      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.

    totally You give me hope that when it comes time to sell, I will only lose a whole lot of money, not all the money.

    It slides out. Brilliant use of space on a small boat. That is pretty cool. I'd be concerned I was going to wear out my hoses though and sink the boat?
  3. Coolboats to admire

    Nice but there's a wicked kink in the sheer.
  4. Coolboats to admire

    American yard, yup. North shore massachusetts. The boat has a prop coming out the side on starboard I think. Owner is a really nice fellow. The boat is ridiculously small below (makes the triton look luxurious). And the rigging looks pretty light to my eye. But it's so beautiful. Weird euro winches.

    This folkboat is in the yard I'm in. So smitten with this boat. It's laughibly small down below but it's so beautiful.
  6. Coolboats to admire

    the sheer is pretty wonky but awesome boat.
  7. Coolboats to admire

    Damn that is so hot. If I didn't know what I know about how much time even a simple boat takes to get in shape I'd be all up in that. Nobody seems interested in this guy at all, but I think he's pretty badass. The carpentry is pretty wildly crude but I appreciate the pure functionality of it.
  8. Coolboats to admire

    I think I was just reading that Ericson stole the molds of the Alberg 35 and made some themselves. That's pretty wacked. I think Ming Ming I and II are pretty cool.
  9. Coolboats to admire

    Looks like maybe it's a vertical lift system for the outboard? That's kind of a cool idea relative to a kick up well if you could make it work.
  10. Coolboats to admire

    That might be the coolest boat on this thread. If I had a billion dollars I'd buy one.
  11. Defender's Warehouse Sale

    I'm in for a little over $1100. Painful. Nothing close out but just stuff I was going to buy anyway. I do hope this @#$%@#%@ boat floats this year.
  12. Defender's Warehouse Sale

    Can anyone tell if it'd be worth buying this during the sale? I'm not sure if I'm getting anything off or not. http://www.defender.com/product.jsp?path=-1|344|2028693|2207355&id=2426490&cartId=4971449
  13. Coolboats to admire

    But damn! nothing to hold onto going forward, and nothing to keep you falling from windward to leeward.
  14. Coolboats to admire

    Curlew has a 100% no bullshit look to her. No windvane for them? Pretty hardcore.
  15. Taleisen for sale

    Anyone have any idea of a realistic quote on a new build of a 28' wooden Pilot cutter built out of solid teak? Just wondering. I'm guessing it's going to be well over $100k, no? I've read a bunch of their books. It took me a while to realize that it's not all gospel and not everyone agrees with everything they said but I got a lot out of it. The only thing worse than opinionated writers are unappropriated writers. The idea of taking care of yourself and not expecting to be rescued is a really solid one, I think.
