      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.

  2. Shaw 650 Keel wobble

    At least one of the Shaws over here had the same issue. Have you profiled the foil to check for symmetry? What is the trailing edge shape on the foil, squared off or tapered? May also be worth checking alignment of the bulb to the foil, a slight offset will cause a twisting action.
  3. Mast Magic 25

    C-Tech, CST, Applied Composites, Southern Spars would all have something similar and probably modernised to the original Magic spec. They all produce rigs for similar sized sports boats

  5. Syd-Hobart Yachts, Where are they Now?

    Maggies Farm is on the Swan River at Perth Flying Squadron.Golden Eagle was at RFBYC a few years back but the owner bought a new toy so not sure where it is now. Fremantle Doctor is now called Shady Doctor and is based in Geraldton these days. Kings Cross is in Fremantle down in the RPYC annexe, I don't think it's had a cent spent on it in the last decade and is pretty run down.
  6. Syd-Hobart Yachts, Where are they Now?

    The Farr 40's Prime Factor & True Blue are still sailing in WA.True Blue is limited to river sailing with no hinge in the rig and a series of bridges in the way. Prime Factor does a bit of offshore racing. The Davidson 50 Finistere is also in WA and races the longer offshore races but has a heap of creature comforts like leather lounges now. There is also one of the Sagacious's over in WA

  12. Melbourne Big Boat Fleet

    John Corby's website has a profile sketch and hull renderings of the new Flirt and a photo of the deck mould being constructed.

    It depends on what day you talk to him as to what he sails on in Sydney. Ive heard him say he has been sailing on Loki and one of his crew told me he had been sailing on Vanguard. Was he kicked off one and managed to get a ride on the other??? He may be able to get the speed of an Inglis 47 out of the new boat. They have only managed to get the 47 to perform like a 40 since they've had it.
