      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.

  6. around the world in a 3'-6"x3'-6" boat

    Deja vu all over again. I took the attached photo around 1976. Drove to Orleans, MA to watch the "Dream" leave to break the trans Atlantic record. Boat was 7-8 feet I believe, skipper a 29 year old family man. I think ten days out a fishing boat spotted him 120 miles out. That was the last anyone ever saw of him.Very sad.
  7. Soft cabin top

    I did quite a bit of re-coring on my Tartan41 about ten years ago. I tried the bridge deck area from below and had a wide open work area. I found it way too hard and messy trying to fight gravity. So I ended up doing most of the side decks, bow, coach roof and cockpit areas from above (much easier). Getting everything faired took a lot of time; however after a complete paint job of the deck and cockpit it looked great (IMO).
  8. Yes, I heard it from a reliable source that he is stoked.
  9. Any truth that DM is interested?
  10. 2015 Sydney to Hobart

    Wow! Congrats to Mr. Fischer!
  11. Vintage Tanton 37' IOR Cruiser

    I knew a guy in 78 that got rid of his Ericson 46 and had a new Tanton 57' Ultra light built. Out of Marblehead, jet black with gold letters on the side "Desperado." Fast He had a Tanton 73/76 (not sure) Ultra light built in the 80s, black, etc. That one is still racing in CA as Velos or something like that. Good looking boats
  12. "Cherubini" hunters... What's the big deal?

    Ever heard of a Cherubini Irwin Galaxy?
