      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. but does she still crave the whomper?
  2. I could fit a years worth of food in My CD 27.... http://www.thrivelife.com/supreme-1-year-freeze-dried-and-dehydrated-food-supply.html
  3. the reason why i think that its the engine mounts- the prop obviously turns clockwise in one gear and counter clockwise in another gear.. that equates to torque on the mounts in a downward or upward pressure depending on which side and which direction you are going. for example, if the prop spins clockwise, then that is going to make the engine want to lift on the port side and push down on the starboard side.
  4. are the engine mounts ok?
  5. what is this all about???

    Im planning on doing this in april on my Cape Dory 27. I was going to go with awl grip primer and then epifanes 2 part over that. A few friends have done this with great results. I don't think one has to marry to one brand.

  11. I like the Uma kids. Very resourceful. I also enjoy these two quite a bit and love their boat..
  12. When I singleheand on my Cape Dory 27 I will jibe by first bringing the jib or genoa over to go wing on wing, then i stand in a crouching position with the tiller between my legs and sheet in the boom while turning the tiller to begin back filling the main. The boom comes over, I then start easing the sheet while the tiller is still between my legs and then I sit back down and adjust the jib trim if needed.
  13. I got a great chuckle from your phrase - "look at those power boats at the fuel dock... like drunks at the bar"
  14. its growing its own mast! how cute!
