      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. Huh? You mean the house passed it? (They did, in 2011, but it never passed the Senate.)
  2. Poke around the class association, bound to be some expertise there. http://www.thistleclass.com/home If you are Washington coast, here's the Seattle fleet - http://www.seattlethistles.org/ Here's the North tuning guide, maybe overkill, but lots of detail for setting up the boat. https://northsails.com/sailing/wp-content/uploads/2017/03/north-thistle-tuningguide.pdf
  3. Thanks!
  4. Pics!
  5. I'd start cruising and add as you go. You will know soon enough what's worth adding/changing.
  6. Use a horn. Long blast, 3 seconds, short blast.
  7. Owner is RBS Warren LLC. http://nereval.com/PropertyDetail.aspx?town=Warren&accountnumber=5791&card=1 Lots of molds out back - https://binged.it/2tKj8cY
  8. The 41 is a full-on cruising boat, but your point is still spot-on.
  9. NWA or GTFO.
  10. How many capsized multis in the Mac race? Since 2002, I can think of 3. Are there more? 2002 - Caliente 2005 - Emma 2017 - High Priority
  11. Multihull?
  12. Any reason why they start the fast boats first? More fun the other way around.
  13. Yes - that's the one.
  14. Thanks, just posted on the multihull forum.
