      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. best 32-35 foot cruising cat

    Merlin, such a damn cool boat. Shame there are no more.....................
  2. We send milk powder all over the world........... And that is a pig-rooter of a boat
  3. Schionning cats are fast

    Hi Ben, it was mentioned in an article recently that there was a smaller (than 12m) Arrow in development. When will this eventuate?
  4. Rapido 50

    Funny, I always thought a tri has the best of both mono's and cats! +1
  5. Looking for Rogue Wave

    Regrettable but WTF. Kinda interested in the wing masted pod-cat (maybe??) in the background.
  6. Crowther 33 v"s Grainger 920

    A 'Crowther 33' tri could be a Kraken, Tempest (1960s), or a Buccaneer (1970s). The Twiggy was designed around 1978 and updated later. If you are thinking of buying one check this; http://www.boatdesign.net/forums/multihulls/twiggy-drawings-42835.html
  7. caption contest

    You can see the advantages of the folding-mast (paf) reefing system.
  8. Yes. Just what everybody wants - to get away from it all with 28 others......................
  9. F-22 Update

    More like a Beachcomber I think for the fuckee :-) The raised deck has obviously been done to increase space below, but to me what makes it look most odd is the contrasting bow rakes. But never mind they'll sell if the price is right. Bit of a step back from the Sprint Mk 2 which looks pretty good IMO. http://sail.corsairmarine.com/special-price-promotion-on-sprint-750s-until-end-of-december-2016 However, if Corsair had continued with Tony Grainger they might be bringing to market something like...... http://www.rocketfactorytrimarans.com/rocket-range/rocket-26/
  10. Nice job. The smaller cabin is probably better on this design. Could you still add the designed beams and folding system?
  11. Corsair Pulse 600

    Thanks Wayne. Great review.
  12. Homebuild

    And now a slightly larger version with a cockpit.................. http://www.sardineboats.com/voiliers/sardine-run-19/
  13. Bieker-53

    Well done! nice to see a different concept hit the water.
  14. F-22 Update

    Current UK pricing for F-22: A standard F-22 with main & jib is £51,000 ready to go on its composite trailer from our yard in South UK. Yes, there is 20% purchase Tax to add to that. Yes, there is bit of a que An F-22 R [Ali rig] would bump that up to £57,000 + Tax Does 'ready to go' include outboard and safety gear? Or is it a bare boat?
  15. F-22 Update

    Thank you Rushman... That was obvious from Ian's posts 1002, 1006, 1017. However that was not my question.
