      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. That's why I like my spot on Boxing Day, got to love the exclusion zone flag!
  2. If you go out on one of the AC boats, make sure Mouse is on board. He'll point stuff out, then drink with you.
  3. Yes, Mr Porter....Hobart time?

    Dash Hi I'm based in Sydney Australia so have passed on details to my contact at Forespar.

    Dash That looks like one of the old style MF850 series. The handles on these can't be replaced, however if you upgrade to the 93 integrated series, then you can easily change the handles if there are any leaks. salestechsupport@forespar.com
  7. Jees Peter, where have you been! Thought everyone knew about that link.

    Damn I thought I was the only one with a white Line7 jacket from 81! Mines in the garage in case it rains and I get caught out. Replaced the zipper a few decades ago, that's all.
  9. Happy New Year!

    My son got to take a tour of Wild Oats before the race - thanks to long time SA member Phil for that one! Yep
  10. Oy, Sydney!

  11. Oy, Sydney!

    Introduced BJ to a heap of Aussies at the Skiffies and then took him up to North Head for a view down the harbour. Obligatory for any visitor to town.
  12. Melbourne Big Boat Fleet

    As a NRO, it's my job to make sure my customers get what they are after. A clear start and a fair course. But I do most of my work north of you.
  13. One to keep an eye on eh? I only knew about the A10.
  14. Live concerts in awesome locations

    Beach Boys at Rat Park North Narrabeen in the 90s, John Stamos as drummer. 50' from the stage dead in front. With the kids and their besties.

    Great little trailer yacht that one, many fond memories from back in the early 80s.
