      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. VOR '17-'18 - THE GAME

    Wondered what happened Wet Hog! You were right behind me and then you were gone
  2. Cruising a two tonner

    Sure looks like it, boat had one. IIRC boat had a carbon sink as well.......and was built by Kilian Bush in Cowes, spent a week long boarding the bottom at Hamble Yacht Servies......
  3. VOR '17-'18 - THE GAME

    Maybe he was in stealth mode? Just wondering if that could explain it
  4. Old Whitbread/Volvo Ocean Race yachts

    Memory still works............http://www.sail-world.com/USA/Volvo-Ocean-Legends-Race-–-Tokio-back-for-unfinished-business/157735?source=google
  5. Old Whitbread/Volvo Ocean Race yachts

    I thought the Swarbrick boat is the one they are sailing in the Legends Regatta
  6. VOR '17-'18 - THE GAME

    Brief moment of glory ...........logged on about an hour in.....in 7th place for while
  7. VOR '17-'18 - THE GAME

    So the count down on auto sail cards start immediately............even if the race hasn't started yet....
  8. Work in Yacht Design Offices

    Carcrash.......there are actually very few NA schools in the USA.....Michigan, New Orleans, Webb and the service academies.....Webb often graduates less than 30 a year......the UK (population 1/5 of the US) has 6 universites offering NA. Many NAs are immigrants.....especially working for organization like ABS. Bob.....in 2014 I hired a new Michigan grad (mid class gpa) ......$65k a year.....competition for grads is tough......lot of people left the industry in 2008-2012...........and I agree on the Westlawn v Southampton comments ........my rule of thumb was Westlawn was OK as long as they had an engineering degree as well
  9. VOR '17-'18 - THE GAME

    Managed to hit the bricks at Gibraltar (same as last race!) and hate the cards
  10. Blue water performance cruiser - do they exist?

    Amazing boat but not a cruiser...........many miles on her back in the day
  11. VOR '17-'18 - THE GAME

    Well done YM. About 3,000 without using zezo and missing a few tacks.........figuring out the cards and credits slowly anyone know how to pull Lat/long out of the app rather than using a desktop?
  12. VOR '17-'18 - THE GAME

    I'm in, need to take a look at the interface like YM said..... looking forward to it
  13. Magregor 26's big brother at 17KTs

    Pedrick and the yard and others did the engineering, owners son is an architect who also did the superstructure and interior on the original Mitseaah (S&S/ Derecktor 114' MY) owner owns (or at least used to own) the Getty Oil gas stations on the east coast
  14. Two bottle boat

    Dating myself here Dylan......but must have been 35 years ago and 99.9% certain it was a converted mirror. Had a long chat with the designer.....whose name I cannot find.....he was still testing the principle out
  15. Two bottle boat

    Pretty sure the guy who designed the swing rig is based up that way (remember seeing a Mirror maybe 35 years ago rigged that way) can't remember the name but may be involved? cool idea
