  • Dear Community Members,

    Updated 9/29/20 - Upgrades have been pushed until 10/7/20

    Over the last two years, there have been updates to the environment that have introduced challenges in usability, performance, and security. Efforts to improve the technology, user interface and site performance have revealed weaknesses in the platform and outdated software our site uses. This has made it increasingly difficult and frustrating to support and upgrade to more modern reliable standards that users deserve. This is not the experience we want for the members of this community.

    Members want a fast site that performs well across all devices, to be able to find relevant and interesting content, and easily share through text, images, video, and messaging on a secure platform. Our goal is to provide this user experience to all members. We will be updating to a new platform to better meet the needs of this community and allow us to provide support more efficiently. Our focus is to create a sustainable platform that performs well and loads faster on all devices while offering seamless ways to search and connect. Technology is constantly innovating - by creating an environment that we control we can maintain the site with more frequent improvements and maintenance updates.

    Although change can be difficult, we are here to support you through the process. We make every effort to review existing settings and make the changes needed so the migration goes smoothly. If you notice something doesn’t seem correct once the site goes live, don’t panic! We’ll have a dedicated person monitoring as the site goes live to answer any questions and provide support through this change.

    What’s next?
    When will this be happening? The plan is to put our current forums into maintenance mode (off line) at around 9am MST on 10/7/2020! The whole transition should take 30-36 hours. We recognize the user experience is slow and there are bugs from the outdated software. The sooner we can change that the better we can make the experience for you. You’ll start to see activity related to cleanup in preparation for migration very shortly. We will post an announcement to the community prior to starting the actual data migration.

    We appreciate each member’s contribution to this community and look forward to an improved experience for you all.

      Re: Starcraft Progress

      and one more picture of the splashwell that I was grinding on today. One of my projects today was to go to HF and get a new toy. I got one of the soda blasters they have on sale and will try it out next weekend on the inside of the boat to see how well I can clean it up. If I can wait that long to play with it LOL.

          Well changed the name but the game is the same. I hope this change will get more views and get my questions answered as I am trying to stay in my thread instead of asking seperate questions as I was told. I will also add a thanks to all who watch and help.

              Hello all, can someone tell me if there is a way to combine my threads into just the one. I changed the names of the titles to all the same as this as I thought they would combine but it did not seem to work or can this even be done. it took me a while just to figure out how to change the title duh.

                PM one of the mods, sweet-talking them may work, but bribes are usually a sure bet

                just kidding...but do pm one of them for help/support.

                      also did a little trailer work and removed the axle and springs to clean them up and repair as needed. as you can see in the picture no wheels. It was easy to remove as all the bolts and nuts just snapped off LOL.

                          Looking good. Make sure you prime any bare aluminum pieces with etching primer.

                                Thanks, I wish putting back together was as quick and easy as taking apart but I guess that's what makes it fun LOL. I will just be glad when the temps. get back below 90 degrees plus as heat index was over 100 yesterday.
