      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.

  2. Flying Dutchman Fix Up

    And it goes back in so halyard can be internal. On my AC, mast is all hollow, on FD mast is alu and two walled.
  3. Flying Dutchman Fix Up

    YES, AND YES, WILL TAKE MORE AND SHARE. It allows the halyard to only be 6" long in actual use.

    I'm in for DCYC as it's way closer for me, keep us informed!
  6. Flying Dutchman Fix Up

    It is the proctor gold alu spar, I made and installed the wire to line splice and halyard lock, so no more compression. When you raise main it cleats in and locks, to lower, pull down a bit untill swaged ball lifts bail and allows halyard to return to deck. When it works is amazing, have had trouble with bolt ropes and stuff on my AC, so hopefully this is better.
