      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. 2016 Vic-Maui race

    I am surprised at the lack of chatter for this race. If all goes well Jayro will shatter this record by almost 24 hours. By this time tomorrow she could be sitting in Maui. Fingers crossed that there will be no issues......
  2. 2016 Vic-Maui race

    So the tracker shows Mountain, stopped dead in the water. Looks like lots of breeze around them though, anyone?
  3. steveston marine counter prick

    I really wish I could chime in on this thread. The whole marine retail industry in BC is crazy. I could go on for hours. You all would be SHOCKED to hear whats going on.. ARRRGGGG
  4. Southern Straits 16'

    Yup I was there
  5. Southern Straits 16'

    I ve missed the past 3 years, thanks to someone trying to kill me with her SUV. I hate watching from the dock.....Maybe next year. Have fun everyone
  6. Unconfirmed reports say that due to the close proximity to the sea lions. The engine was (By Law) turned off. No power to maneuver, around the swells & waves is certain disaster
  7. Falcon, Tripp/Goetz 50 on Craigslist

    You may be thinking of the Falcon Maxi Yacht...Nope the nose is still missing. Boat is still on the hard in the Cayman's from Hurricane damage...as far as I know.
  8. Some of my old sailing photos 2

    If you happen to find run across that ad, please scan and post? I raced with Tomahawk back then, would love a copy. The add...or should I say poster is very large. My brother still has it mounted in his office. The shot is spectacular. I have some great connections @ Forespar...still trying to get a copy. I'll keep you posted

    I was hoping "Wisp" would show up on this thread. Wisp was built in Sidney B.C. by Bent Jespersen Boat Builders in 1981 (I think). I started to sail with the Wilson family when they owned a Viking 33 called "Menehune". I was fortunate to sail on Wisp a few times. However my brother sailed on her from the start. Vic- Maui, Clipper Cup, Mexorc, BBS, SORC...& many more regatta's. He has hundreds of pictures documenting the campain. She was also featured in a Forespar add. Sailing down wind between Tomahawk & I think Container, I think it was during SORC. Recently I was honored to play a small part in her refit. She was purchased by the late Don Wilson's son. We redid all the deck gear with new Harken equipment, new keel & new carbon rig. I'll call my Bro, get him to send me some pictures. There are some awesome shot's. Hope to post them soon.......
  10. J/111 Goes Sailing...

    So I hear that the new 111 is on the hard in Halifax with severe keel issues.....Anyone? Confirm or Deny.....I heard a rumor.....not starting one.
  11. J/111 Goes Sailing...

    Any boat will get to speed on a reach in breeze.....It's a fuck'n POS J boat. Dr. Phil said it best..."you can put wings on a pig.....but it won't make it a chicken"..................................Think about it

    ..........Y'all know me. Know how I earn a livin'. I'll catch this bird for you, but it ain't gonna be easy. Bad fish. Not like going down the pond chasin' bluegills and tommycods. This D.O.G., swallow you whole. Little shakin', little tenderizin', an' down you go. And we gotta do it quick, that'll bring back your tourists, put all your businesses on a payin' basis. But it's not gonna be pleasant. I value my neck a lot more than three thousand bucks, chief. I'll find him for three, but I'll catch him, and kill him, for ten. But you've gotta make up your minds. If you want to stay alive, then ante up. If you want to play it cheap, be on welfare the whole winter. I don't want no volunteers, I don't want no mates, there's just too many captains on this island. Ten thousand dollars for me by myself. For that you get the port hull, the starboard hull, the whole damn thing.

    Holy Shit....What a shock. But I always remember what my "Ol' Grand Dad" used to say. Your Not Looking At The Mantle piece When Your Poke'n The Fire". God I miss Him.......
