      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. Why do you like center cockpit? I have avoided that on purpose. Only because of feeling of safty in winds from 6 acc. BF. You are located far from the vawes in this case. So mostly it is about selffeeling as for a outside advantages. Such location of cockpit is not appropriate at the regular marina life but in case of offshore sailing it is very comfortable. Besides central cockpit allows to have very interesting deck plan. I mean owners cabin in front of the boat. So you have 2 cabins in different parts of boat with full isolation of your own life. Somtimes it can become important while a long trip
  2. I suppose that situation is classic: bigger boat longer stay at marinas. Owner will come there for a couple of weeks a year. And of course it will no be wind at this period. All the other time it will be staying at the bay. For such people motor yachts are much more suitable. But this mystery of big money will keep its secret somewhere deep at the mind of the owner.
  3. I understand that it can be a little bit annoying but Hallberg makes me dream every time when I'm looking at her pictures. Central cockpit, minimum of automatization, simple handling, optimal size of 40 feets, reliable equipment. I understand that it is old school but can't stand of it. A lot of beautiful boats are shown but as a dream Hallberg Rassy 40mk II quite good. But as a dream it is so expensive so far either. Yeah... and of course photos http://hr-club.dk/wp-content/gallery/hr-43-mk-ii/hallberg-rassy-sailing.jpg
