      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.

    When your flying downwind and the boat mostly flat, as you heal to weather or leeward your helm push is going from one side to the other, when your dead flat it can feel like the rudder is dead, but introduce a little healing and sensitivity comes back like right now, heal too much like you did, and there is no way out. Keep the CB under the mast is your best tip in the heavy air down wind. A few loud screams help to

    Performance benefit is little granted, but the maint benefit is great, I spent too many springs grinding the keel of my paceship 26, and of a certain mariner 19 keel in a vain attempt to stop the rust. Even a yard sandblast and paint treatment was not very long lasting. I like to do a wax job on the boat, then do a little varnish and call it a year. I love the look of a varnished wood boat......but man it is hard to justify the time when there are so many other things to do.

    space_sailer_20_-_information_brochure_wm-rotated.pdf It is a Space Sailer............yeah, I know, the name is weird. It is Australian design, but this was made in Montana by a short lived company. Big benefit is it is lead instead of iron ballast compared to Australian design.

    This is not a micro, but it is what I got, and we did 12 days on her this summer to Block Island. She's barely a 4 knot-er, but she is 20 feet fun to sail, economical to motor (22 miles on 1.5 gallons at 5.2 knots) inexpensive trailer-able, with simple single axle lead ballast, and no hull or deck core to leak and get soggy Easy to put in and out of the water Fixed fin keel for decent performance, but still only 3.5 feet deep to anchor on the edges. and fun to sail.
