      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.

    Hey Crusty, Fellow old (er) coming Back sailor here too I sailed on lakes laser boats and crewed on get this, a hunter 466 with a washer and dryer . The crew were awesome and we all learned alot ! sailed from NYC to Marthas Vineyard by way of Newport and Block, scared Nah It was not my boat. enter wife and child exit boat .... Well now after being off the water for over 10 years I have purchased a slip and have an offer in on a 1982 C&C 37 that I could not pass it up new everything sails ,electronic canvas... and a solid boat that I have researched pretty hard. ( comments also welcome ) PS I have no crew. the Wife will help if I stay in site of land LOL!! but friends are interested and sure I will find some helper or 2 so you are welcome to come sail and learn whatever I can offer. I think it will be a constant teaching what little know LOL but not afraid to try !

    So digging up this thread a year later ! No one has mentioned the one I am looking at the 1982 37 with 5'6" fixed keel ( small bulb ) done to C&C standards ? Boat is Beautiful as mentioned and a great value. and- its all I need or want to can handle for a first boat.without going the Hunter Catalina route no offense, just not for me. Value? heck yeah !! new sails, new cruising spinnaker in sock.. new canvas, new electronics Mint condition to boot ! so yep I am jumping on board ! engine purrs like a kiten I Felt just 1 small area on coach-roof by port side bow may be delaminating a bit ? but very small 2x2 ? rest of boat is like a rock ! Any other concerns survey should be looking at? I know hey its a 35 year old boat. Sure feels right so trying not to overcomplicate it and I like a little speed any comment are appreciated !! see ya out there !
