      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.

    Too much eyeliner.

    Congrats Red, and yes, please keep posting updates.

    +1 on Henri Lloyd. I've had a light coastal jacket for about 6 years and it's still going strong. I'd assume their heavier gear is just as robust and they'd be my first choice if I ever get the chance to go offshore.

    Always willing to put in an effort to keep the humor low.
  5. How should I bed these screws?

    The traditional way is after a few dates to build an emotional connection first. The fast way is using rohypnol in their drinks.
  6. Coolboats to admire

    without looking it up I thought there were a few over 100 made. yep, the owners are listed http://www.concordiaboats.com/yawls.php Oh, very cool. I now know what that beautiful wooden boat was I was parked next to in Milford Harbor a few years ago. #55 Kiva.

    That's some funny shit right there. Yea, but it manages the rare feat of being so ugly it's cute! It's Timmy the Trawler, cousin to Thomas the Tank Engine.

    It is out standing in its field.

    Hey, hey - you're hitting pretty close to home there! Grew up traipsing the continent in a VW Campmobile, and own a VW Eurovan MV Weekender nowadays, which, come to think of it, traipsed all over the continent too. The first time I was a kid; my folks were German so we took German-style vacations - six weeks at a time and they always involved conquering territory (Northern Quebec, the Southwest, Northern Rockies, etc.) Did the same with the newer one with my kids (Baja, PNW, Southeast, etc.) Short of sailing, some of the best experiences we've ever had. Similar living conditions too. Heh. What nationality were your folks the second time you were a kid?

    Ha! Nope. But I am just the teeniest-tiny bit of a romantic despite my deep-seated cynicism. Your location: Newyorkachusetts. Just curious, Yankees or Red Sox? EIther one's ok with me. Well, I would like to think that. Neither, really. Was never a fan of baseball, though I will watch a Sox game with my dad when we visit him in Charlestown. I prefer football, but haven't followed it in years. Was a big Giants fan back in the Simms, Bavaro, Taylor days.

    There's a small, dark part of me that likes this boat. This is the type of thing one lives on when one is a completely disaffected misanthrope. It sits in the cheapest marina way upriver, or by the water treatment plant or cannery, on a pier that nobody seems to own, and doesn't move except once every 3 - 4 years when he motors, laboriously, down the way to get a short haul for the bottom. He has little use for anyone or anything and keeps to himself. He's evasive and distrusting, but polite enough if you don't ask prying questions. There's a rumor he worked for the government, "fixing" problems in far away places. He doesn't seem to work nowadays. Just spends most days fishing of the breakwater or walking into town to read in the library. He feeds the 3-legged dog that hangs around, but says it's not his; it's just a stray. If, after a few drinks at the wharf watering hole, you can get him to talk, he says simply that he likes it there because he lives on a boat on the water, and for as long as he can remember he liked the sound of the waves and the smell of low tide.
