      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. The plastic ones don't shrink in the cold . . . . . . . . . or so I've heard.
  2. Back when dwarf throwing was banned the first people to complain were the dwarfs who were forced into a huge pay cut. Apparently it was all tax free cash into the back pocket plus a pile of free beer. After all, who wants to declare their occupation as " dwarf wrangler " ?
  3. Well Dylan, next time you have to head up to the mast to tuck in a reef while doing 20 knots, please leave the camera running. It should pick up either a thud or a splash. It was your British navy that invented the phrase " ship shape ". Then again I think one of them also said " kiss me Hardy ". Must have been a long voyage.
  4. Then there's the pile of spaghetti they leave on deck. Tread on that at 20 knots and its hello boys with pike and a flatbag dismount.
  5. They would not have understood what it means to leave a boat at anchor in bad weather. Similarly, they did not understand that a roll up inflatable can't handle towing something that big. No wonder it fell apart. The solution would have been to buy an outboard mount and bolt it to the transom. A 5hp could push that thing along at 4 knots. That's impressive for a 3ksb.
  6. These people are proof of that old cliche - " If it looks too good to be true then it probably is " All that boat of theirs is good for is being a cheap dock queen. They are at the start of several heartbreaking and expensive years of boat rebuilding.
  7. Yeah, but what a great conversation starter.
  8. Moe Larry Curly and Shemp Resistance is futile
  9. That would have to be the stupidest boat video I have ever seen.
  10. It looks like the cameraman has taken a fancy to that pert little derriere. You can see it featured now in all the dive shots while the titties, real or otherwise, are barely seen.
  11. Interesting stool. I made one just like it in high school in 1973 or somewhere there. Still got mine.
  12. That kid would have had a double serve before starting work. It shows.
  13. Vegemite = brain food
  14. This change of plan means they will be sailing around 12,000 miles next year. Chances are they don't realize how much that long a voyage can wear down any boat.
  15. Didn't Big Julie say that to Cassius ?
