      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. Hello, I read you owned the Whiting 1/4 tonner Afternoon Delight. Do you maybe have a picture of the boat? I am very interested. Also check my 1/4 ton Facebook-page! Regards, Hylke Steensma

      I also sailed on a Peterson 1/4 'Loose Change' built by Poseidon yachts. But can't post a pic ( file too large )

      Thanks for the picture of Afternoon Delight. Loose Change does ring a bell somewhere... I met a guy via Facebook who is refitting a Pet 25 1/4 tonner. Could you mail the pic to hylke_steensma@yahoo.com? Thanks!

      1/4 ton rules forever ;-)

      A friend of mine also owns a pet1/4 later model called rat race. Use to be Dave ullmans boat then called blitz. Daggerboard version of star eyed Stella which I think was tom blackallers boat which sits on a trailer at San Diego yacht club rotting away.


  2. Hello, I read

    course i was always fond of tequilla sunrise (another carl boat) for purely personal reasons :)

    Did you sail TEQUILA SUNRISE? Some time ago I had email contact with Jack van Heeckeren who sailed her at the 1976 1/4 ton Worlds. And also with a sailmaker, can't reach his name now....

    I heard TEQUILA SUNRISE is in bad shape in the US somewhere...

    Hope hearing from you!

  3. Wow looking good Bob! Looking forward to sailing pics! 1/4 ton rules forever ;-)
  4. Dick Carter design boats

    HELZAPOPPIN, the prototype of the Dingbat 25 1/4 tonner. She was in 1977 or 1978 bought by Dutch sailor Hay Winters who raced her some years before selling her to Anneke van Leeuwen who sailed her with an all-female crew before buying the Extension 1/4 tonner BALLETENT to sail the 1984 Quarter Ton Worlds in Nieuwpoort, Belgium. The Dingbat should be in the Netherlands somewhere. Hope to see her at the 2018 Dutch Quarter Ton Cup! More 1/4 ton fun on www.facebook.com/kwarttonzeilers ;-)
  5. This is the Peterson 1/4 tonner 'Rio de Sur' that finished 16th at the 1976 Worlds in Corpus Christi. The Japanese crew sold her after the event rather than shipping her home.... I personally don't think they brought her from Japan for the regatta... Think they bought her in the US but I am not sure... The skipper in Corpus Christi was a mister Niwa... Anyone?
  6. Hello SailBlueH2O: Do you maybe have pics of the 1/4 Ton Mid Winters you sailed in 1972?
  7. Great Bob, keep us posted!!!!! For Facebookers who dig 1/4 ton fun, please also check www.facebook.com/kwarttonzeilers ;-)
  8. US team @ 1979 Quarter Ton Worlds

    This is how 'Parade' is now. She is for sale in the Netherlands! Send an email to info@kwarttonzeilers.nl for more info. Lots of info about the 1/4 ton boats can be found on www.facebook.com/kwarttonzeilers 1/4 ton rules forever ;-)
  9. US team @ 1979 Quarter Ton Worlds

    'Parade' (US-25) in San Remo at the 1979 Quarter Ton Worlds. Thanks for the picture Axel Mohnhaupt!
  10. US team @ 1979 Quarter Ton Worlds

    Check www.facebook.com/kwarttonzeilers, lots and lots and lots of pictures ;-) Did you or do you sail 1/4 ton boats yourself DUBLIN-13?
  11. US team @ 1979 Quarter Ton Worlds

    UPDATE 27/10: Spoke to the designer Axel Mohnhaupt yesterday. He told me that Roy Cundiff sailed the boat at the 1979 Worlds. I spoke to Roy once about his win at the 1978 Worlds in Japan where he skipperd the Yamaha 24 1/4 tonner 'Magician V'. According to Roy 'Parade' was a fine boat although somewhat conservative with a fixed, ballasted keel. Very fast downwind. A protest in one race and poor navigation put the team out of the running...
  12. In 1979 a US team sailed the Quarter Ton Worlds in San Remo with a Mohnhaupt-Rode design called PARADE. The boat is sailing in the Netherlands since 2000. I would like to know more about the history. G-1191 on the picture could be PARADE.... I am not sure... Anyone here who knows more? More info about the boat can be found on www.histoiredeshalfs.com/Quarter%20Tonner/Q%20The%20Itch.htm More info about 1/4 ton boats (lots of pictures!) can be found on www.facebook.com/kwarttonzeilers
  13. Older well known IOR Boats

    Great thread! There is a 1/4 ton revival going on in the Netherlands indeed. We have hundreds of them over here, most of them production boats like the Ecume de Mer, Drifter 25, Eygthene 24, GK24 and of course Waarschip 1/4 ton. Last year we organized the Dutch Quarter Ton Cup during the Lenco regatta at Lake IJsselmeer. This year it was a small competition of four events. For our Facebook page www.facebook.com/kwarttonzeilers (can't change the name since we have to many likes ;-) I am looking for info and pics every now and then. Already found a lot! The website www.histoiredeshalfs.com is also great! If you have info, please bring it on ;-) Regards, Hylke (info@kwarttonzeilers.nl) Dutch 1/4 ton fleet www.kwarttonzeilers.nl (in Dutch...)
