      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. 1180 nm of Lessons in 14 weeks

    I too was a little stuck on my course and sailing worse for it. It was a good lesson. Thanks for the reminder.
  2. 1180 nm of Lessons in 14 weeks

    I believe you. I believed what others have said about DDW sailing in some boats. I wanted to see how she sailed. Brigadoon told me. I believe her too. Next time, I think we will bear "up" a little and sail the course you suggested. Brigadoon really seems to like 120-150 degrees.

    No more than 50' in my case.
  4. 1180 nm of Lessons in 14 weeks

    So what to you put in the little hole in the front?
  5. 1180 nm of Lessons in 14 weeks

    You obviously feel very passionate about this issue. Perhaps you could write an article and post it here so we can learn from your experience.
  6. 1180 nm of Lessons in 14 weeks

    Yes, you're absolutely right. It's whatever I say aboard Brigadoon. Thanks again.

    We had an issue or two but they were minor and well worth the advantages. Thank you.

    I take it you've never seen girls race.
  11. Mocking Ads on Craigslist

    Over 8000 replies since April 2013. Nice goin!
  12. Pilothouse For Puget Sound, $40K Or Less

    You are welcome to see Brigadoon in Port Townsend this winter.
  13. Two sailors and dogs rescued after 5 months

    Track prepped bike and undies under racing leathers. I assume she's the rider. There is nothing wrong with particular pic. The rest of the story, however...
  14. Asym's on boats designed for symetrical kites

    We've had good luck on Brigadoon with this North Sails Asym and an ATN snuffer. About ten minutes after this we were hit by a very strong squall. I was able to douse the sail quickly and secure it on deck. I haven't been able to use this sail as much as I'd like to, but when I do, it's always been a good decision.
  15. Easy sailboat ownership

    Fascinating shit. Thanks for sharing, Rick.
