      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. Sailing World mag

    A Surfer's Journal, but for sailors, would be terrific. Best photography, best writing, funded by a foundation, limited advertising and subscribers.

    Speaking of chainless, there are belt-drives for bikes - http://www.gatescarbondrive.com/products/overview
  3. Does anyone know what type of cat hull this is?

    Maine Coon Cat
  4. What boat to buy?

  5. Macif / Gabart / Jules Verne 2017-18

    Keep the monster off his backside? Gabard IS the monster!
  6. Real question is why do you store your boat on its side?
  7. Hard vs soft dinghy

    Great song, Waterpigs.
  8. Macif / Gabart / Jules Verne 2017-18

    He's on his way again, 20knts. 130 nm behind though.
  9. Macif / Gabart / Jules Verne 2017-18

    If only there was some way to warn him!
  10. Look forward to seeing the next episode. One thing that I loved about the Mapfre photo is that the guys are eating - something everyone has to do - makes it relatable even to non-sailors.
  11. Winter gloves for the single hander

    Shouldn’t that be ‘winter glove’ for the single hander?
  12. Hard vs soft dinghy

    Rowing only, but if you've got a big tidal range - Harry Bryan's Ladybug.
