      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. So this is interesting; Dave's new boat is the first one I have ever commented on in these blogs (and I have lurked for some time) as it struck me in a very visceral way. I'm currently owned by a Tartan 37 like Dave. Did a certain aesthetic somehow come through?
  2. Hi Bob, Nice boat! I'm torn between which version I want to order. Let me think about it. As an aside, I grew up a couple of houses down from Dick Carter's office tower in Nahant (our house was over Saunder's Ledge on Spouting Horn Road). I remember my dad telling me that people designed sailboats there. He was an architect with an in home office so I it seemed reasonable to me that people did that sort of thing. Of course, I was more interested in sneaking onto the Carter property and jumping on their trampoline. So, there you go. Small world.
  3. Pedro, aja, I grew up in Nahant just three houses over from Dick's place (over Saunder's Ledge). I remember him as, "the guy who designed boats". I can't tell you how many times my friends and I got chased off the trampoline in his backyard in the middle of the night by him and his dog. Our local hang out was the library or the wharf depending on the weather -so we just may have crossed paths. Never did sail any of his boats, but he did buy our house when we moved out of town in '78.
