      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. ORC and sport boats

    ....with the jib halyard is to tight and the bow it taking two calls at once.
  2. Twitter Toddler in Chief back at it

    "I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States." How many times has he broken his oath since placing burning his hand on that bible?
  3. Club racer electronics

    You ping fucking starting marks in the Estuary?
  4. Pac Cup 2018

    Bring freeze dried beer next time.......
  5. Rolex Big Boat Series - San Francisco

    What big boats? Not many or any around here anymore.
  6. A few questions on hurricanes

    Maybe without any headwind and running at a very high RPM. I've sailed over 5k miles on a HH54 including two Hawaii return crossings. Boat is fast but not wicked fast. Great ocean boat but I wouldn't want to try to outrun a system unless I was already caught out.

    This. Stop breeding or one child max. I know it's bad for the pryimid scheme society we have but if you want to get scared by a graph take a look at worldwide population growth.
  8. J/92 heavy weather sailing

    I see three.......
  9. CF mast refinish

    SprayMax 2k Clear. Two part paint in a activated spray can. $25
  10. AIS to iPad or other tablet

    Yes that will work, looks like a nice inexpensive unit and runs on 12V. It does NOT need to say NMEA, simply RS422.
  11. AIS to iPad or other tablet

    Search Amazon for RS422 to Wifi. Find one that uses 12V power. All RS422 to Wifi bridges should work with no complicated setups. NMEA (& AIS) are simply serial strings.
  12. AIS to iPad or other tablet

    Used Brockhouse iMux and others but without additional needs like multiplexing NMEA signals $75 sounds better.
  13. AIS to iPad or other tablet

    Standard Horizon 5500 (VHF/GPS/AIS) to RS422 to WiFi bridge ($75 Amazon) to iNavX or such.
  14. Impeachment = Violence

    So Trump supporters would get violent for ANY impeachment reason?
