      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.

    Not a mock...Bob Perry prints for collectors. Boat Blue print from Boat Builder Robert Perry - boats - by owner - marine sale

    Two pics. Is that Flea Shampoo in the 2nd pic?
  4. Dropping my Cal 20 keel

    Mine is 27 but you can get 29 in the same stick size, in boats from Mac 26's and other smaller cruisers that used the same pole. Dyer still lists my mast as a DM6. https://www.dwyermast.com/families.asp?cat1ID=20&cat1Name=Masts
  5. Dropping my Cal 20 keel

    There was a beater C20 in False Kreek almost free and a 23' boat in the Free Section a couple days back. There is one abandoned boat in the Blind Channel. It may have been removed if it dragged. There was a SJ24 and an old thunderbird rig a while back. Cheers
  6. Two sailors and dogs rescued after 5 months

    I think we could find them a 500 dollar SJ24 up here for them to challenge some great-great records... after they do a Thelma and Louise road trip with a tracker across the US. Anyone with a beater to give them in NY, an old Crown Vic? Lots to admire or laff about her deviance and ongoing reality show, as only SA can provide. Crashing her boat in the channel with that outboard setup would finish most new sailors. Claim denied and paying the salver some money back some money was a plus mark.
  7. Dropping my Cal 20 keel

    There have been a couple free boats on CL the past month if you are looking for a taller rig. Good luck with the keel. SJB did a really nice finish on his last hull. That would really help for your light air race days like Round Bowen or R2AK.
  8. Westsail 32 sailboat-is it ok for Great lakes?

    I have a Legend and it would be fine for the GL. The 37 or 37.5 would be on my list for affordable, fast family cruiser. There is a well kept 336 across from me. They both have a lot of space for the size. There are a few to choose from and you get the stern access. Sails well enough for cruising but not racing. Plus 1 for the other comments. You have to like it when you row away.

    there's 3, that means you can have a race... downhill in the snow...
  10. Sailing around the world in a San Juan 24

    Rimas next leg into the Devils Triangle, with the recent shark attacks, seems suicidal. What with the murderous fisherman, commercial great circle traffic, US destroyers, NK missile threats and instant Idahoan Force 11 storms, it will be his most difficult drift yet. Curious how King Ineptune feels about copycat drifters like the Jen and Navigatrix...

  13. Two sailors and dogs rescued after 5 months

    Hell, they can't even get aboard without needing a rescue. Ish, was that you?? Just kidding... http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/british-columbia/oak-bay-water-rescue-1.4399263 Blame that Keep Turning Left guy's videos... illererate kanuckistanis from the far Commonwealth visually seduced into the adventure...he makes it look easy Keep Turning Left
  14. The Zombie Fleet

    I think that is the first time anyone has noticed a boat they had in the Zombie thread. My condolences. Is that enough impetus to buy her again?
