      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.

    I've been insured with AM for the last 7 years initialy as they where they only ones I could get to cover transport of a strip planked yacht, was previously with CM with other boat, was notified they would not be offering cover this renewal after insisting on a survey last year. Contacted CM, offered less cover on lower value for $700 more than AM premium last year. Will be chasing other quotes this week .

    The Skandia money I believe was the contract payout for the final 2 years which has now gone? Audi sponsorship was only a fraction for those 2 years so too carry on as naming rights they would have to stump a fair bit more, so they have had cheap exposure for a couple of years and now pulled the plug goss going round Gtown descision made 3 months ago?

    Got to agree think the twin rudder angle is causing the nose dive and the big kite looks to big for the boat,the rig looks pretty big but going too big with the kite it also becomes inefficient my 2c

    So will Wharro now be the first Melbourne boat home and which of the rest is going to give it a shake on handicap given the latest forcast, in the battle of the 50 footers who will be first in for bragging rights? Given the latest forecast could this be Bruce's year with a 40 footer coming home with the breeze on the Chutzpah? Good luck to all the Vics and safe sailing will be stuck @ working following the tracker this year
