      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. I love all these people suggesting designers after one or two lines from the prospective owner. He didn't ask us to make a list of all designers alive today. And the owners preferences will definitely sway the answer in favor of a couple designers. Give it time.
  2. Do the Florida SORC distance stuff. One race a month. Leave the boat on the hard at Cracker Boy in between. Boom.
  3. Holy fuck
  4. Fully crewed? Relatively shorthanded? Going for a fast handicap boat (planing like a big TP52) or a slow handicap boat (like a swan)? Comfortable or uncomfortable? Professional crew or amateur?
  5. Latest goss is the boat does the race to Hobart as Comanche and gets handed over there. Possible?
  6. How about 3rd Place in the absurdly competitive Etchells Winter Series this past season: http://www.etchellsfleet20.org/sheets/2017 Biscayne Bay Series Standings.pdf
  7. How environmentally friendly are the unrecyclable, petroleum based construction materials in this thing?
  8. Looks like something from the FP a couple years ago...
  9. Should rename this thread "off soundings series and high pressure systems"
  10. Hey Cliff, go piss up a rope. We get it.
  11. European models? Where? Swedish I hope.
  12. Except using Personal AIS is possibly the best way to find an MOB - especially at night.
  13. No way, Jose!
  14. 30 feet long. No bowmen. Nobody over. You should give your bowman a break.
  15. Keels? What about lazzarette covers?
