      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.

    I think Bobs short businesslike haircut just makes those shoes look a lot like slippers. It's like sheer, it's a bit deceptive on camera. Great looking Kim. The amount of work and attention to detail amazes me every time I see it. Now can I have Bob back for a few days? :-)

    Those are amazing and well worth a modest diet KIm
  3. Perry Sliver Class Day Sailor

    You sort of resemble Union General Buell, one of the most incompetent generals of the war but a really nice guy.

    hey, that looks just like Kim's boat! First off credit where credit due: that rendering you posted was done by Sons. Second see original hand drawing below: (Bob worked quite hard getting to the final product. He tried out various renditions of the concept until we got to the one we both liked, but that would take too much time in the movie so we will shorten the process when it hits film.)

    +1 wow, +10 cool
  6. Perry Sliver Class Day Sailor

    Wow Kim, those shots and the care with which the guys are doing the work are amazing. They are very tiday workers ... almost too neat ....

    No Kim, your thread has an actual BOAT being built .. mine is design stuff and renderings. You'll be off sailing by the time we have anythinmg close to what you're offering up here !! Check out this one too: http://forums.sailin...howtopic=133360 ND's thread is just about to take off and rival mine......

    That's what they say about RENAMING, before the proper ceremony. Also keep the name off the boat, and all of that. But I've never heard of not 'naming' her or stating the name. If so, I guess you're all set and I'm in big trouble .... Isn't it bad luck to announce the name before launching??
  9. Perry Sliver Class Day Sailor

    That is too cool for words. We should get Randy some better music to mix with the Vid, something more fitting the boat. I will email you some thoughts Kim.
  10. Perry Sliver Class Day Sailor

    Great shots, kim. You must be proud and excited. Bob, you look at home nestled up there for a nap.

    A friend of my father's had a split rig semi-custom boat where the mizzen was not in line with the mainmast. Said she sailed just fine (I was too younf to remember how she sailed), but the offset was noticeable. Even if it did sail with the mizzen off to one side (I guess you compensate), it would drive me bonkers just having to look at it every day. Come to think of it, I think the mizzen mast was behind the cockpit so they never saw it. Still, it suggests shoddy craftsmanship at best.

    Those shots are just amazing. she looks proud..
  14. What about free standing rigs?

    Yeah that's the big unfortunate given.
  15. What about free standing rigs?

    So far for pure cruising the unstayed rig seems to have two minuses : higher cost and an all or non repair problem if the rig fails offshore/far away. All other comments seem to be pluses?
