      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. Your Most Inspirational Sailing Videos

    Videos look fun, but I would only last an hour and be worn out. This is much more my speed and relaxing.
  2. Craigslist Finds

    Rare fun little boat. Mac Dinghy, I have two but would buy it if it were closer because I have 3 young women sailers. http://portland.craigslist.org/mlt/boa/5356371824.html
  3. What's the hardest dinghy you've sailed?

    My Mac Dinghy is tough. It is very tender. With me at 165lbs I can't sit on the rail unless there is a fair amount of wind and it is easy to get caught up there and tip over the wrong way. I have to squat in the boat in low wind to be able to move fast enough with shifts. With two on board it's not too bad. I suspect it is like the "Jester dinghy. Most frightening 3 knots you'll ever experience."
