      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.

    Not much point doing any more. There, fixed it for you.

    I found Bread. She was donated to the Sea Scouts in Bridgeport, CT.

    And when you compare Bread and Sleeper, they are almost assuredly two different boats. Bread had an early version of rope clutches in 1979 and Sleeper is still a winch farm today. I wonder how many of these are sitting in the back of old yards, rotting.

    And thar she is:

    The light grey Ganbare 35 in Stamford, CT is called Sleeper. I'll try to snap a pic.

    From the Right Coast, Not By Bread Alone (commonly referred to as just "Bread") was one of the most successful IOR boats of her time. There is a Ganbare 35 sitting in a slip in Stamford Landing Marina, Stamford, CT right now. She is light grey with a green sail cover. I can't remember her name right now, I'll come up with it. She could easily be the old Bread, repainted in grey. A shot of Bread back in the day (1979). Thank you Paul Mello for the photo.

    The Anchor Point Marina in some of the photos in that link is full this year. The Stamford Landing Marina, also in photos, is more expensive and likely will not be full or even close to it. Stamford Landing is a BLT Marina. The same BLT that tore down Yacht Haven West and is now building the replacement on a postage stamp plot on the patio of yet another apartment complex. The 14 acres that was Yacht Haven West sits empty and BLT is mum on what its intentions are with it. It is amazing what developers in Stamford get away with.
  12. Older well known IOR Boats

    The first Infinity was a Holland 40. Had the B&R Rig, tubular construction, etc. Here's the ad for her: Yachting - Google Books.html

    Infinity too. A sister to Regardless? I can only find a shot of the 1983 Holland 47 version of Infinity, a beautiful look, but no where near as successful. A Larry Moran photo:
