      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. Installing a removable cruising Anchor system

    Check out how done on J44.removable bow roller
  2. Polishing stainless welds

    Try local motorcycle shop. They use it to get blue off pipes
  3. 12 meters in Long Island

    Both 46 and 42 Saw in Fisher's west harbor then Newport with Arabella
  4. How about J44. If your in LIS there is level racing. Most are converting to asymmetrics for distance.
  5. When is last time you changed exhaust mixing elbow? Black smoke is sign that it's clogged so only getting partial fuel burn.
  6. Stack pack or not?

    Use lazy jacks. Have line with Brummell hooks under boom where jacks attach. When club/shorthand racing can detach and move jacks forward to mast or remove entirely when fully crewed. Incidentally boat is J44.
  7. Using the head while racing

    Obviously none of crew are female
  8. Sadly, as the diversity of performance characteristics broadens and the number of participants decreases it appears that the sport as we know it will continue to contract neither new rating systems nor race management techniques like grouping by characteristic can do much more than delay. Maybe shifting the focus to the pleasure and joy of sailing to attract and increase participation should be the focus.
