      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 may be wrong but I'd haul in the backstay. Draft too far back results in uneven draft. I'd say your at 60% of full on trim

    Mill scale steel removal?? Never heard of that before. Then again what do I know.

    Who is that clown?

    Good. This tells us you have experience dealing with a large demographic of people, you enjoy working with your hands, have a good understanding of machinery including technical issues involving software, have the patience for fine joinery, patient enough to deal with people's demands and can probably cook up a mean meal to boot. These skills definitely relate to the boating industry. Anything else you can add?
  11. Building my first boats

    Skills don't have to include sailing or boating. Just let us know all the other life experiences you've done to date. It would help define your character. People look to those other skills when selecting someone to train in order to gain experience needed. If you know what I mean. Hunting for example...

    Good question Kain. If you could share more of your existing skills, maybe we could direct you to someone who could help you achieve your goals. Maybe even a paying job. Great to see youth who want to succeed in sailing.
