      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. Older well known IOR Boats

    It'd be a bigger project but Tenacious is in a shed in the Netherlands looking for a restoration.

    Honestly it's doing pretty well for a boat built nearly 20 years ago as an 80 footer.

    KZ7 is in Germany, as part of the Robbe & Berking 12M fleet.
  14. Pogo Like Sailboats in North America

    Because they're very beamy boats with lots of wetted surface area that don't necessarily point well but go on a reach like shit off a shovel. This is great in Europe where random leg courses in more breeze are much more standard.. The focus on windward leeward racing in the US combined with the fact that most of the sailing centers here tend to have lighter breeze to overcome all that wetted surface area drag means that they aren't as popular as say a J120 for short handed racing.
  15. Turbo Etchells

    Maybe you're rounding up because the rudder wasn't designed for the loads imparted by the turbo Hackjob you did. Next thing you're going to tell us is that you heel a lot more going upwind with the big Genoa and the stock keel.
