      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.

    Looks cut off from that sexy transom taking out the lazarette to the aft cabin. Beer run boat. Adjusting and sorry for being mean.

    Cutting off your nose to spite your face. Ha! We Used to get strange takes on KYTE for docking and going through the locks. From above and at distance such a narrow gal surely '25. Then for the 55 vs '52 for docking costs, and then put near some crazy massive power boats (docking was often screaming on board and always possibility of us being smashed).. At Bell Harborwe had people step aboard to take pics without permission, and then asked if they could look at the staterooms. and hot tub Another group got into Bell Habor and told us that a brother had a sound cam and "we were dessert to watch." That was kinda scary. She did not look cared for in the last sale pics. Glad she is loved again (?) and getting to do what she was built for. I was spoiled for many other makes because KYTE was exceptional. 2 handed off shore rowdy quartering seas, lots of sail adjusts with reefing at 3AM. Ahhh, miss you lovely lady.

    What happened to the transom? We had put a Sail-0-mat on. Did not work well at all including all the Spectra lines. But that looks sheared off to flat. Curious. And the Spinnaker not the original. Darn. I will get over this lost love.

    She was KYTE #34 and it was A. Saw her once on doc in Alameda, just sold. Cried. It was quite the rowdy down coast in Nov, lots of work (rudder mainly and keel bolts etc.) once in the bay area. Then.... saw the post on that beauty for sale, again. Was with A at the time and a heart wrench. She was glorious and we were out most days on the sound and about as you know. Heard about your new beauty from A. Back in the area and would like to see her.

    Sailed #34 and miss her dearly. We raced and beat Maxis and down the coast 2 handed. Not my choice in November, years ago. She is still in my dreams. True love.
