      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. what is it?

    was thinking the exact same thing!
  2. nice wildboats. JC, your delusions are as strong as ever I see. I thought you were seeking help? FWIW they did keep the old bow and stern. There are hanging from the walls of the HIYC.
  3. Have been enjoying Abbos silence since WO was rolled. Rolled? They retired.
  4. You may have changed your name thread police but you are still a wanker!
  5. Beginning to wonder if commentating the AC wasn't the only reason KR wasn't onboard....
  6. My my, someone needs to get laid. Either that or a short sharp uppercut. Those numbers came straight from the yellow brick tracker, so if they are wrong, the tracker is wrong, not me. Why don't you enlighten us with your genius if you dispute them. Or are you just a WANKER?
  7. Oh JS, please stop, my sides are splitting. You appear to know even less about comedy than yachting. Sad state of affairs there son.
  8. Finished. Well done team Comanche. Well done Casey Smith, QUEENSLANDER!!! About 5 days, 14 hours and 26 minutes. 15 minutes shy of 24 hours off the record.
  9. If they can tack through those angles and maintain those speeds then they have jumped ship onto a foiling wing-sailed multihull.
  10. Support and ultimate routing decisions are chalk and cheese....Commanders don't do high res race boat specific routing....you and Scanas should start a family and move to Tennessee. More bullshit. I garentee that’s exactly what Commanders are giving Comanche. Anything less would be of zero use to Stan and a total waste of time. Get ya hand off it JS and lay off the wanker pills.
  11. Horseshit. Of course Ken is running routes. How the hell else can you compare different weather models accurately? Of course Stan would still make the final call but he will be getting plenty of input from Commanders. Think about it. One bloke is bouncing around in a smelly cold cramped environment eating shit food and drinking shit coffee getting bugger all sleep, hunched over a couple of laptops. The other bloke is sitting in an air conditioned office look at several 25 inch + screens, powered by a kick arse pc with a lightening fast internet connection eating good food, drinking good coffee and getting quality rest between shifts. You really think Stan is so arrogant and stupid that he would ignore the advice of someone as experienced as Ken with that kind of a set up behind him?
  12. Actually Ken Read confirmed in an interview yesterday that Stan was getting support from Ken at Commanders. Outside assistance with weather is legal in record attempts. Have to agree that Stan has no equal (IMHO Mark Rudiger was the only guy who could match him, may he RIP) so the benefits of the support are debatable. That said, fatigue can do funny things to the mind.
  13. Only a 1100 to go. She's starting to look pretty solid. Fingers crossed. I wanna see Casey's name go in the book!
