      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. Whats the safety, navigation and pollution parts entail? You have to have local charts, tide tables, coast pilot, lights, horn, etc. HR- do you have charts of the area?
  2. F*** Sea Tow, they will let you sink if you don't give them a credit card. Now for my all-time favorite beauty..
  3. That is a fascinating video. Some of the comments by a retired USN Captain are a good read.
  4. I don' t think HR's mental condition is anything mysterious. Every drunken redneck I've ever known has acted somewhat like he does. The key is that he is a drunk; sober rednecks typically don't act like this (I know a thing or two about rednecks having lived in either Florida and Texas all my life). Most of them have a Christian world view and a strong sense of morality (at least in the South). Although I am a white collar professional with an education, I have more respect for the redneck class than for any other group (the sober ones of course). When the government eventually screws us completely, the food supply chain is gone, and armored tanks are rolling through our neighborhoods, I'll be hanging out with the "rednecks"- not the pussified yuppie types. People such as most serious sailors, who know how to survive at sea, would be a close second. Now, in my next post, I will try to come up with some more choice sweeping generalizations and paranoid conspiracy scenarios....the site is already facing one lawsuit. Your armchair mental diagnosis is flirting with lible. Knock it off before hot rod end up with another legal settlement Just because you have 575 posts on here doesn't mean in the real world you are worthy enough to be allowed to lick my nutsack. Please see the part of my post that deals with "pussified yuppie types".

  6. His first post, complete with image was most artful: Some of my work is artful, but art is destined to be processed by man subjectively. You may not like everything I post.
  7. Sacre Bleu! How did you get a photo of Grandmother LeDouche? Lol, we both seem to be fans of self deprecating humor. I've been doing crunches, give me a few weeks.
  8. Ok dudes, I can tell that Guy has a place of certain respect on the board-I am sure he is an interesting cat. I just couldn't tell by his facetious posting style if he was actually mucking about on FH or joking about it. No disrespect intended there. Back at you
  9. I am confused about who this dude "Guy" is. Is he joking around or is he really helping on board FH?
  10. Good to know... There you have it. SA, like Top Gear, is an educational show.... Learn something new everyday, if you're up to it! I am mystified how anyone on this board could not know the 3 most basic (and only) hailing terms for a distressed vessel at sea. Since its obvious some of you were clueless about this most basic tenet of nautical knowledge, what was your previous plan for calling for help over VHF? "Hep me hep me pweeze I need a ambwerlance"..??? Would you know how to broadcast your position properly?
  11. Maybe an attorney on here could draft a simple liability waiver for HR to sign before helping out?
  12. It's not my work. I lifted it from NASIOC OFF-TOPIC, home to some of the best PhotoChoppers in existence. They be followin' the adventures of Family Rod. Ha ha, I'm a big NASIOC OT fan. I rarely post there though-those guys are douche nozzles.
  13. So I guess since the arrival of "dockrat" this morning everyone is satisfied that this is, indeed, "Viking"?
  14. I would like to join this palaver, but first an offering:
