      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. Replacing a piece of toe rail

    I think H2O the builder of many custom race boats might know what he's talking about but just my opinion...
  2. what was it?

    I'll hazard a guess it's a Kelley 24..

  7. What size Tuff Luff for a J/33?

    If the crack is right at the feeder or right at the top of the hoist I'd try cutting that damaged area out.Have done it myself,worked fine.Just file the cut end..
  8. The bow up trim photograph looks like the bow is damaged to me hence the daylight or am I seeing something different from you guys...
  9. J33 Stories

    My wife and I sailed our new to us J33 quite a bit last year in light air and heavy air.We found it very easy to sail with just the two of us.It has a very solid feel to me versus our old Soverel 33 and much more comfortable. She loves it as do I.Only raced once but smoked the competition in light air.I agree about the feel of neutral helm.Controls pretty well laid out and the only thing tweeked looks to have been the mainsheet controls.
