      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. Sailors Powerboat

    Flat sides so fenders sit nice against sailing boat Light composite construction so it doesn't bang against sailing boat when alongside [Needs water ballast tank tho] No skeg or V so it can go right in to shore to take dogs for a p#ss. First mate can get ashore without getting her feet wet too Open transom [Great for dragging wake boarders, dogs and conger eels through] Double berth
  2. Older fast Aus multies

  3. Ditching Your Rig At Sea (from PD)

    Always danger of it punching a hole in the boat, sometimes better to get rid he wasn't motor-sailing, he started the engines straight away [Not always a good idea if there is stuff around the prop]
  4. A bit different!

  5. Dyneema Deck Railings

  6. Spindrift 2 Jules Verne 2017

    Somebody is for an arse-kicking when they get in!
  7. Auckland multihulls

    One funky boom too!
  8. fuel ballast

    Same reason that you don't use fresh water store as ballast - you have to be prepared to dump the lot in a hurry and not have your judgement clouded by the value of the ballast

    AIS transponder was fired up this pm. They might be thinking about a move.

  11. Anyone know this cat?

    First though was 45' Apache by Sailcraft/MacAlpine Downey but there is no step in the coach roof

  13. Team Actual west-ward tour

    What the hell has it got to do with the designer if someone steps over the side of the boat and drowns! Hancock school of journalism in action Crass

    Sail on Ian. Thanks for everything. Always the most elegant solution to any design issue..........
