      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. What he said. Black Soo! http://sailinganarchy.com/classifieds/show-ad/?id=3176
  2. The feature film, in post production stars Colin Firth as Donald Crowhurst and Rachel Weisz as Clare Crowhurst. It looks pretty interesting.
  3. Nicely done, JF! We look forward to hearing how the boat did, what you might change. Did you use the waterballast system?
  4. Probably hard with the engine running all the time. I don't see any handles.
  5. Twatwaffle and shitmitten are new for me. Thank you..
  6. Thanks Moon, hadn't seen that pic yet. I like it. So does the EC require you to move the boat a certain distance across sand? Could you roll it over a few foam pool noodles? Baja dinghy wheels? Tom, I just read about the gator's tooth and I see what you mean. Some day, on some boat, I hope I can take a cruiserly shot at it.
  7. Hey Pan, It does have water ballast. 80 lbs per side. Tom, You mean the board is heavy or you think the whole boat is heavy? I have no plan to do the Everglades Challenge, but I have heard some talk of developing RAID events on the west coast.
  8. I've enjoyed reading about all these micro cruisers quite a bit. Here's my new favorite which I don't think has been mentioned, River of Grass by JF Bedard. https://www.bedardyachtdesign.com/designs/sail/15-rog-micro-cruiser/ https://www.facebook.com/BedardYachtDesign/photos/?tab=album&album_id=1156886184432078
  9. Although we got the motor running, we eventually pulled it and the new owner repowered. Here's how it looked on the first day of cleaning.
  10. But you wanted to know about the underside. Here's the skeg.
  11. It sails out of Vallejo now.
  12. I always thought it was a really good looking boat.
  13. I've got loads. Bought the boat at auction for $500 and spent a year putting her back together until passing the project off to another sailor who finished the job.
  14. Interesting to discover that the trailing edge of the keel was wood.
