      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. Ian, that's okay. I know Milly would like more keels but for the moment, this keel belongs to a 110. If that changes I'll throw it in the back of the car and bring it to her. I see now that Pasta514 covered this answer...

    Also...if you're handy, my buddy has one in Falmouth, MA that I think he'd part with happily for cheap. I forget what happened to it but I think it needs fiberglass repair. Let me know and I can ask him.

    There's this Vector in Nebraska too: http://sailingtexas.com/201801/svector105.html $2,250 No, Nebraska is not a typo.

    That could be fun to play with. I sent the link to my bro who was looking for something like that.

    I definitely like the camel bak idea or the flask idea. Florida may definitely be different and you can imagine how strict they are here in Utah. Need I say more? The Ranger was cool about it but it's a sailing program boat so we do have to be extra careful. The Ranger explained that it's pretty much automatic trouble for the Laser sailors if caught since the beers are in the cockpit or within easy reach of the sailor.

    Not to be a party pooper but be careful of the cooler in the cockpit. Any harbor master or coastie who doesn't realize you're the least likely boat on the water to hurt anybody may nail you for alcohol close to the operator. I was driving a whaler for RC here and an empty rolled near the steering wheel, tossed into the boat from one of the Laser sailors. He was fine but I almost got busted (long talk with the Ranger) just in an effort to keep empties from falling in the water. Otherwise, sounds like a fun way to go!

    Cute boat but $2k!!!
  8. Snipes are usually popular if it's adults, high booms, no spins. If it's kids, 420s.

    That's okay, you don't have to be, but those boats have gotten tens of thousands of kids on the water and that works for me. I have gotten more people excited about sailing with Lasers and those people never give a thought to the rumors of the value of the boat nor the build quality, they just enjoy the experience of sailing and the social side.

    Glad it worked out! Hopefully you get the money you need for the coach boat.

    I love that site. I bought three Lasers off of there a couple of years ago, they're used in our sailing program.
  12. Stupid Airports

    That's the one...Trusted Traveler, Known Traveler Number, or Global Entry. It was weird going to the airport and going into the back office of the security. I got a bit unnerved because they were retaining and questioning somebody in a room nearby but it ended up being a quick interview. One of the few times I'm glad I've led a boring life when it comes to police/security.

    JFK is why I got the International Traveler clearance...I forget what it's officially called, Trusted Traveler or something like that. I stood in line in customs for so long there that the next week I submitted the forms for international customs clearance.
  14. Stupid Airports

    That's true...but I was just connecting on a flight to Finland and it was a little touch and go that I'd make it even with a long layover due to the maze I had to travel first.

    I think it's a metallic lined wrapper that's the issue.
