      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.

    yes, we are making a quick disconnect pigtail to allow the compass to be lighted. (Not that I sail at night much anymore, but it never hurts to be able to when necessary.) You should see if you can find a set of contacts that can be mounted so that when you put the compass board in it's plugged in. Potentially it could be a cleaner finished product as well. Just out of curiousity, how well does the Francis Lee scull? I have not located the long 18 foot sculling oar yet.......I guess we could rig up a sculling oar lock on the stern roller. Have the yard make a carbon yuloh.She looks great Kim and Bob.Its been a pleasure to follow this project from the beginning.

    Yes, I have a bit of an attitude, but sometimes "experts" just piss me off. I wonder if they tolerate people who own multihulls. Oh come on Russ,Everyone a multihull isnt a real boat, Don Street said so;-)

    Great color choice for the hull. Materhorn white, yes?.
