      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.

    But wait, there’s a ship, maybe it has
  2. Radio controlled sailing

    I have nothing of value to add here, other than I hope this becomes a long-running thread. I’d get one of these to futz around with in a heartbeat if we weren’t perpetually shelling everything we own to not to drown like hoarders in a tiny urban condo. Damn fun, I bet. Carry on.

    That’s just beautiful.

  5. Another fatality for Clipper Around the World.

    At the risk of sounding insensitive - not absolving the organization of accountability, but have to throw-in with those on the side of voluntary assumption of risk. You’re going to the Southern Ocean in a teacup for crying out loud. It seems like I can’t even go to a 10k charity run without seeing CPR in progress, or a body bag. We’re not rushing out in mass to shut down those organizations. They shoot horses, don’t they...?

    ...slowly I turned...
  7. Two sailors and dogs rescued after 5 months

    Methinks this train wreck still has far to go. Sorry.
  8. Two sailors and dogs rescued after 5 months

    You know, it just occurred to me that about the only thing missing from Appel’s prolific curriculum vitae is a stint in roller derby. Could it be she’s Skinny Minny Moocher, reincarnate...?
  9. Why don't more people race?

    I still think there’s value in racing. And I don’t knock those who make the commitment. After growing up on family (cruising) keelboats and my own dinghy, it wasn’t until I got into racing as a 30-something adult that a real passion for sailing was awakened. I felt I was truly “in it” and became a student of sailing, whereas before it was just something to do in summer. But I think you’re right, either you keep upping your game and rationalizing sunk costs, or you reach a tipping point and attention begins to fade...

    The walrus is Paul.

    Never gonna get that smell off the saddle..
  12. Why don't more people race?

    The force is strong in this one. Already such an old soul...
  13. Two sailors and dogs rescued after 5 months

    Would that be a kaleidoscope, or a colonoscope?
  14. X 24 class is a simplified J 24

    Yeah. About as much of a horror show as retrofitting a sprit and asym on a facking J24... About as useful as sewing a third arm into my face.
  15. X 24 class is a simplified J 24

    With all due respect, why on earth would anyone pour money into modifying a boat that can be had for <$5,000k in pretty much any market? around here they’re practically free. Apaud the spirit of getting more people out, but it smells a bit of diminishing returns. Like putting disc brakes and a new Dura Ace gruppo on a 1982 celeste Bianchi frame, just because steel was so real...
