      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. what is it?

    Looks like the a nice fast racer. The dreadnought bow allows for a greater waterline length and the bow goes over the waves clean. Check out the Fareast28R racing against the Farr 28 and the GP 26 on YouTube Key West Race Week or Charleston Race week. The Fareast tracks straight with no hobby horsing unlike the Farrs and GPS. The price is obviously going to be easier to swallow seeing that it is Chinese built, however, the quality is there in the build. I’m downsizing and selling my 28r, but I’m not happy about it...
  2. Rules of the "Road"

    Rules of the road in America generally require 3 deaths at a stop sign intersection before installing a traffic light for safety. I’ve known some of the people that had the lights installed in our neighborhood.
  3. Craigslist - Not mocking

    Found a possible taker
  4. Why the tie?

    I wore the tie of submission through 12 years of Parochial Catholic education. That was it
  5. Done here. Going back to see what good shit Jack’s come up with on the Patreon thread
  6. London Boat Show.... fail?

    That’s the way the Brits sailed them for centuries. They figured it out eventually watching the American America’s Cup sailboats going pointy end first to the finish line.
  7. Vinyl Graphics/Name

    Boat US. Inexpensive and if you screw it up, they send you free replacements.
  8. what are you listening to right now .... part quatre

    Oleg. Ukrainian. He did plumbing work at my house last week and asked me to watch his video. Thought I’d post it here. He wrote it and performed in Lakewood, NJ.
  9. Coolboats to admire

    Here you go. Chesapeake watercraft tend to have the Draketail transom. Small boats with Cross planked bottoms have them as well.
  10. I've had it with Rhode Island - Where to go?

    You need wider weather decks like I need more chest hair
  11. Misogyny in sailing?

    Boobs and mysogyny Together. Pretty epic Easter Egg there, PB!
  12. what are you listening to right now .... part quatre

    Peter Green!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  13. Why the tie?

    Ol’ Nat looks just like his grandson, Hallsey, who was there to accept his gandfsther’s award.. I had a fun time as a kid running Ted and Gary around in a Boston Whaler at our club in ‘78 at the Toms River Yacht Club. Check out badass Hobie sitting there! He was the coolest one in the bunch-every time!!!
