      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 have something to say. From a classic 56' sailing boat from Germany. I cannot attest. To Schields sailing for years in NPT. Then to a "LobsterYacht". The chosen:

    No. You would have heard about her. Such a Macho boat to be called Her. In France boats are He. On the subject: very difficult in the US. to get anybody interested in the Class 40; very little actions in one offs of any kind, and you can even forget about starting a sailboat production line. Except for the herd mentality that seems to hover the general population in general. Just observation.
  3. Coolboats to admire

    Forget about the Saildrive. I see an awful lot of drag off the bulb in the keel.
  4. Coolboats to admire

    ProaSailor. You are right about that ! Ban was quick in coming. For a Class 40, I designed a new bow within the new rule bow width limits. Certainly not as extreme as on a Mini Transat.
  5. 1st JPK 11.80 launches

    Jackolantern. No, it was not a proposal for the NYYC. One Design. At 33' this 2012 design was for A Chilean client. I wish I had known about the NYYC program.
  6. 1st JPK 11.80 launches

    I concur. This sample is for a retractable keel allowing deeper draft. I this case the choice is for a "Slab" keel for lower drag and same C.G.
  7. ton fun

    RKoch, SloopJohnB. Hydra by Demi Coques.
  8. Sailbydate. Drawn in 2011, right after Raison's victory in the Mini Transat. I wanted to explore the design in comparison to the more traditional approach for the time. Heeling at 10, 15 and 20 Deg.
  9. ton fun

    In Sardinia 1973 One Ton Cup.
  10. ton fun

    Tan ton full of fun. Dick Carter, the Father with Olin Stephens of the I.O.R rule is finishing his book. I cannot wait. A very slice of ocean racing when everything was still possible.
  11. Reminds me of something! Cela me rappelle de quelque chose.
  12. Sailors Powerboat

    Sailors Power Boat @ 8.5knots. The Northwest Passage 2009. "The Other Side Of The Ice". The Movie and the Book.
  13. Sailors Powerboat

  14. I've had it with Rhode Island - Where to go?

  15. Hard vs soft dinghy

    3 pieces Nesting pram. The plan.
