      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. Craigslist Finds

    Bought one few years ago and shipped it to europe. Came from Finns and this is like sailing in an armchair. Very comfortable to sail but still fast. The boat I had did not have the jib but sailed to windward at the same speed as a finn but much more comfy. The fun starts when bearing away. Youre sitting over the water and the boat just planes. Loved to sail it. Sold it lateron to a Doctor in Austria. Disadvantages: tippy when not sailing. It will not fall over when alone in the water but you cannot sit on the side when still in the water. Always wet feet due to the open transom. For the rest a blast of a boat. Very well built by Abbott's. Can recommend it.
  2. What being smoked by a FE28R feels like

    The other boat is an old but rebuild Extension quarter tonner from the end of the seventies. No real comparison me thinks. Nevertheless the FE28 is a nice boat.
  3. ton fun

    AFAIK the GunBoat is in Italy close to Rome somewhere. Together with Szuzzlebuble my all time favourite.
  4. IRC yacht 25/30 foot

    X-treme 25?? There is one for sale at GT Yachtbrokers in the Netherlands. Rates 1.015 under IRC. Used to be owned by Ian Wilson from Hamble??
  5. Wonder when they start handing out similar punishments to lying and cheating bankers/lawyers etc. The world would be much better of when they are banned from their profession for 5 years. Wont be many of them left to do the job though. How many bankers/lawyers in the ISAF anyway????
