    Best app to mirror laptop to android tablet

    I know I have seen this discussed extensively in the past, but either the search function is crap or I am a technical luddite (or both). What do you suggest? Can it be done by bluetooth, or do I need to use the wifi?

    Bunk cover material

    I need to replace the bunk and cushion covers on a racer cruiser. Any suggestions on a material (other than vinyl or leather), which is waterproof so that the foam doesn't absorb water from crew in wet weather gear, sails etc. Preferably want something comfortable for cruising, deliveries etc.

    Polyester bog underwater

    Against my better instincts I bought a 5knt shitter for restoration. After taking off 20 layers of antifoul I found large chunks of gelcoat had come off under the waterline. What do you think if I fill with polyester bog and paint with epoxy will this hold up if I put back on a mooring?

    Adhesive removal

    The time has come to remove the EVA foam from our cockpit. Anyone got any suggestions on the best way to get the residual adhesive off? Its the 3M backing which comes on the EVA sheets. I have heard that there are flapper wheels/discs that take it off without damaging the gel coat?

    Multihull division confirmed for P2C. Cat 3 race and great destination, if not the best there is. Would be a real pity not to get a strong multi fleet at a strong multi club.

    GPS question

    So when in the berth, my SOG is consistently 0.2kn to the north. Anyone know how this can happen? I thought the way GPS data was averaged would make this impossible. Surely you cant manually celebrate?

    Lowering the bar

    Ronning then reaches down, unstraps a buckle, pulls his carbon-fiber prosthetic leg off, and slams it on the table in front of god and everyone, shouting “Is this disabled enough for you?” A differing account says Neckelmann asked why he wasn’t allowed to have the same bar installed on his...

    A Class AGM

    I think the high cost of A class cats was raised in the AGM minutes at least 4 times. With the rule 8 fracas settled down cost appears the current big issue. There is no record or any discussion as to what can be done about this, if anything. I have to admit I balk at the cost of a new A...

    Fusion LiPo batteries

    Anyone familiar with these? Website blurb say they have internal discharge and overcharge protection. Does anyone know what voltage the protection cuts in at and whether you would rely on it, to protect the batteries? I've sent a few emails to Fusion with no response.

    Invasion Texas

    I was thinking that it was strange that there were no reports here on the military takeover of Texas that is all over the Aus news. But clearly I wasn't thinking right. Since it is obvious that SA members have the biggest gun collections out side of Charlton Heston's fort, Texan SA members would...
