      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. From wikipedia: "The U.S Bureau of the Census has the annual real median personal income at $30,240 in 2015[1]" "The Census Bureau estimated real median household income at $55,775 in 2015..."
  2. This has been a puzzlement to me, also. One cannot talk with Mr. Swain, only about him. Weird. We constantly hear from him that he is financially secure, doesn't need to make money and wants to provide information so that people of little means can have a boat and sail, yet provides almost no information here, no lines, no accomodation plans, no sail plan and won't engage in an actual discussion about his designs. Like I said: Weird.
  3. plusse won!
  4. That was tongue-in-cheek. Or maybe self deprecating. Neither you nor anyone else answered my question.
  5. Is calling someone a "sanctimonious git" name calling?
  6. That's so backwards.
  7. That's a handsome boat. I thought of the Caledonia yawl, also. Who is prettier? Well, even as an owner of a set of Caledonia plans I find that lugger more pleasing to my eye. It makes me think of a deckless Bolger Chebacco.
  8. The streets of Nantucket were supposedly paved with ballast stones from ships returning empty from England.
  9. What you suggest will probably work. I have a Santana 20 that I've launched and retrieved with a Subaru Forester with no problem. My trailer has a third wheel and a forty foot cable that keeps the car well away from the water. It's not so much about horsepower as it is about traction. Try it with a larger standby vehicle ready in case of, well, fail.
  10. Neither internet audio nor broadcast FM audio are particularly good: six/half a dozen.
  11. Almost every radio station in the world is on the internet.
  12. Now that's funny! And I'm sure it's true. Also dumpsters are built with a higher level of craftsmanship.
  13. Same here for a few days - I did nothing and it has gone away.
  14. This is some sad shit. These folks are working at being miserable. Sounds like they have made all the bad choices they could think of. I can only feel sympathy and compassion for their situation. I certainly don't have a solution for their plight - I don't think their is a solution.
  15. Bump.
