      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.

    It's worth shipping pat Goodrow down from Marblehead. He is fantastic. Hightechmarinesurveys.com
  2. The Jobson Retort

    Sailing down that run the gains were on fort Adams shore. We draw 10 feet and sailed through a couple of 12 foot spots to stay out of the tide and maneuver around the fleet. The reason they tried to stay inside as long as possible was so they could realize the same gains we made in front of them. If Courageous jibed out instead of pushing inside extreme they would have been shot out of the pack and lost a lot of boats
  3. titanium fasteners resolve most of this

  5. 8mm too smal for J/35 genoa halyards?

    We run 8mm sk 90 or 99 as spare jib halyard on a club swan 42 with no issue. But you need to leave it on the winch. Should be doing that regardless of diameter

    I get all my rigging from them. Great service very nice gear. Thoughtful craftsmanship.
  8. J/30 Modify for PHRF racing?

    yes but from a loading standpoint short of an upwind code zero, the sheave sees the same load as the asail would be: and with the 3' penalty pole so wider than standard pole length luff angle
  9. J/30 Modify for PHRF racing?

    Add a cathedral to the rig. J22 spreaders will work. Did it to put masthead mumm 30'spinnaker von my Pearson flyer. Exact same rig as a j30 and rig layout / spreader envelope is essential the same. Worked very well mast was super stable. Also easy to add the sheave into the existing cranes front side

  13. Hey Skip, your name was given me on a thread about Flyers on SA. I have a new-to-me 1983 Flyer. I just bought all new North 3DL sails, new Asym, new Spin, new everything. I am trying to figure the boat out. Anything you could tell me about tuning, crew organization and placement, and how to win with the boat I would appreciate. I plan to sail coastal ocean races in San Diego.
