      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. il mostro attempting chi-mac speed run record

    it will be fun to watch some crew now take Adagio out in a good weather window and blow out this record, just because....
  2. VOR 2017-18

    Won an Olympic medal.... sorry, I know that accuracy of words matter here in the Sa forums.
  3. VOR 2017-18

    Was laughing when the announcer stated that no one has ever won the olympics, ac and vor. I called them out on their feed and they came back with a red herring saying that jk only got a silver at the olympics.
  4. VOR '17-'18 - THE GAME

    Yeah, this sucks as proved by the prolog, I am out.
  5. Radio Control Multihulls

    That's too bad. I would be very interested in seeing a foiling radio controlled sailboat going through maneuvers and gusts. I think that the rig design (from bethwaite perhaps) and the configuration and construction of the foiling controls would be interesting to see. I have plans from Dr. Sam and Duff Sigurdsen from back in the day when I was in Hawaii, and don't think that much has changed since.
  6. Radio Control Multihulls

    Sort of like this from 2012 https://youtu.be/pTRzckkVRhg
  7. Radio Control Multihulls

    all very old, and a little choppy - am hoping to see more. particularly with the transition to foiling and turns on foils THX
  8. Radio Control Multihulls

    NExt year? So you can't just get it on the water this weekend with your cell phone? Sad - I would have liked to watch some video.
  9. Radio Control Multihulls

    Doug, Can you take your foiling bouts out on the water and get some new pics, or better, video of them sailing? seeing the same pics over and over is getting old. Just some video so we can see the dynamics of how they sail. Thanks
  10. VOR '17-'18 - THE GAME

    If you use your card for auto sail and then even switch for a second to another said, like I switched to my code zero, you lose the remaining of your 24hours. And have to buy another card. The game ale is all about how they can make money
  11. new trimaran under 20

    Good on ya! We need more inspired garage builds in this world.
  12. VOR 2019-2020

    Imagine that, Mark fights to turn the VOR back towards its roots as a southern ocean challenge race for sailors, and the sponsors say screw that, my largest markets are in the middle east and china. I would step down too. There is always the no electronics slow cork bobbing around the world race coming up. And who knows if we can really race around the world anymore with province sized ice bergs breaking off Antarctica.
  13. Towing Nerdiness

    Anybody with similar information about a new 2017 outback 6 cyl. I am concerned about how the CVT will hold up if I tow anything bigger than a F24 (aka 2k lbs.) Dont know if I could to an F27 or 28cc. THoughts? Or do I just suck up to a friend with a real SUV or pickup?
  14. SeaRail 19 Folds

    anyone got pics or links to the searail and this? I am looking for a boat I can play with OR one I can weekend on with races when I can find good ones. So MT a F242, 241, or something like this. I was racing a-cats but have a son turning 13 and want to get him into the sailing life. THX
  15. look again at everything that isn't structural and find a way to take 100kilos out of it.
