      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. My collegue offered me a VHF 54 because he cannot change the MMSI sign. He have two same VHF's and succeeded changing it in one. It seems that there is maximum number of allowed MMSI change. Is this true? Also, the nearest service center is in UK, it should cost more than a half price sending from our site.

  13. the most frightening engine in the world....

    In our island every boat from 4.5 to 7m have a Volvo 1 cyl or 2 cyl. Electric starter is very rare. Just insert the shaft for manual starting, open the decompression lever, make few turns and close the lever. It starts always, no full throtle. The only problem that people have is cooling system with sea water - usualy they remove the thermostat to reduce scale.

  15. Same hose for manual and electric bilge pump?
