      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.

    Right on! My offshore multi experience went like this... Condor 40 ("Intruder"), Walter Greene Formula/Orma 60 ("Earth Voyager"), Crowther Super Shockwave 38 ("Nice Pair"-My boat), Newick 50 ("Manitou/Lucky Strike"), various other F boats and mults ("Moxie," "Cheekee," "Arete'" etc.)
  12. 2017 Race to Alaska

    "Nice Pair" was my first and only boat. I did sail on Cheeky Monkee from time to time, but never outside of the Great Lakes...if that is the one with foils you are referring too.

    Another great story about her, Rasp! That wasn't when I owned her. It must have either been before me, as she was being converted over to becoming Wahoo, or when Multihauler took ownership of her from me. We'll keep each other posted when and if we find out about how she is doing in Texas.
