      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.

  2. US Watercraft receivership ? (Alerion etc)

    Wrong Johnstone. Peter of gunboat fame bought alerion rights but randy borges will continue to build in Quonset Pt
  3. US Watercraft receivership ? (Alerion etc)

    500 for 29 and 100 for 24
  4. US Watercraft/Waterline in receivership?

    So now Randy and Peter are joining forces to build Alerions? Each person ran a boatbuilding company into bankruptcy so is this one doomed before they even begin?
  5. US Watercraft receivership ? (Alerion etc)

    Anyone go today? How were the boats? Heard the Alerion line sold to Peter Johnstone for 80k.
  6. Soft Jib Hanks

    Blur, given your vast experience how would you rate them? Would if doing inside gybes?
  7. Is there ANY Antifoul that works? ( Bottom paint?)

    Second this. Switched from Vc offshore to this about 6 years ago. Not as hard and smooth as vc but still wet sands well. We paint every other season and only get a mile slime buildup after 6 weeks. Easy to wipe with a sponge and usually only in areas the sun can reach
  8. Soft Jib Hanks

    Anyone have a soft hank with a dogbone?
  9. US Watercraft receivership ? (Alerion etc)

    Got a link?
  10. Soft Jib Hanks

    The sails stay wet so want to elimnate the corrosion that occurs. The grommets have been green since season one and every few weeks I need to work the hanks to get them working. Time for a change!
  11. Soft Jib Hanks

    Looking to convert classic bronze hanks to soft hanks. Anyone have info on how they are done? I have seen some cc30's with them but not up close
  12. US Watercraft receivership ? (Alerion etc)

    Where do you see what they have received bids on?
  13. New/Surplus HALL Carbon masts for sale; Bene 10R, Farr 36

    I know where they have been testing and sailing out of. I can attest the wing can stay up tied to dock in very windy conditions, rotate freely and have no issues moored near other boats. The foiling Ted boat is pretty cool too
  14. ORC and sport boats

    Whats the consensus on how they are treated? Are they punished due to disp/length ratio like IRC? Melges 32, CC30, ID 35, one off euro sport boats etc.
