to the fools get over it?
no cheers huie
the archives are being absolutely ignored, same quesstions over and over?
for the composite nut jobs:
seek bert burgers threads (firewire payed big money for berts thoughts)
Vacumn forming & Sandwich construction
seek greg loehr's stuff including (the w m d thread)
shaper and listen to what he says
the professer good technical stuff from him
these are the right information
why was this information so detrimental to this page it was WAS REMOVED??
Hi Huie - the archives have loads of good information, but it doesn't always come up when you look. Mis-spelling is fine, who cares, except if the person looking through the archives spells his search words right, then the mis-spelled words don't come up, as Mr Mellor pointed out. (Which is one of the reasons I often take the time to correct the spelling on your posts. Like when you write Greg Lohar, and I change it to Greg Loehr.)
Sometimes its just easier for people to ask again - and thats allowed. Those who don't want to answer again and again don't have to. You post a lot of good information, and build beautiful boards, you have posted good information in the past, as have the others you mention. If someone doesn't want to take the time to learn what has been posted, it is their loss.
If any thread turns into more insults than information, it gets sent to errors and bugs, no favoritism, it doesn't matter who is giving or getting the insults. A thread full of insults is not what "general discussion" is about.
mybe you should have edited the insults? as you have with me in the past
i think the thread has every right to be here i dont have the time to go through and get the right threads as i done for berts link
mybe i will try to night read the honesty thread huck you know who the stirrers are
and mybe not to many read this so i will repeat
and the 11 line bucketing of bruce fowler is something i condem right there you are way out of line
and both his thread and the COIL thread have a right to be here on general discusion
thing you and one or two other self elects were not here when
bert done a good pr job but left sways much more enlightened
general discussion is where the daily fix is instead of sending those that try to stay alive to the sin bin? open it up more
let the bigger makers come on here we are big enough to handle them if they go to far

Herein lies all the answers which you seek.
I have read the Bert Burger thread, several times. Its kinda hard to follow now, with all the missing pictures, but I still did enjoy what I could glean from it.
Bert got as much from this place as he gave. If not more...
I agree with Huie, those 2 threads should be here on the front page but, it's not my website.
Regarding searching for those who don't already know:
1) go to google.com
2) type in the words that you want to search for on swaylocks. you can even type in the name of the person who said what you are looking for.
3) directly after your search terms put a space then put "site:swaylocks.com"
4) click the google search button.
5) the all mighty google will search only on swaylocks for your search terms.
It works HEAPS better than the Swaylocks search function.
Let 'em ride Mr. Mod........let it go.....get over it.
I was trying to be helpful and GhettoRat got under my skin....(took me over 30 min to search for the thread today).....after a few pm's it ends up Ghetto and I have several mutal friends.....we agree on most issues and have several other things in common....we just have a different style.
I've had people call me some nasty stuff via PM. I block the user and hit delete. Done deal.
We all need to take a break and go surfing....
"We all need to take a break and go surfing...."
Actually surfing is WAY better than arguing about some obscure part of surfing over the interwebs.
All of the information is here, contained within these 1's and 0's, getting to it is a different story. If every n00b with a snapped nose, broken fin, sanding problem, or glass job that won't harden meticulously scoured all the available threads and archives pulling out the bits and pieces of information for the right fix, well then the post count, as low as it is, would drop even lower, then there would be less need to check the site, then days turn to weeks to years and the next thing you know, swaylocks is a ghost town haunted by the disinterested enthusiasts that once were, perhaps the site even drops offline as why would anyone want to continue maintaining and paying to host a site that gets no traffic or activity?
Perhaps a better alternative is to simply ignore the question if you don't care to answer. No single poster or group of posters will shape human nature and human nature dictates that people want answers quickly and most think that their question is just different enough to garner a new set of answers. Questions will get asked, over and over again. Threads bitching about those questions will get posted again and again. Perhaps we all need to get over it and understand this site is about the hobby of building surfboards for a very small subsect of society that chooses to do things for themselves rather than mindlessly consume.
"What's wrong honey? Why are you so upset today?" "Because someone asked the same fucking question about how to fix a sand through that's been asked and answered a hundred times. Why don't they fucking learn?"...perspective.
Mods need to stop editing other people's words no matter how helpful the think they are being. I believe moderaters should take it upon themselves to get rid of spam and if they have the inkling they could take it upon themselves to organise the forum or even update the swaylopedia section with viable frequently asked info that would easily be linked over to newb threads. Having a silly amount of mods as this forum does would make the man power to do so....right?
