      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. How does it work when every boat already built is different? What is the 1D configuration going to be? Are current boats grandfather in or will need for conform? I like the boat but feel this should of been decided before you sold xx number. Do you have a back log of sales that will produce this class in the US?

    Awesome race ending in a great spot. Single handed? Done it before?

  14. 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
