      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. The Next Boat-----2020

    Seems like a very complicated way to design and build a trimaran....
  2. Vendee Globe 2016?

    AFAIK you can't retract the board Have a look at the multiple pictures and footage, they all retract towards the hull. They just don't go up through the deck as an extraction point. On HB the foils do go up trough the deck. But like you said, not as an extraction point Why would they design the foils in the way if they can't be extracted like that? Seems like a good way of getting yourself some extra windage . Geometry
  3. what is it?

    This is the correct answer. More information here: http://www.allatsea.net/grenada-friends-experts-build-new-caribbean-33/

    Maitre Coq's foil has been repaired (currently in the final post cure) and will be delivered to North Cove in a few hours from Bristol, RI. -Britt Carbon Ocean Yachts A late finish judging by the bottle of beer. For sure...

    would love it, my brothah from anothah mothah Ohhhh Daddy is excited....... Kitty, I would be up for a guest appearance this season on BDP if it works for you and can work out schedule wise. I am practicing and racing in the Med on the new Aegir all of June, the first 1/2 of July and first 1/2 September but will be in New England otherwise. I know, tough schedule huh... Cheers, Bobo
  8. Falcon, Tripp/Goetz 50 on Craigslist

    I trimmed main on her for the 08 season. Fun boat to sail, for sure, but definitely struggles under IRC. I would suggest a survey. I do not know what has transpired since that season but she was in pretty rough shape last I saw her (sitting in the water over the winter in Stamford).

    Kitty, are you doing Marblehead-Halifax this year? I am scheduled to be racing on a boat called Falcon, out of Stamford, CT for M-H but I would love to give that bar crawl of ours another shot in halifax.... -bobo
  10. Gulf of maine scuttlebut

    How true. Looking forward to getting back up there for some sailing and partying this summer. See you all soon.
  11. Gulf of maine scuttlebut

    If it replaces Yarmouth I would want to race that with you bastards on Bandito. I, like you, love a good distance race. If we could make Yarmouth as fun as it was I am sure we can with somewhere new - the BDP folks can help out in the fun department as well....perhaps another bar crawl like in Halifax...boy, that hurt...
  12. Gulf of maine scuttlebut

    Damn it! What a fun race, I had a blast last year. The sail there was great, the party on the dock rocked, the margarita's on beausoliel kicked ass, the town is as whacky as Canadians can be--such a good time. This just sucks. edit: The delivery home for me was not so great.

    50 beers in 50 bars, aye. The last bar I remember was number 16, it looked like a swanky library and I had a Grey Goose on the rocks and argued it should count as two.
  14. Gulf of maine scuttlebut

    You will be celebrating when we get to Halifax

    Quite the contrary, dragons are fast. For an example please note Mari-Cha IV.
