      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. The Refit - Andrews 43

    My dads custom Maxi MORC had the same setup. The Mumm 36 did as well along with a few other custom race boats I have sailed on.
  2. This plus a thousand. I hate this bastard and his shitty family!
  3. Jones wins.... what now?:

    Oh my god, you are a FUCKING IDIOT.
  4. 8 Bells - Chris Wentz

    That's terrible news. A genuine, good guy.
  5. 1994 when they did it in MORC Maxi 30's.
  6. Dotard Goes Off on the British Prime Minister

    The best thing the Brits can do is tell this piece of shit to go get fucked. Its bad enough how he's lowered US politics to a subterranean level, he doesn't need to be interfering elsewhere.
  7. Ridiculously Overpriced Boats

    Can I assume we are speaking of David Probale or whatever his handle was?
  8. C&C 29-2?

    Sorry Bill, a poor attempt at humor.
  9. C&C 29-2?

  10. C&C 29-2?

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

    The Mk1 versions had a tendency to be a bit rollie pollie sailing dead down with a tendency to broach.
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. What happened to the J/35? It also went for $500!
  15. Thru-deck Fairleads

    Those parts were custom made in a machine shop.
