      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. Venture (not MacGregor) Memories...

    Came back from Hawaii in 80....looking for a table saw at a yard sale....and the guy tells me YOU SHOULD BUY THIS BOAT. I looked over at this Mac 21 on a trailer with a Honda 5 and I say; let me measure my drive way......1000$ later I have a sailboat that me and buddies go out on on Sundays, drink beer and listen to reggae on....very cool. One afternoon we pull up to the dock and this guy looks over and said WOW, you have a 2 oz genie and a special this and that...you need to come out and race with us......cool....and you should join our little YC and you can park your boat at the harbor!!! very cool. First race we get in and one of the old guys (my age now) said to me how do you keep your rig up, the mast looks like a S and is in danger of breaking!.....you need and adjustable back stay and .......many more things. Slowly I learned how to sail, rig boats, maintain my fleet, met my wife, and tons of other great people, traveled the state, risked my life and enjoyed every moment of it. Before I sold the wonderful little boat, a friend said the most fun he ever had in his Mac 21 was to go down to Mexico to the gulf and sail around and drive home. So we did, got three of the largest people and the smallest truck and drove 20 hours straight to Bahia De los Angeles. When we got there we met some people leaving who told us where all the wonderful places they had gone with their Mac 21, gave us tide charts and we spent 10 days in the sun fishing, drinking and living the live of the rich and famous. When we were about to drive home another Mac venture pulls up......we gave them the tide charts, told them of all the wonderful things we had done and the fun continued. Needless to say I have a soft spot in my heart for this POS that most of you would like to burn, BUT it has its place. B
  2. SE..sent you a PM...whats the scale of the drawing, Thanks B
  3. Meanwhile they had a MOB on the starboard side!!! Thanks for the SC27 redesign drawings..SE. I'm open to discussion your idea would take out the pipe berths right now the aft deck behind the cockpit is rotten The easiest solution would be to build a J100 type stern Maybe remove the box behind the winch...at least the driver would be comfortable? waiting to hear back from Arne....he cut the cockpit open on Norn would love to have stern-hung rudder for the kelp element...... Dream on,B
  4. is that Arne's boat??....thats what I'm talking about!
  5. Dawg and DRDNA, next time you come to SB look me up and we will draw some lines on the old boat (it's in the sailing club)....its a year long thing with lots of talk and discussion, Thanks B
  6. Larry....not to worry...j22 is still my love....just the 27 fell in my lap and I need a project (and boy is this a project) Pogen, where can I get more info on Arcadia??,B
  7. I am a new 27 owner in Santa Barbara....with open mind about modifying the boat. Cut the coamings off? DRDNA....really? talk to me.....I like the idea of a swim step....ala J100!? I got a sawzal....and resin...what updates are going to work with this old boat? Brian
