      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.

  1. Banque Populaire IX

    How does BPIX get 33% more upwind sail area out of 1m taller mast? I think Gitana has a bunch of ultime class-illegal hydraulics. That might be the weight difference. Either way, the SA/D differential is pretty notable.
  2. underwater swordfight - what is it?

    Different boats is too much of a gimmick. Doesn't seem like a serious race. The problem is the ocean racing boats are 60ft monohulls, making this race clearly secondary to the IMOCA races. Should have picked something different like trimarans.
  3. Wahine 26

    The Homer
  4. Wahine 26

    Electric Windlass on a 26' boat. WTF
  5. Andrews 80 Donnybrook

    What's it rate? Donnybrook was 1.650 IRC at 2016 Carribean 600.
  6. Blue water performance cruiser - do they exist?

    Does not seem to be class legal and has a "two piece" mast. They would be lucky to get $50k imo.
  7. Blue water performance cruiser - do they exist?

    Didn't you put a 15ft sprit on the Olson 40?
  8. new trimaran under 20

    Looks awesome! Two years of full time work?
  9. Wahine 26

    $192k for a 26ft boat. http://sailingmagazine.net/article-1829-wahine-lifestyle.html
  10. SCIENCE!

    Big thanks to Ajbram, Monsoon, and all the other scientists trying to save the planet.
  11. strict class

    +1 No one is going to buy this besides NYYC. No resale value (like most "race" boats) means it won't get a one design fleet anywhere besides NYYC. Should have bought 20 J/111s and started a series with no pros and new sails once a year. Sail contract to be bid out yearly.
  12. Corsair Pulse 600

    A trap or 2 adds a lot of RM.
  13. Irma

    Here's some looting:
  14. SCIENCE!

    One side has evidence based, peer reviewed science. 97% of climate scientists and every country except Nicaragua, Syria and Trump are on this side. One side likes to play dumb and talk about water vapor.
  15. SCIENCE!

    Sorry you don't understand. Please don't procreate. Thanks.
