      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. Would appear becoming one
  2. Has Halls NZ merged with Southern Spars? Google address shows same address and equipment is for sale via auction http://www.graysonline.co.nz/sale/496417/engineering-and-toolmaking/unreserved-spars-and-rigging-engineering-closure doesnt appear to be all the jigs and hydraulic motors etc they have mainly equipment for alloy rigs?
  3. Any truth to this? Bit of a white elephant but you will never see anything like it. I know the rig was removed as replacement rigging was going to be to expensive. Maybe the boat is starting to break down?
  4. Their not leaving any chances with the cup, the security guard in ETNZ uniform is never more than 5m from it. Great to see it being handled around though! The peoples cup
  5. Does anyone here know who owns the Magic 25 moored in Watsons Bay, Sydney. Mast is down but would be interested in seeing if the owner wants to sell etc
  6. Notice in ETNZ video today they are sweeping up sand, must have removed the sandbags ready for today?
  7. It's one of the Tom Tom cameras they did a sponsor vid about a few months ago
  8. AC reporter said there isn't racing tomorrow?
  9. If you read the full article, they show the results at the bottom (NZL Retired) in the race against BAR
  10. Just noticed ETNZ don't have number displays on their wing like others, there do they put theirs? Or they rely on the individual tablets?
  11. “It went straight in with his windward bow and right down the inside of our leeward hull, so there is a pretty good dent there. You can definitely see it has punctured right into the cockpit right around where my steering wheel is.” Sounds like a fair bit of damage
  12. Looking at the photos put up by ETNZ last night, some serious design work has gone into the crew clothing. But different to every other team that's for sure
  13. Isn't it a surprise the only team to capsize their AC50 is the team able to race another boat if their first gets destroyed. Maybe flipping it is a way to try write it off?
  14. A RP42, the 70 and now RP100
