      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.

    Whatcha folks in CA whining about plenty of snow in the mountains http://winter.mtbaker.us/snow-report/
  2. Seascape 27

    So what am I missing? I saw the seascape at the Salon Nautic in Paris... meh - I found nothing impressive
  3. Restoration Ron Holland IOR racer Flirt of Paget (2)

    Hell I'll trim the blooper anytime they need crew.
  4. Radio Control Multihulls

    Thanks Blunted - that's what I was asking about...
  5. Radio Control Multihulls

    There ya go! What's the thinking behind the amount of prismatic you have in the center hull?
  6. Radio Control Multihulls

    Doug has been building this thing for 4 years. and is nowhere near finishing. He not only has no plans - he doesn't even have a project task list. Most of the tricky bits like painting, Mast, Sails etc. He's outsourced.
  7. Beau Geste

    5 different yachts, all skinny compared to LOYAL, have won line honours in the last 11 races. Loyal and Beau Geste are built to be excellent yachts downwind but that hasn't proven to be the formula for Hobart so far. Now watch it be 30 knots on the beam the whole way and prove me wrong :-) I'm surprised no one has gone for the Scow Bow approach of the very succesful Mini of David Raison.

    Yes Lohring, that is why it was so surprising to see them let Doug get away with personal attacks on a regular basis. I suspect its why Doug has now been sanctioned by them twice in less than 3 weeks, hopefully it will be a learning experience for him

    I only see lace, not a cross bar...

    here's Doug's response from when he was allowed back in http://forums.sailinganarchy.com/index.php?app=blog&module=display&section=blog&blogid=36&showentry=34

    Given that its a 10 year old discussion, I would suggest its a bit dated. And its not the lack of monitoring that makes forums deteriorate Lohring.
  12. Radio Control Multihulls

    No because SA reset its blogging system while doug was banned, so that content is not available. But there is finally a semblance of a revivification of those conversations. Its in Dinghy Anarchy and there are two threads: Moth Worlds 2013 and one on Moth design
  13. Radio Control Multihulls

    He's still posting in other threads, and all I've done is just document his claims - the claims he erased so that he could come back and deny they existed Its called innoculation - but I think we have enough now in the record I can follow the advice of that photo

    Some more performance predictions by Doug (garnered from BoatDesign.net)

    +10 :-)
