      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. My C&C39 is sadly for.sale after 7 years of cruising. All gear included. Diesel heater, radar, several gps/plotters, below deck hydraulic AP, Aries windvane, windgen, two solar panels, two high output alternators, two elect winches, one a massive two speed Barient 32 and a small one just to roll up the furler. SSB w/ modem packet, ram Mic in.cockpit, big as windlass and 250' of 10 mm chain, heavier than 3/8... Several ankers, and all the safty gear including tethers a.d jacklines and harness inflatables, rib with 6 horse and much more... I hate to give her up, but I have to attend to aging parents and very soon, so I am letting her go.cheap... Pm me for.details... Currently in Clearwater fl...
  2. Funny thing, many people in other countries like to make fun of Americans (and no wonder) but they don't know diddley themselves. It's a fact that the then-colonies in America were also sent shiploads of convicts and not only that, further shiploads of people who were actually worse off "indentured servants." This was a system whereby white people could be treated worse and paid less than either convicts or slaves. So there, PO you see we actually have more in common than you thought. FB- Doug The biggest problem (besides slavery) with the ancestry of the States is that so many of them were fanatical religious refugees. Witness the religious right - you're STILL paying the price for that. Funny thing about that... the US acquired "freedom of vessel choice" thru the expedient of having no vessel choice with a clear enough majority to suppress the others. But the effort continues to this day and while we have this freedom, intolerance for MAC26's, BendyToy's, Haunters, Don'tJeauneau's, Flying Hawaiian, Weird Stowe and others Is generally seen as a sign of devoutness. FB- Doug Fixed it FB

  4. Wow! Just wow! I go out of my way to post interesting, insightful and entertaining commentary, and this is the response I get? Good grief! With a dude this gullible, next thing you know he'll turn out to actually be a Hot Rod supporter, cluelessly cheering him on with a complete lack of understanding of the mechanical and structural principles that doomed the Flying Hawaiian since the very first drywall screw was driven into the end grain of a hem/fir 2x4. Oh. . . wait. . . . Oh, geez... My bad... I guess I didn't find the threats of violence interesting Rambo... New use for the FH, cage match arena...
  5. Ya know, I was just thinking that SA needed a bit more drama. Thank-you... Now seriously chill a bit. Take a valium or dry hump one of your neighbors.
  6. Southie? Somerville? Revere? Where ya's from?
  7. Void Ho bombs for everyone!
  8. Except he never posts pics that let us monitor the rate of bridgedeck sag. Then again, the local anarchists don't either... That's OK. I don't think it's really sagging. His bridgedeck looks stronger than the floor of my shed. I've parked a mower in there for years and it weighs about 800 lbs, more or less the same as a Harlisaki. No sag. I suspect that the FH is stronger than many here believe.... I keep referencing Thor Heyerdahl here and even Weed Stowes first cat as examples... Haters and naysayers kept putting down HR until he broke... Cyber bullying.... Are you all happy now? Fucknuts!Sez one of the biggest cyber bullying Reid haters on this site. Oh the irony, the irony...HR never did a void Ho movie, nor painted shit with shit, nor claimed to be a world class sailor or claimed to be preparing NASA for a trip to mars... He is just an unusually special needs kid with an anarchist dream. Nor did he drop off a prego Soy and keep going...... Got it?

  10. We did and not a stitch of decent advice from you, Slurp Jizz B. Your type is easy to spot, love to pile on, think you're part of the in crowd. It's a safe bet your sailing, cruising, racing, restoration, design, build skills are below average. Fuck you up the ass, you'll get the fits when we feel like it. Plus a bunch...
  11. Poo pooing, damn autocorrect...
  12. Welcome to the dark side Mike... All these "Anarchists" poo poking HR and just railing against everything.... Fun stuff...
  13. Boston1 is just whitey bulger from southie... Thinks he knows sumpting, but is just a blowhard like most who post diatribes here. Six pack is just that, you called it.
  14. Back to gibberish eh Rod. Why do I get the idea you think your controlling the conversation, and every time it starts getting a bit to real you revert to nonsense like the above post. Do you think its somehow resetting the tone of the conversation ? Does it somehow help you forget the suggestion that you take a good long look at your son, and imagine you surviving, and him not, this fools errand you seem so completely hell bent on. When reality creeps in, by what mechanism do you hold it back ? Rod you asked "what if it works" Don't you think, even for a brief moment the more important question is, "what if it doesn't" Take a long hard look at your family Rod, how many of there lives is it worth spending, just so you don't have to admit you fucked up. Good golly, do you need a hobby? Let be a bit... STFU...
  15. Exactly what do YOU have?Both... Yachtmasters is accepted worldwide...
