      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. Sailing needs more folks like Bruce (and Bobbi n Nate). Quick to volunteer, willing to contribute, supportive and smiley. Not only a sailor but also a boater. He cruised and raced and had fun. Great shipmate, great husband and father. Bruce was a great man and will be missed... at man and will be missed.....
  2. Local race this weekend using trackers goto anacortesyachtclub.org N-100 regatta starts Friday evening. People love them racers and fans:)
  3. Looking for the best boat under 30'
  4. Looks like it's gonna be a record year! Go the RAGE!
  5. Do nuthin go sailing, rinse when you can Mine looks great, only make shiny if you want to 6061 is bomber no worries
  6. Greyhound's video is my parents old boat. Was originally AJAX and claim to fame was it beat IMP boat for boat in 1978 downwind ocean race. My father purchased her in 1979 and we competed in the 1982 Vic Maui Race. Afterwards while sipping Mai Tai's at Lahaina YC my Pa ordered the first Klegecell SC-40 also named AJAX. It was a payphone by the men's room back then. AJAX now Muffin has been completely redone and does well in nearly every race she competes in. Too many memories to recount but super fantastic boat, would you expect anything less from the Wizard? SC-40 AJAX now Void Star
  7. Nordic 44 MUCH better sailin boat than Stevens 47, but for cruising The 47 has center cockpit, the one in our town has heat duct. Sailed many ocean miles on both very different. The crew at our local charter company always chose the Hlas 44 for our summer staff party. All 3 terrific boats but again very different, depends what you want and also as BP mentioned some 30yrs old or so depends how well maintained. I also like Kotuku but seems much racier than the other 3, nonetheless designed to cruise well too:) Cool video of wipeout if Alex will post....
  8. My Pa had a Sc-40 battled Pusillanimous (PUSI) for years now Free Bird and String Theory here in the PNW. Never a bad day. Fun to sail and you will have a ball. What is her name?
  9. On its way to Canada, I wonder why????
  10. I know I'm gonna sound like an old timer here but I do remember the days when after finishing you had to pass through a safety inspection. In any case any skipper that knowingly violates the rules is not worth sailing with. If you know you are sailing on a boat that is cheating whether it's sails or running lights or whatever, get a life, sail with somebody that values yours.....
  11. I have always wondered about this myself. I can see if there are blisters there is water intrusion but if no blisters then assuming no cracks or poorly fitted through hulls and such does gelcoat really allow water to absorb into it? I can see the whole point of dry sailing to keep slime from growing on the bottom but I don't understand how gel coat absorbs water.
  12. Stunning how few mariners in our area are unaware that the WSF ferries are not a privileged class. Nearly every person I have spoken to regarding this video assumed the ferry had right of way as a "commercial vessel" even pals of mine that carry USCG licenses...
  13. Racer meeting at the club next Monday 21st 1800 hrs. Bring your ideas. Likely planning on keepin what's workin and bringing back the singlehanded race and 4 score and 10 division. Girts Rekevics Memorial Foulweather Race scheduled for Feb 25th, Shaw Island winter Classic Feb 18th. I know where a good Sc-27 is for sale if you know anyone lookin:)
  14. What does anyone wanna know? Probably not as good of boat as an Express 37 that recently sold locally for 50k, you couldn't buy a full set of sails, and fix the deck for 50k, let alone get a decent engine watcha gonna do, BTW headroom is like 5' 10". I know she still just looks So cool....
  15. Now showing windy Sunday too, sending Mr. Hedrick an email for forecast...
