      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.

    Maybe they just broke one and haven't fixed it yet ?

    aren't all the permissible and commercially available control surface hydraulic valves ,drive clutches and electrical actuators now a matter of public record ? Quick scan of the design rule says they were to be published 150 days out from the Challenger series - anyone got a link ?

    could well be - never read it - occasionally drop in here to see whats up and saw the conversation.

    interesting as the system described uses a "feedback transducer" whereas we all know the feedback was mechanical in nature with the valve being operated between a reference linear actuator and the position of the board. Off my pay scale to comment - just interested to note the context of previous use (cant keel position) and the note that a current AC team is using it as mentioned in the advertising - maybe another application ?? http://www.motioncontrol.co.za/55189n

    She's been for sale with Berthon for a couple of years now, who also had Martella listed for a while but it looks like she has been sold. Thanks for putting the link up about Galicia. No Worries. Intrum Justitia shows up here on the web :http://www.blueboxsailing.com/Whitbread60Blueprint.html The stretched Fortuna had a cruising mod made in Cartagena a few years ago. Think she sails out of Alicante.

    NCB Ireland (otherwise known as ¨Never Coming Back¨ - or - ¨No C**t Bothered¨) Seems like it is still a recent listing ? http://www.cosasdebarcos.com/barco_42187070140149985399565048504548.html

    Do you know if this is the Farr Tokio that sailed in the race or the Swarbrick Tokio that was only used pre race?No idea...The Swarbrick Tokio had an odd keel I think, fin went forwards?? The boat in Chuso's picture is the Farr boat, the Swarbrick's in Helsinki. I read something recently which said that the original Galicia 93 is in Gaeta, Italy but has been ashore for a number of years. Maybe you read about her here ? http://shockwave40.blogspot.com.es/2012/07/galicia-93-pescanova-volvo-60-round.html
