      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. Hard dinghy as a tender and a small sailboat for kids

    Also, look at Chesapeake Light Craft. Their Eastport prams are all over the chesapeake. Epoxy/plywood, done neatly, can be very light and pretty tough. Not a planing boat, but sail pretty nicely. B&B designs are nice. I've only sailed their Core Sound 17. Nice. I think the basic hull form is related to the Spindrifts. You'll get more capacity w/ the prams though.
  2. Best "Not a Truck" tow vehicle

    Go old school. Cop car, cop tires.... Listen to Elwood! :-)
  3. Coolboats to admire

    Cool boat #1: The old plywood Sailfish I learned to sail on. With the original cotton sail. I think the Sailfish was overcanvassed relative to its later kin the Sunfish. On a broad reach, that thing would just skip along, the daggerboard humming like a little outboard. I gather they are not common anymore.
