      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. Uglyboat Admiration Society Hang Out

    A big smile from my side , to have a colum "the most ugly boat....." on a forum that pretends to be Anarchist. I would expect such a title on conformistic forum. Okay, so be it. Many boat design features which where pronounced ugly years ago are "en vogue" today. Example the negative bow. I designed my ECO 5.5 catamaran 2001. Everybody found him ugly. Why I designed the boat like this, was never asket and I am not willing to explain it here in the context of your discussion. Today I am copied the design word over and most person like the bow shape and is now looked at as very progressive and modern and nobody find the bow ugly anymore. Here some photos from an other DUO 480 C as built in New Zealand better go to . http://www.duo480cruisergallery.com/ B.K. Apparently, you missed the ADMIRATION part. Welcome aboard. No, no I dit not missed the part. And I hope my English was clear enough to express this. By the way, this is the risk designing boats for amateurs. There "interpretations" are sometimes a bit unusual to say it nicely. Here a image from an other DUO 480C. But here also an image from a more unusual (ugly) new design, my CATAPROA. Yes, it is what the word is implying. Not a cat and not a proa. 4,2m long, 2,em abeam, weoght 85 kg. Here a shot from the first test. By the way, I am not French but Dutch. Correct is that I live in France and in Spain Have fun B.K. B.K
