      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.

    Thats the greatest thing I've ever seen. The run itself, the fricking spaceship sail rocket, Malcolm and his sums, filming it with an RC plane and nonchalantly writing the new outright sailing record on the side of a shipping container with a sharpie. Jesus Christ! I'm fucking blown away, congratulations to the team and never underestimate Malcolm and his numbers!

    Greetings young Jedi, What is the name and sail number of the boat you have acquired. As Canousletter Editor it is my responsibility to keep track of what boats exhist and who own them. I'm glad you are having some fun. best, Willy Hi Willy I'm afraid i'm living vicariously through this post about IC's, the boat i'm renovating is an old school UK Solo (jack holt stylee) and i'm guessing you don't need the name and sail number for it?! Hopefully one day I'll be able to provide you with a name and a sail number for a IC, but i fear that's a few years away! cheers for showing an interest tim

    i'm currently balls deep tarting up a 30 year old solo (not the swift kind), i'm hacking out bits of rotten ply, patching a leaky centerboard case, trying to ignore the skanky solid ply rudder blade thats more whittled than shaped and I'm trying to fair a hull thats so lumpy trench warfare could break out any minute. This is the kind of work to make a man question his sanity but having just spent 2 days reading this thread cover to cover i'm totally fired up again on my boat hacking missions! the boats you lot sail and build are ridiculous, i've done a couple of white wee wee's perving at the pictures (i'm not proud of this) once i've cleaned myself up i'm back to a damp and dreary garage with the leaky roof to carry on bringing a shit boat back to life.., reason? i gotta start somewhere if i'm to becoming a boat building jedi. hopefully this thread will still be running in 20 years or so when i got skills! keep up the good work timmay xx
