      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 Hodgen built any race boats this big? I would think Front Street would have been a good option, lots of talent in that company.

    Farr 40 masts leak like a sieve, I have spent the better part of 3 summers trying to reduce/manage it. Best you can do is direct the water to the bilge and pump it over board.

    Kim I know you are using an old Farr 40 rig but are you keeping the same J, I, P, E dimensions or did you make any changes?
  6. Perry Sliver Class Day Sailor

    Use a constrictor clutch, same ease of remote operation but about 1/5 of the price
  7. Beau Geste

    Wasn't the owner on board for the whole time too? They do it right.
  8. Beau Geste

    Could the aft set of transverse tracks for upwind code 0 or Fr0?
  9. Beau Geste

    I believe that Puma's were vertical (Juan K design), Telefonica angled out (Juan K design) and Camper angled in (Botin design)
  10. J/111 Goes Sailing...

    what's the OD rule on jibs? I noticed some were getting furled, some were getting dropped and Blur left his up. Is one faster then the other beyond being able to use horizontal battens if you drop it to the deck.

    If you don't mind sharing, what work are you having done? I saw the picture of the sprit that you posted earlier, but I am interested to know what has already broke or wasn't there that you felt you needed. Boat is going down to Newport, don't know yet exactly when, depends on work still in progress and weather window.

    Gets the load aligned vertically, so you don't need to cant the track. Up the rig with the jib sheets? Are you referring to the ways most big boats adjust jib clew location or what?
