      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. new stiletto? any news on this cat?

    Hull profile is very similar to the Viva 27. Much nicer, more modern deck layout.
  2. Great Circle Sails?

    Care to explain? Or is it sarcasm because you don't know anything about the sail maker Great Circle Sails?
  3. Great Circle Sails?

    (Posted in Cruising Anarchy, but since I race I thought it better to post here also.) 41 ft C/R looking for a new main, and have a quote from Great Circle. While I know Brian Hancock gets some grief here, I tend to trust his knowledge. Anyone with first/second hand experience with their sails?

  5. Foam backed vinyl liner

    Beneteau uses a foam backed liner in the cabins of its cruising boats. Over time the adhesive fails and the vinyl falls. Has anyone successfully re-applied the vinyl. how did you do it? Alternatives to re-install?
  6. Sydney to Hobart 2017

    Is the start replay available anywhere to watch....in the U.S.?
  7. Watching the Hobart in the US

    Is the start replay available anywhere? In past years it was easy to find. All the You tube videos state it is unavailable.
  8. Navigation App for Amazon Fire?

    j, please explain, thanks.
  9. Navigation App for Amazon Fire?

    Does the Amazon Fire have gps, or does it need something like a Bad Elf?
  10. North sails ,pricing, discounts

    I am in the market for new race sails. Longer that a carbon tri-radial panel sail from one of the other bigs (UK, Quantum, Doyle, etc.)? Why do you say that? At what premium cost? Average useful life? Thanks for any info.
  11. Raymarine Axiom, reviews?

    Anyone using the Axiom have any comments, reviews?
  12. SA Approved

    4 burners on the stove is overkill. Place another burner in the V berth and you might have something.
  13. I have a leather cover on my wheel, it has a suede finish to it. I keep it covered most of the time, but it still seems to have gotten a little dried out. I would like to add some type of leather conditioner to it that won't make it feel oily. Any recommendations?
  14. Mac Race multihulls

    Anyone have info on the 4 multi's that apparently dropped out (according to the yellowbrick tacker)? Smyth was on Earth Voyager, he seldom quits a race.
  15. Cleaner Wax for bogus boat cleanup

    All joking aside, I would like some suggestions on a reasonable way / how to polish / wax a 35 foot sailboat while it is in the water. I won't haul it out for another year, and the hull is quite dull.
