      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. Emotional support peacock denied flight by United Airlines

    Emotional support... hamster? Flushed down a toilet? This world gets weirder by the day. http://www.miamiherald.com/news/local/community/miami-dade/article198971069.html
  2. Oyster Yachts gone bust

    Oyster is going "bust" so that they can reorganize to avoid the liability of the keel fiasco. They will go through a suitable period of ominous press releases, scare their employees, depositors and suppliers to maintain the charade, and re-emerge with a "white knight", who will secretly be the same investment group that owns then now, with some lipstick and subterfuge. You heard it here first.

  4. Sailors Powerboat

    A sailor's powerboat is a powerboat built by a sailor. Greg Salthouse's take on this is brilliant. I lust after this boat. Outboard motor in a well (runs quietly and efficiently, easy to repair, doesn't take tons of room inside), big open cockpit, comfortable salon with views, and cozy bunks. Not too big, not too small. Not too fast, not too slow. This is the Goldilocks of powerboats. In my opinion. http://www.salthouseboats.com/southstar-37-coastal-cruising-vessel.html

    nice nav setup!! what boat Slug?
  6. CATARI comes along at Pacific Seacraft

    happy new year. will this be the year that CATARI splashes and sails?
  7. Average American worker productive only 2:53 a day

    To the OP. Let me see if I understand this... You're citing a home video, made clearly from a laptop or some similar device, with poor camera angle and a recently unboxed shower curtain as a partial backdrop, to point out that Americans are unproductive, posted on a sailing website which, almost by definition, we are viewing because we are procrastinating from doing something productive?

  9. Clipper Does a Vestas

    Not a word from the Clipper Race organizers yet on what caused this grounding? Or did I miss it? Breakdown of the chain of command on the boat? Malfunctioning gear? They didn't zoom out far enough to see, um, Africa? Or just plain stupidity and there is no way to write a press release on that with any positive spin?

  11. Two sailors and dogs rescued after 5 months

    Can someone explain (yeah right, never mind) why she is wearing a wetsuit? And why, after Ashland crew is aboard, she is capable of climbing the mast to just below the spreader, which, remember, is broken? While clad in a shortie. Maybe there's a force 11 storm a-brewin' at the spreader!
  12. FP Americans have not seen the ocean

    Does Brian Hancock have to include, in every fucking piece he writes for the FP, the fact that he sailed a Whitbread? Good for you Brian, but instead of some drivel that talks about, well, mostly, you, and then makes vague statements like... ...maybe you could put down your glass of rosé (spelled with an acute accent mark, btw) and do a fucking internet search? Maybe try this: Google

    /sarcasm font on/ Bob, the whole fucking horizon is bow down. Easily by .25". Can you adjust the planet's trim ballast too? Thanks; I don't want to fall off.

    You really ARE an idiot. Clearly a typo. "Real" boat stuff. Every village needs it's idiot. Congratulations on your appointment to this exalted position.
  15. J112E

    If yo're referring to Davanti Tyre or J/Lance, nope... "The spec included an IRC friendly keel without bulb, Axxon high modulus carbon mast with carbon spreaders, carbon boom and carbon steering wheel." Cite The boat appears to have come from a dealer with that keel, but that is not the production spec for a typical J/112e which offers the normal L keel or a shoal draft keel. It is an "IRC friendly" specification, created by an industry insider. I'd venture there was a quite a bit more than the usual expense associated with a "stock" boat. To be clear, I don't really care; good for them for putting another boat on the water. But that is not a typical J/112e. And it is typical of what is perceived to be the back-room dealings by an IRC friendly guy who has a lot to gain, personally and professionally, if his IRC friendly boat wins races.
