      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

    Due to lack of ah ...brain power Me Rongo SA heavy air sails. Me Rongo Rekohu SA Code O. That's it at least they got off the line on time. Sooo Zezo will be just set up to optimize the O, or the heavy stuff and not look at the other options. Zezo set on Code O could be fun and fast. It's Sail what ya got time!
  2. VOR '17-'18 - THE GAME

    Stupid game switching between my two boats when logged in on only one after changing accounts on iOs app... first one boat with heading line, then a switch to the other with heading line and it's cycling between both non stop. Anyone getting this too?
  3. who what where

    Nip the pin shorter before install. Saves weight. Black goop needed (and back stuff looks like) is black marine grade 100% Silicone. Cover both sides of pin with some and on any other pins, nuts or bolt heads
  4. USS Lexington CV-2 discovered after 76 years

    What I find amazing is the lack of marine growth. For 75 years it’s realy clean. Like something we saw in the late 60s on the bottom of the Great Lakes. Now everything is Incased in zebra and quahog mussels. The planes colors are unbelievabley clear. Why? Is the wreck in a Marine desert?
  5. Hazard to Navigation

    Sooo who insures such things as lost cargo. loyds? Who’s paying the bill as the CG alerts us. Who pays the bill as these things come in. Are found one way or another?

  7. Chicken Chute

    In this years BYC Mac we had up the 1.5 80% 30 year old nylon chute for hours. In 29 to 36 kn TWS. Flat wake, spray straight out off the bow. We have gone through a lot of 3/4 .5 and .6 chutes over the years. We carry three chutes now a 1/2 oz runner, .6 all around and the 1.5. The 1.5 goes up to save the others from blowing up, so we can still go fast in lighter winds later in the race. Ordered a new heavy air flat chute this year as the old 1.5 was breathing to much and slowing us down. Thing about flat chutes in tippy boats is in heavy air they want to fly at a close reaching angle at times. This rounds up the boat. I’ve seen many take downs called because this and the flogging 1.5 up in to much wind.

    Good race. On the road the last day and using way points all the way around NZ and ah sleeping-all night as I finished on auto sails and way points. I’m not much of a night fighter any more. Still bugs me I missed Sapphire Girl. Is it ok to say She’s fast... good race Girl thought I had you after you went island hopping.

    Rule 2 Don't run aground. Seems the games updates got bugs iOS is looping between open app in the Apple Store and you shell not pass update screen in the app. Good thing the android app up dated or I'd be on dirt by now. Have a nice day VR.
