      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. My grid from @dylan winter Mostly ktl, a Delos, and a beardy dude playing computer games! Good old youtube... I think I have watched nearly all of these already!

  3. Girl with patreon account goes sailing in hot place

    The main chap in Hold Fast is quite the brain. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Moxie_Marlinspike
  4. How fast is too fast for the foils?

    Moot point http://www.dictionary.com/browse/moot--point
  5. New low lat. Caribbean Hurricane - paging Mark !

    I don't know the area but if you Deerfield Pier is dear to your heart I think it maybe the last you see of it!
  6. Foldable dinghy.

    Yachting monthly did a few 'quick looks' at how easy to fold a few folding tenders are. The first few results of this search. https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=folding+tenders
  7. Bikini girl sails somewhere hot - new video project

    No bikinis but I am a huge fan of Ming Ming. He has a while to go to catch up with Delos etc, and being single handed in high latitudes makes him quite an outlier
  8. saving $ in 2016

    There is similar software around, but I found YNAB turned my money situation around. I earn a similar amount to the OP living in London. and I now actually living off last month's income. I am not affiliated with them in any way, just a happy user. http://www.youneedabudget.com/
  9. I read the section it is in as "Cruising and Sailing with Children" which makes a 'solo sailing' thread a little moot I would think (from the same thread) statements like "If you properly earned the $$$ for a new 65 footer you can't be a complete idiot" are probably easily falsifiable! Anyway following Jeffs adventures here is amazing and I cannot really believe that any sailor would think otherwise!
  10. What's up with asking for money?

    I have bought Dylan a pint and felt tight that it may not have covered one for his wife too. I have also given a few quid to couples living the dream and entertaining me in a drab London. I tend to the ones that concentrate on the struggling sailing rather than those wanting a drone etc but don't begrudge any of them.

  12. Anchor Geekdom

    I find this series of tests fascinating. I wonder if you have something like an "anchor buddy" or kellet to see if they do help with holding power (I am guessing not!)
  13. Ugly dodger collection

    Having a seaplane as a tender is pretty swank!
