      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.

  5. Barging question

    The "mark room" rule are the 18th. It is in section C of the rules and "Section C" rules do not apply at a starting mark... No room on the start line, pinend or comitee boat, cristal clear.
  6. Interesting boat in Mystic CT

    Nice girl, looks like an IOR class ... But very strange to have a boom and a mast in wood ? Looks like Garry Mull design too.

  8. Paul Whiting designs

    There's a Whiting Quarter Tonner in th UK called Captain Moonlight which is a bit like this so I wouldn't be surprised if Paul did design it. It would appear that he designed some relatively conventional looking boats as well as the whacky ones. Brilliant Designer sadly lost way to early in his life. Great to see Magic Bus is being restored. Any pics of this "Captain Morton" Peter ? Check this great site http://www.histoiredeshalfs.com/Quarter%20Tonner/Q%20Whitting.htm Ok but any shots of captain moonlight on this great site

    Nostalgia. There's a burgeoning IOR revivial across a few of the old level rating classes. Personally I'd love one cos they're so idionsynchratic. Ex-2269, Farr centreboarder has just been relaunched in Victoria AFAK and someone bought a Farr Centreboard one tonner that was rotting on a slip in QLD as an uncompleted project and has shiupped it to dubai for a major makeover. A few nice Quarter and Half tonners of this era lying dormant in Sydney I know. 2269 was originally a centre-boarder and was later fitted with a fixed keel, She then became Nightmoves until washed ashore at Mornington a few years agoand declared a CTL by the insurer. I heard her current owner snapped her up from the Insurers and has done a nice looking conversion on her. She is now known as 2Farr and I saw her in G-town on Friday and snapped these for this thread. Ironically she is now the same colour as originally was another Farr Half Tonner that used to race in Melbourne around the same time , Bob Fell's Vitamin C.

    Also sitting at Royal Brighton is the old Kaufman 1 tonner The Sting. Haven't seen her out of her berth for many years now. Scott Kaufman designed some pretty boats, I think Sting is a sister to America Jane 111 100_2982.JPG She looks very like AJ
