      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. Sydney to Hobart 2017

    Sorry sailors of the world, but betting the IJ will be getting a little Xmas bonus in their bank acc’s and the protest will get swept under the carpet, And the big C won’t win, sorry again but a family with that much cash and a boat that only does the Hobart doesn’t like that silver wear leaving their mantle piece...... can’t see the any other outcome
  2. Transat Jacques Vabre

    The 60s are about 900 miles behind the VO Dogs, there’s still a chance of a catch up......
  3. Transat Jacques Vabre

    Even with a couple of hundred mile head start, I’m backing the 60’s to catch the Dogs to the equator, or get dam close........
  4. Transat Jacques Vabre

    What’s the chances of the 60s beating the Volvo dogs to the equator? Any thoughts
  5. Team Vestas grounded

    No comment..............
  6. New Cubed - First Supermaxi Since Speedboat

    If the section of the case is big enough, you can put curved boards in the boat as long as the radius of the board doesn't exceed the case section, with self aligning bearings - Note Prb had this as to be able to change the boards with out having to put new cases in the boat...........
  7. New Cubed - First Supermaxi Since Speedboat

    Got to admit it doesn't look too pretty as it is at the moment.. Only thing even remotely innovative on this one is the single-skin hull with stringers. Never been done on a boat this big, and is significantly lighter than core/panel construction. Otherwise, it is a very conventional canter, designed well to achieve some very specific goals. VPLP have been doing single skin in the bow for years......... check out Safran, Groupe Bel etc etc. I would of guessed it had by knowing it was a VPLV design..... nothing new there Mr Clean dude
