      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. +1 on the hatch boards. Keep in mind that the Holder 20 isn't really self righting once the masthead hits the water. I broached a Holder once surfing a big wave into Oceanside Harbor. The masthead hit the water and stayed there for quite a while until I climbed over the side and onto the keel. I got very lucky that the boat didn't turtle. On its side the companionway was just barely clear of the water, and if the boat had turtled without the boards in I would have been toast. Overall, the holder is quite a fun little boat, especially downwind in a blow. It will get on a plane and live at 12-14kts quite easily. Quite a lot of bang for the buck IMHO. Just sail with the hatch boards in whenever there is a risk of things going sideways and tell the crew to take a swim if the masthead hits the water (there is a vid on youtube somewhere showing a H-20 turtling because the crew keeps holding on). Regarding the backstay flicker, a J-70 flicker would work fine for a main with a bigger roach, but moving to a square top would require changing the shroud positions and ditching the backstay. A big asymmetrical would be an awesome addition.
  2. This J/22 looks to be in good shape. $500, you dig it out... http://sandiego.craigslist.org/csd/boa/5790604171.html
  3. Looks like they got the first production boat done. It looks fairly stable given the light air. Video here: http://www.sailingscuttlebutt.com/2016/06/18/video-testing-waszp/ [media][/media]
  4. Campbell's sloop is a good one, with a tender naturally named Campbell's Condensed Sloop.
  5. Is this still available?
