      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.

    I saw recent pics that showed every piece of deck hardware had been removed. A sad thing to see for a fast boat. Lots of people wanted to play with her but Larry never shared. The winches were removed prior to the 2010 Cup race. In case the legal battle regarding USA made parts went through, all the winches on Sayonara were American made. They could then put them on the Tri to make it race legal.

    hmm I don't feel too bad about not being in the water yet and doing basic maintenance things like exterior varnishing tonight. Congrats on the second, what is the word on firefly (is it ex something or other?). Imagine the delivery home won't exactly be to toasty either. It was really cold on the delivery home ... 'how cold was it?'

    Nice! In the past several days I have invested my check from the guy who boat the boat. cycled a lot, thought about all the checks I used to write, and all the time I used to spend driving down to the boat to get it ready for the season, etc. So Glad those days are gone now... you'll miss it boss..... for sure
