      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.

And Bigrpowr you forgot the other welcome"FUCK OFF NEWB" followed by the tits comment, that's how it was when I came here. anyway back to watching the paint dry, i mean watching a famous record breaking tri ,slowly deteriorate until it sinks. Sad

  3. 8mt Grainger Racing Trimaran For Sale

    On your doorstep Chidz, get the moths out of your wallet!
  4. Might blow the $10k limit though. The alternative is a Tramp trimaran, (Pyramid Eagle in the USA) or Ostac tramp, a lot closer to his budget too, the absolute perfect family daysailer, floats in 8 inches of water too.

  8. Heaven Can Wait charity race 2018

    Well done Evil and Chidz and Madhatter too, Looked good from where I was, i was heading south at Wangi point as you were heading for Belmont, smoking along on one hull, looked quicker than 19kts to me. A bloody top day, but that light stuff at the start put us way back ,that and the dickhead in a40ft leadbelly running along the line on port as the whole fleet tried to start on starboard,i left him my traditional starboard float bow signature on him as I tried to go down to minimize the impact,about 10 boats downwind all got tangled as the bare away cascaded, lucky we were not going fast. A 720 degree penalty doesn't seem enough sometimes! .
  9. Caribbean 600

    Care to re evaluate your choices?...............Now!
  10. Sail Port Stephens

    Chidz was looking at it last year but I don't think he entered in the end.if I dig around I might still have the number of a local corsair sprint bloke, hes probably got a finger on the pulse, i'll see if I can find it.
  11. Australian Yachting Championship 2018

    I'm not a supporter of the event, but lets be truthfull , there were 16 multihulls at the event, 5 in Div 1, 11 in Div 2. I just saw the results. https://syc.com.au/raceresults/2018/ayc/multi/series.htm

  13. Ditching Your Rig At Sea (from PD)

    why not retrieve it? plenty of rope and winches there.
  14. Small tri beams

    What about an internal sleeve at the loaded point?, to spread the load along the beam outboard of the socket, what do the engineers here have to say on this,? just my laymans, "seat of the pants" thought.
