      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.

    I'd be quite proud to sail one of these anywhere!

    Anybody know what the boat is in the background? Looks like a nice day sailer.

  4. Several thoughts: 1. Fixed. 2. Thank you for proving it is possible to laugh hard enough to cause remnants of a Snickers bar to come out of my nose. Brilliant casting, I think Kathy Bates would be perfect as the MIL. If it was pitched properly the Coen brothers would love the idea. If not I could see Quentin Tarantino doing it as a kind of Reservoir Dogs meets Flipper with a dash of Django Unchained. Thanks a bunch for stealing my idea before I had it. 3. I don't think he can afford that much cement. Thanks for making me clean bourbon off the computer! That shit burns your sinuses! 4. After years of reading this thread, sometimes on the edge of my seat, sometimes bored to tears, can I get on with my life now? Thanks.

    Trailer comes complete with skirt to protect the boat's modesty.

    Looks like she's fallen down drunk a couple of times! Especially to port.

    That's a fast looking boat. Definitely for her age! Also on yachtworld: http://www.yachtworld.com/boats/1976/bill-lee-Santa-Cruz-2543765/Milwaukee/WI/United-States#.VFrxvMmZL4Y
  8. I went right by there on a motorcycle trip this summer. I should've stopped for a look, but it totally slipped my mind. I'm now lamenting lost opportunities! Plus, She can play with my dinghy anytime!

    Interesting that just a fine line following the "underlying" shape to the bow really helps the looks of that boat. Boat design to me seems to follow some of the rules of photography or graphic design, rule of thirds and interaction of organic shapes. IMO such an interesting job or subject because it blends art, science and practicality. However much I love them, I dont think that most af these boats are anywhere approaching practical.

    That's a hell of a lot of spring in that sheer!

    Sorry about the Mac, but that album I linked is far from exhausted. Bolger to the rescue again! I don't know what it is, but it's gotta be by Bolger, right? Hmmm. Be interesting to see what would happen in the even of a Chinese gybe. Or even going about and heading back upwind. I actually like that one - must be the flush foredeck. Or a junk rig with...a furling main? Yes, On-boom furling.
  12. Coolboats to admire

    I like it. Reminds me of the early U-boats Or late U-boats for that matter:

    Apparently not...
  14. Uglyboat Admiration Society Hang Out

    All practicality aside, it's still ugly. Chainsaw off the flybridge, it'd still be ugly. Something about the spring in the cove stripe makes the hulls uglier than they are.

    It looks as though they're perpetually stopping short at an intersection. Or they're anchor is too heavy, and not quite touching bottom. Look at that scope!
