      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.

    Mast approximately 304" Not verified (I am getting ready to cut my Viper 640 mast in the next week or so and could give exact dimensions). If you are wanting to do a bargain boat, a donor boat could work well. I think Couchsurfers mast is a scow mast?. Say 304" and a pound per foot. Let me know how you cut/set up that Viper mast. I have one too, but haven't cut it yet.

    ....with the narrow sidedecks the interior space would go from 'tiny' to a bit smaller than tiny,,,,whereas you'll gain a fair bit of sailability Here's mostly narrowed sidedecks, from the inside. I also cut away the arched bit that further restricts the opening on the stock plans.I've spent some time back there recently rigging stuff under the deck, and I can say definitively that no fun will ever be had back there by anyone older than 6. My daughter thought it was cool that the space was her size... This looks great! I'm a little slow. Could you explain all the lines to me???
