      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.

    Anything sailing.
  1. Better "hook on" and grab your pal Richard Simmons..get outta dodge before Harvey gets ya....I'll be out dukin sails on my Laser..another great "unsung" Canadian invention. FU
  2. Anybody know about these gems? C&C designed but CS built back in the 60's. Sometimes they are confused with the Catalina Capri by nomenclature ....! http://sailboatdata.com/viewrecord.asp?class_id=5771 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Caprice_15 Wonder how they sail compared to an Albacore? Cheers Bob
  3. Has anybody adapted a Lateen sail to a Walker Bay? Like the rig from a Sunfish? Also wondering if any Newsgroups exist for the WB. I can't seem to find any. Cheers Bob
  4. "Any of you guys from BC remember Relic from the show 'The Beachcombers'? He kinda took pride in his ability to run over things in his 'tinner'. From BC???? Holy Shite Man ...Relic was "large" right across the Great White North!!!
  5. Try using a Jimmy Hat BeerPal....can you say penicilin? My goodness!
  6. 2 Blade Gori 1" LH 12 x 9 Blades loose fit. Almost looks like PO carved out relief space. Gears look OK Not sure if metal eaten away by galvanic corrosion. Will this prop vibrate like a jackhammer? Can Nibril be welded back up and milled? Thanks
  7. You don't have to be "hooked up" and domesticated, to be normal. name that boat........MGTOW
  8. Gumby is correct (mostly) USA is a tad a different. The Americans do not have a mandatory ROC-M (Restricted Operators Certificate-Maritime) type of operators certificate requirement (in most situations). Canada does in all circumstances i.e. you need to pass an operators course. Canuck Coasties don't want Channel 16 stepped on with 25 Watts continuously ! It's the "station Licence" that is is similar. Station means the "equipment". If either countrymen is venturing into another countries waters, a "Station" Licence (or you could call it a Ships Licence) is required. Its an annual fee of $36.00 in Canada. Cheers If it is the American sailor venturing into foreign waters, I believe he /she will need an Operators certificate along with the FCC Staion Licence.
