      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. Coolboats to admire

    BTW Bob, once again, I open a thread and find myself on the edge of my seat, learning from you. If I haven't thanked you for that generosity lately, kick me.
  2. Coolboats to admire

    I'm surprised no one else picked up on this nomination. Agreed! The Shields (like the IOD) is a great boat. I owned hull #54 which. like the #53 pictured, was built by Chris Craft and had a reputation for being 'light'. I loved the boat and wish I hadn't sold it. Another boat I saw but was too late to return to the States to buy fast enough was called BIJOU, I believe, A modern 40' meter boat built in Scandina (might have been Germany, come to think of it) of fiberglass and mahagony that was listed in Annapolis in 1999. Ahhh, the ones tat get away!

    Congrat's on reaching this milestone, Kim. Having a sailboat and not a canoe means the end is in sight! She's looking fine.

    KDH - forget the 'Class A' uniform. Go straight to formal mess dress at the helm.
  6. Hi Mike, I spent the evening reading your blog about yr beautiful COUP D'ETAT, I wish I was in your "boat" shoes now and be out sailing...

  7. Can One Evening Race Association

    Thanks, guys. She's still a terrific ocean boat. Not exactly in the light air league of BG's Farr 400, etc. so on behalf of Doc, grant us heavy weather! We'll likely race double-handed and non-spin but If the forecast is favorable, go the full course. After all, displacement has its virtues.... I didn't know Doc. However, friends did and I can honestly say that during her refit, he was omnipresent. Returning her to NYAC on his behalf is something I've looked forward to. Ironically, as a 'non-NYAC' boat, she can't win the Sitzmark perpetual trophy. But that's probably moot given how rusty we are.... We'll toast Doc with rum and Entenmann's regardless!

    Does anyone remember 'Sitzmark'? Cheers, MikeR Oh, yes - see blog below ...and she's looking forward to her first NYAC Stratford Shoals race (as Coup D' Etat) in maybe 35 years as a tribute to Doc Nuemann.

    yup....why it IS the source and WHY it leaks.
  10. Restoration Ron Holland IOR racer Flirt of Paget (2)

    It's been a while since I checked in here. Great work, FOP! Having taken 2.5 years to get through my own full refit, I can appreciate the emotional milestones of completing this job. Completion of paint is a HUGE boost as she suddenly looks like she'll float again! Replacing hardware becomes a sprint forward in progress. Enjoy!
  11. A bad day of sailing beats just about any good day working from the 'virtual office'or sitting in an airine seat.

    I too am enjoying this thread! For what it's worth, I can imagine how hard it is to stay motivated when the work gets slow (and lonely). But she'll be the project of a lifetime and well worth it when she takes you safely on her second adventure! My present project is the refit of an aluminum boat so this is all quite special. Keep it up!
