      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.

    Only in your ignorant, insular f#ched up little world. The swastika (as a character 卐 or 卍) is an ancient religious icon used in the Indian subcontinent, East Asia and Southeast Asia, where it has been and remains a sacred symbol of spiritual principles in Hinduism, Buddhism and Jainism.[1][2][3][4] The name swastika comes from Sanskrit (Devanagari: स्वस्तिक), and denotes "conducive to well being or auspicious".[5][6] In Hinduism, the clockwise symbol is called swastika symbolizing surya (sun), prosperity, and good luck, while the counterclockwise symbol is called sauvastika symbolizing night or tantric aspects of Kali.[6] In Jainism, a swastika is the symbol for Suparshvanatha – the 7th of 24 Tirthankaras (spiritual teachers and saviours), while in Buddhism it symbolizes the auspicious footprints of the Buddha.[6][7][8] For the Hindus and Buddhists in India and other Asian countries, the swastika was an important symbol for many thousands of years and, to this day, the symbol can still be seen in abundance - on temples, buses, taxis, and on the cover of books. It was also used in Ancient Greece and can be found in the remains of the ancient city of Troy, which existed 4,000 years ago. The ancient Druids and the Celts also used the symbol, reflected in many artefacts that have been discovered. It was used by Nordic tribes and even early Christians used the Swastika as one of their symbols, including the Teutonic Knights, a German medieval military order, which became a purely religious Catholic Order. ............ I HOPE YOU ARE NOT CATHOLIC THEN. THE SHAME....

    Nice one Cyclops ,How quickly we forget the Fantasia Bunfight fought out on these boards, amongst others. A very few fish in a very small pond seem to spend a lot of time snapping at each other and doing nothing for the sports long term health. This is just another example. By the way since when has the DIAM style boat been an OFFSHORE MULTIHULL and worthy or fair to be rated under the OFFSHORE MULTIHULL RULE. Desperate for boats under a dying rule heh . Seems that the non OMR multihull is where the growth is. Time to look outside the box.

    To be fair, the boats where sail area is the only controlled measurement, (like C class cats) that have Una rigs, they are also designed for a very small wind range around a race track. If they were allowed to carry downwind sails then in light air they would. If you want to whack a mast up in the cat heads then you gonna have to whack some bouancy up there with it. Any one for a FAT cods head these days?
  5. Any info on this cat?

    Foam sanwich hulls, ply decks if built to plan. <4 ton displacement, long skinny hulls, no shortage of sail area. They sailed real well for their era. Still fast by todays roommaran standards. I could never live with that cabin. Could you?
  6. Any info on this cat?

    Butchered Crowther? Any clues as to LOA?

    Interesting that the 1160 Lite , Double Black Diamond was slower than the 1160 Talisker in all races except 1. No suprise the 1160 Deluxe was the s l o w e s t boat in its class.

    Excellent example. The approaching boat is Team Vestas and the fishing boat is ...well the fishing boat. Obviously you get Randumbs point. Now school the others. Bwahahahaha

    WTF is the preoccupation with a lookout about. They killed the poor bastard through ass hattery on many levels. What about...... 6. Safe speed Every vessel shall at all times proceed at a safe speed so that she can take proper and effective action to avoid collision and be stopped within a distance appropriate to the prevailing circumstances and conditions. In determining a safe speed the following factors shall be among those taken into account: (a) By all vessels: (i) the state of visibility; (ii) the traffic density including concentrations of fishing vessels or any other vessels; (iii) the maneuvrability of the vessel with special reference to stopping distance and turning ability in the prevailing conditions; (iv) at night the presence of background light such as from shore lights or from back scatter of her own lights; (v) the state of wind, sea and current, and the proximity of navigational hazards; (vi) the draught in relation to the available depth of water. ........

    While the establishment fights for the status quo another multi is overcome by a gust and requires rescue. https://www.sunshinecoastdaily.com.au/news/four-rescued-as-33-foot-vessel-capsizes-south-of-c/3358610/ Water police were forced to rescue four people after their trimaran capsized yesterday in North Brisbane.
