      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. F16 like foiler?

    I've never heard that before. The Taipan is a direct development of the Mosquito mould using what they knew from the A class.. But as per the original question, there's no kid friendly foiler! I would be surprised if you chose another boat after foiling an A.
  2. A Cat Worlds Sopot

    Thanks for the info gents, the Flyer is sold funnily enough. Drooling over A class's at McCrae cat champs will have to suffice for now!
  3. A Cat Worlds Sopot

    A couple of questions from a long time lurker sailing a shorter boat currently.. I'm going to enter the class after the Aus worlds (can't get leave for the worlds) Browsing some A's for sale I noticed the Paradox has a listing with foils for $8k platform only - am I to assume the platform is stiff & with new foils & rig it would be the best sub $20k option? Simons boat is listed at $29k any guesses on a chartered exploder will cost after the Aus worlds?
  4. A Cat Worlds Sopot

    Could Exploder make a quick enough F16 that it wins a world championship cat rig though? There's a challenge..
  5. F18 Worlds/ deck sweeper

    Worth noting Mischa used a boom with his set up just like his preference for the A class, so we can continue to debate that too . I'm curious what will turn up in Western Australia given the assumption of higher winds?
  6. Melbourne Big Boat Fleet

    Apologies Zeus, more a case of me being surprised by the 28 rather than declaring it a better boat. What are the prices being thrown around? Obviously a 2nd hand melges represents amazing value if the 11 concept can get numbers at other regattas.
  7. Melbourne Big Boat Fleet

    How many VX one's for the price of an MC31? I was genuinely shocked to see that many south of the border! Congrats to the Fareast 28 guys on their line and handicap results I heard whispers of a 60 ft one design fleet also?
  8. 65- by 32-foot catamaran 3200sqft of living space

    Is there no need for cabin windows because he'd rather not see the water rising over the decks?
  9. Vestas Sailrocket

    WOW! thinking about what you guys must be feeling after hopefully finding the "hole" is droolworthy. "lets just imagine every foil is ventilating" haha, good luck to you and your work is amazing
