      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. A dinghy left behind by the first polar circumnavigation by a Gunboat 55.
  2. Hey, Mate! Pull a wee bit harder there, ey? There ya go.
  3. Not sure why the knock about no orders or boats to build, Ian. There are Harry's out there sailing and being built. Lake Pee, denney wasn't arguing for the sake of arguing, he was fisking. ProaSailor, you spent a lot of time on a wild and crazy Trump connection. That one was a long long stretch. I find the back and forth about dimensions and materials to be far more educational than personality slamming. But, hey, it's SA, so fuck off.
  4. Thanks Gatekeeper. Transmission is out. He's not going to try to work on it at sea. They're fine with sailing, just hoping for comments on the best repair facility along that coast.
  5. Hello, I just received some satellite texts from a buddy on passage between Cuba and Rio Dulce, Guatemala. Their engine is down and he's wondering what his best options for repair are. He's worried about sailing through the reefs in Belize without the engine for backup, but if necessary what is the best place to get work done on that coast? He'd rather not turn for Cancun, so is there another option before Ram Marina on the Rio Dulce? Thanks for any suggestions.
