      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. So, a Tornado sailor,living in Vancouver, one time crew member on Afterburner. I trust that you are a member of the BCMS and if so I could use your expertise re Tornado rigs for my single handed,day sailing, old C Class platform.
  2. Keep us upto date with your progress with some photo's. Do you know whether this was the only one built? I have a build log up on boatdesign.net Kraken 25 build log That's awesome! I'll follow this! Love the traps too! I've rebuilt the main hull from scratch luckily I had a photocopy of the original plans out of scale but able to rescale quite well. I'm up to the final lamination of the main hull triple diagonal cold molding with about 1 1/2 of the main hull to finish. I also found the floats were too rotted out to reuse so I'm building a new set in double diagonal using the original float with the outer layer removed as a base the new floats will be a shade wider but should make no difference at all to performance. I'm looking forward to turning the main hull prior to Christmas and aim to get the boat on the water by mid 2012. I've saved a few bits from the original boat the rudder blade and stock, the original daggerboard, the mast and boom and the crossbeams will be salvageable. The original hulls were just too far gone to be worth rebuilding. There were a few Kraken 25's built, one called Jabberwock was built by Martin Cooper in Queensland. I recall reading about a Kraken 25 in the states that carried the sail number 45 so quite a few plan sets were sold. Minor point. The Kraken 25 may well be 25 feet long, she is almost certainly wider than 14 feet and she quite possibly, or even probably has more than 300 square feet of sail, but she is not a C Class, which in addition to those beam and sail area limits states right at the beginning of the rules that a C Class is a catamaran. I know that the Bard said "what's in a name" but Kraken 25 is fine, a C Class is not..
