      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. never fuckin' mind

    Licensed to kill gophers by the government of the United Nations. A Man, free to kill gophers at will. To kill, you must know your enemy, and in this case my enemy is a varmint. And a varmint will never quit - ever. They're like the Viet Cong - Varmint Cong. So you have to fall back on superior intelligence and superior firepower. And that's all she wrote.

    Donald Demers is one of the best going today: http://www.jrusselljinishiangallery.com/pages/demers-pages/demersthumbs.htm
  3. Work in Yacht Design Offices

    Alan Gilbert was S&S's Chief Engineer for many years. A brilliant Engineer that I had the pleasure of sailing with many times. I believe he is still working in the industry today in his own consulting service. This article from 1980 explains how it worked in the S&S office: https://books.google.com/books?id=uMC_kUIYSg8C&pg=RA2-PA8&lpg=RA2-PA8&dq=Alan+Gilbert,+Naval+Architect&source=bl&ots=8wAuj_PV4N&sig=YlbIgbxGSU7aH7d6QruIXulUU-w&hl=en&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwiLo-OOgv3WAhXIYiYKHaDZC7oQ6AEIWTAH#v=onepage&q=Alan Gilbert%2C Naval Architect&f=false

    Not much point doing any more. There, fixed it for you.
  10. RIP Doug Peterson

    I found Bread. She was donated to the Sea Scouts in Bridgeport, CT.
  11. RIP Doug Peterson

    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:
  13. RIP Doug Peterson

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