      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. SS wire vs Synthetic

    Searching the forums for any experience on the cost of SS vs Synthetic rigging, but not finding much info. I have been interested in converting my standing rigging from stainless steel to Dynex Dux; given the claims of lightness, strength, ease on the sails, etc... Also, the claims that synthetic is similar in price has me very interested, yet I'm not finding that to be so true. I've priced out the Dux vs steel, turnbuckles vs dead-eyes and lashing and find the synthetic route to be considerably more expensive. Is this the experience of others who have looked in to this conversion? Thank you.
