      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. Strangers in the night...

    The lady in the emergency row seat nearby said that she didnt really deserve the full weight of the lore or even to taste a good, stiff fine, All she was doing was employing mouth to cock resuscitation. combined with a heimlich manouvre which dislodged the savalloy from a very sore throat.
  2. Is Trump naieve in thinking he can run amok unchecked and undo hundreds of years of decisions, or has he just become bored with the umpire and taken his bat and ball and gone home. Push the button and nuke North Korea and be remembered for something other than 'Youre fired" and Fake news.

    so while she was poledancing up the mast, leaving the helm in the hands of a complete novice, she saw that a spreader had blown its bolt and at that point just decided to lay back and take whatever. Yep, there is enough for a B grade movie right there. Throw in a tow by the same Russian submarine that towed Capitano Rimas, and the world is agog in wonderment at what can be achieved by turning ones back on convention and capitalistic greed.... ho hum.

    Thats it. Im over reading this drivel. His feigned illiteracy and feigned poor grasp of english, and feigned absence of rudimentary boat handling, and feigned position reports and false reports to rescue authorities, his grifting, the hovian trolls that feed him.... The whole thing is a con. And oh what a suprise. He's also Russian. Goodnight comrade.

    all it would take to end this is for China to use the red phone to tell Donald what Kims gps coordinates are.

    you should be able to replace the venturi with a small piece of half inch plastic hose or copper pipe angled 45 degrees backwards so it doesnt catch seaweed and sucks better when the boat is going forward. Reduce the amount of water in the case by shaping and siliconing styrephone blocks in there. in dinghies with drop centreplates, it is not uncommon to recess rubber flaps around the centrecase slot or silicon 2 peeces of shirtbox lid type plastic over the centrecase slot, which overlaps each other and seals the slot when the centreplate is lifted. it meant you had to be very careful to not catch weed on it, and be careful when putting the dinghy on the trailer because the rollers would rip it off. A well fitting seal, low drag venturi, and minimal water inside the case is low drag and makes the boat lighter, which equates to faster. You might want to switch to a hard racing antifoul also, applied with the correct roller, in the direction of the water flow, which means periodic sanding, but it is faster than ordinary thick antifoul slapped on with a paint roller.

    the venturi is designed to empty the water out of the case, but as the sealing plate is bent, you would have massive turbulence inside the case, exacerbated by the venturi. As the water inside the case isnt static, the amount of drag that the open slot and venturie offers is magnified. On other boats, once the case is empty of water, the venturi sucks air, and doesnt have much drag. As your venturi is constantly sucking water through it (because of the bent filler plate), it presents a substantial drag.

    Dammit I thought I'd be inner circle by now but the Oracle has spoken. At 1595 posts I'm a tad short for legend turkey status, but then again a turkey is head and shoulders above pigeons. Where are the truly great men of the century, when the best we can produce is a total idiot voted in by millions bent on sticking it up the man.

    In Serbian, the capital M is often inadvertently substituted for an F, which would make Rimas's boat Mimsy become Flimsy but we already knew that. In Serbian Azaragi dialect, "Rimas" means the " blunt stone used to Ream the mAsses" , but hey, we already knew that too.

    Sock puppet of the year award goes to Fiji Vuli for perseverance in absurdity above and beyond the call of Duty Free. Living testament to the toilet bowl of life... You can only circle the rim for so long. Eventually the vortex of a remus passing will leave sock puppet fence sitters under turd...

    I read the Secret Life of James Cook this week, (book 1 of a 3 book set on his life), and was amazed to find that before he set out to transit venus/discover the great southern land, he prepped for his journey by talking to another ships master who documented his own earlier approach to FIJI from the north east. He laboured on about the difficulty avoiding the reef that laid across the path to Fiji, and how a keen eyed lookout was required both day and night. He recommended that the best approach was on a clear night, when the phospheresence of turbulent water on the reef lit it up like a beacon. He warned against trying to approach it during the daytime. The width of the reef, combined with its low visibility meant that you didnt see it until it was too late to be able to sail around its ends. Even with a young eagle eyed observer in the crows nest, he was struggling to clear it in time. With Rimas's inability to do anything other than wallow on broad reach downwind, and his absence of proper lookout, and poor preparation, he was toast.

    Rimas disc His mistake was to be a provacateur Russian American exercising freedom of navigation, thinking in Japanese and talking in gibberish code within nuking range of uncle Kim aka Sillius Soddus.

    Wind off the stern quarter. Dark night with only a faint line where the reef is. No sound of breaking waves to wake him from a deep sleep just a gentle crunch abeam below the waterline. No chance of sailing off. No electric bilge pump to buy him time. No motor to reverse off. Second crunch, different spot. Now 2 water spots to contend with. Too weak to bail. No lights to see. Nobody there to save him this time. Lays back in his bunk and feels the cold black water rising over him. Thinks, damn, it's their fault.they knew better and put me here. Curse you Jean. The end. Boat slips off the reef into the cold dark world BELOW. Crab food.
