      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. I was hoping "Wisp" would show up on this thread. Wisp was built in Sidney B.C. by Bent Jespersen Boat Builders in 1981 (I think). I started to sail with the Wilson family when they owned a Viking 33 called "Menehune". I was fortunate to sail on Wisp a few times. However my brother sailed on her from the start. Vic- Maui, Clipper Cup, Mexorc, BBS, SORC...& many more regatta's. He has hundreds of pictures documenting the campain. She was also featured in a Forespar add. Sailing down wind between Tomahawk & I think Container, I think it was during SORC. Recently I was honored to play a small part in her refit. She was purchased by the late Don Wilson's son. We redid all the deck gear with new Harken equipment, new keel & new carbon rig. I'll call my Bro, get him to send me some pictures. There are some awesome shot's. Hope to post them soon....... Thats great - Thanks for the info. That must have been one nice refit - the rig and setup looks slick. Can't wait to see the pics.
  2. saw this the other day - what a nice boat. got a real nice new rig and new bits - wish it was a pic of her sailing but still wanted to post and would love to see some old pics of her back in ealry 80's Will o'the Wisp D.Peterson 41' 1980 CM/Sloop/2-Ton racing
