      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. Hi All, Plans for building a new dagger-board call for ripping strips and gluing them together. If the full size board is 1.5" thick, and your thickness goal is just under an inch, wouldn't it make sense to grind down to the desired thickness? Is a ripped and glued (yes, epoxied) board stronger than the natural board? I realize that I will need to glue two boards to get the 11" width I need. The same question applies to building the rudder. Thanks for your help. B.
  2. Tasar Single handed

    Can someone who has tried/ done it speak to a single-handler righting a capsized Tasar? Is there a weight threshold that can make it more doable? B.
  3. Tasar Specs

    I have found another method for making rudder and centerboard cores using sections of Western red cedar that are ripped and epoxied back together. I am also planning on wrapping the finished products in fiberglass. Thanks again, RB for the loan of the blades. Drove to upstate NY and back yesterday to pickup a trailer kit. Talk about putting the cart before the horse! B.
  4. Tasar Specs

    Hi RB, Thanks for the offer. How about If I bring some cardboard and trace them at your place? Then you won't have to worry, and I'll save a second two-hour round trip? If OK, what's your schedule like? Bob
  5. Tasar Specs

    Hey Ed, Thanks very much for doing that - I really appreciate it. I will definitely post pics of the finished products (maybe some in-progress ones, too). Thanks again, Bob
  6. Tasar Specs

    Thanks for all the warnings and other suggestions. Ed, if you could just send along the height and width of the dagger-board blade, and rudder, I'll be good to go. I do have the thicknesses of both. I also have a pattern for a NACA foil that I intend to use. Thanks for your help. Bob
  7. Tasar Specs

    Hi Ed, Yes, I'm planing to build both the centerboard and rudder from layers of high-density plywood. I adopted a '95 Tasar....literally the hull only. I'm hoping to put some kind of mutt sailboat together. Purist I'm not, nor do I have unlimited funds, so we'll see what happens. Bob
  8. Tasar Specs

    Hello, Can someone provide the (rough) dimensions of a Tasar centerboard and rudder? I'm thinking height, width, and depth (thickness). Thanks
  9. Rules

    Well, I was afraid that's what it meant, but was hoping otherwise. Not exactly what I was expecting in a sailing forum.
  10. Rules

    Hello, New user here with a question about the first thing I read - the Abbreviated Rules. What does "Don't insinuate Pedo." mean? Thanks
