      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. There's also Boystown. So a Sunday morning thing on it recently. Looks like they're doing good work.
  2. +1 Jewingiv. I live here in Charleston and we are actually leaving on Vacation. They're estimating a million extra people in town. The roads are gonna be horrendous.
  3. So I live right on the path in Charleston, SC but apparently my wife wasn't paying attention and we are going on vacation up in the finger lakes in NY. Don't know if I'm that disappointed though as they are expecting an extra one million people in town for the event.
  4. I don't think this is an issue at all. If some fat ass is blocking the compass, just tell them to move!!
  5. Did you catch what country it was registered in. Most likely not the U.S..
  6. I have a great S2 9.1 that might be in that price range would make a great cruiser with a good turn of speed!
  7. Wow! Zonk, Your daughter"s writing is fantastic. Head over heals better than anything you might find on the front page around here. Hope she keeps it up 'cause she has a knack for it
  8. Charleston has a pretty active racing fleet. The sea breeze fills in most afternoons which makes it much cooler than Savannah. WAter depth isn't bad, we have 2 M32's, 3 ID 35's and some other larger boats that race consistently.
  9. I've got a 9.1 for sale cheap. Unfortunately it's on the east coast. The 9.1 would fit the bill though
  10. With that big of a lever there would be no question of the person getting dunked on my boat.
  11. I'm with you Will. People throw up pirate flags way to nonchalantly. There is a lot of meaning behind those flags and none of it good. Won't let one of those near my boat.
  12. Many of the Charleston Boats had full measurements but that is because Dave Hobbs came down and measured a bunch of boats for free one weekend last month. The sole reason to get more boats to participate. Even though we ended up class racing (105s) we got measured and got a an ORC club cert for 100.00. Not really price prohibitive. Matt, What was measured? My point about the price leans more towards boats that do not have a hull file. ORC could be more attractive to those boats if they found a way to mitigate the cost of a full measurement. Will, I believe they did the full measurements with incline and free boards. We had to get our sails measured and a certificate from the sail maker. From what I understand it was enough for the ORCi but not positive (I was on vacation at the time and the other owners took care of it). They did as promotional thing to try and get more boats involved. I think that the normal cost is somewhere in the 8 bucks a foot range for the initial survey.
  13. Bob, Just saw this at the dock in Charleston. She's a little way from home. https://www.dropbox.com/s/mcu9mno9qn3ofji/2017-04-20%2015.34.19.jpg?dl=0
