      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. Sailing La Vagabonde

    I always miss the good stuff. I can’t find it. If anyone does or has pictures of the upside down cat or her butt let me know.

    How’s the second boat coming along?
  3. Sailing La Vagabonde

    I can’t find the video where the robbed an upside down cat. Anyone have a link?
  4. Two sailors and dogs rescued after 5 months

    There appears to be someone half way up the mast in the pictures. the ladies look very healthy and clean in the pictures. Not what I would expect someone who was drifting around for five months trapped on a little boat. Something is very fishy.

    Looks great!!
  6. You would be shocked how fast they rebuild when over 60% of your economy depends on those cruise ships. I know we are supposed to hate cruise ships here but the islands live for them. I bet within six months they will rebuild enough that Carnival is coming back, within 9 months I bet Norwegian, Disney, RC are back. Well actually Carnival may be back next week... Hopefully they rebuild quick as Cozumel and the other cruise ship destinations on the east coast of South/Central America will be packed for a while....
  7. I was there for our honeymoon in December. What a shame. I'm sure they will rebuild quick. The cruise ships will be back first, then the chart companies will rebuild.

    Interesting. What are the four tanks from stern to bow? I'm guessing fuel, potable water, gray water, sewage? What is that covering on the tank, or is the tank soft? Is there a larger inspection/cleaning port or is it just that one?

    Thanks Bob! Another question or two. Are those areas in the keel above the lead, liquid storage tanks? Diesel, water, gray, black? etc/ Why did you go with a sail drive? What are the advantages with this cutter? Would it have been better to put the engine in the keep area and have a shaft? I am sure you have your reasonings I just want to know why. Thank you! Beautiful boat BTW.

    This may have been asked already... what are the two mounts on the stern on both sides of the rudder? Are they mounts for an emergency outboard, rudder? what is the dimple everyone is referring too?

    We use titanium in worse environments in commercial aviation. As long as the material is picked correctly I don't think there will be any issues. That being said I have reviewed many Boeing SB's where we are replacing worn titanium.... When will the first boat float?
  12. ?? Who the hell is this?
