      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. Ian Farrier

    My condolences to the Family and Friends of the Great Ian Farrier. He was one of the most patient, kind and brilliant people in the industry. I hope his new F22 can still make it to the USA in great numbers. If so, it will be a fitting tribute to a great man!
  2. used 4 seat convertibles under 8k?

    Saab 93 aero.
  3. My newest project

    As with most Perry boats, I have a hard time with the house. Looks too big and slopes down too much. The hull looks sweet.
  4. Live Racing Thread

    Anyone have another link for watching today's races? The above links aren't working for me. TIA

    Interesting concept. Where is the Antrim?
  6. mondo bondage

    Cool project. Will follow.
  7. C&C Custom 43

    Wow! Congrats. That is one awesome sailboat. If the balsa is ok you just stole it. Pile on your friends and family and have great time. What do you have for sails?
  8. Did somebody say Waarschip 1010?...

    Mowgli- Thanks for adding this cool 1010 to the mix. I love the self tacking jib and square top main. How does he manage the square top in relation to backstays? I would think that jibing in heavy airs would be a little tricky?
  9. Did somebody say Waarschip 1010?...

    It looks like they did some cool mods on that boat. Super TALL stick. Masthead kite. Must have been a rocket downwind.
  10. Girl with patreon account goes sailing in hot place

  12. pics : StFYC One-Design, Sat March 4th

    Nice, tight OD racing in perfect conditions. There is still a God.
  13. Did somebody say Waarschip 1010?...

    Ive raced with 6 and its fine. you only need 3 in the cockpit and the rest have to find another way across when tacking. last rating was a 105 PHRF
  14. Small Offshore Boats Recommendations?

    Check out the Waarschipp 1010 thread in Cruising Anarchy. A lot of bang for the buck.
  15. Fun Daysailing - Nacra 5.7 vs. 5.8 vs. Hobie Getaway

    God does that look like a weapon! I love the vertical trailer also. Wrong coast for me, otherwise I'd be all over that.
