      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.

    I believe that Mr Beck may also be a very good negotiator.

    Fucking cheatings cunts !! Blatant fucking cheating cause they're all running scared shitting themselves from what they've seen of the Kiwi's so far who have taken a big punt and gone outside the square. I fucking hope like hell the Kiwi's bring this cup home and sort of this fucking mess once and for all. I'm not a Kiwi and was very excited about this AC but am close to the point of walking away from this bullshit which makes me very sad and angry that it's come to this. It's a fucking joke !!

    The more I look at the stump thing for the shrouds the more I hate it. Super mega fugly. Hope it works though.

    Haven't been in the thread for a while so not sure if it's already been mentioned but Loyal snapped the luff cord of their brand new spinnaker in the big boat race on Tuesday. Cocko was on board made a few hectic phone calls to get things moving to sort it out ASAP. Replacement cord has to come from overseas. Timing for the Hobart a potential issue by the looks of some of the faces on board.

    From the sail world article. "This is Perpetual Loyal's final Rolex Sydney Hobart campaign and we intend to go out with a bang", Perpetual Loyal's Skipper/owner Anthony Bell said.

    How's the finish on the hull underneath ? It's like a mirror, you can see the cradle reflecting on it.
