      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. Boots

    I learned a better option for gaiters on the Transat Quebec-St Malo this year and picked up a pair of the Guy Cotten gaiters that can be put on any boot. Used with my dubarry Fastnets I feel invincible. And when after a couple of wet watches i want to switch to my backup west marine rubber boots, i can swap the gaiters over to them and make it through a few more sail changes without my socks getting wet. I just emailed the office in New Bedford and told them what i wanted, they called for a credit card number and for $50US i have gaiters for any boots. http://www.guycotten.com/en/produits/yachting-and-water-sports/accessories/pieds-secs-surbottes-piel-cotten
  2. Gunge in Karver furlers

    The bearing in the bottom of the drum does have some very simple grey grease in the ball bearings. This is likely what you're seeing. Shouldn't be any cause for alarm, I'd just wipe off the excess so it doesn't get all over your other gear. I wouldn't recommend disassembling yourself.
  3. Hope Annapolis went good man! Gonna start keeping the L'Orca group on FB updated, stay tuned.
