      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.

    Did sailtracker not anticipate a heavy load of traffic during this race??
  2. Options for a legit USA Challenger

    Elon likes to put a shit-ton of money into things... but things to make the world (and other worlds) a better place.

    Is Virtual Eye working for anyone else?

    still 7 minutes to go, gotta get that ad time in.
  5. Ensenada Race, gonna blow

    Anyone get pics of the start? I heard sector LA trying to hail FREEDOM repeatedly, finally saying to do three clicks, then saying we got that. Very weird. Also, the 2 on the left are the famous FSU chicks that would wear skimpy "shirts" and cowboy hats to the football games back in the early 2000's.

    Copy that Peter, thanks. I didn't and don't see them on marinetraffic, so I don't think they have an AIS onboard.
  7. Just heard this on VHF16. Anyone have details? I pray all are safe.

    Race 3 was actually pretty entertaining, especially that second-to-last leg. Love that BT Sport had to put up a banner just before the commercial "We apologize for any offensive language you may have heard." Jimmy multiple times dropping f-bombs and at the end BA.

    Looks like there is some twist... some "experts" say that's not good for multihull performance.

    Probably studied thousands of stanchions. this was literally the very first thing that came to mind when I read that. Maybe if HR had built sturdy "lifelines" like that, FH would still be floating?

    Looks like the Lightning blueprints got coffee moonshine spilled on them. Also love that the builder was going to sew his own sails out of tarp material (we've seen that many a time of course)

    How about power wash the hull first AND THEN take the pictures? I guess it's so we can SEE it was done last year? He has an entire ecosystem going on down there! I wonder what the kayak looks like...

    what is the line that the guy on starboard and forward is holding? the port side same line looks like it's connected to the aft end of the front element. also, the port mainsheet is going from wing to hull, but starboard is going directly down to the aft beam?
  15. Wait! Wait! I know this one! http://www.nbcphiladelphia.com/news/weird/Oscar-Meyer-Wienermobile-Crashes-in-Pennsylvania-292053331.html oops. i know there's an F'H/HR joke there somewhere...
