      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.

    It is a circus. First Dan Enos is onboard, then two days later bolts for Bama. Several names mentioned and then not. Harbaugh is not doing himself any favors.

    Not his top recruit, and not unexpected. Losing little brother to OSU probably stings a bit more. As for Harbaugh himself, 2018 will be key. 8-5 doesn't cut it.

    You guys are way overthinking this. I have a 20 foot center console that works pretty well for me. It has done race committee, served as a dive platform and lake runabout, not hard to get on and off the trailer, and pretty damn hard to hurt. Just hose it down, and it's happy. It takes chop and swells pretty well, None of the floating piano or things that can't fit in a slip or that you are afraid to actually use.

    It was cold enough yesterday (-4F) that my garage door opener started working erratically. Had to pull the beverages in from the garage. Heat wave on Monday, 37.

    What did we ever do to Pappy Sol?.
  7. Fucking Burrrrrrrrrr Winter 2017-2018

    Not that long if this front stays camped over top. I was talking about inland lakes and Lake St Clair, which freeze much earlier. Those shanties aren’t floating. I trust my eyes more than whatever website you are looking at.

    With the last week temps, shanties are out in force on the small lakes around here. Hard water sailing time.

    More like dildo, dildoe. Good riddance to that inbred peckerwood, but it would have been fun watching him try to spin the ass raping the Gators took this year.
  10. Jesus, what a train wreck. Thanks, Davey. This all boils down to whether you want a design competition like the America's Cup, or a pure sailing one. Certainly cost and time are barriers with the former, but with match boats you also get some barriers, especially with vintage boats like 8s. People just don't seem to care about CC much anymore, how do you rekindle interest?.
  11. YRALIS PHRF Committee Purge

    I've served on a PHRF review board for several years. No free drinks, shrimp platters or cool shirts. I have been called names a few times, though. Does that count?.

    Ha. She is in Detroit, along with two others these days, although I don't sail the boat anymore. Has a gray metallic paint job this year. Odd seeing three of them out for Saturday races,.

    In another month those nipples will be poking the row in front of them.

    Or the Cheese Heads. And I was a Packer fan growing up. Going behind the Cheese Curtain is a strange experience. :-)
