      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. Comparing Specs

    PM Alex W. I am not sure if everyone heard but Randy Browning, who founded sailboatdata.com, unfortunately passed away earlier this year. A gentleman by the name of Bruce McArthur has taken over.
  2. Comparing Specs

    12 metre, were you ever able to track down an Excel or CSV file?
  3. RORC Caribbean 600

    "Break-break" "Pan-Pan" "Pan-Pan" "Pan-Pan" "Hello all stations this is the Barbudan Coast Guard Station St. John's" "Barbudan Coast Guard Station St. John's" "Barbudan Coast Guard Station St. John's" "At 1645 local Antiguan time, S/V Phaedo was last seen off Nives at position one seven degrees one three decimal one zero minutes north, zero six two degrees four seven decimal three eight minutes west, as the vessel reached exit velocity and is assumed to have entered low earth orbit." "All mariners are requested to keep a sharp lookout and a watchful eye for a touchdown in the area of Anguilla as they turn upwind and begin to slow."
  4. Mast Harness

    Do you know if you can still get these from Lirakis? I have an old one and would like to replace it.
  5. New Cubed - First Supermaxi Since Speedboat

    Love the renderings and lines plans that come from Chevalier, but in discussing some mast, foil, keel, etc. locations with some fellow sailors it led to disagreements on where they were, sure enough the drawing is a little different from reality. Anyone know how they make these drawings?
  6. New Cubed - First Supermaxi Since Speedboat

    Anyone know what those white strops are for that go from the center of transom around the quarter pulpits? The port one looks like it goes forward so I was going to say jack lines but they look too big and the starboard one looks like it stops at the pulpit.
