      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. Chines in yacht design

    Plumb bows I can live with reverse bows just don t seem right square top mains yea more sail I'm in and Chines make me think of homebuilt fireballs or steel cruising boats and I like to go fast I just believe you should look good while doing it and while I'm sharing my preferences for style on the water the modern cruise ships look like ugly wedding cakes or lost apartment blocks give me the old Brittania QE or even the QE 2 even the titanic looked good even if it couldn't turn
  2. Which 30ft performance cruiser?

    Sounds like the Andrews 28 would fill your bill pretty nicely I race against one regularly with my Antrim and its heads up to who will win the Antrim luv of my life is definitely not for cruising the Andrews 28 could quite easily handle it as it has a separate head modest kitchen and decent headroom the cockpit which I believe is where most day sailers and racers spend the majority of their time is large (modern) the boat surfs and is light to steer as much as I like my Antrim if I was sailing longer races or wanting to spend a week on board the Andrews would be it and you could easily trailer it to Florida and sail it to the Caribbe unfortunately they only made three
