      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. I have only crossed the Atlantic a few times but unless Poseidon favors Hanse Yachts I can think of many others, Hanse 505 isn't a bad choice IMHO. Out of available new 50 ish footers I would rank it mid tier for a transatlantic. Very hard to pass up on the many, many lightly used euro yachts available for the same price as a new Hanse 505. X Yachts - Just about anything from Finland, Sweden is sweetness! Actually my IMHO brand for best all around bang for the Euro is a new semi custom Italia. For the new boat buyer Italia is a definite sit down and put the deal on paper boat. Hanse isn't bad but there are better choices IMHO.
  2. Lawyer!!!!! This isn't an episode of LA Law....It will not be solved in an hour and all too often there are other issues that friends do not know about. Credit card debt is a huge red flag....Lawyer up now.
  3. Ugly?...well ok you are right. Musk is making the statement that there is no radiator..... Could have done it better.
  4. Have an employee farther down this road. They had missed some payments on credit cards but nothing else. Was not a divorce. He contacted each creditor directly and explained the situation. He claimed that almost all were willing to do something. However he only told me the Discover Card details. Went from 30 percent ( missed payments ) to a 13 percent loan. The advice I keep hearing is to call the creditors directly.
  5. All righty I will add.. For the Original Poster- (OP) Check out Viper threads and their web site. IMHO the best internet fleet building for both local and national that I have seen. Multi fleet building is a bit different but it appears that the Viper altitude works very well. How long to go from water to 95 kilometers per. hour?.....I am sure he meant kph not mph!
  6. Strange first post but I like the material. A lot of sailors just get tired of racing slow boats. I got a deal on a Tornado and it just completely changed my outlook. New or older design multi between 20 - 25 feet that EASILY fits your budget is the sweet spot in sailing. Fast is a lot more fun.
  7. I need much more proof! I just have not made up my mind in the Perry VS Swain cage match.......perhaps interior photos of the boats might help..... Look if BS gets Bob to post more pics it is not all that bad!
  8. If I was broke and needed transportation those cats are exactly what I would take.
  9. I definitely want to hear this story. I can see it done without help. He was Engineering and had already climbed all through all sorts of places inside the lower decks and hull. Enough canned food for a week and only found on a night he ventured out. I saw suicide by jumping off, jumping off and swimming to a pier and going AWOL but never hiding ON the ship.....Now does he get a Medical and therefore an honorable discharge?
  10. Couldn't Jeremy just punch someone again instead of sabotaging Richard's car for off season publicity?
  11. Bob Perry has a used Farr 40 mast that is not broken
  12. If you have $769 go to Dell outlet and get a 7569 then download World of Warships.....
  13. Btw if going cheap go chromebook. I got to play with one and it is pretty good. Windows is not for the new low end laptops, 2 in 1 etc
  14. SSD not likely to break Little record player in your laptop...much more likely to break
  15. Also are you a member of a vicious biker gang? Maybe a member of the Kung Fu Klub? If so best of luck finding YOUR man. Bryan was just a poster here. Not an owner. Not in the sailing biz. Not even beer can race crew.... Definitely not one of us.
