      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.

    Twin outboards for that sportfisher look? Is that a Florida thing? Nice boat but how is raising the dink on the davits work? https://tampa.craigslist.org/hdo/boa/d/shoal-draft-trailerable/6475524164.html

    Or Maybe the Chinese salvors saw a giant Idahoan Mashed Potato Monster with Marchino cherry pit eyes inside Mimsy, hence the nets...

    Hey, read your newsclip and another on BC sharks http://www.bowenislandundercurrent.com/news/nothing-to-worry-about-here-just-a-shark-nursery-off-vancouver-s-coast-1.23177357 I will be signing up for 2019, the full race. A smallll chance for this year but likely will just take the Young 6m on my own adventure up the coast this summer when I get the chance. I did a lot of mods to the boat including the ability to dump half or all the water ballast as required, for rowing and light air. Colin Angus has the rowing setup for sale on his website if you are looking. https://angusrowboats.com/collections/kits/products/sliding-seat-rigger-hardware-kit-with-carbon-fibre-seat He also has wooden oar plans and kits if you want to make them or need longer ones.https://angusrowboats.com/pages/wooden-oars Duckworks have the oarlocks, fast delivery too.

  5. R2AK 2018

    R2AK Crew wanted, posted on the r2ak fb and Matheau's fb. Wants a teammate willing to buy his sexy new RAID boat so he will not have to ship it back. They are making 8 of them and it would be the first in NA. Weight is 150kg with a fg, carbon and foam hull. It has some great features, including an impressive cockpit/dodger/tent you can sit in the cockpit under. The main has no boom. The mast is short at 7m, carrying 12m of flat top and an 11m gennaker. Typo on the page lists a 10m main or 12 is the option perhaps. Just the thing for the late June wind of the r2ak. The list is 25k euro inc French VAT of 20% Who woldn't want a teammate with that kind of worldclass rowing experience... http://rowandsail.liteboat.fr/boats/litexp/ 10 knots in 12kn wind here. See the tent here.

    Agree, but 8 in light air was a mild mock... There is a Dibly design on that website that was nice too and some outboard motors for 100 to 150 bucks... if I can get 500 friends together to buy one each

    I found a similar Gofundme fundraiser to the thread's couple. It appears to be a "Transfinancial" community problem...I had to look that up https://www.gofundme.com/cz742k-transfinancial " I am in my 20s, ambitious and intelligent. but most importantly I'm trans-financial.WHAT IS THAT YOU ASKED yourself? well I was supposed to be born into a billionaire family like Bill gate's children, Steve jobs, like all the wealthy dorks children .Hence, i was born into a lower middle class family. that lives and balls from.paychecks to paychecks.my transitional issue has made it harder for me to keep up with my bills, tuition fees and savings...I often dream at night about sailing with my billionaire family on a billion dollar yatch all around the world. ( but often time I wake up to the sad reality of life and the sound of my roommate trying to sneak some food from my fridge to his his room.).so in reality i am just a millionaire/billionaire child stuck in this paychecks to paychecks body that doesnt belong to me,therefore I find myself spending more than I actually have.
