      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.

    Not a lot of FB action since the finish. I would love to hear some details about the ride. I was going to work on Monday eve. and saw them from LSD at heading North about the Harrison/Dever crib. Congrats on the record. Pretty cool.

    Any idea on rough cost for bareboat charter, 50ish feet, turnkey for Transpac? J World is not getting back to me. Thanks.

    I cried at the point of your story when you got your guy back on the boat. We all know full fucking well it coulda been any one of us over the side, and full fucking well how it could have changed for the worse for you guys. I'm goddamn grateful it worked out OK. I can't imagine the emotion before, during and after such events happening. Thanks for any and all lessons learned in this incident. Take care, Jim

    All right. Who bailed, who won and who hated it?
  13. My wife sails with the-then rear commodore of CYC and they have been on the coal dock, rafted, for the last few years on a Farr 40. I think it is all about size and order of finish, but I'm not involved.
  14. Perhaps it's the guy with the grey shorts sporting the male camel-toe? Mamel-toe, if you will.
