifty!

  29. The "Perry Sliver Class Daysailor". Or we could call them the "Perry 95 Square Metre Class". We had better get cracking on the class rules, sail emblem, etc....I nominate Robert Perry as Fleet Captain. (Will we require sheathed strip plank construction?) Interesting choice of class names there, Kimb. I'd say its a no-contest. Hands up all those who want a 'Perry Sliver Class Daysailer' Now, hands up all those who want a 'Perry 95 Square Metre Class" boat. "Perry 95 Square Metre Class' wins it by 3 to 1. Nope, you’d have to stick with the 'Perry Sliver Class Daysai

  33. Thanks for the work Spoffo, I notice you said that high tide is in the afternoon, that means that the tides are getting smaller until next month. If he don't get it to deeper water soon its going to be a problem. I don't know how many drying out cycles that thing could take.

  34. You read it wrong, What HR does not understand is that when tides go past midday they get smaller until they get close to midday (midnight) again. At 53 minuets later every day it's a 28 day cycle. He thinks that tomorrows tide will be the same size as todays and that floating the boat off the mud bank will be the same, hence spending the time cleaning etc and not being to concerned. The epic fail of the boat is going to be fun to watch, I just hope that we are not watching the epic fail of the man. Won't be all that much fun seeing Hotrod getting taken away by the men in white coats.

  37. That's how they work here, Is it not the same world-wide? That's actually an honest question, Tide cycles are baised on moon cycles. I have assumed the what happens here (cycle wise) is the same all over the world.

  38. Ah, little different to here, 1.6 difference from hight and low tide and 0.6 difference in two (high) tides in the same day? WTF? Well, at least he doesn’t have to deal with the 4.5 we have here. (average)

  39. When a windlass rips out, a large piece of boat should come with it. Unless maybe the "mount" consisted of some lags into 2x4s. Take a bog standard 8 by 1/2 screw and screw it into a bit of cheap pine, the try to rip it out with a pair of pliers. Kinda hard work isn’t it? Yea, four of them will hold a windlass down, I mean, just how heavy is an anchor? See just what kind of mentality we are dealing with here? Hotrod just has NO understanding of loads on a boat whatsoever, That's what makes it so scary that he think that his "boat" could make it to the Pacific. I do

  43. Anyways Hotrod, How is the boat holding up? And how full is your holding tank? I'm sure your not discharging sewage directly into the water that close to shore. Care to shed some light on the sail plan? How is the steering? Repairable I hope? Any leads on some motors? People here can be helpful if you ask, you just have to ask. There is actually a wealth of knowledge here, You just have to ask if you want advice on how to fix a problem.
