      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.

    We'll, so much for that. I gave Zezo a chance. Had me on this board for another 12+ hours and now telling me to gybe and head directly south.

    They primarily do the two Mac races along with the Trans Superior which is held every other year. They're course record holders for the Trans Superior and Bayview Mac, and just recently set the record for the Chicago Mac course a few weeks ago. They cherry picked the weather but it was still cool to watch. Old record was just under 24 hours and il mostro did it in just under 18 hours.

    Yeah, she's been on Lake Michigan for several years now. Home port is Chicago and winters are spent here in Holland. She's in incredibly good condition.

    That's Wizard's prod on the left and Windquest was behind me.

    I think you guys might appreciate this. I went down to check on Shorty this afternoon (drink beer on the boat) and they tucked me in with il mostro.

    Still looking but I think the bowguy hid it. We'll gybe soon...maybe that will shake it loose.

    It was that jackass bowman that finished the beer.

    Correction - Mar Mostro

    I've been sitting 12 hours behind Your Mom now for several days. I ran out of beer, my bow guy finally woke up so it was time to gybe. Zezo's recommendation is to hold this for half a day, wake the bow dude up again for another gybe and take a gradual angle to the south and then back up to the finish. We'll see how it goes. Maybe we'll find the island where Il Mostro was hung up after they lost their rig and we can restock the beer supply.

    I did the same. Got tired of following...6-12 hours behind. And I checked that zezo site and it said to gybe.
