      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. Thanks all. I think some sound advice here. Will test myself with an ammiter and a systematic turning on of systems. But if I can't sort it out tomorrow I will get a pro in . Thanks Will update
  2. So I think that I my boat has some stray AC current and I need some advice on tracking down the cause. The boat next to us had green antifoul after 2 weeks of being moored next to us (only on our side) Also last time we were hauled (and plugged in to shore power) I was getting shocks from the guard rails. At the time I thought it was static. Also the zinks don't last a season. Are there any tricks to tracking down where the bad connection is? It's a wooden hull. 76ft Loa with plenty of systems.
