      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. J109 Backstay Loads and Other Things.

    That would be great!

    Anyone got pictures of how to secure j109 mast heel/butt for offshore regs?
  3. Splicing different sized double braid together

    Anyone got any link to a guide on how to core bulk up a halyard?

    Thinking more along the lines of a length of pvc pic pipe split on its length and moulded onto the spin pole mast track with a heat gun. Would it work?

    Nice upgrades... Has anyone come up with a slick way of covering the spin pole track on the mast? Happened to us before where it ripped the #1. It's got polished off with a Dremel afterwards and covered with duck tape but it looks naff. The clew ring on the jibs does damage it

    We have one in the inventory. Just one. As a balance there are 3 #1 and 3 #3. I think the weather here is prohibitive to using them a lot of the time. I've certainly done entire series not getting the big sails out of the bag before. We have one in the inventory. Just one. As a balance there are 3 #1 and 3 #3.

Cheers, We carry a #1 up to 13knot but the heavy #3 still leaves us well under powered till we start hitting 22knots. So always feels like we have a gap in the wardrobe. Have carried another #1 up to 17knot and quite comfortable but very short sail lifetime doing that.
