      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. Schock 35 sailplan line drawing please

    Well, which is it? A sail plan or a line drawing? You could email someone at Schock, like Sascha, rather than asking for something free here but designers tend to like being compensated for using their IP.

    But...why was he naked...?
  3. VOR Leg 2 Lisbon to Cape Town

    As Kevin Spacey has shown us, this might not be the best course of action
  4. VOR Leg 2 Lisbon to Cape Town

    Why? Your premise is flawed because the boats are One Design. Even if you believe Dongfeng has a 1% speed advantage (which, no, they don't, otherwise they'd be 30-40 miles ahead of the fleet right now) you would see no functional difference by modeling at the .05% level which is roughly the difference they've shown so far in this leg. Might as well ask "Forss, would you add the Soviet ballistic missile submarine Red October into the routing options in the tracker? I'd like to see how the Silent Caterpillar drive does against a VO65... "
  5. Dubarry Ultimate Boots Beware !

    Purchased mine in the spring of 2010 and have put them through hard hard use since then. It became official this october: I pulled my right foot out and the sock was soaking wet - while the left side foot was bone dry. Guess they're starting to go. I went around with Dubarry this spring trying to see if they would resole them once the sole started to go and they refused to even try - or give me the discount that others in this thread have received. Since it seems to be a fabric issue, I'm going to look into the Gore-Tex warrantee and see if maybe there's something to be gained there. Otherwise it'll probably be another $400 of my money going to Dub because the Zhiks one make my feet sweat and the HPX ones wear out way too fast.

    Someone should tell those rocks not to move. Been a bad year for it, huh?
  7. Ubi Maior Jib Furler

    So, if I'm seeing this right, the furler is imparting the furling torsion onto the luff of the sail? Thoughts on how this will affect sail shape with long term usage?
  8. US Watercraft/Waterline in receivership?

    Careful, someone got a post deleted and their account threatened for inferring such a thing last time this topic came up.
