      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.

    Has anyone tried this? Seems like a good option vs a chain hook https://www.mantusmarine.com/mantus-chain-hook/

  4. Barn Find Cal 40

    Daiquiri 2 is now No Parley located in Dana Point, CA. Boat is still very active in the race scene and quite competitive.
  5. J105 Pushpit

    Who cares what it costs, the idiot who came charging in from behind should be paying for it. Get it fixed and send him the bill. That's what insurance is for.
  6. My newest project

    Bob, Is there a way to remove ballast from hull #1 to get back to your optimum? The boat looks great and I am sure once loaded it will float just fine, but removing 2k from ballast would go along way I'm sure.
  7. SoCal PHRF Corinthian rating

    So it sounds like unless you plan to use your motor there seems to be no reason to race cruising vs phrf class. To me this makes sense, seems like there are a lot of people who choose cruising because they get the proper adjustments. If PHRF can do this for them that take the burden off NOSA which is a good thing. As for why more people have not gotten a Corinthian rating, well it's probably because there wasn't the need since they just got the adjustments before. We have a Corinthian rating for our Cat 42 and it seems proper for that type of boat. The benefit of the Corinthian rating is that PHRF is issuing it and you get adjustments for items you wouldn't have with the old system such as anchor chain credits. It's a win win, plus you can race real phrf class racing with it and be on an even playing field. No special cruising class designation needed.

  10. Best cheap offshore sport boat

  15. gear to meet the 2017 US Sailing SER

    I would speak with the OA, sometimes they just fill out the SI's and never look over the actual gear requirements. Especially since these tend to change every year. Can you install a puck style transducer that only requires mounting inside of the boat. No need to drill a thru hull this way. An antenna and wire will cost you $200 and is of great piece of mind if something should happen, not just loosing a rig. And while you are up the rig just add a tricolor and be done with low lights. Easier to see from a distance and requires 1 bulb vs 3, less power draw. No need to fill in the lights in the hull, just have a separate switch and leave them as back up. Not seeing more than $500 worth of gear here, plus its an upgrade to the boat for future races.
