      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. Kudos to Comanche breaking the 1997 TP MultiHull Record as well as setting the TP Monohull Record. Epic stuff. Well done everyone involved on the first 4 boats Set new bars. Respect!
  2. Yes- They left them at the dock.
  3. What's up with Rio 100? Tracker has her down to 10 knots for awhile now. Was heading due south as well. Now back to a port tack heading but still slow.
  4. Maserati diving south - interesting. Comanche just truckin' along. Modern speeds of these boats just amazing in comparison to everyone else.
  5. Was out there Thursday. There is a huge crane and barge loaded with rocks on the east side of Queen's Gate. Looks like they are reinforcing things.
  6. Saw the movie last Friday evening in Newport Beach. Very well done. I really liked how the story was presented by each crew member. A real inside and personal look into the incredible adventure.
  7. Go to the N2E Twitter feed to see finish times: @newsfromnosa Press Release: http://socalsailingnews.com/2016/04/the-mod-70-orion-shatters-the-n2e-record/

  14. http://www.startribune.com/obituaries/detail/106667/?fullname=bradley-milton-robinson Brad was a true modern day pioneer in our sailing fraternity. Meeting him 2 summers ago was a treat-- he treated me like he knew me -- I respect him for standing up and pressing on through some true heavy stuff bullshit.
  15. Bob, With all the carbon being used on the project, I am sure things are being isolated more than usual as part of the build process. Is there anything special being done that would not be done if the hull and deck was mainly fiberglass?
