      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. 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
  2. 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?

    Contact me, we can make that happen

    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.

    And it draws to a close, latest is that QCYC are losing badly, offerring money to settle, and saying thats all we have, any more we go into administration. Much more to come out of this, some board members are exposed.
  7. Affordable American Made Catmarans

    The 1160 Resort does 40 plus 2 in smooth water survey in Australia, and our rules are ridiculously tough
  8. Corsair 760

    All three hulls are in the water. The amas should be out of the water when flat so the boat can tack. My mistake, but same applies
  9. Corsair 760

    A corsair dash weighs less than many f82s, goes quicker and has more room. So I think your learned assessment based on a photo is crap. BTW I have sailed both the boats.

    Top effort TOP GUN. Really good performance.

    Never follow monos but I would have thought BlackJack would have cost much of that on its own?
  12. 2017 Brisbane to Gladstone Multihull Race

    No Offence to Perro, but how slow are Catanas. Big Reputation which is consistently not justified. I recalll 8 or so years back a Catana Ocean 47 with a carbon rig full set of excellent sails and one of the worlds best sailors helming it (Phillipe Peche) beat us (seawind 1160 driven by average hacks and no spinnakers) by less than two hours in a 40 hour race. Recent Hammo and Airlie results have not been much more impressive for the Catanas. Like me they just got older and heavier I suspect.

    Oooooooooh, Has someone been "tickling the peter"? Do tell. Nothing to tell, Seawind did go into administration many many many years ago, every single customer was looked after, no customer lost anything. As a creditor I lost a bit, but no boat owner or customer lost anything, very very very old news, and incorrect. And possibly defamatory by Mr Hackett. Actually the member who refused to pay fees and refused to answer all communications is the one who started this. I was proudly ON the board when the action to get the monies for the club was started, and have let my position pass to a great bloke who will be in the country for longer than I will this year. Like I said, so far the court has rejected all QCYC arguments. Mid may should see the final picture on this.
  14. QCYC Brisbane Going Broke?

    Dear me Pete, very nasty. I am just reporting what happened in Court, and I am doing so as a person who was a marina company board member for many years and an owner of a titled berth lease and thus has a strong interest in what is happening around leases along with many many others from my club and marina company who worked assiduously for many years to get the current arrangements in place. I suppose all will know the full story publicly in 5 weeks when the matter returns to court. I will be in attendance on that day to make sure that my asset like the thousands of affected wet berth owners is protected and not endangered by actions of a club whose very own board records indicate that they are in deep financial crisis. Perhaps you should attend and hear the reality not the filtered self serving information. Your board started this fight. No one else did.

    And it gets serious now. QCYC got spanked big time in court in Brisbane today. What was most worrying for them wasn't just that they got spanked on their spurious and illegal action, but rather that the PORT of BRISBANE turned up at the hearing to indicate to the court their concerns with QCYC, these people should learn to only pick fights they have at least a chance of winning. Upside is they are not taking B2G entry fees for multis. The fundamental remains, that QCYC's own records indiacte they have a serious cash issue and that they have attempted to assist in solving that by some really dodgy deals.
