      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.

  5. Yesterday, I saw the documentary of Coyote, the film about Mike Plant. The film is really, really good. I've emailed Mr. Clean my review of the film. The film director suggested that people join their email list to receive upcoming film dates, possibly in their area. This is the link to the Coyote Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/coyotemovie Here is a video interview of Thomas Simmons the director filmed at the theater.
  6. For those who missed it, here is a link to Mr. Clean's FP post on Mike Plant. http://sailinganarchy.com/2017/10/03/saltwater-cowboy/
  7. Alright Skates, here is another screening. Sunday, October 22 at 7:30 pm. RE: Mr. Clean, thanks for putting Mike Plant's movie on the Front Page. It was a nice write up.
  8. Why? Because people get lazy and expect others to do their work for them. I wanted to let people know about this documentary, and I've done that, but I'm not going to post about each city that shows it. I am in no way involved in this movie in any way at all. However, Mike Plant, Shamrock V, and myself (Ranger 30) used to regularly sail together in Narragansett Bay. I posted the image for Roller Skates as the website in Minnesota used to purchase a ticket is not user friendly at all. I came close to not getting a ticket myself.
  9. I did managed to purchase a ticket about 10:00am, but there were not many seats left. BTW: The problem I had buying a ticket was not because of Linux, but a very confusing web page design. See the attached screen shot of where to click to order a ticket.
  10. Pre-order tickets are supposed to go on sale today, but I've not been able to find the "Buy Now" link to purchase one. It might be a Linux issue. I'll give the theater a call later today. Here is a new trailer for Mike's movie. Coyote, the Trailer
  11. For those near the Twin-Cities, Coyote is being shown on October 21st at 9:45am. I know I'll be there... Note: Except for notifying vjm in Florida of showing, this will be my last notice on film dates. If you are interested in seeing it, check Coyote's Facebook page as linked to in the first post.
  12. Just an update on future screenings. I'll finally be able see this documentary. Lunenburg, Nova Scotia Twin-Cities, Minnesota

  14. Sled Driver - Blackbird Stories

    While I was on this site, I wanted to post this photo of me sitting in the drivers seat of an SR-71 Blackbird. This pic was taken by the museum director who kindly offered to let me get in the cockpit. I had to sit on my leg to get high enough to see over the dashboard. However, I noticed right after I left the museum that I was walking a good ten feet in the air. And no, I will not say where this pic was taken.
  15. There is a special Pre-Release preview of the movie "Coyote" next month. I was invited but cannot make it. Here is the email I received. If your interested in atending, you should contact https://www.newportfilm.com/film-events/films/coyote-mike-plant-story We're excited to announce a special Friends & Family screening of COYOTE on July 13th in Newport, Rhode Island!
