      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. J/29 Shopping

    Buy the one in Traverse City. Been indoors for 16 years unused! http://www.yachtworld.com/boats/1984/J-Boats-J-29-3009739/Traverse-City/MI/United-States#.WbiE8siGPIU I have nothing to do with this boat, just thought if your buying a J/29 that is not Hustler, than this is in better shape than any of them.
  2. J/22 vs Sonar 23

    J/22 is more fun. I have an 11 year old and she has always sailed on it, but now at 11, she is in her second year as bow chick on the J/22. Much better for kids, less loads, less upkeep, less cost for sails, dockage, maintenence. National class with major regatta's and high resale values. J/22 all the way.
  3. Tripp 33 polars

    I will check with Mike, thanks Cam. Looking forward to giving her a spin
  4. Tripp 33 polars

    Any chance I can get a copy of those as well?
  5. Listen to Gouv, he is what you call an expert!
  6. What size Tuff Luff for a J/33?

    Your sailmaker will know. JWW is right though, if it down by the feeder, just shorten it. However if it is not, you could repair it using West System G-Flex epoxy. Go to fix it forum and ask bruce (Gougeon tech advisor) for details if needed.
  7. J/22 rules changes

    wont make much difference. Talking to someone smarter than me, there really is no plan to change the sail shapes. Longer battens will extend sail life on the jib for sure. Be interesting if the two major lofts decide to keep offering the short battened sails asTDG suggested. If so and the mix and match becomes a reality, than this rule change (if implemented) will fail to live up to its intent.
  8. J22 Midwinters

    Great job and congrats to Vic Snyder, Kevin Doyle and Aaron Snyder. Long time coming and well deserved!
  9. New North J/22 tuning guide

    That is why we love this class! Sure it is a good boat and very even old vs newer, but the people who sail in it are why we keep coming back!
  10. J/88 Opinions

    Port Sanilac Marina is sitting on one that is pretty well setup, I think they have had it for 2 years.
  11. Aegean, that boat sold and went to Charlevoix Michgan.
  12. contact Chris Howell at the J/22 class, he may be able to get you in touch with one of the Annapolis J/22 fleet guys. www.j22.com
  13. Call Randy at USWatercraft. I believe they have barely used 2003 sitting there for sale.

  15. J22 Fixed Portlites

    You can assume he meant the glass since he talks about the holes being farther from the edge and it would give you a little more surface area for the goop. I have done this and my windows did not leak.
