      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.

    Have just removed the inner sleeve in my viper mast. With suggestion from Michael and a few added extra steps the sleeve came out. Unable to display picture, don't know how to reduce size of picture to display.

    Tim, I for one am very happy to have signed on with the i550class forum. If it wasn't for the forum a lot of my questions would not have been answered. It's no enjoyment having to read arguments on a forum, but get answers to a problem. so that one can continue building his i550. Hopefully, I will have my boat complete next year and get to race you and others, regardless if it is here(trying another club for help)or in the United States.

    looking to organize an i550 regatta in Toronto, Canada. Before approaching the race committee for assistance, how many i550 owners would be able to come. It would late summer in 2013, if this is not good 2014.
