      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.

    This is a great thread. None of the participants are actually boat owners doing AYC. Most are non boat owners. One guy has two accounts and is talking to himself, actually asking and self answering questions nobody else brought up. Its unlikely anything will be resolved here tonight. I'm going to water the lawn.

    Yes, Its the second confused Billy in this thread.
  3. Jet-powered RIBs?

    Darwin is hoping he goes for the jet boat.

    It's not the first business Oaktree and their elk has ruined. Won't be the last.

    Didn't a bunch of brokers recently leave McMichaels to set up a Bavaria operation in Stratford? What do you know about that Zits?

    One of the factors is also the lack of leisure time. Vacation time has decreased in the USA over the last few decades. Young families don't have time anymore for the one or two week family summer cruise. Also there are more competing interests. Air travel is much cheaper.

    Using the same logic, please compare and contrast the prices of new loaves of bread 35 years apart, and explain why Average Joe hasn't starved to death.
  8. Jet-powered RIBs?

    On the safety front the lack of slow speed control makes it more dangerous. This issue has been analyzed and hashed out with many junior sailing organizations and programs. Jet drive lost. Prop guards won. On reliability. There is a reason you don't see many of them around. And does your local shop mechanic have the right size impeller and parts and experience to get you back on the water a day after you suck something thru it?

    Billy is confused. He blames Bush for Bavaria's fall. If average Joe can't buy a new boat with under 5 pct interest, he'll just have to remain crew for a while. And he's below average Joe. .

    And what have you contributed to society lately? I wish the innocent folks that are losing their jobs could all shit down your Eastern European servant's class throat. Without boatowners, you're driving an Uber around Gdansk harbor.

    There are 4 phrf boats registered that are privately owned. 1 from the host club.

    Oh. She called you a dickhead.
  13. Godspeed, Mrs. Bush.

    Wonderful woman. RIP As I scanned the reporting of her life and death by the three cable fake news outlets, I was pleased to see almost all 'journalists' of both parties giving her the recognition she deserved. Except for that walking, talking yeast infection Rachel Maddow who only reported quotes from others. Babs called Geraldine Ferraro a bitch. I wonder what her name for Rachel was? Whatever it was I am sure it was also richly deserved.
