      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. Bowsprit and Dockage

    I'm working on the purchase of a Hallberg Rassy 41. The boat is called a "41", but is actually closer to 51 feet when you include the windvane and bowsprit. For those who have similar appendages that extend the length of your boat, does your marina charge you dockage based on the LOD or LOA? A 10 difference in length at 18$ a foot is significant, looking forward to your thoughts. thanks! adam
  2. Hallberg Rassy 41

    The teak decks have already been removed. With the exception of the toe rail, hand rails and bow sprit planks, actually does not have a ton of teak. I feel pretty good about the boat, really, my biggest concern is the performance and a relatively high time (5800 hrs) Yanmar 4jh2. Still thinking it over, no decision yet. It really was not the type,of boat I was looking for, but its just so pretty! A
  3. Hallberg Rassy 41

    Good Morning, As I am searching for boats and being slightly dismayed with the modern light displacement/hull liner boats, I have come across a nice looking Hallberg Rassy 41. I have read plenty about the quality of the boat, but I can't find much on her performance, specifically in lighter air. I live in North Florida and 5-10 knots of wind are my reality. There are plenty of videos of similar boats in 35-40, but not much for my wind range. Anyone have any any experience with these boats that could pass some first hand knowledge on sailing in lighter conditions, pointing ability etc? I appreciate any help you can provide!
  4. Keel Modification

    Irma was kind enough to destroy my boat last month, thus I am in the market for a new one. I have read a ton of info on the trials and tribulations of Saga yachts. Despite some of the disaster stories, I am still interested, except... The few available on YW and in my price range have drafts exceeding 6.5 feet. For my area and intended cruising grounds, I need something less than 6, preferably closer to 5.5. As these boats have cast lead keels, it seems it would be possible to cut the keel and design some type of "bulb" to account for reduction. How about surface area and lift? Is this a dumb idea, or is it possible? If not, any suggestions on another boat in this size range with similar performance to consider? thanks!
