      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. A similar program happened to the Arlington Yacht Club in Arlington, TX. It was a nightmare. We ended up suing the city, and lost. They kicked us off two years ago, and the mayor quickly had our building torn down. To this day, it sits as it did two years ago and there is no longer organized sailing on my lake. It SUCKS. Big Gov Sucks! Land Grabs SUCK, it's totally frustrating.
  2. Excellent. Thank ou for the help!
  3. I'm trying to find the US portsmouth rating for the Aero in all three configurations. Anyone know them?
  4. My club is doing some Portsmouth racing, and when looking at the ratings this morning to do the scores, I was very confused to see that the 4.7 is rated FASTER than the Radial? DPN for the 4.7 is 95.4 and the Radial is 96.7. Am I looking at something wrong here?
  5. Thanks. Don't know why I'm leery about going over there with no captain. Done the BVI's, St. Vincent and Puerto Rico all bareboat. We have a set itinerary, think we will have a combo of ports and remote anchorages. We are only doing five days because we are headed to London for the balance of the trip (also spending a couple days on either end of the charter). Can't wait to get over there.
  6. Hello, taking the family to Croatia in mid-June to sail around for 5 days. We've barefooted for 15 years, so this whole captain thing is a bit new to me. What is the protocol on tipping a captain over there?
