      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.

    My sweetheart has a younger sister she loves very much. And my soon-to-be daughter-in-law dearly loves her mom who is very ill. From my rough-hewn perspective as a male of the species, I believe your words have captured the essence of the magical bond that the luckiest of women share with their sisters and their moms. Catherine will live forever in the memories of the people who love her. But I cannot imagine her eternal light burning any brighter that it does in the heart of her sister. Chins up... B2S

    More on the H30...Here's a pic and specs for one that was acquired by an Anarchist in the PNW. The asking price was between $15k-$20k.

    The Humbolt 30 is another nifty Mull design. Do a Forum search for Mull and/or Humbolt and you'll find more than one discussion about the boat, the designer and Alan H's ideas about resurrecting the Humbolt 30 molds, which are stored somewhere up the NorCal coast... BTW, great story Haji. When are you going to write the book about the first half of your life?
