      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. 525's - "The Original Sport Boat"

    I always thought the mid 90s was cool for sport yachts. Mumm 30, Melges 30 and Henderson 30.
  2. FT 10M

    That is the fix. Works well for us.
  3. Sailing with running backstays

    I remember back in the 80s and 90s when the ruñners were made out of wire. They always seemed to clip someone's ear and make them leak a little blood.
  4. Henderson 30?

    I snapped a pic of the old ones with a measured length and height and my graphics guy cranked some out.
  5. 30-35 ft sprit boat - up to 75K

    What's wrong about sleeping on a Henderson? Some of my best sleeps (passouts) have been on a Hendo.
  6. BYC-Mac

    Did cove to the finish in twelve hours fifteen minutes.
  7. BYC-Mac

    Did 2001,2002,2003,2004,2005,2006,2007,2008,2009,2010,2012,2013,2014,2015,2016 on a Henderson 30. Can't remember which was the worst. They are all blending together at this point. 2011 I did it on a FT 10.
  8. BYC-Mac

    That is a other memorable ride. I might still have some bruises from that one. And I'm still taking owner lessons.
  9. BYC-Mac

    We did the race that year on the Hendo. It wasn't survival conditions, but it wasn't a fun ride at all.
  10. BYC-Mac

    10-4

    If your a registered skipper you can see all the other boats certificates. Sign in and go to update your info and there is a link to view certificates.
  12. Henderson 30?

    Speaking of Hendo rig modifications, this is year three of having symetrical spinns on my boat. We gained 9sec/nm in phrf. Burned three seconds of it in a longer pole. In hindsite we should have burned all nine seconds in the pole. We carry a jibtop, 1.5oz frac and .6 masthead. We are heading back to the sprit next year.
  13. Henderson 30?

    I agree with what both you guys are saying. I'm not sure how they were getting headstay tension in the pictures I posted for all the reasons you said.
  14. Henderson 30?

    Her's a couple of pics of a runnerless Hendo.
  15. Lake Erie Anarchy Part 2

    For those that like distance racing, the Trans Erie race is making a comeback this year.The race will be August 25th and will run from Grosse Ile to Cleveland (course to be determined). Hope to see some of you there.
