      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. Show your boat sailing thread

    I had a Victory 21 for a few years in the early 70's. It was my first introduction to racing. Cruised some too.
  2. Two sailors and dogs rescued after 5 months

    I missed all the comments under the shark picture. WOW! That got into a pretty spirited discussion. She sure changes and tries to backtrack on her previous quotes.
  3. Port Townsend Dash

    I used to be on the "A" Team, but now am probably a solid C+ or B-.
  4. Two sailors and dogs rescued after 5 months

    According to her video she says the spreader repair used "48ft of amsteel".
  5. Two sailors and dogs rescued after 5 months

    That whole discussion on FB is pretty bizarre. I like how the Asian community is up in arms about her comments about the fishermen who were trying to help her.
  6. Sailing around the world in a San Juan 24

    Looks like Rimas has left the dock and has moved to the cheap seats. Looks shaky if the wind blows him toward the shore. Sails still uncovered and jib still halfway up the headstay.
  7. Two sailors and dogs rescued after 5 months

    I zoomed up the picture and does appear to be Appel climbing the mast. And I did say climbing because it appears to be steps on that mast!
  8. Heard from a couple scources who talked to the owner, that it was New Haven and that it is back at Brownsville Marina.
  9. I went by the Bremerton Marina today and did not see New Haven. BUT, it could have moved for repairs if that is the boat. So I know nothing right now.
  10. Ussually when it is in the Westsound it is moored at Brownsville. But I suppose it is possible.
  11. Yep, this is the town I live in! I would like to find out which boat he tried to steal. I don't recognize the description.
  12. My newest project

    Great pictures and report. Last time I was on this boat It was still being assembled. Now its nice to see sailing. Looks really good! And fast too!
  13. My newest project

    I would sure like to be there, but I have an important meeting tomorrow at 0900. Have fun. Looking forward to seeing the pictures.
  14. The Four Carbon Cutters project

    I would sure like to be there tomorrow, but I have a Care Conference for my dad. Have fun! Looking forward to seeing pictures.
  15. Perry Design Rendezvous 2017

    I wished I could have gone to the Rendezvous. I got a call Friday night at midnight from the rehab facility that they were sending my father to the ER. By the time they checked him out and sent him back, I got home at 0600. I did not feel like going anywhere Saturday. Then on Sunday 15 minutes before I was ready to leave for SW Washington to camp out for heading into Oregon for the eclipse, another call from rehab that they were sending him to the ER again. This time he was admitted, treated and back in rehab tonight. I am tired and hangry!
