      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. C&C 29-2?

  2. C&C 29-2?

    For sure this one is a PHRF-LE cheater boat...... HA HA
  3. C&C 29-2?

    The Mk1 versions had a tendency to be a bit rollie pollie sailing dead down with a tendency to broach.
  4. C&C 29-2?

    The Mk1 and 2 have been very popular on Lake Ontario for the last 30 years, with the biggest concentration of them in Rochester NY. They are not the fastest, or the most accommodating when compared to today's European floating condos, but they will do all that you ask and do it relatively well as a true racer/cruiser should. The Mk2 version is a little less "frightening" downwind in a blow, so if you are shorthanded, this is probably a plus. My experience sailing in a mixed fleet of both versions is that it is also slightly quicker upwind and better in a chop given its narrower beam and "finer" entry. As with any old cored boat, look out for the obvious.
  5. Thru-deck Fairleads

    They were not made by Klacko..... Have a "small project" machine shop mill you some from a solid piece rather than casting.
  6. What happened to the J/35? It also went for $500!
  7. Thru-deck Fairleads

    Those parts were custom made in a machine shop.
  8. X 24 class is a simplified J 24

    three man j boat with just a jib. Hmmm..... J/22
  9. A boat builder I am familiar with purchased most of the unused 4x8 sheets of foam core of varying thickness. Mixed in with all the unopened boxes was the foam core and fiberglass pre-cut kit for a C&C 30.
  10. Which Smock to buy

    I have Musto MPX. It cost a mint. Once you get past that, it's worth every penny IMHO. It breathes well, and stands up for rhe wear of the textured gel coat deck in my boat. I'm an active club/regional racer on the Great Lakes.
  11. quick!...Someone call the WHAAmbulance

    I'm with you on this one. FedEx has one fucking job to do and they are failing. Boat looks great would love some more photos.
  12. US Watercraft goes to Auction!

    That J/35 looks real familiar...... used to have a trailer for it if I recall correctly.
  13. US Watercraft goes to Auction!

    What's the story on the boats for sale? Particularly the J/35.
  14. Any info on this boat?

    Boat was on eBay a few years ago. It was down in Key West and being used as a charter or something like that. It was tired then, I'm sure it's worse now. I wonder what she originally was called? Seems a good candidate for a feature on RBS Sailing Blog.
  15. East Coast version of a Moore 24

    I have a J/27. If you find one that isn't water logged or completely rotted out down below, you will have yourself an excellent little boat that sails well in most conditions. It's not hard to get up to speed, easy to maintain and sails are "reasonable". They are fairly sturdy in terms of build and love big breeze. The deep, stern hung rudder will get you out of most operator induced driving errors and the boat really has no bad habits other than it's a little sticky in the real light stuff.
