      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.

  3. S2 7.9 Questions

    The deck is not soft. One of the stanchions near the cockpit has a little give, but that seems to be about it. The moisture meeting was doing a lot of beeping in many places however.
  4. S2 7.9 Questions

    I am looking at purchasing a 7.9 with a group of people. I recently had a survey that showed relatively high moisture readings in the bad areas. Transom/bulkheads/around stanchions/cabin top under winches & cleats/forward most part of the deck. I have read that these boats have traditionally had problems with the core in these areas. The core under the mast step had been replaced in the last 10 years and it wasn't as wet as other areas. We have no intention of doing any core work on the boat. We just want to buy it and go sailing (mostly day sailing and some Weds night races). Does anyone with familiarity with these boats have any comments about what we might be getting ourselves into? For what its worth the boat has excellent sails and running rigging. All of the deck hardware is high-end (replaced from factory original) and it is put in all of the right spots. The boat is well rigged. Any help is appreciated.
