      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. Olson 30 on FB

    How well does an Olson 30 go with no rail meat?
  2. US Sailing Olympic Submission for 2024

    They don't think two Olympic athletes can handle a spin and traps? Probably just wanted a JAM class to appeal to people that know nothings about sailing.
  3. Banque Populaire IX

    They had 1 reef in main + jib in 40--45knots wind. No one on deck. Seems aggressive for a delivery.
  4. New imoca boats

    Did they eliminate the tiller?
  5. I would definitely prefer either of these to a Catalina 30 for ocean crossing. Catalina 30 is a good option if you are island hopping.
  6. Sailing around the world (Galleon replica)

    Lots of tumblehome...
  7. Sundeer 60 vs Catana 471

    Seems like it has all the drawbacks of a cat while managing to have the accomodation of 40fter in a 60ft hull. I would want at least 3 cabins for a family of 4. The ugly hard dodger seems like a pretty good feature for world cruising.
  8. What a money pit!

    Get yourself a 4ksb with white sails. Beer is the major expense.
  9. V70 -> V65 -> V????? What should come next

    If the boats are not significantly faster than IMOCA 60s then the race will be less and less important with each edition. A 60ft OD trimaran could be cheaper and faster than an IMOCA 60 with canting keel, dali foils, deck spreaders, etc... Any kinds of box rule or development class would be cool. Just doesn't seem like the money is there.
  10. Olson 40 For Single Handed Blue Water Sailing

    A Class 40 with water balast would be a lot better.
  11. Hallberg Rassy Launched a new 57 Footer

    Doesn't look like a hull that would normally have dual rudders.
  12. Anyone know this cat?

    Either a Neel salesman or non-sailor.
  13. My Next Boat

    Catalina 30 seems like a lot of boat for a guy that wants minimal systems, an outboard, and to sleep on the boat once a year. Great boats for the money though. I think you could single hand it since they all seem to have roller furling headsails and halyards to the cockpit. Some have "tall rigs".
  14. Paul, Did you ever post drawings of the "Extreme weather cruiser" version? You know CA loves a good pilothouse.
  15. Sydney to Hobart 2017

    Anywhere to watch the start replay? Youtube says the PGA European tour has claimed copyright violation. WTF
