      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.

  3. Uglyboat Admiration Society Hang Out

    I admire that it is named after Dorothy. I'm guessing ex-wife?

    I watched that video where they grounded their boat. Left the boat with no idea of Maine's large tidal ranges. Came back to find the boat on its side. Then spent the day eating raw "oysters", which were mussels. Didnt realize the boat was flooding while they were collecting "oysters". Holy train wreck.
  5. Express 37 q's

    I didnt realize Spy vs Spy was an Express but now it makes sense. I jog by the south beach marina where its tied up all the time.

    I do admit that I like their down to earth attitude. They're not afraid to show themselves vomiting over the side or admitting they're making plenty of mistakes. They also seem like the sorts that arent afraid to roll up their sleeves and get dirty.

    OMG did you see the keel on that boat. JFC. How does it sail? Their yacht broker was trying to teach them to sail and promptly tore their battened main... he then had no idea how to lower the blown out sail. That was the last you see of their broker.
  12. Boats that I would buy

    I'm sure you're going to love that boat. How do you plan to use it? mixture of cruising/racing? think you'll do much singlehanding?
  13. Boats that I would buy

    I saw that one on Yachtworld. I'm looking for a 34. Congrats - The boat you're buying looks great. I'd be curious to hear the survey results. Not sure where you're located, but there's a 34 for sale in New York https://sellyourboatnow.shutterfly.com/14937 I'm located in San Francisco. I think thats the only 34 on the market at the moment. Thanks!

    It seems everyone wants to turn their sailing exploits into a youtube reality show these days. This one popped up recently: Sailing Zatara A family of 6 sold everything and bought a nearly new monster Beneteau of 50+ feet without knowing how to sail. Hopefully this doesnt end in tears...
