TinyPic is Shutting Down

This is really going to hurt. TinyPic is shutting down Sept. 9th. Images are already not viewable on 3rd party sites, but if you have kept track of your images, you can still download them.

I am currently using Postimages for my forum images.

Anyone else have similar issues? Jeff Click on the Quick Links (Upper Left), then click on Active Topics. https://i.p...

Re: Lubrication point on axle?

The fitting that you are referring to is the brake bleeder valve. The only lube points on the axle/hubs are the wheel bearings.

Re: any mods / suggestions for reducing heel in a 26x?

Let the Admiral handle the mainsail sheet. Make sure it is uncleated and show her how to let it out to reduce power and heel and how to pull it in to increase power. After awhile, when they feel and understand what is happening, they will become more comfortable. Worked on our boat.
