      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. Thanks for posting the link to the SI story on the 1976 Miami Nassau Race. It was a hell of a ride. I just stumbled across a proof of the Leutwiler shot of us (S&S 49 Cogg-Nizant) crossing the stream. Proof quality not up to Larry's standards but gives a good idea how rough that day was. That's a lot of exposed Palmer Johnson aluminum and lead!
  2. Scanned this picture I found in my Dad's old files. From Left to right: Williwaw Acadia Cogg-nizant (ex-Bay Bea, I was aboard) Love Machine Almost certain it was taken at the start of the 1976 Miami-Nassau Race (SORC) just before we entered the Gulf Stream where things got nasty. Know that famous aerial shot of Love Machine getting hammered by a wave? Was taken about 30 minutes later. I know because Tom Leutwiler got a similar shot of us which I still have (blown up so can't scan). I think we had a few reefs in by the time he took the shot. Should have had one in when this was taken! FYI: Good article on the race if you search the Sports Illustrated archives for "Reaching and Retching to Nassau".
  3. Rip Van Winkle - Irwin 3/4 Ton SORC 81 - Owned by Joe Nuzzo >>That's Wells Cogeshall up front..<< Wow. Never realized my dad ever got that close to the pointy end of a boat.
  4. I just got my nine month cancer "all clear" check up from the Dana Farber Cancer Institute. Lance Armstrong and I have two nuts, between us. Being half the man I used to be and some chemo were a small price to pay for getting rid of the disease. I'm doing the 200 mile Pan Mass Challenge charity bike ride in three weeks. Raised over $8,500 for the Dana Farber so that others might be so fortunate. The PMC riders will raise around $35 million this year. Not bad for a bunch of folks out for a weekend bike ride.
