      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. mid-size performance cat that sleeps 1-2 & trailerable

    I'll bite and chime in on the G32 ... I'm owner of hull #8 (Guerdon's old boat). Magical, brilliant, freaky, and a ton of fun. Capsizing is no fun but self-righting works well and takes most of the drama out of it. She can be endlessly tweaked but generally sailed really easily with minimal loads. Easy to launch, recover, single-hand, sail with kids, and is good for a lot of long stares on the water (or the road from California to Michigan!)
  2. Reynolds 33 18' Stretch - tuning guides?

    There's an R33 from Michigan that races Chicago-Mac most years ... named double time. http://competitor.cycracetomackinac.com/boatdetail.cfm?ID=1221 Don't have any contact info but Ron White might - there was a bit of work to get the boat 'legal' to meet Mac requirements iirc.

    Tripp/Queens question: A few years ago when Tripp left from South Haven they offered free docking/slip from Saturday/Sunday thru Wednesday for boats doing the Tripp. Any info if they are offering this again, and who to contact? Que Loco!! coming down but trying to plan delivery, etc. Thanks

    At this point Que Loco!! is planning on delivering to South Haven unless there are better options ... but because its still Area 4 that's likely what we'll do.

    Is BT back in the game after his injury? I heard he was pretty busted up ... See Fetzer's post above ... bionic leg and all!

    Que Loco!! will be there also. Looks like a sled ride down for the feeder. Maybe the Peerless will hit 20 kts again, eh?!?
