      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 a fun platform to learn and tweak and try things. You will be kicking ass in no time. Just a learning curve, and being open to trying different things, and having FUN!! Weather depending, this weekend will include #2 testing. A sail I told myself I would never own for the boat.. We'll see!!

    Or I can shoot you some photos of Muffin.. Pretty easy. We convert the fore guy to a tack line, lower the pole, throw some guys on it. Good to go. https://get.google.com/albumarchive/100094681587997126638/album/AF1QipPomZ0Ar4NbU2m-laUnLFzzF4u4JYYEM0LDuKkB/AF1QipOM1l2BUXyzSl9CLBJ_c10hk0rRmN7boJv1b9Yd

    117 with a new rudder. 120 before. Scratch with a J-29, which is a great competitor and baseline for SC 33 (Muffin) performance. keep tuning!

    More horsepower, and a way to get it onto the track. The boat looks pretty!

    The old Santa Cruz 33 Shitter will be up there to see what we can break!

    No Problem!! Good times when it is windy in Elliott Bay!! Free hotdogs and sketchy mark roundings mean summer in Seattle! Thanks!
  11. For a number of years I owned SC-33  #6 named I-5 and raced quite a few times against Muffin.  It was always a pleasure to race with such good competition.  Finally sold the boat when my bod just could't take it any more.  True the boats need to be stiffened up to perform at their peak with present sail fabrics and technology.  Is it worth the expense of modification?   Yes, definitely.  Any boat from the board of the Wizard is fast and will keep up with most of the modern designs.  A few mods makes them just as fast or faster.   What makes them better is that you will have a boat you can stand up in.   A head that can be closed off for privacy (the girls love this) and a cabin that you can get into when you need a break from the rain, cold and drudge of the Pacific NW.  Yes you can go cruising as well.  

    A SC-33 in good shape will sell for about $25K    Spend a few K more to stiffen up the hull, and you end up with a boat that will kick some serious ass for a lot less.  It's no wonder why owners keep them forever and they keep on piling up pickle dishes.  Some may think the investment in Muffin was foolish.  No way, it was very smart indeed. Get one if you can. .

    Muffin had a fun, long, entertaining at times, frustrating at times event. Oh, and met up again with the guy who first bought the boat from Bill Lee! Swiftsure never disappoints!

    Seems to me there are enough SC33's in the Long Beach area to get a one design start....

    Yea, the ring frame in Rev. 1 ties the keel frame, bulkheads and mast step together, and the 'rollbar' does infact go between the windows, to stiffen that tall cabin up a bit when the fat crew members are bouncing around on deck.
  15. Santa Cruz 33

    You mean these? Rev. 1.0 was the mast step and bulkhead deal Rev. 2.0 was the roll bar and integrated hatch garage
