      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.

    New bowman to owner: Righto skip, what sort of spi takedown do you want? Skipper: Well I mounted the last prick who tried to do a Samouri douse on this boat, on the bowsprit - so you do it properly!

    The top mast slides inside the main mast, so it could pass under NY bridges. It had the largest Leisurefurl boom made to date, when it was built. I think the boat could do 23+ knots (I was on seatrials). It could have been faster if the topmast was lowered except when sailing, but it would have looked weirder. Add all the features the boat had together and it felt like impressive engineering, but styling was not copied ('nuf said).

    When I said "Hard over to leeward" I meant alter course

    I said "I'll check the luff tension whilst you ease the halyard, not dump it you moron!" Bowman Union Vs. Pitman Union.

    In a bid to increase entries for the next race, Mark Turner considers a new class!

    Are there any news hounds at the boat show tomorrow? Any announcements expected from BAR?

    Some might say you're not trying hard enough if you haven't ever hit the wreck
