      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.

  2. I caught that too. It is an interesting question given the renderings to date have had curved boards. Also interesting that the rendering now on Verdier's website does not show the boards. If I had to guess, the condensed time frame resulted in moving to a simpler solution as they did not have the time to work through the engineering issues which would arrise. The theme of this build appears to be "keep it simple and proven" so we can make this years Sydney-Hobart start. Mods can always be done later...
  3. Thank you to Clean, Meredith and Forss for getting those pictures out. Is it me or does it look like more than two weeks worth of "loose ends" to tie up? My father was at the yard last week (9th) and when asking about the launch was told they should be in by the end of September, but Cleans pictures from Monday (15th) seem to show a good deal of work still to be done before the boat can leave the shed. In looking at the pictures, is it typical on a supermaxi to not fair the taped joints in the cockpit before painting or is that some kind of illusion in image 9?
