      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. Have a go at the bend in Trams mast! Check stays on?
  2. mystery main

  3. The last Diamond Cutter was a timber Davidson One Ton built in NZ and sailed across. One of the best boats I've had the joy of driving. I too have watched the video of her demise several times - shame that one. I did plenty of miles south and north, one Moolooolaba we had 9 drivers and 5 guessers, pressure was on to keep numbers up or you were off! The previous Diamond Cutter was a Peterson37 and the one before that was a Joubert Brolga33
  4. what is it?

    This is Sailing Anarchy for F...s sake NOT some big power boat forum!
  5. Spinnaker Pole End Troubleshooting

    Don't store the pole attached to the stanchion like that. The only lubrication the pole ends need are a good piss on and then hot water to rinse. The acid gets rid of the junk and the hot water, well that cleans up where you dripped.
  6. yeah, getting slowly turned into a cruiser.Would love to catchup and exchange info on One Dog. Can you send a PM?
  7. Rolex Wild Oats XI

    AC45s gone

    I spoke with one owner of a 1tonner at my club, he's discounted going due to the costs involved. Happy just doing twilights around the harbour. boat hasn't been offshore for years.

  13. "Heaven Can Wait" 24 hour Yacht Race

  14. Dick Carter design boats

    Ydra was built in Germany by A&R out of 1/4" aluminum. Imagine that. The Italian boat, for Mrs Spaccarelli was sailed by Beilken, the sailmaker. She was on the way of winning the world One Ton in 72, when the forestay broke. She won the next year in Sardinia. But all eyes were on Ganbare. The Texas One Ton came after, I think about 40 were built. Admitedly a cross between Ydra and Ganbare. Whay a wonderfull design, i never seen so cute lines !!! No better quality scan ? Bye the way beilken sailed Gumboots then who was the next Ganbare generation by Jeremie Rogers no ? No better quality scan. Unfortunately. Tina has also very sweet lines. Look at the sections! If you can stand bad scans, I can also upload the early Carter 's body plans for Noryema and Red Rooster. Yes please.
