      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.

    the two forward holes were for a loveday loop system.. kind of like end boom sheeting but works from the mid boom... we are planning on utilising them for gimballed beer holders!! yes!! a richie is richie cunningham!! my mainsheet hand calls it "smart-pig"... get it? yeah nah, we just frown at him.. and refuse to adjust until he calls it richie...

  3. hi guys, we recently did an update on our control systems, we originally had everything leading onto the cabin top to sets of halyard locks.. but found when we blasting down hill, the forward hand had both hands on kite sheet and couldnt adjust anything like vang or the richie. so we installed a console into the cockpit floor. its out of an australian lightweight sharpie ( 19ft 3 man dinghy) the console is basically identical to an etchells console. weve actually found it really great! 5 control lines and swivelling main cleat . from pointy end to blunt end we have tack line, bowsprit pole, richie, vang and backstay. pics attached
  4. Please explain...

    hopefully this helps RACKS WINGS FLAIR
