      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 that flys
  1. Affordable racing tris vs. cats (<35ft)

    Jesus, nobody has any balls anymore, take a risk, NZ dollars! I would go $15k if i could figure out how to bid!
  2. Cat2Fold is for sale!!!

    Isn't there a video of her folding?
  3. Suggestions? Sell carbon mast, sails, boom, etc

    The mast would work well on Soma, i sanded the entire mast inch by inch, added new shrouds, three halyards and diamond wires, there is less than three weeks on the new parts. If i kept it i would replace the spreader tangs, they are ss and riveted. My new Marstrom has the same fittings with rivets, i don't understand this and i found no movement but she is older. I have a mast trailer in Rockport and heading to Charleston soon. Stephen
  4. what is it?

    KISS, One smart, simple, lucky sailor.
  5. Affordable racing tris vs. cats (<35ft)

    In storage
  6. Affordable racing tris vs. cats (<35ft)

    Just north of Vancouver, it strained me to share this info, but i own way too many boats. I will pass on contact info only to a serious buyer, and the price was what she was offered to me for (which i would share, just to get her sailing).
  7. Affordable racing tris vs. cats (<35ft)

    Its a Newick, screw the watermaker, electric and plumbing, she is a real sailboat. Best buy in the US is the Newick in the pnw, $20k. I will buy half if you do!
  8. Affordable racing tris vs. cats (<35ft)

    I have offered the Antrim for $1 in sa classifieds in the right non equity partnership, i am getting old, have too many boats and it is too much work.
  9. Affordable racing tris vs. cats (<35ft)

    Yes, sorry. I would love to sail against her and she will be the boat to beat in the r2ak. I am looking for crew on one of my boats, but it is a lot of work and the grandchild arrives in June.. nothing trumps a new baby!
  10. Affordable racing tris vs. cats (<35ft)

    Every boat has advantages in different wind speeds and i would love to hear about your experience with Mama tried but when i raced against her with Nice Pair she was faster than me but not by much. I am sure to get the most out of a r33 you have to fly a hull, so a certain skill level is mandatory. What is mamas rating?
  11. Affordable racing tris vs. cats (<35ft)

    Not in the US, , Mama tried was around $80k and she is outrageous, but a r33 will wax her. I would rather own her than the r33 but not at twice the price. I would love to see more pictures of your boat and see a price, Dragonfly just came to Canada and she looks like a hoot, we will see her in the r2ak 2019

    Luck is very important in the r2ak, and yes, Mad dog was not only a incredible boat/ team, but luck was on their side, after the race they broke their mast in San Francisco. The skill level in the r2ak is off the charts, which makes it an incredible race, but it is biased to the fastest boats. Mad dog was -100 or so, but Nice Pair still owns the record to Victoria, yes, some luck was involved. M32s are not only wicked expensive to buy, they are wicked expensive to fix. There are no beds and are only 40 seconds a mile faster, alot for a day sailor, but when it is time to sleep, not so much. $200k /$40k used. As far as trimaran being safer, yes the extra ama works like a governer, but a phrf of 15 or even 0 is a long way from -65. Bring the skill level to the table and a r33 can allow you to play with the big boys at a fraction of the cost. The Antrim 40 trimaran has a phrf of -65 but it cost $600k to build. Want to have fun and call it safe? The F27 in Susanville looks brand new and under $40k, (not my boat). It is hard to see god under phrf -50, but not impossible. Here comes the PS, I prefer trimarans, but you will not beat the r33 for speed/$/thrill
  13. Affordable racing tris vs. cats (<35ft)

    At 3000 lbs a r33 is not that heavy, at 700sq ft of sail to weather ( with a small jib) she has a great weight to hp ratio, add a 600 sq ft screecher or a 1100 assy spinnaker and you have a serious contender. I promise to stop pitching the R33 but there isn't another boat that can be bought at that price boat that sleeps 4, fits on a telescoping trailer in two hours and sails at -65. The PS, on my bucket list is to WIN the r2ak, i would be interested in setting up the r33 for the race if i found the right crew, but the crew would need to be very, very, very serious, the race is not cheap.
  14. Affordable racing tris vs. cats (<35ft)

    There are two Reynolds 33s for sale on craigslist, one is Randy's and one is my friends. One is 16ft, one is 14ft wide, $39,500 and $60k. buying one from Randy would be a prize if you got to sail with him! He is bad ass. I guess on that note i will have to buy an ad.
  15. Affordable racing tris vs. cats (<35ft)

    There is nothing wrong with Farriers and for many reasons they are the smart money, but sailing phrf of 0 is not the same sport as -50 or lower. The costs associated with -50 or lower are much greater, except for the Reynolds 33,. I never cared for them as i thought the beams looked funny, narrow overall and too expensive. After sailing one i would bet money it is the best high performance catamaran ever built, (in the US), the cats are almost free (Due to the huge depreciation, caused by the 14ft beam), and the parts are reasonable. I do like a Gougeon 32 for solo sailing.
