      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. Older well known IOR Boats

    Kiwi mini ton. Holland design built by Kiwi boats. This is the only one built as a single skin no core. Great light air boat.
  2. The lesson should be how quickly a situation can degrade into a really terrible outcome. Having fun and boom no boat. I bet all good sailors. I'm amazed at how smart we are at analyzing what they did wrong.

    Grace to the family. Grace to the family.

  5. Locura

    I see discussion about the Soverel 43 Locura. Always wondered what happened to the original 1981 39?
  6. upgrade Square-top mainsail

    Interesting topic have a Holland mini tonner. We added a a flat top main with a flicker. Have to say in the 8 to 12 range made us real tough. You might wonder that on old main driven Ior boats this might be a good option.
  7. Dr. Dan

    Another active sailor who gave many the opportunity to sail on a cool boat gone.
  8. Deep Sadness - we are not bulletproof

    Yes sir. Words cannot make it better. Hope the families can find comfort. Yes sir. Words cannot make it better. Hope the families can find comfort.

  10. Locura Soveral 43

    If I am not incorrect there were 4 Locura's. The first being a green Soverel 30 with a very tall bendy rig like JB Express, I think this boat is now Wild Cherry. The second was green as well and was a 40 that had a distinctive extended flat stern, and a very tall bendy rig. The third one was white and became Dawn Patrol, It was raced in the 1983 Ad Cup with Ted Turner on the helm, along with Mark. The last one was possibly a 50 that did not get campaigned long. The Zingara boat that was referred to was Virginia Leigh, which was refused by the owner. I grew up in that era in Palm Beach and Mark was all us young guys hero. Great time in sailing to watch the new Soverels hit the water. Mark's dad the Commander Bill was a very hard competitor, a great friend of our family. Sad that both are gone
