      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.

    Looking at it in real life you can see the dirty water marks and the spray dodger is buggerred as is the sail bag, but yeah overall, amazingly good nick. Didnt see the inside, maybe a bit more work there

    Yes the conditions were atrocious. I am at a loss to explain the fascination with Jackets however, no one is in the water and they are barely getting their feet wet. What was a big failure here was the lack of accessibility to EPIRB or PLBs. Had they been utilised I doubt the matter would have made the news, it would have been all over quickly. BTW - here is the boat a couple of days ago happily parked at WMYC. I am sure there is some work to do, but she is upright and remarkably good nick.

    I owned a 9 metre Kendrick Avalon Design, lovely boat and Ray Kendrick the designer was always happy to help me, even though i wasnt the builder and was the second owner. I had shitty old sails but she still went well, all things being equal (same sails same talent etc) , probably marginally slower than a C31. But only marginally.
  4. Pushing hard to get a fleet of cruising cats, mainly, but not only, seawinds, there as well. So don't think you need a race boat to have fun

    Thats Funny, true, but funny

    FFS - he protested a boat for asking a pilot what colour sails were people flying a few years ago. He would protest two flys on the wall

    I wasnt referring to Colregs, there is more to sailing than the Colregs

    Personally I would go and give Richards an informal education and some summary jurisdiction if I were on Comanche. Prat. If there is no significant penalty here then people will do the same thing in future. Aside from the RRoS, WO appears to have committed an offence in Maritime law. We certainly don't want to show the Police that we support and encourage behaviour that would invite their interest.
  10. Thanks Paul - just ignore the dipshits.
  11. QCYC Brisbane Going Broke?

    I have a number of berths across brisbane, but more importantly I spent many years as the treasurer of a Marina Board in Brisbane (Voluntary) Our board members and many others from other boards spent a lot of time working with Qld Transport/Port of Brisbane on matters of Wet Area leases, we made many advances including gaining significant extensions for our owners. Like it or not the Crown holds ownership, and we have to work with them to achieve what we can, instances of yacht Clubs/ Club Marina organisations acting in a less than satisfactory way sets us all back, I recall the push back after the Mooloolaba Yacht Club Fiasco. Don't need that again. If Yacht Club xyz acts improperly it affects all of us, well all of us who volunteer our time to assist our fellow berth owners
  12. QCYC Brisbane Going Broke?

    I was taking a couple of boats up Cabbage Tree Creek the other day and asked around about this issue. There is plenty of comment about this matter. From a couple of informed sources, those folk are members and are not happy, telling me a stupid action by some board members appears to have cost lots. Any of the QCYC folk want to respond?

    Fair bit if you have one parked at QCYC

    Thats good Peter, play the man not the ball, and in any event you are wrong. Spent 10 years on the Board of WMYC Marina including as Treasurer. Spent 10 years volunteering at Brisbane Coast Guard, was the MYCQ delegate to YA for about 4 years. I've done my bit.
