      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. Ramming Speed! Tall Ship Docking Adventures

    Look at her and listen to her: it's always too late with her type. My guess is that she has a lawyer on retainer for whenever she decides to play the divorce card.
  2. Sailing around the world in a San Juan 24

    In which they rescue the humans, not the boat. The fact that Rimas gets them to rescue the boat (which is arguably beyond recueability) is a tribute to his hypnotic appeal.

    In southern California, the CG won't tow you in. They will take you off your boat to save your life, but they won't save your property. That's up to you with the paid help of the several sea-help services available. Best you have a valid credit card with sufficient limit.
  4. Ramming Speed! Tall Ship Docking Adventures

    Same reason Rimas has FB fans/adorers/enablers--they don't have a clue about boats or the ocean but find the notion "romantic" and harkening to a time when things were "better." Don't get me started on how lame playing pirates is! To be authentic, all you need is a cowboy bandana on your head, be shit-faced drunk, and say, "Arrrrgh!" until everyone wants to kill you.

    You nuts?!? Those are nowhere floppy and saggy enough to be Janet Jackson.
  6. Sailing around the world in a San Juan 24

    Rimas may indeed be a mentally damaged simpleton, but that in no way excuses him for being an inconsiderate asshole.
  7. Rimas recurring rescue

    Why the fuck would you start a new thread when a perfectly functional train-wreck already exists?
  8. From the "WTF" files

    I'd love to read the story but the pop-ups completely block it out. Fuck the Kitsap Sun!

    DFG? Too obscure. Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft?

    Larso checks in here. Ask him! via PM.

    Perfect name for a boat that won't hold a steady course: Wanderer!

    Hotrod lost the Harlsaki but eventually made it to Hawaii, Big Island. Got his hot rod shipped there and has been finishing it up. Looks great! Hotrod fits in quite well with the Hawaii vibe. I think he has found his place in the sun. He seems mellow and content.
