      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. Easy solution......sell the Benetub and buy your Lindenberg 26 back!
  2. I remember back when Bob used to post pictures of his weekly visits to the shop in this thread. C'mon Bob....we want to see the progress on the boats! Please!!
  3. I love this. Boat is currently in Annapolis and F2F might be a good tune up for Down the Bay. Make it interesting and add Fort Washington in the mix for us Upper Potomac boats. I come over to the Bay at least once a year......you guys should come to our extra-wide drainage ditch.
  4. Nice job photoshopping the North logo out!
  5. Down the Bay Race would be good practice. We need more boats in the double-handed class.
  6. I hate when people suggest stuff like this because then I want to do it. Let's bring back GOR! I've been told that my boat (Truculent Turtle-Lindenberg 26) has done it many, many years ago but I've never been able to find results to confirm that. But damn I'd love to revitalize that race.
  7. Gerard - If the D29 you got wouldn't have been on the left coast it would have been mine. I liked the deep keel that yours has. The one in Annapolis was removed from the market without selling (or so I've been told). I looked at that one but really liked the deep keel option yours has. Decided to hold off (for now). Great boat. I'm envious.
  8. Is Tom McNeil still there?
  9. Mike McCook is excellent. Just did an insurance survey for me. 202.288.4537.
  10. Instead of sail material for Lee cloths, use mesh. Breathable.
  11. Reckless Kelly - Crazy Eddie's Last Hurrah
  12. These are great. Trophies are just stupid things that sit on a mantle and collect dust, or take up space in a basement. I just threw a big box of them away last fall. I couldn't even find a group to take them. I'm all for things you can use in daily life that bring back good memories of a fun weekend on the water when you get to the bottom of your cereal bowl.
  13. Love, love, love my Lindenberg 26. I don't bother with local club racing anymore, mostly due to bullshit club politics and involvement with my kids extracurricular activities, but we race the shit out of it in several overnight distance races each year. I still need to tick off the O in MORC one of these days. I'm told my boat once won the DelMarVa race, but haven't been able to find evidence to prove it. I'd have no issues taking that 37 year old boat out in the ocean.
  14. You mean that's not how we're supposed to sail the downwind leg today? Crap!
