      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. Henderson 30?

    Not a problem... a few in the Bay Area... Ft 10 do well in the Whidby Island heavy air races... I don't enjoy racing my lead mine in 35+, I don't enjoy racing the FT10 in 35+, we have done it and averaged 23.3 knots for about 40 miles... in more modest conditions speeds in mid to high teens, fully powered up in 12knots, travels well, great boat to take to marquis events for some handicap or OD racing, great versitile platform for anywhere on any coast in any conditions
  2. Henderson 30?

    compare it with the FT10.... Eerie crews on one when he isn't using his Hendo or they are going head to head FT 10 is still in production, current design, no runners, get by with less crew,
  3. Joke

    members of congress are allowed franking priviledges, does that mean Barney Frank is a ranking member with many friends
  4. Joke

    congressman anthony weiner can be brought up on charges for sending junk mail. phunny congress allows their members to send their packages free congress is looking into abuse of their staff photos
  5. J/111 Goes Sailing...

    Just as a mode of comparison, what would a Melges 32 be doing speed wise in these conditions? How about the SC37? Don't get me wrong I like J boats and I know it's apples and oranges. What is the first hull number coming to Chicago? FT 10 have been doing that speed and more since day 1... as have the Melges 32, Columbia 32, etc ... J-111 looks good... a great sized boat to play on, good to see more offerings in this size and sport boat range... just pick one, one for every budget no reason not to get 'er done
