>72 on board (4 crew), 68 confirmed dead, very likely to be no survivors.
>Second video from a Facebook Live stream shows an Indian passenger smiling as the plane approaches the airport, before the video blurs as the plane tilts and crashes. The camera survived the impact and continued to stream a fiery inferno for half a minute.

>Co-pilot had 1 year of experience and was literally seconds away from gaining her professional pilot's license (oof). Tragically, she lost her husband, also a co-pilot, in a 2006 Yeti Airlines crash
>According to ATC, the flight was cleared for a landing on runway 30, but the pilots requested a landing on runway 12. It appears the flight crashed while executing the runway 12 approach.

a friend of mine just impulse bought an ericson 27, 1979 model with a pretty big inboard. She has done I think one sailing lesson with a local yacht club. She plans to live in it at a mooring (not sanctioned) to save money on rent; and take it about in her off time.

She's invited me to come check it out next weekend. I don't know shit about boats (neither does she), but I have electrical and mechanical knowhow to assess basic things like the inboard engine condition and power situation (I hear there's a 12V solar panel and a battery, unsure about if there's any mains inverter or if there's alternator on the inboard). I've sailed once in my life, on a hired catamaran, as a crew of 3, rotating jobs. That's the extent of my boat knowledge.

I plan to just run through with her how to maintain the inboard and go over electrical and fire safety stuff. Aside from that, do people here with more experience have any wise advice, suggestions of things for me to check / assess, or tips on how to approach sailing? I have read that people who are good can sail this kindof boat on their own, just being careful about tacking. Is this true? How long should she expect to be training and sailing in controlled conditions before taking some more risks in terms of weather and distance from a harbour?

What navigational / obstacle avoidance tools would you recommend? Should she download coastal hazard maps? Is some kindof GPS map display at the helm useful or excessive?

thanks for your time!

>Your friend did something very stupid. It may be cheaper than rent, but the amount of time and money you’re putting into maintenance, repairs, and insurance will negate that.
What I'm hoping to gather from this thread is enough information to make sure that the worst case is she sells the boat, not that it ends up destroyed or she ends up dead or in legal trouble. The biggest thing I have taken away at this point is that she/we should probably not be sailing without either having some people who know what they're doing onboard, or doing plenty of time with the local yacht club and getting some solid hours in. Outside of that, if she knows how to tie onto her mooring then we can probably take it motoring in good conditions to practise steering. I hope she knows the traffic rules because I forgot them years ago. You pass on the right? Green and red lights mean something? not my problem

>My advice; take her out and she won’t be able to refuse (because of the implication.)

Let her go out on her own, get knocked unconscious by the boom and end up grounding on some reef.

To add on to this, I use the Navionics app on my phone for charts for day sailing. Windfinder is a good app for weather, along with Ventusky and Windy. It's nice to have multiple sources because different forecasts will have different underlying weather models.

Only other things I think I can add that hasn't already been said is to be sure she has a good anchor and rode and knows how to anchor safely and securely. Also make sure she's paying for all and any additional parts she'll need, so she'll know just how expensive it is to keep a boat in sailable condition. The ocean is not a friendly environment, even if she's only day sailing and sitting at anchor. Definitely needs classes before attempting anything more than daysailing.

you don't need antifouling on the deck or top parts anyway, I'd guess that's just poorly written, maybe by someone other than the owner. If they got the antifouling redone that should mean it was hauled out and at least got a good cleaning and someone looked at the bottom recently so hopefully there's no massive flaws.
Obviously it's not guaranteed though, confirming these kind of things are usually done before you give them money.

You would think that people who want more public transit ridership and denser cities would be more in favor of toll roads and transportation privatization in general. What better way to start appropriately pricing transportation decisions than making people pay for them at the point of use? The actual cost of car ridership is astronomical, if it were appropriately priced on a free market it would be a far less desirable option for most, causing a rise in mass transit demand and a reduction in traffic. Reduced roadway usage would free up a lot of space in cities for development, as non-car uses would have higher economic value.

All limited-access roads should be toll roads. The surveillance is an issue but it's doable now with cameras anyways, and if you really wanted to, by intuition from following cryptography research is that it would be possible to construct a system that collects tolls without revealing travel patterns.

Transit sinkhole projects are a bad thing, even for urbanist types. They all complain about monorails and other gadgetbahns, this isn't a new thing. Markets should help signal where needs cost effective transit the most. And some freeways are needed, it's only fringe zealots who think that a world with zero cars is a good thing. Even transit utopia Japan has plenty, and they do exactly as the OP post suggests: most of the major freeways are toll roads, and expensive ones at that.

What's up with integrated crown races? I had to replace a lower bearing on a headset and the instruction slip from acros depicted a crown race. But there's no crown race that I can see, either in the bike now, or in the bag of shit from acros

My bare fork/steerer tube looks something like this and the internet has plenty of discussion of this phenomenon but it seems like an incredibly terrible idea to me, putting the entire weight of the bike on a <2mm wide faceted steel surface resting directly on bare carbon. Am I missing something here? How are these not assploding all over the place?

Like here take a look at this (not my actual bearing but close enough). That chamfer, as far as I can tell, is the main load bearing surface. It seems to fit, and I guess they know what they're doing but how is this not asking for failure? Because if I wanted to make a booby trap practical joke bike that kills you, this is probably how I'd do it.

>>1885050
solid carbon is strong and the bearing has a pretty good fit along the full circumference of the integrated race. it's basically the same thing as if you had a normal crown race just that the mating surface is at an angle instead of flat. think of how thin the walls are in the fork leg for example and the fork leg is strong enough. just get the proper fitting bearing and preload it correctly.

It’s because there’s not really a casual fixie market. Cyclists either own a fixie they’ve built and customised or don’t like fixies, as a rule. Most geared bike riders also like fucking themselves with a frozen spear of human shit which is uncommon with fixie riders so horses for courses
