      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.

    I'm jealous puffy. The Victory is sitting under a cover awaiting warm weather. The Midwest sucks.

    Sounds like a boatyard I know of whose reputation is something along the lines of---although you cannot pay more, you can get better. Know the place well. Still the same I see.

    Good see that the boat went to a good Chicago yard that can handle a boat that big.

    Sailing Saturday and Sunday. No Tri-State yet.

    I may not be a rocket scientist, but it looks like you are coming in from out of town. On another site I saw you were going to Crowleys and will have a vehicle. I would use Polar Ice Company. Not too hard to find. It is listed in the search 12345 did for you.

    They have the fenders on the wrong side of the boat.

    In the past, Crowley's sent out the welding work. If you know where you want the fitting attached and do not need rigging work, you would be money ahead finding a welder on your own.

    I don't remember any bashing taking place. It seemed as though we were all behaving ourselves. Too bad we lost some good discussions. Time to start over again.
