      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. As Will stated easy fixes and solid builds. Currently sailing 121 which was an original year boat 1983, she is ugly but fast. Just replaced the forward bulkhead last year and did some chainplate core work, easy and fast. If interested I have 884 (1988, a good year) in my barn. Solid boat, needs some prettying up as former owner (only owner prior to me) had some one use a paint brush on her to cover some dock rash. All original boat that I think will be a rocket. Don't need two boats though.

    I would see what One Designs sail in your area and get on some boats to see if you like them. If you want to stretch your size a little you can't go wrong with a J22, perfect boat for a young family and it sails well not like some of the boats mentioned above.
