      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.

  6. 2018 American Yacht Club Spring Series

    Yeah, just like local town kids sports, where they don't keep score. So when these kids get to high school where they do keep score the kids get depressed and turn to drugs when their teams suck. How about not charging for a mooring to keep the boat at host club's regatta. Between the 4 weekends of spring and fall, with entry fee and mooring fees for the 2 events, food and drinks on the boat, you are looking at $1000. That doesn't include a round of drinks each day at the club after racing and a dinner each weekend. The average PHRF boat does not see the fun it it all and more. Plus Bill is right, to many conflicting, overlapping events

    You probably weren't paying attention to that part of the meeting or perhaps you exited early
  17. YRALIS PHRF minutes

    I noticed today in the NOR's for AYC spring series, that they have elected to form their Technical Committee, with Mark Ploch as chairman. I wonder if they realize, that their Tech Comm can be overruled by YRA's Tech Comm. So if your discrepancy is with an AYC boat or Doyle Sails customer and it gets swept under the rug, you can take it to the YRA Tech Comm for review. Why would they bother doing that? Do they realize that if either party is dissatisfied with the local club’s decision they have the option of escalating the matter to the YRA Technical committee? According to the presentation at the YRA meeting, if the YRA technical committee comes to a different decision, they would require the local club to rescore the race. If the club refuses, the race would no longer be a YRA trophy qualifier. I would think it would be easier all around, and less corrupt, to just use the YRA Technical committee.

    It could have been solvent trap. It is not like Balto, you have to spray 1 coat walk away for 3-4 hours before second coat. Total waste of time, and I don't think it's as good as Balto My J29 has been dry sailed for the last 12 years with Balto, the bottom has not been sprayed in 13+ years, all I do is a spay touch up, burnish and done
  22. YRALIS PHRF minutes

    I've sharpened up my guillotine. The cement boots have been polished. Roller furler credits on boats that are designed that way, NOW That's Ridiculous!
