  1. My father inlaw did an analysis of the sediment in their basin. The marina needed dredging. The toxic soup needed expensive disposal. He noted a few interesting things. There was a higher copper, platinum, zinc readings in basin then the control. There is no platinum in boats BTW. The highway runs next to the marina and the runoff from the cars was main source of the copper, zinc and platinum. Lots of Copper from brake pads, platinum from catalytic converters, zinc I can't remember. A good scientist will take samples from a few different sources to figure out what variables are most import
  2. You talk a lot of shit about Republicans owning it. You are just another old fart who can't take responsibility too. This shit was still going on when you were of voting age. It was ended by the time I was born. So fucking own it. We have a responsibility to our country and its people to adress this.
  3. 1 child dieing without their parents is too many. It doesn't matter why the kids died. They were stolen from their parents by us, white christian Canadians. We owe more than we could ever pay. The cause of death is irrelevant, the crime is the Indian Acts of the past and its agents. The churches ran most of these schools but not all, some of the schools were run by provincial governments. So blaming the churches is bullshit. Our governments allowed this, and wrote laws to punish parents who refused. It is bullshit and racist not to recognize the totalitarian roll our country played in their
  4. The residential schools are a national embarrassment. Kids were taken by force away from their parents. First nation Kids aged 3 and up were stolen for reprogramming by our country. If parents didn't send their kids to the schools the parents were sent to jail. Finding 215 Kids buried in a Kamloops residential school is so sad. 215 Kids who died without the parents. Nameless Graves, nameless dead children.
  5. John Booth passed away a couple years ago. He was a great source for anything tbird. I think Vidas has most of the bits now. Vidas should have some idea where you can find one. I know he sold Owl to Port Townsend a few years ago.
  6. Use diamond pattern. For lots of drainage. I've seen no problems.
  7. Hey, glad you had fun in crw. lots of stuff works. We have used foam from camping pads, it works well, but does compress over time. Hydroturf, seadek, raptor, all good stuff too. Talk with Dan K at Raptor, a site advertiser.
  8. His rating is 171 I think compared to old of 196. I think 242 rates 165 in NW.
  9. I think fleet captain, Alex Fox, owns a t bird atm. Try talking to him or Vidas Stukas at rvic. Vidas has a Turbobird now. He put a flush deck, moved the mast aft 18", swept spreaders and new keel with bulb. He can hang in with M242 in Wed nights.
  10. Let's start with properly funding public education?
  11. Here is a photo of our damage. The compression post punched through the T beam
  12. Fix it. There are many boats that have had a failed T beam. Ours did in 2015, hull# 591, which is a 2005. We fixed it and continue to sail it at a high enough level for weekend warriors. Our fix was done by a pro, as the damage included the coach house. It wasn't that bad for the fix, he said, but grinding is shitty in confined space.
  13. We have a twist shackle for head of jib in heavier air. I tie with dyneema in the lighter air to give me some height.
  14. Why didn't you all try to buy Canada out? I say we strike a deal. We have a 2 trillion gdp, 25 year amortization, 10% down. I'd be willing to sell out for 300 trillion. That would be be about 300000/per person per year for next 25 years. Surprised Trump didn't try it.
  15. Feel better? Sounds like you are just another republican snowflake.
