      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. Boat for Atlantic Circuit/Circumnav

    I testsail (for friend, who wants to-do short-handed circimnavigation) this particular Dehler last spring in Nederland - super, super, super but pricerange is different! Top quality (old Delhled, not the new one - Hanse-made!) - top price. http://www.devalk.nl/en/yachtbrokerage/150039/DEHLER-41-DS.html
  2. Boat for Atlantic Circuit/Circumnav

    But, for a boat crossing oceans - particularly a "smallish boat" - a large cockpit might fairly be viewed as a liability. 10 points! For long distance short-handed sailing and "live a board at anchor" in best smaller deep PROTECTED cocpit! "No sports at all!" Two masted (more is safer); center cocpit; hard dodger, better deck-saloon or pilothouse; cutter-rig with self-tacking jib; shallow draft (liftin keel); aluminium etc, etc. OK, it's "my dream"... and experience. But this kind yacht isn't cheap. Or are She very old Lady... Boat is You'r Home for months or years - dry land You have windows, curtains etc, You watch out, sitting on the chair. Are You really want live in cellar? 50-80K euros is big money. One type - or make-model - in this range money: British quality Southerley! Model 115 is in this price-range. http://www.boatshed.com/southerly_115-boat-203053.html
