      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. Why don't more people race?

    Not all of us are played out!! I'm 62, and still racing from March to December in New England on OPB's. Couple hundred races every year. When I can give up my Saturday overtime, the number will only increase!!
  2. Barn Find Cal 40

    Second from the bottom looks more like a stink pot, with a traditional rag baggers keel & rudder??
  3. Hang the rich

    It will never change!! The lawyers, accountants and tax avoidance people, are the same people writing the laws that Congress enacts to help the wealthy to avoid taxes.
  4. US Watercraft receivership ? (Alerion etc)

    Guy I know with a boatyard bought some boat stands at the auction, but I heard that a lot of stuff appeared overpriced?

It turns out my Slavic wife and he are probably related, since they both had a distant cousin of the same name, who go whacked by the mob in Bridgeport, back in the 60's....
  6. Sailing La Vagabonde

    There certainly seem to be more than a few of these???? Oh, to be 25 again!!!
  7. Baldness anarchy.

    Dunno about the Left Coast, but here in SE CT, every single gas station, convenience store, has signs out front offering bait worms, etc. Some even have outside vending machines, so early morning fishing people can stock up at O-Dark Thirty, before the store even opens...
  8. Keystone Pipeline Will Not Use American Steel

    Ruh-Roh!! Al Franken probably did it to change the media focus!! LOL!
  9. Next up! Al Franken

    Like I said in the other thread, Franken needs to use the "locker room defense"! It worked for Trump! And could he really feel her bewbs through a kevlar vest? Prank gone wrong, and this Leeanne gets heaps of ink now???
  10. Family Farm$

    Cant wait for Austin72 to chime in!!!

  15. Cold molded boats, how have they held up?

    Brooklin Boatyard in Maine? They do nice work! Summer of 2011, I did a bunch of deliveries back and forth from there in "Katrinka", a Bill Tripp 50 something, that they had just done a total refurb on. Sweet boat!!
