      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.

  2. A dollar per mile

    Especially when you burn the sails for fuel. Even more expensive!
  3. Masthead VHF antenna and cable

    Please don't drag ET into this.
  4. I agree, race record / course record, it's all good. Maybe encourage some others to take it on.
  5. Meh. Are they just sailing there or are they following course established by the Chi-Mac race? I assume the draft on Il Mostro means they have to sail through the channel at Grey's Reef anyway. What next? Sydney Hobart in June?
  6. which yacht designer ?

  7. Suggestions on how to remove Sikaflex residue?

    Kerosene and salt. No, wait, that’s for treating poison ivy.

  10. Several years ago, Bob had a 18ish boat he designed for himself - that was sweeeeeet. It was posted here, but I can't find it. Even had his guitar drawn into the plans.
