      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. Just did a Moorings 4800 Cat (Leopard 48) out of Roadtown. Great trip. Only sailed for about two hours. If I had to do it all over, I would consider a Power Cat! Had no Customs/Immigration problems. Had a few minor provisioning issues. Still ended up with way too much food and booze at the end. The Moorings employees benefited from this! Ice was the biggest issue, and that wasn't a problem. Had a rat on the boat. He liked the melon, chocolate, and bottled water! Damn near cut my finger off at the Soggy Dollar Bar. The manager patched me up and drove me to the clinic in Great Harbour. We came through San Juan, PR. Stayed there for a few days to acclimate. Stayed out of questionable areas, and had a wonderful time. Short 45 minute puddle jumper flight to Tortola.

    The inventor of the Solo Red Cup had passed. Another victim of the 2016 Grim Reaper. http://www.usmagazine.com/celebrity-news/news/inventor-of-the-red-solo-cup-robert-leo-hulseman-dies-at-84-w458251

  5. George Coumantaros - DTS at 94

    if you want it to sound respectful treat it as "died too soon" problem solved. Thank you. Although, 94 that's a damn full life. Good on ya George. I took Kilroy's family out a few weeks ago for the ashes at sea. They had a full memorial service at LMU the day before, which I did not attend. The family was in very good spirits on the boat. It was mostly a celebration of life when they did the ashes. Yes, at 94, it is a full life! Sail on George, and Jim. May you cross tacks again.

    I have cockpit envy!
  7. John B. "Jim" Kilroy

    We gave Jim Kilroy a beautiful send off yesterday. The family had a memorial service at Layola Marymount University on Saturday. We took out a large group of the Kilroy family out on the C/S/K 42 Hiolani II. It was a beautiful day out on Santa Monica Bay. A mutual friend stated that it was too calm to send him off, but the family was very happy with the conditions. John Sangmeister brought OEX and his power cat up for the services. Pyewacket was out with a Bagpiper, a fitting touch. The CYC R/C boat Charles Hathaway was out in support, with several others. Many crew who had sailed with Jim Kilroy throughout the many years were there for the services.

    Perfect Timing, Andrews 26 (#1?) is going thru a refit. Currently in a slip at Caralina Anchorage. Lots of good MORC boats wasting away.

    You're overthinking the Genoa leads but the boat looks great Why not just a friction ring on the sheet that goes up down, and another that goes in and out to barberhaul? Much less hardware and toe stubbing Already have the trough with the Harken gear Will run a 6:1 under deckwith almost a 2:1 on the floating ring. Will keep the same height as car is moved.

    Time to get cutting and grinding on some Stainless Steel for the floating Genoa Leads. Won last night's race with a busted Checkstay. It was on the To-Do list, just didn't get to it in time.
  11. MdR get your act together.

    Correction, five clicks on VHF 81A!
  12. MdR get your act together.

    You can activate the foghorn by keying your mic on VHF 72 or (78?) five times. The sign is on the north jetty light (green). Not very convienient when you can't see shit. I imagine the people that live on the peninsula complained about the constant noise. As for the flag, it's a long story. A few years ago, when they dredged the channel, the power cable was cut. Then they didn't have power to keep it lit at night. They put a solar panel and battery in, which was supposedly stolen by the anchored out boats. The gal that ran day to day operations Beaches and Harbors passed away a while ago, and we're lucky to get a flag at all!

    Vale, Ramon. Another picture for Poncho, but I wasn't able to keep it for you:

    Still kicking myself for not buying that boat... Well, the purchase price of the boat was low. But it has taken a fair bit of time, effort, and money to get it back up near where it should be. Took the bottom all the way down and redid the barrier coat, then sprayed on a hard vinyl. Lots of new strings. A few new sails. The deck needs a full paint job in the next couple of years. It's a 30 year old boat, and needs it's attention. It does sail to it's rating quite well, especially when we got the driver to let it rumble. If it only had cupholders... Does have a lot of strings below... Interesting array of strings. Any idea what each controls? Genoa Leads In & Out, Backstay, and Checkstays purchases are under the cockpit floor. Genoa track is in an athwartship trough on deck.
