      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.

    Resolute's TransPac 2017 video. TransPac 2017
  2. J/125s Are AWESOME

    More boat porn. TransPac 2017 By the way she's for sale.....
  3. Scary Neel 45 Build Issues

    An older sailor who had shifted to a live-aboard powerboat explained it to me this way. "We wanted to live ON a boat, not IN a boat." Made sense to me.
  4. Spirit-33' s&s

    I grew up sailing on a semi-sistership, capable and wet!
  5. My newest project

    Is Bob F. helping name the other ones too?
  6. Coolboats to admire

    Here's another cool S&S boat, old but also very new. The German mainsheet and the high boom are the only tells. Built in 2010, yours for $950k AUD. https://youtu.be/FzVVhB0jsME
  7. which yacht designer ?

    Paul Bieker or Mark Mills would be my first choices.
  8. PAC 52

    Rumor has that this is it's last bit of racing as BG. Don't know if it's for sale, or already sold.
  9. Frederiksen hardware availability

    Bought out by Ronstan. They probably have something that will fit.

    Nobody at J-Boats has sailed a well tuned and sailed 125 in the ocean, so I don't think they realize how quick they are. At least that's my assumption when I read the silly advertisement for this new boat.
  13. Only if you ignore the effects of waves, which is silly in the ocean. The water surface gets proportionally smoother as the boat gets longer which is a good thing.
  14. Having just raced to Hawaii using COG for heading I can attest that it's too slow to be useful for sailing to the instruments. LoinessRacing, I don't know how much racing you've done offshore when it's pitch black, but it turns out that well tuned instruments are fairly important in those conditions. And the bummer is, even for really good dinghy sailors, to sail well to instruments at night you need to use them during the day as well, it's the only time to learn what the numbers are trying to tell you.
