      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. I'm going with non functional, even if technically you could steer with it.
  2. Table support slips over mid cockpit traveler beam. Folding leg on other end.
  3. Takes the mast right out of others!
  4. Looking at that picture I'm not sure headsails on or off really made much difference.
  5. I don't think we can answer this question. It reaally depends on how fast you and your crew can do those gybes.
  6. Team West Coast Wild Ones deserves a big thank you from anyone selling an Oday 27 in the near future.
  7. It isn't just sailboats that live or die by stability. Look at the early history of the Alaska Crab fleet and see what lots of weight up high can do. Plenty of other examples out there as well.
  8. This recent thread has a bit about continuing obstructions.
  9. Except the rudder starts at the waterline and the keel starts at the deepest part of the hull.
  10. It looks like the other front fell off.
  11. I thought the merchant ship turned around long after the collision.
  12. Boat sank in 10' of water but nothing is damaged except the bow?
  13. That is the protest committee.
  14. There are only so many things one person, no matter how cool, can keep track of! And it wasn't Alice, just pictures of her garbage.
  15. All I can say is we are now 90+ comments in on what is a discussion on # 2 above. The beginner also needs something about mark roundings, and obstructions. The rules should be simple but in application they don't seem to be, Look how many very long threads there are on what seem like simple rules questions.
