      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.

    Boring Southern Lake
  1. Ripoff Alert! Vsport

    What happened? I have always great luck with this company.
  2. Trophy Vendors - Any Recommendations?

    I have had great results with regattaoutfitters.com.
  3. Foam deck

    Check out Seadek it has to be better than Raptor Deck . I have Raptor Deck on my boat now and it only lasted about 2 1/2 years even with a cockpit cover.
  4. J80 gennaker bowsprit

    There seems to be a lot of interest in J/80 replacement parts lately. Hopefully, someone else will step up after the demise of US Watercraft. Have you inquired at the European manufacturer yet?
  5. J/70 - resource for rigging and general setup?

    Thanks for the information. How much of the keel is in the water? Do you put bottom paint on the part in the water? Does any of the rudder stay in the water? Thanks for your help.
  6. J/70 - resource for rigging and general setup?

    Hey Peculiar, Where did you get that boat lift? Have been looking for something similar with no luck. Looks like you are even able to keep the rudder on the boat. Thanks!
  7. US Watercraft receivership ? (Alerion etc)

    Perhaps consider contacting J/Composites in Europe as they are the European Builder of the J/80. I was considering buying a J/80 but if I can't get parts for it maybe it wouldn't be a good idea. Please post if you are able to find parts somewhere.
  8. J70, cheating and pros

    It would make sense to measure all boats before they leave the factory. This would likely reinsure future buyers that they are buying a legal boat. As it is right now who knows?
  9. J70, cheating and pros

    Is this letter posted somewhere?
  10. J/70 - resource for rigging and general setup?

    I can't recommend Ed at Sail22.com highly enough. He has the answers to and stocks everything J/70 related. I promise you won't be disappointed. Good luck with the new boat!
  11. Boring, Slow, Hard

    I'll take "What is a Catalina 22?" for $200, Alex.
  12. J70 Bowsprit

    It is actually called a bowsprit bearing. I had to replace mine from the factory for $80 plus shipping.
  13. Smocks

    I have both the Musto MPX and LPX. I definitely prefer the LPX in the warmer months because I find the MPX to be too hot.
  14. Best boat for light air lake sailing

    Please consider a J 80 with a 155 genoa. I promise you this boat kills in light-air inland lakes.
