      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. Rudder Gudgeon

    The transom mounted rudder gudgeons on our J/70 keep coming loose. I've noticed some boats using a black sealant or adhesive to mount the gudgeons. Anybody know what it is or any other fix for this annoying problem?
  2. How to tie soft shackles

    Anybody use 'Button Shackles'?

    George just completed the Cool Breeze century 100 mile bike ride from Ventura through Santa Barbara and back. He had the Deardorffs, Wilsons, Sandows and of course Christie cheering him on. The guy's an animal!

    Kudos and Congratulation to SBYC Jr. Tucker Atterbury on his 2nd place finish in the just completed 29er Pacific Coast Championships held at the infamous Columbia Gorge. He mastered the 20-25 knot conditions and out sailed two time Olympic medalist Charlie McKee to earn his silver medal. Way to represent Tucker!! We'll see how you do against the old man at the next laser race:)
