      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.

    Heads up pal; you won't get more than two Bundies for a lobster ($20) You can buy a slab of Bundy at Dan Murphys today for $65.00 = $2.70 per can. Think of that when you're 'enjoying' a gold plated cold one in G-Town. well....just goes to show " you're doing it wrong !"

    I Influence everyone...come to think of it I should sue !!!

    Really Clean? beau Geste is born in AKL Spain and racing in AUS as a shakedown before taking on the real mini-maxi fleet in the Med. Fixed it for you Gybeset.
  6. Beau Geste

    thats funny...I dont remember sitting beside you on the rail the year it was commisioned! nor 2 other years I raced on it! anyway...I dont give a rats....I was only stating that 97 and BG were 2 diff boats commisioned by 2 different people
  7. Beau Geste

    wrong twice?? just because i quoted Bribon's design number ( 97s successor) doesnt make me wrong. oh and by the way, I think you will find that it was named 97 as Strachan had bussiness dealings in HK...doesnt mean that kwok had anything to do with it ....as you were implying that Strachan may had purchased it from him...so stop twisting the story to try and make yourself right ! and Gybe. stop editing your posts anfter others reply... btw giddy mr. wrong (twice) you are about to come undone again "In the lead was Ninetyseven, the new 47ft IMS yacht owned by a syndicate of Australian and Hong Kong businessmen" _______________________________________________-- actually this 'research' caper is a right bugger! Except for Hong Kongs Ciel III in 1973, thats the lexcen predecessor of larger Gingko/Apollo ad cuppers So i'm thinking Beau Geste has the right 'bloodlines' to win in 2013

    good to see you finally did some research on the matter it was early 90s the boat (changed hands) went on to win Line Honours design #304 !
  9. Beau Geste

    97 was commisioned by an Australian , the yacht has nothing to do with Karl what so ever
  10. Beau Geste

    Can anyone fill us inn on what happened to the Sydney 38 Zen on her delivery home ? Early reports say she lost her rudder and half her keel somewhere around point Hicks
  12. Melbourne Big Boat Fleet

  13. Melbourne Big Boat Fleet

    geee..you guys are awesome !!! contributing much to the sport are we???? Plenty Nudge, but no longer contributing to the upkeep of the ridiculous infrastructure that surrounds Skandia/Audi/No Sponsor/FOS. The murmur has become a roar but sadly, no one in Geelong can hear it. well come on flat bag...tell us what how you've contributed to the sport lately..
  14. Melbourne Big Boat Fleet
