      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. Bareboat charter in Croatia - no certification required?

    I am also looking into this: http://www.nauticed.org/sailing-blog/how-to-get-the-international-certificate-of-competence/
  2. Bareboat charter in Croatia - no certification required?

    As the original poster, I appreciate the feedback and didn’t love the petty banter and faceless low blows. I will go for my ASA104 cert starting with ASA101 equivalency test. when it’s time to book a charter in the coming years, I’ll have it. I agree everyone can benefit from some structured courses but it’s hard to pay up. I wish I could take a test locally to get certified, in a day, but that’s not going to happen in the Seattle area and would cost a pretty penny anyway.
  3. Does anyone know of a charter boat operator/owner in Croatia who is not going to force me/or husband to show a license? My husband and I have extensive cruising experience and own our own boat and don't want to spend $550 + the time to prove we know how to do it. Additionally, the ASA is the only one in my area doing certs and the ASA/IPC isn't always listed on sites as a license. I respect the value to do it, but am interested if it's possible to go without. Worst case, buy a boat for the vacation and resell it. Sounds like more hassle and money than the cert to me.
