      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. Trailer Winch F27

    Thanks for all the info everyone really good points. I will be sure to ask about tow vehicles! I am sure the 10 foot U-Haul that I rented would not be recommended. I will have a look at brake winches. Trying to find something I can use a rope on instead of a strap. Will try to loosen nets, I guess the screwdriver is to keep the net intact while towing?
  2. Trailer Winch F27

    Thanks for the advice Wess will check into all that you mentioned. Good point about the trailer will check it over too. It is a Pacific Trailer still so will have a look at their site. Hoping to bring her back into good condition soon!
  3. Trailer Winch F27

    Just purchased an F27 that needs some attention. I am looking for a trailer winch. Currently it has a winch that brakes automatically but is showing it's age. What rating should I look for to be able to handle mast raising and trailering? I was looking at this winch: https://www.amazon.ca/Fulton-K25500101-2500-Winch-Brake/dp/B002085MGM/ref=sr_1_2?s=sports&ie=UTF8&qid=1493052633&sr=1-2&keywords=trailer+winch+boat+2500 Does anyone have recommendations for a brand or model?
