      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.

    Good one papa..never thought of that. Makes Salter's response even more enlightening if you can believe the above Paintvid at the end where the impression is Scally went completely dark on them. With Scally having three options either left, as is or right, Salter waited a couple hours and went left quickly back towards the middle to cover all options and after the update so Scally didn't see them for 6 hours. And then when Scally turns the lights on, the Waggon turns theirs off. Pretty smart move ...particularly lead boat and with it going lighter up front.

    Now isn't that an oxymoron.

    I'm confused by shoelaces.

    Shag should have told them it was a blender

    Matter of interest...has anyone ever come to grief there?
  7. Show us your foredeck.....

    Wouldn't have got much action after twist tops were invented.

    Less than they are now...bit of compression due up front will eat into that though. Skally looking a bit silly...Witty is wanting the VHS tapes of their Stealth Video burned.

    Being within AIS of Scally doubt it. Hope not because Dee has the tools being better pressure and TWA on the approach to the Cape so if not roll eat into that gap which is probably more like 12 not 16 with the WP and then maybe get lucky when it goes soft during the rounding. Would like to watch that if it happens not be blinkered.

    Hope they have a periscope extension...it looks subterranean.

    Scally pooped it with Dee now in striking distance..the Paintwagon has turned the lights out and got outta Dodge.

    Finishes just on sunset last night at the time Scally went dark...."pensive" is the word that comes to mind.

    Thats funny Varan...I think you missed that one Dt.

    I agree Phil bow down the only way to go and maybe there was enough seperation that they couldn't see each other on AIS. The interesting bit is imediately after the sked following Witty turning the lights out Teapot came up hard. That would have left Witty for 6 hours going bow down alone. Even when it lightens giving Scally a better TWA on approach, that is a lot of extra miles sailed to get back and who knows...going dark they might just have opened the door wider for Dee. As going left was suicide the alternative was he went dark just for the fun of it and they maintained their line.

    Paintwaggon's significant and sudden course change after the preceeding update and now just revealed indicates that maybe Scally didn't come down to them and Teapot is putting himself between them and the Cape just to be sure. This stealth shit for viewers is a PIA.
