      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. C&C 34 for PHRF and short handed racing

    damcoyote (not sure why I can't quote posts...), Thanks for the info. I knew the 33-2 was a better boat than the 33-1, but wasn't entirely sure why. My 25-2 is also a Rob Ball design and I like it a lot, but it is too small for my family. Unfortunately the 33-2s I have seen are also well above Alex W's budget (and mine).
  2. C&C 34 for PHRF and short handed racing

    Damcoyote, How does the C&C 33 compare to the C&C 35s and other similar-sized boats? Are you talking about the Mk I or the MK II? There is a nice C&C 33 MK I for sale near Seattle right now.
  3. best tv series... possibly ever?

    I will throw in my vote for 'That Mitchell and Webb Look' (BBC comedy) as one of the all-time funniest comedy series. http://youtu.be/THNPmhBl-8I http://youtu.be/5-nh7xOjkSs (How do we parse Youtube links so the video will show up, and not just the link?)
  4. Mocking Ads on Craigslist

    Here is Rimas' next boat: http://vancouver.craigslist.ca/van/boa/4736736695.html
  5. Mocking Ads on Craigslist

    This is close: http://vancouver.craigslist.ca/van/boa/4654293163.html And there is this. It's been around a while for sure. http://seattle.craigslist.org/kit/boa/4672253602.html The owner of that boat has spent perhaps 2-3 times the asking price of that boat in dock fees in the 3 years it has been listed on CL. On a related note, earlier this year there was a nice and very clean Gary Mull-designed US 25 (or 22?) located a few slips down from this boat for sale for the same price of $1500. Night and day difference between the two.
  6. Broken Hip Joint Anarchy

    I am so sorry to hear how this turned out for you GW. I hope the replacement will work for you (it should). My mom (65 yrs) got her hip replaced the same week you had your original surgery. They had her up and walking a few hours later, and 3 days later she was at home. The surgery and muscle pain is there of course, and that dissipates over time, but the bone/joint pain that had plagued her for many years was immediately gone. She had the newer Anterior path replacement which does not require cutting any muscles the way the Posterior replacement path did. Now she has very few restrictions on activities and will be able to water ski again next week. Best of luck to you! Hopefully you will be able to get out on your boat before our summer ends...
  7. Yeah, well, it's a guy, so...
  8. Mocking Ads on Craigslist

    That one definitely looks better in the pics. I think it was last registered in 2007.
