      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.

  2. Interesting One-Design Classes only sailed in one area.

    Got to have a pic of the Thames A raters. Always wanted to sail one.

    So you're saying the front is beyond the environment?

    I was on survey on a Swan 45 yesterday at the Sea Scout Base in NPB. Ca. Saw what looked like a Bolt 37 at the Orange Coast college. Did Valkyrie get donated?

  7. Blue water performance cruiser - do they exist?

    OP, yes there is. Steve Dashew designed yachts expressly for shorthanded performance cruising. Larger than your range, but check it out anyway. http://www.yachtworld.com/boats/1980/Deerfoot--2778455/Newport-Beach/CA/United-States#.WeOfMBNSxE4

  9. 25'-30' Sprit Boat For $75k

    Likely won't plane in under 15 true, but might take off a little later. Andrews 28. I think there are two for sale right now. One is in San Francisco and one in Annapolis. Two bedrooms, a bathroom, kitchen, saildrive, lifting keel and rudder, 3,900 lbs +/-. Might be the ticket.
  10. Pac Cup 2018

    Are you talking E-27's or E-37's. 8 E-37's. Looks like I'll be back again then. Tho' it's gonna be hard to beat the '16 race. That was pretty epic.
  11. VOR 2017-18

    Thanks for that Southern. One of my biggest regrets was not signing on to Taylor's NZI Enterprise of the '85-'86 go around. A lot of the team were jumping ship in Ft. Lauderdale, while I was there crewing on a large Swan and looking for new work. I interviewed with Taylor and he wanted me on, but then I chatted with some of the guys that were leaving, and they were older and smarter than me. Turned out to be a bit of a shoestring budget disaster race in the end. But...........

  14. 6 meter Worlds

    I bet it's pretty difficult for the mark set crew to get the marks in position quickly enough, given the speed at which 6 metres sail.
