      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.

    Stu- Thank you for your comments. I am also aware of potential issues with the rudder bearing but other than that it appears there is good consensus among the sailing community that this is a good offshore boat. Any other pointers you can offer would be very much appreciated. Thanks.

    Have done a lot of J/105 racing and have wondered what could happen with the sprit in a collision. Now I guess I know....
  5. J/120 offshore cruiser

    Looking at purchasing a J/120 for coastal/offshore cruising. Concerned over reports of water ingress in some boats on long port tacks in heavy weather and reports of structural issues around the sump in other boats. J Boats have claimed sump issues in only the first 25 boats which I've seen disputed. Are these real issues or isolated events? Would welcome input from J/120 owners.
