      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. any experience/ideas for bareboat in the BVI?

    The story I was given from our dive boat team was that people were locked in their cabins for "safety". Wiki states: "As was normal practice at the time, the passengers in Rhone were tied into their beds to prevent them being injured in the stormy seas." Seems safe.

    Wait, when were you planning on going?

  4. Tattoo 26- WTF???

    You signed up to post that? Frank?
  5. I may be completely off, but I think full length battens in a main of that size may be too heavy.
  6. Attwood fuel line warning

    I did that back a while ago as an effort to thwart the ethanol. I began noticing poor running/idling of my Tohatsu 6hp 4T outboard and a distinct burning smell from the exhaust. I pulled the plugs and it was running way to hot from the 100LL aviation fuel. Ended up switching back to standard 89 from the pump with some treatment and it ran great after that. *Your experience may differ.

    The new Jeanneau Riviera, sick. Some say they're a bit of a brick in the water but the accomodations make up for it.

    It says Islander 30 in the ad. From the pics and price, I'd consider buying it. Must have been looking for the other Craigslist thread.
  11. How fast is too fast for the foils?

    I'm sure DL will tell us.

    The great thing about converting to two backstays is that you only need half as many attachment points. Brilliant really.
  13. Outboard Motor Mounting Santana 27

    It's a Garhauer. Bolts swap out easy.
