      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. Wow, thanks Spoffo. Apparently the Rod was still convinced of his barge? "Brand new boat"... The sense of reality is weak with this one. I had the feeling he was somehow getting a little closer to reality over the last weeks, apparently not.
  2. Some pagan Redneck-Seafarer-Ceremony thingy? "May there always be a rock nearby to climb on when your vessel sinks"
  3. Sir, I take offense at your derogatory tone! Oh god you have to love the internets... Now, back to the the SHIT SHOW! HEY! Aren't you Batman? Na na na na na na na na na na na na na na na na... BATMAN!
  4. I hope HotRod´s mother in law is prepared, if not she should talk to this fine woman: http://blogs.shawconnect.ca/tech/woman-explores-the-ocean-with-custom-wheelchair/
  5. Don´t tell him, he might build a bigger one.
  6. http://www.st.nmfs.noaa.gov/pls/webpls/cgv_pkg.vessel_id_list?vessel_id_in=1234524 Hull Material: FRP (Fiberglass) Sure thing. Hailing Port: LAHAINA HI Im wondering if he still thinks he will make it there at least once. Can you choose whatever you want as your "Hailing Port" in the US?
  7. Would you really donate an old raft and a beacon to him? Insanely generous of you, might save his life that gift. I really do feel for the guy, I don't want to see anyone get hurt when one of those plywood sheets shits the bed. I think I have an old radar reflector somewhere, I'll look for it. Does he have at least life vests? Someone should really stop him from going anywhere without any life saving equipment. A radar reflector would be of great help too, as this boat was obviously under the 10.000 designs he studied:
  8. Thanks for the pic! It seems there is some damage on the starboard hull? Anyway, go HotRod!! Show them haters... how it collapses later.
  9. First of many failures to come. Thanks for the information lilmurray.
  10. +1 Please someone cover this. I love this thread and i would even click on some random ads here for a video of the launch!
