      Abbreviated rules   07/28/2017

      Underdawg did an excellent job of explaining the rules.  Here's the simplified version: Don't insinuate Pedo.  Warning and or timeout for a first offense.  PermaFlick for any subsequent offenses Don't out members.  See above for penalties.  Caveat:  if you have ever used your own real name or personal information here on the forums since, like, ever - it doesn't count and you are fair game. If you see spam posts, report it to the mods.  We do not hang out in every thread 24/7 If you see any of the above, report it to the mods by hitting the Report button in the offending post.   We do not take action for foul language, off-subject content, or abusive behavior unless it escalates to persistent stalking.  There may be times that we might warn someone or flick someone for something particularly egregious.  There is no standard, we will know it when we see it.  If you continually report things that do not fall into rules #1 or 2 above, you may very well get a timeout yourself for annoying the Mods with repeated whining.  Use your best judgement. Warnings, timeouts, suspensions and flicks are arbitrary and capricious.  Deal with it.  Welcome to anarchy.   If you are a newbie, there are unwritten rules to adhere to.  They will be explained to you soon enough.

  2. Just Another High School Fistfight

    It's all about attention whoring. Hypocrisy be damned.
  3. I find it odd that a boat like this can come into a fair degree of trouble without it making the news. Great work CSAnarchy
  4. Feel Good Environmentalism downside.

    Absolute? Is that the 99.9% pure?
  5. Sarah Huckabee Sanders

    The gender reassignment seems to have worked well. Looks like it's going to take a few more quarts of testosterone to really kick in.
  6. Diesel-proof patch

    Mine too, but I'm looking for welder, just have to empty it, unbolt everything, then get it out of the boat - no problem, gulp. Greg
  7. Flathead Lake Fresh H20

    The expression I heard was "big enough to stand flatfooted and ass rape a turkey" WL
  8. What is the exact moment when a good guy with a gun crosses the line and becomes a 'vigilante executioner'? Is it the same definition as a mass shooting. The first 3 bad guys down are the act of a good guy but the 4th one is a step to far? Come on, admit it. All you gun guys have fantasys about cooling a few dudes who deserved it with your rod.
  9. Flathead Lake Fresh H20

    And those little friggin biting black flies, and let's not even talk about deer flies.
  10. C&C 36...will it float?

    Looking at buying a C&C 36 for a family cruiser...anyone owned? Looks like it's got the C&C smile but not too worried. Original Barient winches, nice but older sail inventory: .6oz, .75oz, 1.5oz, #3, 2x Genoas. Wiring is original which is a little bit scary. Wondering about sailing characteristics, suggested repairs/upgrades, offshore comfort, someone talk me out of it.
  11. Diesel-proof patch

    My aluminum fuel tank has sprung a leak - probably just old and corroded. I have the option to replace, but it’s spendy and the vendor is not returning calls. Can I patch with epoxy/glass or will diesel rot the epoxy?
  12. New Hinckley 53

    It's got the rowaway factor of a fat mallard.
  13. Alien Invasion Movies

  14. Unarmed kid shot dead by police in his own backyard

    It's the government. Somebody's government. We're going to wake up some day to a really jerky President Trump Mk II, as the body snatchers take over all the walking dead without functioning brains.
  15. Sarah Huckabee Sanders

    I prefer to focus on job performance instead of looks, and I would be remiss if I did not point out what a fine job Granny Clampett is doing as AG.
  16. Maryland jr 2nd amendment fans acting out

    Gun was legally owned by the shooter’s father. How the boy got the gun has not been released as of now. Girls parents announced at 8:PM that she is brain dead and will come off life support this evening. Oldest of 9 children. Wounded boy home from the hospital in good condition. Fund raisers are online for both at youcaring. PM me for the link if so motivated.
  17. Oracle Team USA

    You're too dimwitted to see it stamped on your forehead
  18. My favorite boat repair tools.

    Late to this thread. I have two very similar, the other one is on the boat. Wonderful tools.
  19. Unarmed kid shot dead by police in his own backyard

    It's a Russian hack. Or clean fucked something up.
  20. Replacing a piece of toe rail

    Check with Crest Aluminum for the 34+ extrusion, They're one step up the chain from South Shore yachts (who in recent years have been difficult to work with in my experience....but I've never dealt with Crest)
  21. PHRF Exclusion practice

    Sorry about that. Who defines the ballast requirements? We updated our PHRF bylaws last year to only rate monohull keelboats. However, that includes sportboats, Etchells, etc. Viper 640s, Etchells, J/70s, J/29s, J/92s, and J/88s are good challengers for each other on our weekend open-lake island/government mark courses. I guess I think sportboats are monohull keelboats, and not dinghies or multihulls.
  22. PHRF Exclusion practice

    Nope, it’s the same here. NorCal PHRF rates boats that meet their definition. They don’t rate multis, sporties or dinghies. I sail dinghies and once was on the BAMA board. This is my 3rd? boat rated by PHRF of NorCal. OAs are everywhere, and many will run sportie races.
  23. VOR Leg 7 Auckland to Itajai

    Japanese TV wins hands down. This is a tame one. Search on YouTube.

  25. Still better than your chances of having a rational thought.
