      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. zero the hero

    I am a group 3 because of my business. I am classed in the same group as Jimmy Spithill. Really? This pretty much knocks me out of crewing on any amateur only event. I am talking about going sailing and not getting paid. Disqualified. I think it should be performance based, and the rules should account for those who are paid a daily rate to sail vs. those (me) who work on boats, race boats, occasionally coach crews, etc. I think it could be a simple % of income. If you get say 80% of your income to SAIL (not sand, sew, splice, etc) then you are a 3. If you work in the industry, you could be a 2. That way each class can set rules on how many pros, Minor leaguers, and amateurs can race. If I built Bats and Gloves and was a batting coach for a local farm team I should not be classed the same as A Rod.
  2. Craigslist Finds

    was really just curious if anyone knows anything about the advance built FDs.
  3. Craigslist Finds

    Just picked up a FD (1976 Advance build) for a song on ebay, with trailer and new tires. I have a US1 built by them and it is a really solid boat, other than the places they used ply. (Already replaced with corecell and glassed...) Anyone know about the advance built FDs? I would love to see pics of the EC boats, I have a Tornado I was thinking about doing for that, but if the FD is a better choice... I am thinking a small fixed sprit, A sail. It has a snuffer already, so that would be sweet.

    the MI boat is a great deal, it is setup really well. I have done a couple transeries and a mac on it.
  5. Find me an Offshore Sporty 35-40' Under 100K

    FT10, plenty of macs (both) done on them, think some of the west coast boats have done some mexico stuff too. And, you can drag it back home at 65 kts to windward! bring on the haters....
  6. Henderson 30?

    miami to nassau sounds fun, let me know if you need crew!
  7. Lake Erie Anarchy Part 2

    Umm.... Sail? They had the Farr 30s there last year for 4 days.
  8. Lake Erie Anarchy Part 2

    Straw poll: How many boats are around to participate in a 'super 30 class' at cleveland race week. (The last part of the week and weekend) I think this would be Hendersons, FT10s, and Farr 30s. (and any others that would race level).. I think we could get Say Uncle (hendo) Toy Tiger (FT) Viper? (FT) Rush? (FT) Are there any Farr 30s still around? Anybody willing to travel to this kick ass venue? and twalk amongst yaselves......
  9. Darts #4 & #5 build log.

    Whoa. I just clicked through to your website. $84K to $112K plus sails? I mean, it's a nice boat, but this is crazy talk. Now a J70 seems like a good deal. But what's really a good deal would be buying my club a dozen decent J24s for that price. Sorry, you've jumped the shark, dude -- too too much. And why are you the only boat builder who fills up these forums rather than buys an ad like every other one? At that price, you can well afford it. At that price, I suspect he's breaking even. Large amount of painstaking... and highly skilled... labor going into this boat. OTOH Jim is showing pics of how he builds the stuff other boatbuilders hide, and don't want you looking at too closely even after it's hidden. With the educational and entertainment value of these Dart-building threads, SA should be paying Jim FB- Doug +100

    The big electric cat will be in attendance, hoping for a few more 36.7s though, deetroit guys? Other 36.7s, only a month or so for NAs....
  11. Lake Erie Anarchy Part 2

    Bueller, Bueller? Are any of you t10 guys coming to bay, if not why? and they better be good excuses... I know the B367 fleet is hurting right now, with 2 cleveland boats out for some time. THE BIG ELECTRIC CAT will be representing though!

    I just emailed Bob to get his input on here, but my take on it is For OD classes, W/L the whole 3 days. PHRF classes Islands on Friday with W/Ls thrown in depending on wind and input. Cat Classes, inshore W/L Alas, we can;t forget about the feeeder races, from cleveland, Sandusky, and I think Port Clinton, and North Cape. Thursdays or wed night maybe from cleveland.... See you there, remember last year??? Girls, booze, amphicars, boats, golf carts... This place is the ultimate Disney land for Drunks! Oh yea there was sailing too...

    Bay was a blast last year, (for the first time in a while) with great turnout, I think it will be the same or bigger this year, Sadly the bene fleet might be down, unless we can get a few detroit and erie boats to show up. If you aren't doing anything that weekend, why not go to the bay?
