      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.

    Need to lively up this place.

    Celebrating the new forum format, or something.
  3. Not true about California, I bought lab grade Xylene just yesterday, about $10/pt. Also Goof-off and similar are available.
  4. The crew on deck appears to be holding on to the jib sheet. Maybe they could try a winch or cleat next time. Four on board and none are doing anything of much use. Conditions aren't really severe. Comments on the YouTube page are mostly nonsense.
  5. Tillerpilot

    Half the SHTP 2016 was equipped with the Pelagic. Some are using just the drive, others the whole controller + drive. Steers very well on or off the wind. Can be interfaced to NMEA to steer to apparent wind. Best bang for buck bar none. I won the 2015 LongPac with mine, and placed first in Division with one (plus a backup ram I didn't use).

    Looking good even with clothes on.
  7. California Coastal Races

    SSS is running the Great Longitudinal Pacific Race in 2017 (July 5 start). 200 nm out and back to Longitude 126' 40min W. Also, SH Farallones, Drakes Bay 1 + 2, Half Moon Bay coastal races. http://sfbaysss.org/main/racing/
  8. 348 Boats Entered For TBF

    Oh yeah that Cal 40 -- ran aground in the sand just a few yards short of the rocks, and then was pinned there by the wind until he could get his sails down and motor off backwards. Hopefully no more damage done than the loss of some paint on the keel. There is a pic in the post here http://sfbaysss.org/main/3bf-2017-view-from-the-race-deck/
  9. 348 Boats Entered For TBF

    Please enter finish time/data using the tool on your Registration at Jibeset. Also, we have a report that the Mull 30 "Lively Lady" was struck in a port/starboard incident by one of the 3BF fleet in Racoon Strait , identity not known. If you are the party in question, please contact the RC.
  10. 348 Boats Entered For TBF

    CCW was the way to go. A pack of Moores led the way. Biggest parking lot ever seen out front of Berkeley, CW boats heading south. There are going to be a lot of people very unhappy that they were over early, crossing the start/finish line before their start, which is banned in the SIs. The last finisher was at around 1840. Please fill out your finish time sheets, the RC was working hard to record sail numbers and times, and taking time-stamped digital photos, but it got super busy there for a while.
  11. I always thought those letters were fake, until it happened to me. Overly intellectual article http://www.theatlantic.com/health/archive/2016/03/straight-men-and-lesbian-porn/472521/ Boothy used to have a saying for this.
  12. Relevant sub-reddit: https://www.reddit.com/r/BigBoobsWithFriends/
  13. Well I have some expertise on the mermaid side. And other stuff too.. I'm sure that you intend the mermaids to be topless. Don't you? And you want a pic of two human females in a pose to be adapted into a painting of two mermaids, I take it. Remember, the concept of 'nudity' does not apply to mermaids, as they are non-human. There are a ton of soft-core/glamour sites that might or might not be considered porn that could help you out. A 5-second google search found this this and this. If you need more advanced help, perhaps a prayer to Mighty Ku might work!
  14. Moby Dick, Illustrated

    A new illustrated edition of Moby Dick is being prepared with amazing illustrations. I'm supporting this project on Kickstarter, and will get a hardcover copy in return. The price to support is very reasonable. I thought it might interest the S/A literati. The kickstarter: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/evandahm/moby-dick-illustrated See the illustrations here: http://mobydickillustrated.tumblr.com/ Some examples:
  15. San Francisco-- The Cow Palace

    Would the Tattoo Expo and Hemp Con still be welcome then?
