      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. Coconut Grove got hit hard. Large sail boat in the parking lot of sailing club. Email said bottom floor is destroyed
  2. Talked with someone, last night. at the YC who has inside knowledge of the new GOES satellite. He said we, public and news media, are only seeing 10% of what it can do. Can't wait to see at least 50%.
  3. This will be my tenth hurricane. I moved to central east Fl. because the chance of storms was less. This will be the forth since I have been here, if we get this one. Miami has one since Ieft nota has some very good advise, some of his don'ts, I learned the hard way.
  4. I'm not convinced that the Fl. West Coast is off the hook on this one.
  5. I have metal panels. Had them in Miami for Andrew also. Quite heavy but worth the effort. It's very hot today 95 and very humid. The 7.9 goes on the trailer Thursday AM and then inside. After that it's help at the YC. Had our annual ladies regatta planned for this weekend. Don't think it will happen.
  6. Putting up some shutters today. To hot to do many at onetime. I vote we move hurricane season to Jan.
  7. I have an outboard. However, as I get older and do less one design the inboard might be nice. I've had mine for 19 years and just converted to roller furling, which is great for double handed sailing Go the S2 7.9 web site. Hundreds of post there. Just do a search for the answer to ant question you have.
  8. I have a friend who brought a 7.9 from Cal. to Fl. no issues. I have trailered mine 25 + times with no issue. I hardly think an officer will stop you over being 6in.. over the limit. I had an officer tell me that they had more important to worry about.
  9. Know this boat well, in the same harbor with my boat. They really did a nice job of fixing it up. I believe the sails only have two or three races on them.
  10. Paul Lindenberg is alive and well in Melbourne, Fl. He is putting the finishing touches on a 14ft. sailing skiff he built from wood, with the help of friends. A work of art, can't wait to see it sailing.
  11. I stand corrected.You are right, Creole Cooking became Bad Penny. Mouse is still in Melbourne, new owner spent mega bucks restoring, But I have never seen it off the dock.
  12. If I remember right Creole Cooking became Mouse. I remember doing a Father's Day Regatta on Bad Penny. We sailed side by side, dead down, with Five Speed for about 8 miles. Both of us planeing. Great ride.
  13. Starstruck is now Slippery Ghost, in Melbourne. Gary Smith built #12, I believe. # 11 just showed up in Melbourne will have to find the name. I believe it's Boondoggle, or something like that. Fast Lane went to Ohio and was called Sea Turtle, I believe it's, was for sale. Lost track
  14. Delos is getting boring. La Vag has got a Cat. Not interested As long as Megan stays on Doodles, I'm good. If she goes, I'm out.
  15. I WOULD NOT go 500 miles off shore with the kick up rudder and I have sailing 7.9's since 1982.
