      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. New Hinckley 53

    Not a big fan of the transom. It seems like a bad compromise. Rest is quite good. Reminds me of Isobel
  2. Sailing Books for Children

    I read this when I was 7. And my father had read them before me... German, though.
  3. Sailing Books for Children

    exactly what came to my mind as first thought
  4. Comparing Specs

    That is sad. I never heard of his name so far, but I frequently use that site and found it to be among the best sources for quick searches and comparisons. Thanks for the info, best of luck to Mr. McArthur and my sympathies to friends and families of Mr. Browning.
  5. Mellow Yellow...

    What strikes me is how high it is compared to its design waterline. And there are already at least eight people on deck, so not much weight to add. Numberwise, my money would still be on a race-ready 25-year old X-332 to beat it, especially on a W/L course. We'll see, I guess...
  6. what is it?

    what happened to beautiful, lean lines ? now it seems to be all rather looking like this:
  7. Anarchy III For Sale ??

    It is important. But not to you.
  8. what is it?

    Nicely done. What's with the artsy work on the transom? Banksy gone crazy or just a malfunction in the paintshop?
  9. Skerry Cruisers

    I know it is not a SK, but still fits here 'Winnie', a Reimers design, a Havskryssaren, I think. The owner wrote a standard book on wooden boat restauration and I think it shows!

    THAT WENT ON A TRANSPAC??? ahem. Sorry. That went on a Transpac? Wow.
  11. Coolboats to admire

    That's the latest incarnation of a Waarschip, right? Cool.
  12. Is that something like Bing?
  13. http://www.balta.fr/gorfou.html
  14. Gofrou and Bihan also came to my mind
  15. Uglyboat Admiration Society Hang Out

    possibly related to this nuke-proof door?
