      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.

    I think all sailors will applaud your proposed "Tight Box" Rule

    It was conceived (with multiple fathers including designer Bob Perry) on the SA Sportboat Forum FFS!!

    Always amusing that SYC used to have the Free Beer session BEFORE the Sail Pissed. Free Beer session is now later. Bloody Fun Police... "Don't drink and Gybe".
  9. Melbourne Big Boat Fleet

    Some Melbourne Clubs kicked off their seasons last weekend. Its opening day at Royal Sandy tomorrow, the weather looks sensational for the Sail Past for a change. With somewhat unfortunate timing, they have chosen the theme for the day to be "Cruisin' the Caribbean". Hope we dont see boats washed up on the beach. ...and I can say this with absolute certainty: FREE BEER TOMORROW (Conditions apply) Happy Sailing everyone for 2017-18
  10. Potential new Beneteau 36.7 Owner

    Search function. Use it.
  12. Sydney to Hobart 2017

    Yep, they just left here. Happy slops!
  13. Tom Petty DTS

    The Travelling Willburys was not a good band to belong to if you were looking to live a long life. Only Jeff Lynne and Mr Zimmerman left now. RIP another Willbury, Tom Petty. 1981's 'Stop Draggin' my heart around' with Stevie "as long as I have a face she'll be good for somewhere to sit" Nicks is still my favourite rock duet of all time. Great lyrics, great singing, great guitar licks and keyboard, just a great, great song.
