      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.

  5. Uglyboat Admiration Society Hang Out

    That's what it looked like to me
  6. Coolboats to admire

    They both have their charms, so I like them both. I'm a boat slut, I know.
  7. An unusual hitchhiker...

    Not so much a hitch hiker but this guy decided our dinghy was a good place to fish from on Christmas day last year near Fort McRee in Pensacola.
  8. There was that time when I screwed up...

    There was that time when I decided it would be a good idea to replace the lens in the bi-color bow light, as it was cracked from UV exposure. Being a handy kinda fellow, I accomplished this task quite easily before the boat went into the water for the season. Fast forward a few months and we're on our way to the 1000 Islands, doing our usual, through the night Banzai run up the Seaway. The first meet with a ship, after dark, went well. We stayed on the far starboard side of the channel to stay out of the way but something was off but I could not quite figure it out. The next meet, just below the next lock, went the same way but I noticed another clue. Why the fuck are the ships bow light and mine a different color!?? You've probably figured it out by now but I finally realized that I had installed the lens on my bi-color light upside down. The fix only took a few minutes while we were locking up.

    They are known as "Jesus Birds" around here
  10. Show your boat sailing thread

    Blunted. We will see you there next summer. This pic was taken in 40 acres a few years ago. You nailed it when it comes to the smiles. Our kids are 19 and 22 now but still come sailing with us
  11. Hard vs soft dinghy

    We use an ancient Avon from the mid 80s with a 3.3hp outboard. The drink and the motor were given to us and work. No need to change anything.
  12. Show your boat sailing thread

    Yes. Some people just have the eye. Not me though.
  13. caption contest

  14. Mocking Ads on Craigslist

    From the ad:"That said, if you are handy with an axe, I'm sure improvements could be made to the design" At least he's honest
  15. I am the exact opposite of McMurray. . Been sailing for 40 years but don't have anything other than the basic Operators Card, required in Canada. When we chartered, for the first time in 25 years the charter company asked for a sailing resume and a reference. Easy peasy. Oh yeah, one more thing. Do know what you are talking about when you are on yhe phone.
