      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.

    It is just me, or we all looking on the deck side of the hull.... it is just taken out of the mold upside down. I have just read in the article about new Gitana open60 on daily sail...... Once the structure has been bonded in, we’ll be able to join the hull and deck - a phase which should be completed in April. This phase promises to quite unique - it will be a first for the teams as Gitana 16 is built split horizontally along her entire length. Usually, we complete the deck and hull. Without going into too much detail, that’s linked to the [shape of the] hull below the waterline." The same is with picture of the mold for new Vibrac..... Because if this is mold for the bothom part of the hull, than visualization is totaly wrong.
  9. Seascape 18

    HI, Some more photos. I had pleasure to sailed with it. Realy nice and easy to sail. The concept of "keep it simple" is excellent. It is chep and easy to handle. You all will probably notice that everythnig could be more sporty, bat it would not be so simple with so much fun..... For more questions is better to ask Andraz or Krisjan on contact@seascape18.com Just for the note. I took my girlfrend with me on test sailing with seascape18. It was first time for her to deal with spinaker. It hande it very well. After day of sailng with this beauty, she said. "We could own this". It was first time from her mouth, for any boat lp, rok
