      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. Say It from the FP

    Cardboard box?
  2. Racer sponsorship

    There is also the model where the owner of the boat advertises his/her business on the boat, washes the money through the business.
  3. Add one word.

    YMCA Dead Pool Iron Maiden Lady The African Drag Queen Kill Mr. Bill Ocean Thirteen-ager
  4. New spinnaker from 1996! for Olson 29

    poly > flat water is your friend.
  5. Grey / Gray Dacron?...full Battens?

    At least a few years back, Etchells jibs had a hybrid top batten pocket. You could run a full batten in heavier winds, and a partial length battens in lighter air, I think the crossover was around 6 knots. Full battens in jibs are a negative in light air.
  6. Bad Company

    Um, Transpac IS a staggered start. Bummer, I guess it is no longer a race.
  7. Napa Fire

    Over 1500 structures burned so far. No containment on any of the fires yet. Emergency response is solely focused on preserving life.
  8. Wing keels

    They were a tool for a rule, nothing else.
  9. Older well known IOR Boats

    At one point in the IOR days there was a limit to the amount of Kevlar you could use in a sail. Like 30% of the total area for a mainsail. It was intended as a cost containment measure. Just ended up with crazy sails that didn't last as long and had materials with different shrink rates. There was also the joy of short battens that further ensured a short competitive life to the sail.
  10. Hardest series to win in SoCal

    Nice job ducking the question. What SoCal series is harder to win? I am not saying Hot Rum is the hardest. But you said it wasn't. So, what is?
  11. Hardest series to win in SoCal

    Yeah, Scott puts out an over-inflated view of his own performance in a weekend race. Shocker. But you put it out there, what SoCal series is harder to win?
  12. if it had a dingy, they outa name it "Hat"
  13. 3di-sintegration

    They had credibility? Now that is news.
  14. Selling a boat - Hypothetically

    Seems the only logic to work out is the math. What are the net proceeds from parts sales and what is the tax benefit for you specifcally. That vs what you could sell the boat for. If it pencils out, why not do it.
  15. 55 yo woman falls and shatters heel

    quick read of the thread "..woman falls and shatters KEEL" . That had my interest.
