      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.

    Well done Claire, keep at it

    So you are not wanting the rewards from gaining a six-pack??? I am sure that putting in that effort, through regular effort at home, will help with many aspects of sailing too! Fish

    Charilie, Keep up the regular practise and it'll come to you. It took me one year to learn how to track stand my mountain bike, with age things take me much more time and effort. Good luck with it all, Fish
  5. Single handed trapeze dinghy design evolution

    Suggest looking at how many boats there are to compete against locally. Had a 3.7 many years ago and there were no others around --> would have been much more fun with competition!

    I disagree with you on this one. If you are trying to avoid paying to advertise your boat here, being a tightarse!, then you get what you deserve. Fish
  7. Prop guards for coach boats

    Can't recommend which ones but just do it and get them fitted, we all make errors (plenty of them in my case). How sill you feel when someone is slashed open? Plenty of regulations when it comes to surf lifesaving: https://www.surflifesaving.com.au/news/slsa-circular-surf-sport-irb-competition--gear-and-equipment-regulations/bulletin-4-12-13-irb-competition--gear-and-equipment-2013.pdf http://www.propellersafety.com/5347/regulations/regulations-standards-developments-propeller-guards/ https://apps.sls.com.au/sites/sls.com.au/files/Lifesaving Gear and Equipment Specifications_1.pdf You are probably smart, the last one mentions "Fit within an SLSA approved propeller guard" so a little searching should get you there. Good luck with it, Fish

  11. What's the hardest dinghy you've sailed?

    Tried a low riding moth, at 330mm hull width with an aluminium mast, in under 6 knots of wind. Not impossible but had to really take notice of what was going on and couldn't expect it to just happen on demand. No nightmare, just a great challenge!
