      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.

  8. Long Key, the Front Fell Off

    Know a coastie stationed in Guam spent time target practicing on derelicts that were found floating in the area. Mission was to sink the hazards to navigation. Makes me wonder why this one got away from the live fire range.

    You guys should try the app. Seems fine on iOS.
  13. Yanmar diesel outboard motor

    50 hp head on a 75-100hp lower unit could handle the push/punishment of a power prop. I suspect this could be a workhorse but it’s not marketed as one yet. Light Weight and top end speed are its thing now.

    +1 Another way is to click the boat, on the pop up click the left arrow the lat. long is the next one back. I’m using a iPad then I double click the home button, select chrome and the zezo screen tab. Then double click home select the game the to see the lat and long..

    Great job MOM U ARE one fast Mother. To think where you were at the start of this last time your skill set is amazing to get to the top so fast! Your instincts are great. To bad you missed rock hopping LOL ud have killed at it. I sat through both my finishes. On the mini a timer move to run down to the line moved to a grounding as the boat slowed? I did catch it in time. The Volvo was no land close so no problem. I’m thinking every time I move the heading when not needed is sucking miles off my runs. Not to self look don’t touch. Is there a in port race on the game this weekend?
