Welcome to the site where the owners and members have had it with playing "nice" and being "inclusive" and "tolerant" of points of view that are destroying the fabric of what made this country great. The members here are sick and tired of politicians of all parties lying, deceiving, stealing, and pretending they are doing it all for the good of the country while selling out to special interests who have the set goal of destroying this country. We have had enough of career politicians who use their office only for personal gain, and who refuse to listen to the people who put them in office. The membership is no longer part of the silent majority who play nice and get along while getting screwed by anyone with a loud voice and an agenda. We will no longer allow anyone to piss down our back and tell us it's raining. And we like guns too.

Default Took my boat out for the first time this morning

It was interesting. First, I went swimming trying to board the boat from the dock but that was pretty much expected. Then I got it out in the water to find that there was even less wind than I expected, so after turning this way and that trying to catch a breeze, I finally gave up and paddled back to the ramp.
When I attempted to recover the boat, I found that it has a leak in the daggerboard chase and had taken on water, so I have a muscle strain from trying to lift the bow up on the trailer. Probably a good thing there was no wind.

Nothing a little JB Weld or Marine Expoxy can't fix.

You could have sunk, if there HAD been a wind. Real fortunate!

Well, there's always another day to christen you creation.

I don't remember him EVER mentioning flotation.
Whether material or chambers.

No, I'm fine. I cut some inspection ports in and added some glue in the daggerboard chase. I've been hanger flying her, trying to improve on my mistakes. I missed this thread because I never think to check this section.

Ahh... You are all right then. Was afraid you went back out, caught some wind and couldn't make it back.
Being the only one aboard, you might have played "Captain, down with the ship."
