      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.

    i gotta say i did like the look of the far east 28 transom!!
  2. what is it?

    how quick does it go?
  3. mystery main

    you don't even make it fun
  4. Sydney to Hobart 2016

    i think his talking about the new Maserati MOD 70
  5. Shaw 7 and similar Jib Sheeting

    the T750s would have about the same jib size with heavier boat, still ran 2;1 with a bigger person pulling on the tail, or 2 normal size people
  6. VOR 2017-18

    Cape Town to Auckland to Hong Kong to Sth America.....Auckland can't get two gigs unless you made it Cape Town to Australia to HK to Auckland to Sth America to avoid a freeze dried mutiny on the Sth America leg....that said a non stop HK to SA leg would sort the men out from the boys. How about Cape Town to HK to Auckland to SA. Go through the Malacca Straits again. Or throw a pit stop in the middle east in there somewhere. Nobody in their right mind would advocate going to auckland first and then back. One other thing is that it was 40 days when the VO70s did it but that was coming from Qingdao, which is way way north of HK. That's a lot of distance to cut out. just an idea, cape town, fremantle, HK, auckland
  7. So what news of Syd's new ride?

    most of them are bankrupt, dead, to old to still enjoy it and have retired
