      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. Best Rock Song Intros

    Mama Kin - Aerosmith
  2. Daysailer recommendations for this area/situation?

    S2 6.9 or 6.7. Same hull different deck. Lifting daggerboard can ramp launch Air draft will clear bridge. Available at sub- $5k Good sailer. A little sister of the 7.9.
  3. Rotary cutters

    Those green cutting mats they sell with roller cutters work well. They don't dull the blades too quickly. Only downside is that the mats are usually pretty small, around 18x24 inches.
  4. OF20 kinda reminds me of Nigel Irens' Romilly. Different rig and ballast, obviously. Both cool looking boats.
  5. Puzzle: What boat? $500K, family of 6.

    +10. Everyone who has worked with Bob in this way seems very happy with the experience, and the boat they chose.
  6. Craigslist Finds

    Wooden FD project anyone? https://newlondon.craigslist.org/search/sss?query=dutchman&sort=rel
  7. Craigslist - Not mocking

    Wow! That is a nice looking boat Too bad it's on the wrong coast.
  8. Jamestown distributors is sponsoring a project like this. An old Graves Constellation is being redone nicely http://www.totalboat.com/videos/
  9. Something different for CA

    Any value in making the bow foil rotate, like a small canard? Independently operated, or slaved to the helm. Perhaps more complexity than needed.
  10. Coolboats to admire

    All raid boats are cool, because of how they are being used.
  11. Wooden spar details

    Steve, what is that?
  12. Craigslist Finds

    1964 Wooden FD on eBay: http://m.ebay.com/itm/272530417350?_trkparms=pageci:0961f56a-e2a3-11e6-9c96-74dbd1a0f9cc%7Cparentrq:d360d0d21590a5e0a20e080effab790d%7Ciid:1&_mwBanner=1
  13. Show your boat sailing thread

    Touching shot. I just lost my dog of fifteen years last Thursday. Leaves a hole in ones heart. Hug your dogs.
  14. if you could raise one musician back from the dead

    Mozart, Beethoven, and Bach would have trouble producing new music if brought back to life. They would be too freaked out by the giant iron birds flying around.
