  1. Says its still there - perhaps just not moving...
  2. My best wishes for a full and speedy recovery Hobot
  3. plus the penalty is that they have to fall X meters behind LR. If LR is going nowhere, they'd have to tread water till LR got going again. or go backwards... silly idea
  4. Clarification required - are those coat hooks, electrical insulators or bulbless lighting fixtures?
  5. No mention of the benefits of actually embracing them. If looking at them 10 minutes a day gets you cardiovascular improvements - 20 mins holding them must be a full body workout. Oh, hey
  6. did you get the picture though?
  7. Kiwi Marmite (yum) English Marmite (blec) Ausi Vegemite (close second to Kiwi (Sanitarium) marmite.)
  8. isnt there something in the regs that says that the windward foil has to be out before ??? time or distance after a maneuver?
  9. Why are ETNZ waiting so long to launch B2? so competitors dont have time to copy innovations revealed they are so confident that they dont need to practice something has gone wrong and they are busy fixing it building dramatic suspense waiting for the weather to warm up modding B2 based on what they have seen from the competitors boats
  10. 50 cases and a 3 foot door. I'd be nervous about having to crawl in to get the last out.
  11. And that, is the end of that. Too bad, would have been interesting to see to conclusion. But I think he has come to the inevitable conclusion that SV Rusty Junk is a was a curious project, but that German Engineering is way more liable to lead to a long and happy life. Too bad. The (video of the) train wreck is avoided due to lack of stick-to-it-ness. 85% complete. It'll be a bargain for someone.
  12. Math/Engineering thing. Thinking about it - it is a measure of the stability, so by saying 'at least 20' means that the boat needs to have at least a minimum righting moment. MWP is the design waterline (in profile) at rest.
  13. Holly molly! Not sure it wouldnt just turtle if it ever got loose from the dock...
  14. 350K - runs like a top. Love this car.
  15. who's been tested? I am enjoying the assumption that I have not gotten the virus and so my regime must be effective against it. That said, I think a large number of the population, possibly myself included, could be carrying it, and unaware. I havent been tested, no symptoms. So to answer the question, i recommend a dry red, particularly nuanced with the smokey environs, followed by a finger or two of scotch (to your palate), occasionally preceded with a punchy gin drink - may i suggest a Negroni. Food optional.
  16. if you want to be a pirate... that said, lots of streaming services can recognize vpn addresses (how?) and block. Eg Netflix if I leave the VPN on.
  17. What a glorious spot - happy for you and all your companions that it survived
  18. I've just learnt that 32nds arent used in boat building (thanks Leo), but I've been taught to use 'hairs' in construction - hair colour and origin indicating the size of the hair which typically is less thatn a 32nd...
