      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. https://foxtrotalpha.jalopnik.com/the-u-s-navy-faces-a-reckoning-after-two-disastrous-an-1820067583 The sequences described leading up to the collisions are all too believable, but proper training and practice/experience would have prevented these issues.
  2. Core materials... lighter than Air!? <;~O .....

    Just stumbled across aerogel insulation, that is some amazing tech, good product for those with a spare autoclave.
  3. Staysails

    Agree, jibtop is high clew.
  4. Finn sailing

    He -= Dave Watt
  5. Staysails

    Has anyone got polars on adding staysails?
  6. Pretty sad, the conclusion that both of these fatal collisions were the result of incompetence, avoidable, must be bitter for the families. Might be better to have 300 well run ships than 400 poorly run ones.
  7. Yeh I thought the boat looked sluggish, that looks like tidal overfalls, maybe off to the side is better. Where was the break? If you are driving through through the lineup thats usually a bad sign.
  8. Finn sailing

    7500 for a 21 year old polyester boat that cost 10k tops new, sure thats fair.
  9. Two sailors and dogs rescued after 5 months

    The pair said they thought about turning back, but the islands of Maui and Lanai didn't have harbors deep enough to accommodate their sailboat. At 50 feet long, the vessel is relatively small, and both islands have harbors that would have accommodated them. Plus, the Big Island -- the southernmost island in state -- has several places to dock. 6.5' draft, hmmm.
  10. Bogan of the week FP - Trimaran

    No delams to my knowledge, very solid glass work.

    Crossed on a smooth night, went fine, decks are a bit slippery though.
  12. Anyone else jumped today?

    If he's so desperate he could sell boat, just another asshole, file charges before he files against you. Then you have leverage.
  13. Anyone else jumped today?

    Sucks, who drives the nicer car?
  14. Pyewacket T-Boned at Campbell Cup?

    That's what I thought, so if Pyewacket bore away inside the circle then she gets the bills.
  15. Rotary cutters
