      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.

  5. VOR Leg 6 Hong Kong to Auckland

    I enjoy reading the VOR threads for insight and news, but holy fuck some of you need to grow up. It's boring.
  6. Scanmar 33 - rebuild after dismasting

    Rig is done (has been for ages actually). The Selden spars are beautiful, and a huge upgrade on the factory set up

  9. VOR Leg 4 Melbourne to Honkers

    <delurks> Just wanted to thank the knowledgeable regular contributors to this thread, fascinating stuff, makes the race that much more interesting and enjoyable, while personally learning lots of high level stuff about trim, set up, tactics etc along the way. Good work, people. <relurks>
  10. VOR Leg 2 Lisbon to Cape Town

    Amazing helicopter footage, looks absolutely wild out there
  11. Scanmar 33 - rebuild after dismasting

    Mast has been dropped off at Plymouth and should be delivered here any day now. Progress is slow, unsurprisingly, but once the mast is here it should be another week before she's ready.

    Yeah, twin keels with bulbs. Not traditional bilge keels as such, the angle between them is much smaller, but able to take the ground. Very cool for drying harbours, parking on beaches etc. Survey and sea trials next week, will report back
