      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. 2017 Race to Alaska

    When asked, "Body is great! I feel really good. My hands are a bit blistered, but not too bad. My mind is in its happy place. I've enjoyed this."
  2. Hi there,

    My name is Guus Broekman from Amsterdam. Me and some friends have bought the Whisper. The boat that you talked about earlier in 2013. It is a Frers design and was custom built in Connecticut. I would like to come in contact because we are going to sail her back to Amsterdam this juli! Would you like to join us for a day trip and tell us something about her? Please let me know. 

    You could add me on FB as well if that is easier.

    Maritime greetings,

    Guus Broekman

      Congratulations on the boat! I'm happy to hear she is going to a new home. I no longer live in the area, but happen to be in Maine now. I might be able to find some time to come out for a sail in the next few days. Whisper is a great boat, powerful and fun to sail. A few things about her; her holding tank is VERY small, the shrouds need to be VERY tight to stabilize the mast. Feel free to contact me here or on Facebook. I have an american flag head band on in my profile picure.

      Best regards

    I really like how her sheer line matches the trough between her bow wave and quarter wave.

    I agree that a flatter sheer would have improved her looks, I suppose while we are at it, I would have liked a bit more curve in the stem to better balance the stern. That severe spring really does make her stand out in the harbor.

    The pictures are in a slide show and i can not seem to make them come to you guys so you will have to go to them. Just something from the drawing board over at Wylie Design Group. http://www.wyliedesigngroup.com/wylie_design_group/drawing_board/Pages/National_Science_Foundation.html#0 And how about some love for Windward Passage

    I got an Islander Excalibur 26. Its and old design, 60s or 70s, but it was way ahead of its time. Fin keel, balanced rudder, flatish midsection. People claim they are good in light air. Rates low 200's. If all things go as planed... ill be raceing it next summer. This ones not mine...and it says Excalibur 27...idk...same boat though

    Does anyone have a trailer for a 26 foot boat that I could rent/barrow for a weeked? The boat is 26' long 7'8" wide and 4'8" deep and 4000lbs. I think almost anything with jackstand-like pads would work.
