      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. I have nightmares of bfloyd discovering the period between swells...
  2. I guess if there is one protest, they cancel the entire regatta??? " I give this club no stars but had to choose a star to complete this post. I am an avid fisher who has fished many tournaments in the last 7 years. Unfortunately, myself and over 100+ anglers decided to compete in yesterday's "45th Annual Bottom Fishing Tournament Charity Benefit" that was hosted by the Southwestern Yacht Club. Prior to the event we were informed in the rules and regulations written by the Southwestern Yacht Club that there would be many individual cash awards for different categories. Imagine the participants shock and disappointment to be told by the director of Southwestern Yacht Club , during the events banquet,that the two boats that reportedly weighed in the heaviest fish had caught several illegal fish. Because of this the director explained that the Southwestern Yacht Club would be terminating the entire competition instead of disqualifying these two boats. What this meant was that all the men,women and juniors (kids under 16 years of age) that paid their entry fees, fished hard all day and spent lots of money on fuel,would no longer be receiving their earned awards because two boats did not follow the U.S. Fish & Game regulations. In my view the Southwestern Yacht Club could have resolved this problem easily by just disqualifying the two boats. My friends and I will never fish another tournament hosted by this club.

  7. I was pulling your leg a bit...If you are planning to go outside then don't worry about ballast. Reading more about your boat it seems she likes to be sailed flat. It would be more important to have a really good bottom and light air sails so you can sail instead of rowing at 2kn max. Rowing a beamy sailboat is a bastardized setup, staying as far forward in the cockpit as you can and still clearing the gunwales. The oars will likely not cross properly in front of you as you row, so technique is a compromise. I can't offer any proper advice for your setup other than to say try it out a few times beforehand. You will need a setup that fits both of you, so the foot brace will need to slide significantly. I had a fixed thwart in 2016 with 10 ft oars, the locks about 8 inches behind the back edge of the thwart and the oarlocks on top of the cockpit coaming, to clear the gunwale enough to place the oar deep enough in the water. I improved this with 12ft oars, a sliding seat, a better removable foot rest with straps and removed the coaming detail. The oarlocks are still too far out and the oar handles are more than a foot apart at the end of the stroke. I used a regular paddle sometimes, on the leeward side, in light wind, to use different muscles for a while. You could watch the r2ak video of top rowers like Colin Angus, Mathieu Bonnier or esp. Nate Rooks in the whaler, to pick up some technique ideas, they make it look easy to do. Cheers
