      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.

  5. Thanks for that Leukemia Cup link. There will be a navigators course around govt marks for the Leukemia Cup on Saturday the 24th. Also, that night we will have a fun dinner with TWO BANDS, complimentary Goslings, Beer and wine, and some great silent and live auction items. Raise some money, save some lives, have a fun time.
  6. What i would really love is if you combined the Shift with the ProStart........
  7. Did the trip from Holland to Denmark last summer via the Kiel Canal. Stops to consider in Holland are Den Helder, Texel and Terschelling. The Frisian Islands are beautiful and worth exploring. From there go over the top to Cuxhaven and then through the canal. Both pleasure boat locks were not working last summer creating long delays and having us lock through with some biggies. Easy trip otherwise.
