      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. Blue water performance cruiser - do they exist?

    And half the price of what's been bantered around here. I just finished my summer clean. Each year I start at the bow and work aft. Anything not seen for the past year is gone. Engine parts and other similar needs excluded
  2. Blue water performance cruiser - do they exist?

    Pics of near sistership at. Wyliedesigngroup.com. Persuasion. Same hull same deck. But a far heavier interior. 5,000 pounds more, mine is more like rage on.schooner Creek boatworks, (the builder). Our boat has carbon drawers and other areas to keep the weight down. A tual pics are on my busticated computer. Sadly persuasion hit a rock at 8k and sunk. Mine is the one and only! Tom has my number.
  3. Blue water performance cruiser - do they exist?

    Wylie 51, 21,000 pounds, short rig. 5 winches total. Cold molded with Klegicell core. I singlehand it, and cruised for a.year and hàlf with wife ànd 12 year old son. The boat has been over 23k only.3 times. We designed it to get to Hawaii in under ten days. I am reluctantly thinking of selling it. PM me if you find this interesting.

    Skottt, we could build one in my garage and put a blue label on it and call it the real name "streaker" p
  8. Hey Editor, ever heard of one design?

    My comments come from when I priced out a mainsail for a 77 footer and NS WAS nearly twice the price compared to Q,s top end sail and Doyle,s top end sail. Add this to the comments this owner and I heard from other owners and bow types with regards to a sail that's super expensive and hard to handle on the bow of this size boaI, I wish you luck with another North scam. And I second the "put down the crack pipe buddy"
  9. Hey Editor, ever heard of one design?

    A couple of things.. If you think North is giving these sails away at discounted prices, you're naive. In my experience, a 3DI sail costs nearly twice as much on the boat I priced for a friend Meaning they can give away 20% fleet discounts and still gouge the group. If all NYYC boats HAVE to use North 3DI with little or no performance updating from year to year due to lack of cat 3 sailors, (costly), they could and will wind up behind the curve of a Quantum or Doyle program from another area that races PH and can develop. Limiting at best to believe that first sets of OD sails are the end all. North will probably come up with some story about how they took out two boats and speed tested them to come up with the ultimate shapes. One only has to remember the litany of bullshit that N/S has foisted off on it's trusting customers through the years to see where this will go.

  11. Baba 40 or valiant 40/42

    Valiant 40/42. Far better sailing boat and made in the USA. No stoopid bowsprit. But as the previous poster said, watch out for the blister years. These boats were built in the midst of them.

    I was there for the fight at bham yc, and one is a grandparent. About 1982 or so? I was also at SDYC bar when two of Scot's favorite targets came a hairbredth of fisticuffs, till a cooler head prevailed!
