      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.

    It all depends upon how you crossed it. If it was a boat with two mast head halyards and you got the non working one back at the mast behind but outside the working you can get them back around the outside easily during a gybe or by letting the kite flap a lot to get around the outside of the kite. All the other scenarios I can think of (masthead halyard under fractional halyard and around outside of working masthead kite) fill me with so much dread I cant even contemplate without another glass of red and knife and wearing a harness.
  3. Hi Extrad,

    I read with interest your comments on MOB recovery. I would be grateful if you could have a look a rescue & mooring device www.cadarn-solutions.co.uk)and let me have your thoughts on if it could have helped you. We envisage it to quickly attach a line to the casualty and then by time for recovery actions to be implimented, such as using a winch, boom, halyard, etc.
