      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. I have nightmares full of socks and enablers all still rooting for Rimas when he simply dead; all with their encouragement and good wishes.
  2. Ditto.
  3. I missed this post, Bob. I'm getting other stuff done at the moment. I'll call you. Can't wait to see the carbon cutter
  4. I think we should leave the goat ritual out.
  5. I sit in anchorages sometimes looking at the boats around me. Generally it's a collection of chlorox bottles and Reebok boats that bore me to death.Their owners have convenience and resale on their minds. Bob (and his clients) have generously taken us all on a journey with both Frankie Lee and the carbon cutters design and build from which I have derived much pleasure. These boats have beautiful lines and purposeful character that will make them the most talked about boats in any anchorage. If someone wants to gloat about small issues of trim ballast with these pretty boats, they can stick it up their arse.
  6. Dammit, you just missed Musket Cove race week. Rimas could have called tactics. Nat Geo or Discovery could then cover another shipwreck, at least.
  7. I'm not absolutely, categorically, unreservedly convinced of his demise but, fuck, it's a long shot.
  8. Lautoka is a town on the main island at the opposite end of Fiji to his last contact. Surely after almost 7 weeks in Fiji, Rimas would have contacted someone. I call bullshit.
  9. A cynical idea but quite possible. Or, of course, not cynical at all if you believe in the fairytale Rimas battling the elements or sitting on a beach somewhere.
  10. He doesn't say where!! If he said where then others in the sailing community could help! ... He's full of shit.
  11. I think the trip should be done done Rimas style as a salute to the great captain. (perhaps leave out the towing and the hitting of terra firma)
  12. Good luck...
  13. Snaggs on kava? English improves but empathy goes out the window?
  14. I dunno... some are still waiting for Elvis to be declared dead.
  15. 6 weeks this Monday
