      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. 20+ Footer - Building in Hawaii

    Bump... 8 1/2 years and still no float? WTF? The ultimate tease. Anything we can do to help launch this design?
  2. Vestas 11th Hour recovery

    Gotta love modern build technology. Thanks for the pix.
  3. VOR Leg 6 Hong Kong to Auckland

    Looks the the flypaper between mapfeng is giving up the ghost.
  4. Fast "safe" boat....

    Sock alert..
  5. Fast "safe" boat....

    Same difference
  6. AC36 - The Venue

    Oh so many words... Any decisions?
  7. Fast "safe" boat....

    That boat even looks racist.
  8. VOR Leg 6 Hong Kong to Auckland

    Maybe I'm hallucinating, but there seems to have been another report in Brunel's favor
  9. VOR Leg 6 Hong Kong to Auckland

    Isn't that like the tail Waggon the dog?
  10. looking for a melges 24!

    Melgi are funny. I personally know the owners of two 300 series boats, both who bought new, neither have sailed them in years, but both talk about their boats all the time, and the adventures they had in them. It is like they just can't let go.
  11. Black Celebration

    And here in the States, tomorrow is a national day of morning. Enjoy your day off and please try to live your lives and conduct yourselves as anything other than mindless "shitholes". Peace!
  12. VOR Leg 6 Hong Kong to Auckland

    You know it's gonna be another good day when you wake to find the auto you left outside last night now looks likes this... Forecast for next three days is cold and clear. Sorry boss, powder day! (or three ) Don't y'all miss gybing duels along the ice exclusion zone? Dongs gotta have sore necks by now. Compression is a myth (like it's all about who breaks through first), and yes, I too like Brunel's speed and positioning. Peace out. Early day tomorrow
  13. Vestas 11th Hour recovery

    Agreed, but nice to have a collection on photos in one place. What about their "unlit" claim? Pure BS speculation?
  14. Vestas 11th Hour recovery

    Lots of pix over at sail-world. Their article claims the collision was with an unlit fishing boat. Was it established that the fishing boat was indeed unlit?
