      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.

    sailing, building small boats...
  1. Jeebus! I thought folks were calming down and just going to wait for the boat to be finished and see how things are then.... Can't believe I need to say this: Hobs, what are you cooking tonight?
  2. Redheads?, Hobs, perhaps I was being a bit insensitive to your situation. Let's skip the sourdough starter lessons for now. You need more basic help. Study this. Seriously-- it starts slow but it does get to redheads so please pay attention.
  3. Hobs, I can talk you down off that ledge. You make the fish and chips....
  4. Go stand in the corner Rasp. The one where Hobot is standing. Seriously, would you guys pay attention? Thread drift isn't for amateurs...
  5. Dammit Hobot! What is it with this talk of fish batters? When last we left off, were talking about sourdough starter(s). I finally got ours figured out (zoom for a close look). Will post photos of tonight's loaf after baking it in the morning. Next time I fly out to Seattle, I can bring you some starter. THEN you can thread drift on over to fish batter....
  6. Woo-hoo! (yes, take that camera…. please….)
  7. Lost mine a week ago today. 86. Due to complications from Alzheimer's.
  8. Teaching my 6 year-old nephew (visiting from France) to sail. Reaching in the mighty Auray Punt. He's helming, I'm mainsheet trimmer.
  9. Hey! Show a little respect. You're talking about "Miss Cindy" there.... Read up: http://turtleislands.net/tmc/
  10. Here's my candidate: Half Portuguese Water Dog, half standard Poodle. Seriola: We are in Italy now (Genova at the moment) and every Italian that sees Scout says two things: "Che Bella!" and "Lagotto?" I
  11. Kim, Which sourdough starter are you going to use on this boat?
  12. It was 80 degrees here today. Sourdough starter crossed my mind. Soup did not.
  13. Let's get this thread back on track. Please. Hobot, how'd the sourdough starter turn out?
  14. What kind of anchor will work best with the sliding doors vs the hockey doors?
