      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. Bermuda 1-2 2017

    When it warms up! - T
  2. Bermuda 1-2 2017

    Toothface 2 is finally signed up! Couldn't be more excited for this years race! Anyone out there sitting on the fence for 2017?? Please pm me so I can twist your arm!
  3. Bermuda 1-2 2017

    Don't worry. I will wait for you. Not. It's going to take a lot of lobster pots for you to get out of buying me a nice dinner in Bermuda!
  4. Bermuda 1-2 2017

    I'm more concerned with the offshore lobster pots! 😊
  5. Turn key shorthanders on East Coast?

    Talon...pm me. I have a Quest 30 and I'm quite involved with the Bermuda 1-2. Would love to chat. Cheers, Tristan
  6. What about free standing rigs?

    We had to do that with our Freedom 39. Cat ketches definitely don't like pinching. Yves, have you designed any expedition yachts with freestanding rig? Same with our Freedom 40. In flat water we tacked through 90 degrees, in chop it was more like 100. but on any angle where the sails were efficient, it was f-a-s-t. I think a small jib like the one added to Frog Kiss would have helped, but also added complexity that we really weren't interested in. At the risk of raising Bob's ire, have you looked at the 'expeditions' that sponberg has drawn? So I got a little bored at work this afternoon and decided to search a few topics of interest, one being "Frog Kiss"...my parents previous and beloved Cat Ketch Freedom 44. Funny to read a little bit about ones boat. I have a Quest 30 now "Samba"....and I'm a newbie so feel free to tell me to f off or whatever...but a great boat and great rig! Ryley, do you own the 40 in Charlestown? I'm in the northend. - Tristan Did you buy her from Phil? Fantastic boat. Congrats! Thank you, I felt pretty lucky to end up with this particular Quest. There was one owner between Phil and I....but yes, it is Phil's old boat. Maybe a Quest with a free standing rig someday.........hmmmmm
  7. What about free standing rigs?

    Samba, It's been some years but I enjoyed the opportunity to talk to your Dad about his mods to Frog Kiss and talked to your uncle about another project. You've got good genetics for sailing. Have fun with that Quest. They look like a sweet boat but I've never had the chance to check one out. Thank you, she's been an awesome boat for me so far. If you're ever in Newport look me up and we can go for a sail. I miss Frog Kiss though! She was a special boat.
