      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.

    Hi unfix8r, what is going to be the problem with my plan to use 3 windsurf rigs, one in the front and then 2 in parallel like a biplane behind that?

    not yet, getting closer, has been slow few months with bad weather and then had to work away from home a lot, I am doing all the boring fiddly glassing bits at the moment, takes a lot of time but not much to show for the effort picture wise. Should have the back tanks all done in next few days and will put some pics up then.

    thanks wcb but that link is dead, I think the class is dying in NZ despite the worlds in 19, it will probably be the last gasp.

    thank you guys but the link from the yachtingnz site to facebook page appears to be dead I did briefly meet probably the top FD sailor in NZ Andrew McKee just after I bought the boat and he gave me a few good tips which have been helpful in the rebuild.
