      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. future shock (elliot 57) for sale at the moment.
  4. Future Shock, theres another one!
  5. Aussie pocket maxis

    Awesome Thread with some Great History! I have somewhere an old VHS tape of Inkeeper doing crazy downwind speeds, mostly underwater.. Anyone who knows how to convert to DVD or computer file ill post it to you as long as I get a copy back I can watch on computer? Its called Aussie Assult or something, home movie type thing someone gave it to me back in the 90's..
  6. turns out innkeeper is in a yard in Campsie! info in other thread! Dam I miss Sailing.. Might have to find a ride once I get back onto the coast! Jervis Bay Area if anyone is down that way!
  7. just found a thread on aussie pocket maxi's! should have looked in there, some old favourites coming up! Exile Broomstick Shockwave
  8. there was a few downwind flyers back then.. Fudge? Innkeeper These where back in the days when the Original?? Wild Oats was prime spot first on the left as you walked out onto the CYC marina I think!? got an OLD! vhs tape somewhere at home from Innkeeper I think it was the Hobart doing ridiculous speeds in heavy wind taking wave after wave over the bow. Then someone opened the hatch! I learnt some colourful new language I hadn't before heard as a young boy watching that! Hopefully I still have the video somewhere..
  9. After 15 years living away form the water (Very Soon to change!!) the building race between Wild Oats XI and Comanche has really got me interested more than I have been in a long time in racing and I hope to soon get back into sailing in one form or another, (Last regatta was 2000 cherub Nationals!) It has really got me thinking about the boats I used to Admire walking the wharfs of the CYC and where they are now? My old favourite Brindabella is still around, I remember seeing her when first launched and for me she is still one of the best looking boats out there (except that white Dacron main, common guys time to upgrade!) Does anyone know where some of the other boats from the 90's and earlier have gone? Amazon, I remember it burnt and was on a mooring for a while, did it ever get fixed? Sayonara Morning Glory New Zealand Endeavour Bumble Bee Condor 97 Thinking back its unbelievable how much the boats have changed In the last 15 years!
