      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. Sydney to Hobart 2017

    Why be beaten by small fast boats when you can race no one and win?
  2. Dropped pin near Pacific Ocean https://goo.gl/maps/QdFyRPKHG5N2 few boats on the bottom
  3. Cutting down a good asymmetric spinnaker

    We got 7ft cut out of the guts of a 85 ft hoist Asso ( see Avatar). Was cut straight across the guts and stitched back together again. Does the job in the bang for buck cup.
  4. AC36 Protocol - Ask Dalts

    Just had a listen and it was one of the better ones in my opinion, up with the interview you did with Kenny whilst in the latter legs during the VOR a few years back Great to see Dalts getting engaged and expanding the conversation and you just sitting back and listening to him talk. Good work, mate.
  5. who won?

    The opposing political party in Bermuda
  6. Sydney to Hobart 2017

    I want to employ you as a negotiator if you got it for under $80k
  7. Teams?

    And Dennis in 87 and Alan Bond for most of the 70's and 80's before he won it.
  8. Paging Aussie Sailors

    Yeah yeah. Twilightinf is right at dinner bath and bed for Mr 8 months old...come summer we'll be back out, we'll trusting the boat is still his.
  9. Paging Aussie Sailors

    That's what I was thinking! Almost twilighting season too...
  10. Paging Aussie Sailors

    Yep, let me know the details.
  11. Sydney to Hobart 2017

    Would he fund an AC tilt?
  12. Sydney to Hobart 2017

    I think the original mast was a One Australia spare. We all saw what was going to happen there
  13. Wifey and I honeymooned in Whitsundays and personally I was pretty underwhelmed to be honest. Airlie was good for cheap night life, lots of protected anchorages but it's really not overly pretty. I mean Whitehaven beach is surely only popular as it is the only bloody beach around that's not mangroves or rocks. Port Douglas looks good but I've not been there myself.
  14. Australian Challenge

    Twiggy couldn't give two shits about the ego game of the cup. He is heavily involved in working with remote aboriginal communities to stop them raping babies and implementing cashless welfare so families don't blow their dole payment on booze and ciggies rather than food and rent, well that and suing the ARU for dumping the force. He is a rugby man and business wise, his customers are Chinese and Indian. Id love to see old mate Loyal get a campaign up, seems to have the cash and assume the ego, but doubt he could do it on his own. He had the celebrity contacts to get it noticed and public backing. Could Spitball get something going? Guess he has a bit of cash and contacts. Sure some wealthy Sydney wankers would love to be his mate.
  15. It was in Freo when it came over and looked nice but then went to live 80 miles south and race against shadows. I guess that got boring. Not really a good boat selling market on this coast right now so I can't see it going anywhere at that price.
