      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.

    There are definitely uglier boats out there. I wouldn't turn down a ride on this one.
  2. US Watercraft goes to Auction!

    I've always wanted my own travel lift!

    Garmin Quatix watch is sufficient. Not sure why you would much more.

    Just because you're busy doesn't mean you're food at business. All you need to do is spend more than what's coming in.

    For an ocean going vessel yes, but bow much close match racing can be done with deck spreaders and side foils? For me, speed is relative. I would rather have non foiling monos like a Maxi72 with good close racing rather than a tender swiss army knife that breaks every time it touches another boat.

    Just an interjectory thought... many years ago, skiing was dead. You know what brought it back to life? Snowboards. I really think the AC cats and all the devo of the last 4 or 5 years will encourage mono development in the same way snowboarding encouraged carving shapes and cool graphics to skiing.

    Sorry, Alan.

    So, is it Allen from now on then?
  9. Hey Editor, ever heard of one design?

    About 17 years ago.
  10. Hey Editor, ever heard of one design?

    Oh geez. This has to be the dumbest thing I've ever read here. Backroom deals? Illegal? You mean picking a supplier? I'm no North fanboy, I get my sails from a small, old school loft, but this is insane. Should they have sourced all the raw mats for the boats from multiple vendors as well? It's one-design from the keel to the mast to save some $$$ for the teams. Personally, yes, I believe sail maker choice would have been better for the event and the industry, but oh my, this is a dumb gripe.

    Really interesting that Gladiator is still in TP52 mode and really doing well in the first race.
  12. PAC 52

    That's one of the many interesting things about pac52's...there is some freedom. IH and BP habe higher freeboard as well. But both have won w/l inshore races.
  13. PAC 52

    Huh? BG and Fox are sisters. Rio is designed more as an inshore boat. Bad Pak and IH are designed with offshore racing in mind.
  14. Farr 36OD looking to head West

    Sure know how to make someone feel welcome!
  15. Camet Sailing Shorts - any good?

    I have to pair of the original model. Both are 10 years old. Holding up well being used 2 or 3 times a month in the summer season.
