      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. Syd-Hobart Yachts, Where are they Now?

    Didnt Windward Passage 2 become " Il Moro De Venezia" ? What happened to Cookson 12 No Fearr? I have fond memories of her... We won everything in 1996 except the Sydney - Hobart that i missed because my misses (ex misses) at the time wouldnt let me go!!!!! Was a rocketship!!! Last i heard she had a sweptback rig and used for shorthanded racing. Was arguably the best C12 ever.
  5. Syd-Hobart Yachts, Where are they Now?

    What happened to Great News the ior Farr 50? Flying Colours Steinman 52 last I heard she was in a paddock....? And the last Bumblebee that won the hobart race...Ian Murray Skippered? BTW Didnt Hollywood buy the Hobart winner Rosebud a few years ago...What happened to her? Did she even leave the USA?
  6. Aussie pocket maxis

    What would be fantastic is if all the dinosaurs at jurrasic park ie Airlie Beach once a year had a race or 2 say a passge race and a big windward leeward to decide who shall have bragging rights for 12 months as the best and fastest maxi in the area...i would go to just see the old girls go hard again !
  7. Aussie pocket maxis

    Drumbeat is in the Whitsundays as Spank Me. One of four ex Bondy's boats there. Oh is it......i thought Spank me was an ex whitbread maxi renamed? Are steak n kidney and australia 1 still in Airlie for sale too? As far as I know the only ex Whitbread maxi is British Defender. Steak & Kidney & Aus 1 still here. Boomerang was Ondine VII. Is'nt THE CARD there also...she was a whitbread maxi!

    What ever happened to Bondy's last maxi "drumbeat"? Last time i ever heard of it,it crossed the finish line with line honors in the Syd/Hobart yacht race.....bondy stepped off and basically went straight to to court and i never heard what happened to the boat? If memory serves me correctly she was a Pedrick design and had the revolutionary "whale tail keel and rudder" well it was at that time "revolutionary"! Also what happened to "Sovereign" she was a beautiful maxi ?
  10. i550

    looks like it goes alright downwind in the videos but how does it go against similar sized boats on a regular race track? dont get me wrong it looks the shit just wondering if it is actually competetive?
  11. i550

    Thanks for the feed back guys i shall let him know!I think if he buys the spider he will still build the i550 anyway as a work promo...he has a lasercutting buisness and it would be a great example! Do you guys know much about the boat he is looking at? its called SPYDERMAN?
  12. i550

    I was wondering and TTB you would probably know........... Is a or "your i550 quicker than or competetive with the spider 22's? the reason i ask is a mate of mine has the i550 plans but is also looking at a spider22 to sail now Keen to hear yor reply
  13. i550

  14. i550

    nice one mojo if that were the case(scotty could get the cad conversions)i would seriously consider building a i550 also! by the way TTB how is the "green" one coming along? will it be at the qld sporty titles in june too? are you still coming? and how much do you think your boat has cost you so far?
