      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. Say It from the FP

    I had to get up in the morning at 10 o'clock at night half an hour before I went to bed!
  2. CRW 2018

    B-25 showing well. Even nabbed a bullet.
  3. Say It from the FP

    We lived in a hole in the ground!
  4. CRW 2018

    I'll be interested as to how the B-25 does. Seems short for the class.
  5. Connect a gps to expedition

    He would likely refer you to Artie Means. Artie has been bailing me out of connectivity trouble for the last ten years or so.
  6. Sailors Powerboat

    Surveyed this yesterday. True North 38. Pretty cool boat with, err, unique looks. Huge cockpit, swing open transom doors, nice galley, large head, sleeps four, horrible engine room.
  7. Pac Cup 2018

    Sooo. No One Eyed Jack for Pac cup?
  8. The 70th Brisbane to Gladstone race.

    I can get to the multihull version of yb, but not the mono. Any help on links?

    Keep stroking it. You won't get there. You have no game. OUT!
  10. Hancock

    Soo. Super soft.
  11. Hancock

    Soft? I don't agree with all that BH say's. I am at best, an offshore amateur . But, his resume is far stronger than mine. How about yours, Jack_Sparrow?
  12. VOR Leg 7 Auckland to Itajai

    This is so true. '99 Transpac I was overboard off the bow of the boat, attached by my tether, but no physical way I could get back on deck by myself. The crew were dealing with the kite takedown after I had tripped the tack. They had no idea that I was drowning upside down off the bow with the boat still going 10+, until they had the kite down. Then it was where's Doug? I owe my life to Alan and Davey. But, I also owe my life to that tether. If I had not been clipped to the boat, I likely would not be typing this now.

    Thoughts go out to the Fisher family.
  14. What a money pit!

    Extra money not spent sailing or putting the kids through school, (one down, one to go) gets spent on my girls:
