      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. VOR '17-'18 - THE GAME

    Next tried again. Got off. Bounced back AGAIN! Closed the game reloaded it and got off. What a pain I was thinking about waiting the next Hi Tide... What is the moving tan and white stuff.

  11. beaver moon 2017

    Sailing a Victoria RC boat (craigslist find $25.00 USD) late yesterday afternoon on the cold Black River. As the sun set the wind died to nothing. I got the thing in after sunset. Then I saw the moon through the fall bare trees after the recovery. Thinking about the timing and a quick Bing check on the moons phase. Full Beaver Moon but not a Full Beaver Super Moon but close. It missed this by being one day early.
  12. ......another ferro-cement boat thread

  13. Removing hard scale on gelcoat

    +1 brown or yellow waterline stains are gone using this stuff fast. The works bowl cleaner not as good..
  14. That boat was bow heavy white boxes ? It did go down fast as hell...
  15. Split foam pipe insulation anarchy

    I have about this same problem,copper and distance,but in the basement no heat. Insolation helps. The real trick is to turn the hot water on to trickle when you are going to use it. Seems to warm up just as fast as full flow with out a lot of water waste. You have to warm up pipe it takes time.
