      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. What's the interior like compared to kick? https://yachthub.com/list/yachts-for-sale/used/sail-monohulls/elliott-1050/214732
  2. If that's the case, it could push Kick to the top of my shopping list.
  3. There are many here who already think LB is already the forums Obstetrician.
  4. Nice graphic and fat head The keel will make a huge difference probably
  5. F1 2018...

    I love the sound of F1 in the morning Just making breakfast at 8am and I hear an F1 engine being reved. I love living so close to the track

    Looks like more corner cutting. Given that the XZ will force the other boats back up to Scally, it may turn out a good move or they will sail so much slower that when the leaders head up, Scally will have lost even more ground... Whilst fleet are making better speed and have a higher VMG (to where?), Scally's VMG to where they will close in on the XZ up north might be another Libby master stroke. The fleet might be playing follow the leader with the front runners going for speed to try to shake off the others especially when they are all in AIS range.

    I wonder what is at 401 St Kilda rd? The tracker hire company?

    Having their surnames on their back isn't going to make them faster.

    Is Scally the only boat where the names on the jackets are their first or nicknames? I much more prefer that informal naming than the surnames used on the other boats. It's another reason why I follow them closely.

    My cousin just returned from Tassie this morning on the ferry and said it was a rough crossing, so much so that the alarm on his Harley went crazy and flattened the battery. Had to put it in a van to the dealer to fit a new battery as he could not even roll start it on the off ramp.

    wasn't the start for Morning Star delayed 1 day? Then all others were probably planned to be delayed as well.
  13. Looked like the best prepared Y11 on the market. I'm glad it was in NZ and not Aus otherwise I'd be very disappointed.

    When you look at it here, "sexy" is not a word I'd use, unless you like them chunky
