    R.I.P. Laurie Davidson

    Yep, that's the one - I wonder what happened to her. I was crew on the competition, but knew Pete from the clubs and he invited me to sail with them one day - a very early shake-down sail, actually - and it was blowing like heck. I step aboard and quickly noticed the dinghy-swivels on the...

    Running small shop vac on inverter

    Completely separate from the power considerations, the "Bucket Head" makes for THE MOST unstable vacuum I have ever had to use. Give it one sideways look and it falls right over - top heavy & narrow, it's more annoying than useful.

    We had a great red and white IMS design, about 42 feet, here in Hawaii, arrived '92-ish. Originally it was "Power Play" and then later "Outlaw", and then sold back to down under.

    Republicans have hit rock bottom

    Cue the "Gee, I DON'T KNOW HOW those fellas got the idea they needed to HURT anybody, just because we've been telling them the others aren't full citizens and are REPLACING them."

    Bob Perry is Legend

    Great pic, silly thread. Never had a whiff of BP's politics, and doubt he was in the "the press in the enemy of the people" wing of anything.

    Hobie Magic 25 Running Rigging Diagram?

    When in doubt, just copy a Melges 24. After all, that's pretty much what they did, just heavier.

    What ever happened to the Moore 30

    Getting tough with the anti-vaxxers

    Just last week was informed of a high school friend who has passed away - an DIY affair - who was severely Trumpy and anti-vaxxy and was deeply upset at not being able to work a special gig that required the vax - don't know at all if that was a straw-that-broke-the-camel's-back deal or what but...
