      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. J27 predomonent sailmaker?

    I agree with Andrew. Give Travis Odenbach, Kris Werner, or Doug Burtner a call at Quantum Sails, Rochester (585) 342-5200: https://www.quantumsails.com/en/lofts/rochester
  2. J-27 vs J-80

    It's not, because I now own Amethyst. He's probably looking at the one for sale in the SA classifieds.
  3. J-27 vs J-80

    I own and race a J27 and have crewed extensively on J80s for many years. Both boats are a blast to sail. I also day sail my 27. I bought the J27 rather than an 80 because it has a real cockpit and cabin for day sailing, something that you might want to consider with young/new sailors on board. The division that I race in at my club is me (PHRF 126) and 3 very well sailed J80s (PHRF 122 w/ 135% #2). Sometimes we're close, sometimes we're not. I usually race the 27 with 4, have done it with 3, 5 is best to keep it flat. We have gone with 3 on the 80, 4 is best to keep it flat.
  4. Restoration Ron Holland IOR racer Flirt of Paget (2)

    I've been following this and Larry's thread for a while. Great project! While cleaning the basement this winter, I came across my early 80's collection of Yachting magazine. I couldn't resist browsing through them before I throw them out. I found this ad for FOP in the brokerage section of the October 1984 issue. Interestingly, a lot of the boats over on Larry's thread appear in the articles and in the brokerage section.
  5. never fuckin' mind

    All I need are some tasty waves, a cool buzz, and I'm fine.
