      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. Binoculars ?

    Love my Steiner Navigator 7x50. Last pair of bino's I'll ever buy.
  2. Musto LPX for offshore racing

    HPX is Atlantic ocean in December, and Southern Ocean kind of stuff. It's the hail mary of foulies.
  3. Elevating the rig on a Laser

    Ease your vang and sail a smidge, if you must before you tack..
  4. FP Anarchy kicked out of race

    Of the dozens of YC's in SoCal, the loss of one of them for a year to an individual is not a huge loss. Keep your nose clean, and always next year.
  5. Laser 2 Parts

    Any good rigger will be able to set you up with standing and running rigging of that type. They'll just need to know the necessary lengths.
  6. Henri Lloyd Offshore Elite 2.0

    I've got a HL TP2 set thats 8 years old, and just bought my MPX this past winter, while the TP2 and MPX are in different categories, I find the quality and craftsmanship to be far superior in the MPX, as well the fit. Only thing I don't enjoy about the MPX is the neoprene cuffs, vs shell material cuffs I have on my TP2. But not a deal breaker. That said, glad you found a set you love, wear them well!
  7. Gear Bags for Carry On

    North Face and Patagonia have several duffels that are carry on size, and mostly waterproof. For stuffing down below on a keel boat, they'll be just fine.
  8. Hurricane Harvey - watch out, Texas

    25 inches of rain in 24 hours. Friends have seen the national guard roll into town. We're wishing we more properly understood this, and picked up sand/mulch bags as we have water seepage under one door, and damaged floorboards, but if that's all we get we'll take it. So far wife and pups are ok, and that's all that matter.
  9. Hurricane Harvey - watch out, Texas

    WIfe and I have lived here in Clear Lake, a sub of south Houston on the shore for almost two years, and a year in our new to us house. Our street drains quickly but that said, our house is facing a cul-de-sac, and we're flooded with water working its way up our driveway. We just emptied the last bits out of the garage to get my car in the garage to save it. Not like we can go anywhere..
  10. iPad Battery Life (sucks)

    Make sure your apps aren't running in the background, and kill them if you aren't using them. Mail is a huge concern as far as fetching, make sure to turn that off.
  11. Musto LPX for offshore racing

    I fold my foulies like I would any sweater and trousers while travelling. But if not in used they are hung on a hanger.
  12. Musto LPX for offshore racing

    What sways you toward the LPX jacket, and not a full MPX set? I have MPX here in Texas, and its a gem.
  13. Show and tell!!

    Usually win a championship of a varying type.
  14. Show and tell!!

    It legitimately is part of their logo. News to me too! http://www.rollytasker.com/
  15. Mystery Keeled Dinghy

    A mighty fine POS 19 if I recall correctly..
