      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.

    Sailing, mostly.
  1. Is it easier to right bad Proa's?
  2. FAKE NEWS surely Shaggster! 90min ago the wind sock on the Helipad at RBWH was horizontal out of the West and the aforementioned westerly was blowing the tats off the hookers at Chermside shopping centre. WillyWeather is currently saying 18k W at Peel Is. Better put the tether on the Border Collie.
  3. Don't give up on the 4hp outboard as it may well only be a stuck open exhaust valve. The experience gained breathing life back into a free outboard is a skill well worth having. Anyway better to learn and make mistakes on a freebie than on something you have spent hard earned cash on. Plenty of Utube vids on checking valve clearances and how to adjust them. At worst you will fuck something in the process and still be better off than you are now, you'll have learn't how to not make the same mistake next time. At best you will get it to run AND get some valuable experience. win WIN situation! If you have a go at it and are not sure how to begin ask here for advice. Plenty of knowledgeable types round here. Good luck!
  4. The correct gastronomic description is, "Knock it's horns off, wipe it's arse and bung it on the plate"
  5. Would be interesting to see the AIS track of the Crysta overlaid onto the TSS. Above my cyber skill level but may shed some light on purported AIS "glitch"
  6. Looks like a moveable cleat. The line off the outboard end of the cleat base goes to a car on the track. Move the car fwd or aft and the cleat follows it with the loop round the winch base keeping the cleat in a direct line of pull between the car and the winch. Nifty idea, cuts down on clutter
  7. Start with this, 1861 Adam Goodheart Knopf April 5th 2011 As a librarian it should be easy for you to get one on an inter library loan. Failing that pay $22.06 and get a copy from BookDepository.com
  8. I like this one.
  9. So who actually pays for the first coffee of the day, or should that be the last one?
  10. Try Googling up "Pinch Weld". You'll probably have more luck and choice with automotive parts suppliers.
  11. And as if Debbie is not bad enough Queensland is currently being subjected to an even bigger natural disaster. The XXXX Milton brewery is ablaze!
  12. Only 6 ahead of WOXI's 2012 position now and there's a soft spot in front of those on the Rhumb line.
  13. ;-) Mmm!! BLACKJACK? Just sayin"
  14. You been tossed into Marshalsea Dylan?
