      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. Cheap, Fast Dinghy

    I am looking for a cheap, but REALLY fast dinghy. I am on a tight-strung budget, so the boat probably would have to be less than 1.5k, and I am looking for a second-hand boat. The boat needs to be able to carry two people, and it needs to be solid and with no leaks. I am fine with doing some repairs or TLC on the boat, but nothing like a major overhaul. Thanks in advance!
  2. Cheap, Fast Dinghy

    Tillerman, I think I'm just going to try and raise enough money to get the cheapest one I can. How much would a really cheap one be?
  3. Cheap, Fast Dinghy

    Good news, guys! I finally, FINALLY decided on a boat. A Waszp! With the smallist rig, my weight is enough to sail it, it's fast, can "sort of" carry a second person, and it FOILS! I just wanted to ask where I can find a good, cheap Waszp.
  4. Does your dinghy have a name?

    Let me guess. FastYacht.

    Also, why does it seem like I'm trolling?
  6. Cheap, Fast Dinghy

    Thank you Eddie and Tillerman with providing some real, helpful answers instead of just calling me an annoying troll and hating.
  7. Cheap, Fast Dinghy

    What about the Laser Pico? Or the RS Quba?
  8. Cheap, Fast Dinghy

    I just thought of this. Wouldn't a Tasar or Laser 2 be perfect? There are cheap used ones, they are pretty fast, and they aren't that hard to sail.
  9. Cheap, Fast Dinghy

    Wait a sec, how am is my weight perfect for that boat?
  10. Cheap, Fast Dinghy

    Mike, can you show me a picture? And where can I find it?
  11. Cheap, Fast Dinghy

    What did you mean to say?
  12. Cheap, Fast Dinghy

    I'm sorry, but the TF10 is HUGE!! How would I cartop or trailer that? Launching would be hard enough.
  13. Cheap, Fast Dinghy

    Thanks, I'll start looking for a RS Feva.
  14. Cheap, Fast Dinghy

    My dream boat right now is either a VX Evo or a 29er. The problem is that there are no cheap secondhand VX Evo's and 29er's are a tad expensive.
  15. Cheap, Fast Dinghy

    Rasputin, that was not necessary
  16. Cheap, Fast Dinghy

    Now Now, Rasputin. Read Carefully. SCIENCE fiction SCIENCE fiction.
  17. Cheap, Fast Dinghy

    Rasputin, I'm really sorry if I seem like a troll to you. I assure you that I really want to buy a dinghy. I really didn't have 7K to spend on a Moth, and I was just asking. Sorry.
  18. Cheap, Fast Dinghy

    Okay, to help you guys, I'm going to provide a bit of sailing background and physical information. I am eleven, going on twelve, and I weigh 78.4 pounds, (35 kilograms). My sailing experience started in Opti bathtubs, then went to Club 420s. That is what I am sailing right now. I am inexperienced in trapezing, but have done it a couple times. I frequently sail during the summer and infrequently other times. I am looking for a fast, fun boat that I can sail on weekends and during the summer that will not rip my budget to pieces, so it should be less than 2, hopefully 1.5K. I am fine with doing repairs and TLC, but no complete overhauls like replacing all the fittings or something. Thanks.
  19. Cheap, Fast Dinghy

    Still though, where can I find used boats near me? And are I14's fast?
  20. Cheap, Fast Dinghy

    Also, does anyone know where I can get used boats in my area? I live on Long Island.
  21. Cheap, Fast Dinghy

    How fast is a 505?
  22. Buying a Beach Cat

    I have been sailing for 2 years now, with the boats from the junior sailing program where I live. Problem is, I would like to sail more often, and I really now want my own boat. I talked to my mom, and she said it was okay, but I would need to raise all the money. I want a quick, fast beach cat, and I wanted to ask should I build one, or should I buy one, and how to spread the cost out. Thanks!
  23. Cheap, Fast Dinghy

    Okay, I've officially made up my mind. Unless I find a really good deal on a beach catamaran, I want a REALLY fast monohull dinghy. Also, Doug, I'm fine with replacing the sails on a boat. I need to spread the cost of a boat out, so I might buy a cheap boat with a good hull but trash sails, then buy new sails once I've saved up enough. Thanks guys! (And I'm sorry if I'm annoying you guys)
  24. Cheap, Fast Dinghy

    What about a used 29er, or other skiff-type?
  25. Buying a Beach Cat

    WCB, where did you see the Hobie 14s that were less than 1k? I've been looking on TheBeachCats.com, GumTree, and Craigslist.
