      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.

    Thanks Sam and ZG. Now to find a charter somewhere to test drive.... Nevermind. Not paying that much for something that will spend half its life in cold water -Tad

    Was just in St. Lucia last week and stumbled on the fleet while cavorting in Rodney Bay. Saw this boat, which may or may not be the TS42 mod-job that was being discussed, but I like it, and want it. Anyone know what it is, if its not the TS42 (looks more like a Catana to me)

    I've now heard from all of my friends down in various parts of Florida and they're all safe and sound with no damage other than a dock that was underwater. My boss' liveaboard boat in Halifax Harbor Marina seems to be ok. Most of them have power.

    Anyone know how the marinas around Daytona Beach fared? My boss has his live-aboard Bristol 40 berthed there and can't get any info.

    Friends in Orlando made it through ok. Their lake dock was underwater but their house was fine. She says they're getting power back today or tomorrow. Anyone hear how the nuke plants fared?

    This storm is really fucking up all of the areas that are special to me and my family....

    No offense taken. Different strokes, different folks. The moorings, and their inhabitants are a fact of life down there. My idea of a sailing vacation differs from that of some of my guests. A certain amount of party, a certain amount of creature comforts are required in certain proportions to make the trip enjoyable for everyone - not just those of us who like to spend hours pointing the bows in a random direction and then trimming the sails to suit. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-4861184/Shocking-scale-destruction-Tortola-revealed.html

    It's going to be lonely, and a place without destinations. Who knows what the conditions of the mooring fields are - and even then, what those mooring fields service. Bitter End? Soggy? The Settlement? Who knows whether those places we use as anchorages even still exist... If your idea of a good charter vacation is to get the vessel, provision it for you and your guests, and then go touring destroyed anchorages and a now desolate landscape then it will be a nice time.

    Fortunately the deposit was scheduled to be delivered yesterday so it's either lost or not a priority right now - not too worried about that part honestly.

    We only got a week to work with. Going outside the hemisphere isn't really an option due to travel times. I keep telling myself to wait and see what they say.
  12. Irma

    Dear God. That would be terrible

    I'm trying to figure out if I recommend to our guests that we cancel our trip in December. I guess I'll just wait and see what the charter company tells me. Sure it'd be nice to be able to get away to the tropics for a week - but if there's nothing left to visit, that would kinda suck in a way. Wonder how Willy T's fared.
  14. Irma

    I'm pretty sure I know already based on the damage I've seen to Tortola - but does anyone know how Anegada fared?

    My boss tidy'd up his live aboard Bristol 40 down in Daytona and hit the road this AM.
