      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. Would it be usable as an artificial reef?
  2. Girl with patreon account goes sailing in hot place

    He has said almost nothing about her, not even her name. And I hate her already. Mads is cute, earnest, and self-deprecating. He's way too young for me, but all the same: Back off, LA-woman!!
  3. My newest project

    Surely it would be trivial to rig up an eye on the edge of deck of which a length of shockcord could be attached to secure the boom when at anchor or docked? In other circumstances, the boom isn't going to move much once the sheet is tightened.

    I agree with those who say first learn to sail I'm also a firm believer that dinghies are the best boats to learn in, unless your health and fitness makes that impossible (in which case I'd recommend a reasonably fast, small, open keelboat). A dinghy responds much more quickly to the winds and waves, and also to what you do, so you learn much more quickly than in a floating caravan.

    But alligators!

    It would also be a good idea not to build cities in low-lying coastal plains in tropical storm zones

    Years ago, I sailed a J/24 with a #2 genoa of ~125% (I never measured it). It had some uses when beating into in heavy seas, but it had quite a narrow band, and since J/24s don't respond well to crew jumping around changing headsails, it was rarely used. I'd start with the 100% and 150%, and see for yourself how often you'd actually want an in-betweener.

    About five habitually aggressive, sweary people are using me as the current target for your aggressive sweariness. You are not "everyone".

    "bitterness"? If you want to see bitterness, go look at your own posts to me, or Jack's, or Sail4beer's. I'm not the one using disagreements as an opportunity for crude, substance-free personal abuse

    Wow. That's heavy. My dog died over over five years ago, and I still miss him. I recall when your dog died a few years ago, and you posted about how upset you were. Bob, what have I done to you, to deserve a comment like that?

    In East Anglia they overwinter boats in mud berths. Maybe it's the same logic?
  13. CATARI comes along at Pacific Seacraft

    Yes, but you missed the point I was trying to make, and don't seem to want to consider it. I get a sense that you are trying to find fault, rather than have a friendly discussion ... so I'll leave you to it.
  14. CATARI comes along at Pacific Seacraft

    Wow. I disagree with Bob about one thing, and you assume i want to start trouble? I am appalled by personal attacks on Bob, and the last thing I would want to do is to launch one myself. I like and admire him too much, and it's not my style. However, I note that you comment here only to launch a volley of personal abuse at me. You are projecting. Have a lie down or some time out or something.
