      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. Australian Yachting Championship 2018

    I think RPAYC tried doing something like that with the Pittwater to Coffs race about 5 or so years back.

    The top rails on the 2 fwd sections are rollers, they make it easier to get the kites over and down the hatch when doing string drops.

  4. Get bent, let's get rid of the jackstays !

    I've seen guys cooked by HV lines, if they leave him their long enough 1 short sharp smack with a broomstick and he'll come down as an ash cloud. High enough voltage he'll be vaporized.

    Do you know the fire hazard those clothes pose? He does it naked.

  7. Pittwater to Coffs

    The 3 pre-race radio checks, 2 satphone checks, and a phone call on Boxing Day to ask if our life rafts were properly secured, and if our engine mounts were of sturdy construction was a bit much though.
  8. Which Electronics package??

    The new Garmin EchoMap Plus series claims to have sail functions (start/laylines etc) haven't had enough time to play with one to find them though, alternate to that the Garmin 52XS series are very nice looking units and I would assume would have the same features as the EchoMap series. Beyond that once Raymarine introduce the sailing functions into the Lighthouse 3 software for the Axiom they're an excellent unit.

    I take it from this image that you're some kind of inventor of children's toys? This one looks pretty neat and I would be interested in buying one for my nephew for Christmas, can you please tell me which retailers in Australia stock your toys?
