      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 Leg 6 Hong Kong to Auckland

    Bit dull to go stealth mode when everyone can still see you. And also to come out of it with a massive loss by parking behind an island like everyone said would happen.
  2. Sydney To Hobart 2018

    Which one? The Pooch or the Prince?
  3. Team NYYC

    Oh good, you heard it here first! NYYC to come second in the 36th America's Cup!!!
  4. save a legend....Really

    I'll put a plus one on that. What do you have to say about Ocean Planet, Dawg, aka. Dave Trude?
  5. Sydney To Hobart 2018

    Cookson 50 with the keel pin axis mod that Privateer has along with a longer keel and lighter bulb to keep RM the same but be able to go downwind with the increasingly light 52s. And a set of extremely high line speed carbon hydraulic winches with remote controls.

    Easier to narrow down the boats that finished than the boats that didn’t.
  7. Carrabean 600

    Faster boat or slower boat?
  8. I believe the lock trip lines are internal, and certainly wouldn't run in front of the spreaders. Too narrow for a hoisting pennant.

    And, bonus, when you leave the boat in the evening you can pick up some crack rocks and hookers on your way off City Island.
  10. PV Race

    Look at what STC does with the Pineapple Cup. One end of the line is a Govt. Marker, and the other is a powerboat that motors out whenever there's one/multiple finishers and ties up to a hippity hop on an anchor that they've dropped at the other end of the line. Only needs to be one person in a Mako to record a time. Agreed that seconds matter offshore and this sounds like a shitty way to record finishes on a very major distance race.
  11. Old Cup Posters and Artwork

    Seems fitting that you'd find Liberty in a junk shop.

    Stop listening to all this nonsense, and put your boat at Pilot's Point in Westbrook, CT. They get a great seabreeze out there in the summer, you're close to great cruising grounds, and its about as pleasant as yards get with good service on hand and an easy motor out into the sound. It's also very well protected. Anywhere west of Stamford and your "cruising sights" will be comprised of City Island Whitefish, the Hart Island Crematorium, and Fentanyl Needles.
  13. What is it?

    Unfathomably ugly. What do I win?
  14. Copy. I knew of iPunkt, didn't realize that Bouwe and Capey were onboard. They're good guys, but it's silly to do something prohibited on a boat that's under constant media coverage, so my gut says that they didn't recognize it was a rule or someone on the crew suggested it and they tried it or some combination of the two. Bad juju though.
