    If you want to help, tell us idiots how you'd fix it. Otherwise you're just another parasite.

    Dude, just because you don't know us, doesn't mean we haven't done exactly what you propose to the people who matter.

    We once had to cut the outhaul on a Farrier 28C that nearly got away from us. Worked great!

    fix it story

    I wasn't going to admit it, but since you had the 'nads to start a thread about it, almost exactly 12 hours ago I was cutting out a piece of rotted decking in the bilge, and using my lovely Fein Multitool cut a 1/8" slice in the bottom of my hull about 2 feet long.

    Anyone have a vyacht wifi router unit?

    Update - looks like the problem was with the pair (!) of Garmin GFS-10 Fuel Flow sensors, or how I had them connected. Once I connected a GPS antenna and a depth transducer (thanks, Defender Warehouse Sale), the data flowed as expected. Now I need to figure out if I actually got two bad...

I'm posting on behalf of the skipper, and I think I can say accommodations in Halifax are available, unless you're a dick and he doesn't want you in his house. You'll need to cover airfare back to...

    Atlantic Cup 2014: ready to rumble

    RM - I'm reminded of how incredibly gracious you were to me when I bricked up American Girl. It just sucks to run aground. What a relief that injuries were minor, and that Dragon will breathe fire again soon. There are two kinds of sailors in the world: Those who have run aground, and...
