      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.

  4. 1985 C&C 37 CB

    I have an 1982 C&C 37, and love it. Sailing performance is OK, very manageable for 2 (with a toddler). Upwind it will do very nicely against anything in it's era and will still outperform most modern cruising boats. A folding propeller makes all the difference if you want some extra speed but hurts a little in motoring performance. The rudder is HUGE so turning the boat when you want is generally not a problem. The full keel version draws almost 7' so it can be a bit tricky visiting some places, but if you do your homework you should be fine. It has a BIG genoa, so make sure your primary's are decent. the Main is a little small in my opinion but it is very nice having it sheeted from the cabin top (for cruising) and keep all of the main sheet stuff out of the cockpit. The Interior is a good design. With a decent sized V-birth (That's where my son sleeps as we can shut the door at night and still have dinner/drinks without keeping the volume down to much) and a 1/4 birth with over 6'4 of length. The Fridge is massive and can easily keep a weeks worth of food. Some keep the table in some take it out... either way there is lots of room below if you need to spend any time there. Bang for the buck it's hard to go wrong. Boats generally sell for the 35000 - 50000 and its tough to find a better boat for less money.
