      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. Older well known IOR Boats

    Bill Langan back end.
  2. Totally different boat from RM! And a seriously good sailor on a boat he knows well.
  3. Ofcet. Some Archambault models now available from BG Race. RM hardly performance! Sunfast 3200 and 3600 outselling the rest put together. Check out the Transquadra entries and results for a status report.
  4. IRC Rating Impacts

    Plenty of optimised J/109s down around that level.
  5. high tension 36

    Remind me the name of the original owner please.
  6. high tension 36

    Have the feeling I sold BBIII back then, when I was at Berthon?
  7. Dehler

    37 is an older Van de Stadt design, whereas 29 is a Judel/Vrolijk. Quite different in many ways.
  8. Pogo30 vs Rm890

    "scope for customisation to suit your comfort needs" sadly means turning a hare into a tortoise.
  9. Flying Fifteens

    Where is "the north end of the Clyde river"? Do rivers have ends? The Clyde flows mainly north, till Glasgow ish, then west where it becomes the Firth of Clyde (estuary then bigger still), and said Firth then turns south. Just saying ....
  10. Paul Whiting designs

    You sure it is not a Farr design. Hull, keel, rudder all look possible? Perhaps the back end has been modified.
  11. Pogo30 vs Rm890

    Light as in luminous - I did say inside ....
  12. Pogo30 vs Rm890

    Chalk and cheese! You buy a Pogo 30 to sail fast, race offshore (not under most rating rules though), and have a blast. DO NOT ADD WEIGHT, as you compromise the whole concept. The RM is a smart boat, but utterly different. Go cruising, faster than many others, enjoy the relatively spartan feel as this makes the boat light and spacious inside. Surprised to find the 2 on the same shopping list.
