      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. we have done a upgrade on sails a few years ago.. to the 3di .. on a 1978 5 kt shit box. the following seasons since we have seen allot of things break . I so think Dacron absorbs allot of the shock where the new sails have very little give. the sailing results are great. a keen eye is needed on the boat maintenance . and yes the boat will twist . and allot....
  2. anything with a power plant larger than 10 hp must be registered here in canada.. SO a 30 foot sailboat with a 9.9 hp outboard motor does not need registration numbers. Just my 2 cents.
  3. I would also like to thank SailorGirl. If it was not for you and your team , most of the world would have been kept in the dark. cheers I owe you more than one Beer...
  4. who said you need mega bucks to win the Sydney Hobart.. Line Honours 74 IRC 1 IRC - Div 4 1 Corinthian 1 Go Enchantress Enchantress is home-designed and built of cold moulded cedar frames and stringers
  5. Nic and the 18footers guys from going out and covering the event with some quality and experience - literally, love these guys .... the best of the best... +1 cheers..
  6. Thank you !! cheers..
  7. a great way to loose fans and a fan base... tired of the bullshit fuck yahoo7
  8. PHRF-Lo rates boats across the borders. on the PHRF-LO there is an appeals form . PHRF-LO does a great job at crunching their race data every year. Clubs that belong to PHRF-lo are required to submit their race data from the season . the appeals forms are also on the site. . http://www.phrf-lo.org/ the race analysis is available also on the site.
  9. looking at the lake yesterday it was very light and patchy ..... a very slow ride in either direction..
  10. The C&C Mega must have been designed by a committee. an italian with sunglasses is one name for them.... with the wrap around plexi glass windows.. though they are ugly.. they are fun to sail. hul shape alot like flying tiger designs. very flat in the back.. a true 5 knot shit box.. I own an ugly mega......LOL 64027
  11. the official site shows not many sailboats at the show. lots of brokers... over the years we have not gone to the show . costly 18$ this year... parking .. and the drive... and I am not a fisherman so nothing there for me. so sad ...
