      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. Centreboard removal

    I don't believe that it would take a "madman" to remove the float from the beams.When they were it stalled in the Wilpy floats (straight foils) the beam to float join was beefed up. It was subsequently additionally beefed up as there was cracking happening due to the foil trying to roll the float off the beam as his was not the constructed original load path. The lock down bolts on the beams also got reengineered after stripping the thread off one due to the changed load path.
  2. G'day Wilpy I didn't want to post this and slow down any momentum you have but my club at Kingston SE could host those nationals if you can't get them to agree to Feb. We have the new Cape Jaffa marina 15km from Kingston SE possible sponsorship and keen as hell for some advertising. It's nearly halfway between Melbourne and Adelaide. North of the marina is no obstacles for 120km

  3. Older fast Aus multies

    I believe that the new carbon mast for Malice is in Port Douglas and the new sails are on order!

    The question is how much do you need. Voodoo Spirit has a self tacking jib and goes like a shower of Sh#t up hill. Go with simplicity every time.
