      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.

    Sailing, the missus and the kids. Not in that order .......maybe!
  1. 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
  2. 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.
  3. Perry Sliver Class Day Sailor

    It truly is. . It's a privilege to be able to hang out with you all. .
  4. Webb Chiles-Opua to Capetown 2016

    Ditto. A couple of friends of ours with a boat on the hard in St. Martin will probably not be so lucky. Fingers crossed until we get some news
  5. A BBQ fork chucked in a drill will clean that out in no time.
  6. Webb Chiles-Opua to Capetown 2016

    The pic from the boat yard certainly looks encouraging.
  7. Sourcing replacement shackle screw pins

    Buy a stainless bolt that fits. You can drill the head for a seizing wire
  8. My newest project

    Forgive me but I think that's a McVay Bluenose 23
  9. My newest project

    The Carbon cutter looks just great. the darker stripe makes all the difference.
  10. Uglyboat Admiration Society Hang Out

    Hey, look, it has a bigger sister. The venerable Grampian 34
  11. Uglyboat Admiration Society Hang Out

    I admire that they were able to make a sailboat look like a RIB
  12. GRP Classic around 28-33'?

    A stove can be added without too much trouble. Friends of ours cruised on their Mega every summer, for years. . You could also check out Good Old Boat magazine Issue 100, I think where there is a good article on a "cruisified" Mega
  13. US vs Canadian Forecast Accuracy?

    Can you check a few other sources? . I usually check Windfinder, or wind guru to see if they agree with the Environment Canada forecast.
  14. Origami Boat Thread

    Brent's boat should be called "Repus Elohssa" in honour of its owner.
  15. Something different for CA

    If you wanted to channel the run runners you could call it "Rumaway"
