Re: Spinglines When Along Side--Nylon or Polyester?

You've developed an informed rationale for your choice of rope that works for you, and you've transcended dogma in the process. I'm certainly not going to second-guess you with more dogma.
But since...

Re: Is flying a pirate flag lame?

Yes, that would be an attack.
But the original question, and the one most people are responding to, was whether "flying a pirate flag was lame". It wasn't: "are the people who fly pirate flags...

Re: Is flying a pirate flag lame?

Some also perceive attacks where there are none.

Re: Is flying a pirate flag lame?

Wow--You mean you can't even say '****' on this board? What a bunch of ****.
Not being able to say **** is lame.
Now I think I'll go take a **** and think about it.
What do you think this word...

Re: Is flying a pirate flag lame?

You're right, of course, Captain Jack and your point is well-made. But it's a chicken-or-egg question. Look at some of the posts by the pro-JR people who personalize any negative statements re:...

Re: Is flying a pirate flag lame?

From what I can distill (n.p.i.) from the comments, it appears that flying a pirate flag indicates that you donít give a s___ what others think; youíll follow your own voice. Cool.
So, if youíve...

Yep. It's lame.

Re: Honda 9.9hp Outboard Won't Start

The click makes it sound like the engine may not be turning over when you pull the cord. If the cord doesn't unwind when you pull on it, the engine is seized. Take the plugs off, squirt some...

Re: Question about spreader/rigging geometry

Faster's first post is right.
The spreaders should bisect the shroud angle. You can take a piece of cardboard and a Sharpie up there, and use it to check for identical shroud angles above and below...

Re: 5411 Kept Slowing Then Quit

As stated above, check all your fuel filters, check for a clogged dip tube as suggested above (and ditch the screen on the tube if there is one). You might want to check out the rest of the supply...

Re: How to put epoxy for screw mounting into a void???

That's a disappointing response from them but it was worth a try.
How is water getting in the liner??? Should be bone dry in there. Are there other holes in the deck, or was water leaking in via the...

Re: How to put epoxy for screw mounting into a void???

It will probably have to be a lengthy experiment. Damage/weakness around the fasteners in your track probably occurred over a prolonged period of repeated stress.
You might try shooting an email to...

Re: How to put epoxy for screw mounting into a void???

Look at those round plastic things you can stick to the wall where a doorknob hits it. I've seen off-white ones in Lowe's about 6" in diameter. Might cover the hole(s) in the liner. Whatever you use,...

Re: How to put epoxy for screw mounting into a void???

Jarcher, a couple observations re your post. First, you can't be sure the epoxy will adhere to either deck or liner without cleaning and roughing each surface.
Crush-proofing the space between the...

Re: Block choices ... so many options

Looks like you have 3 choices: Garhauer, Garhauer or Garhauer.
Afraid I can't help you with that decision.

Re: How to put epoxy for screw mounting into a void???

Good ideas for getting the epoxy into the void, but I'm not sure it's the solution.
The thickened epoxy trick is to keep water migrating down the fastener hole from spreading into the wood core. Not...

Re: Deck hardware: OK to attach with screws only?

That may be a bigger problem than whether your halyards run back to the cockpit or not.
Why is there a gap there?
How thick is the 'surface of the deck'? If I understand you right, your description...

Re: Favorite Bosun Chair

Instead of ascenders, I use klemheist or prusick knots. They do the same thing, are pretty fool-proof to tie, cost next to nothing, and for the infrequent trips the cost savings more than offsets the...

That statement, I think, is more salient than the fact that the crime occurred in the first place. One tragic crime doesn't tell us anything about the statistical likelihood of similar crimes in the...

Re: Mast foot block ??

You'll have to see how looks once it's rigged, and how it sails. Excessive mast rake increases the tendency to broach, but 'excessive' depends.
Also, you're angling the spreaders backwards, which...

Re: Favorite Bosun Chair

Go to an EMS or other mountianeering store and look at rock climbers' sit harnesses. Much less expensive without the boat picture on the box. I have a Petzl, mid-grade, $60 on sale marked down from...

Re: How do I repair a hole my cleat ripped in my deck?

That's the way I'd go too, whatever you use for the backing plate.
But you have to make sure the deck integrity wan't compromised to begin with. Was the plywood core rotted where the cleat pulled...
