      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.

  13. Tell me about Cape Dory Typhoons

    One last thing....the trailer.....this last one had a 2005 triad single axle trailer which was nice...my other one had a nice older trailer with rollers....hard to work on the bottom...some have no trailer and others have trailers that aren't roadable....like tires and bearings....that's an important part of the typhoon purchase...only other thing would be how old are the sails??
  14. Tell me about Cape Dory Typhoons

    Couple of other things.....prices range from 2-20k depending on what it is....the last one I paid 5500 for it and sold it for 7k....things you can do:...get rid of the ugly blue decks by applying interlux interdeck beige paint....the boat looks amazingly better....strip and redo the teak.....I put cdi roller furling on ....I never liked lifelines so I only bought ones without lifelines....get one with a nice hull not all banged up and nice teak that is not damaged....the rest can be fixed easily....if you want a picture or two email me....the people that bought mine love that boat....
  15. Tell me about Cape Dory Typhoons

    I've owned two typhoons....not fast but stays on its feet....I was in a regatta in august...second day in the winds were 20+....all day...I never rounded up once...they hold a good line but you will get wet.....nothing down below....weak points....cabin top can compress...I added a compression post to the most recent one that raised the top 1.5 inches....rudder can come loose from the post...easy fix...fiberglass around post and rudder...solid as a rock....cheap maintenance a big plus....if you just wanna go sailing...these are good boats...I liked the typhoon better than my cd 22 that I owned for 8 yrs....
