      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.

  2. Cohen reveals Sean Hannity as a client. Hannity denies it.

    Don't mind seeing Hannity sweat but why do we give a fuck about this relationship? TV are sure wanking themselves dry over it.

    I suppose the answer to the soft quarters is so you can sail it like this...
  4. Craigslist Finds

    Wonder why it is so soft in the quarters ?
  5. Even with an inner tube, the valve stem has a short metal tube that houses the Schrader valve. That could freeze and crack... if you were unlucky. The have admired the wheels on the RS Aero trolley for their low flotation volume design.
  6. Turbo Opti

    I fully support the Opti Wonder Bra
  7. 25% antifreeze will get you down around zero F. You probably won't need to roll the trolley very often when it is that cold.
  8. Roy Moore 3rd rail?

    Where'd the thread go?
  9. looking for S2 7.9 photos

    I'm no help with rig tune. Boat history that I know begins with Les Bernabi who was Doyle loft in Oriental NC. He traded the 7.9 with the guy I had been racing with Campbell Edmunds (who died about 1996) for Campbell's Dehler DB-1. Last I heard, Les was out of the sail business and in Montana. I owned boat from around 1995 until 2000ish and only day sailed it. I traded it to Wally Chaplin who owned Oriental Sailmakers loft, Wally died too. Henry Frazer from Oriental Yacht Sales raced it some, you might give Henry a call.

    Intensity is intensely reponsive to emails. Just ask. edit- it's still there http://www.intensitysails.com/insapohesafo.html
  11. looking for S2 7.9 photos

    I got pitched over the lifeline on #455 and into the piss two times in one day when kneeling on jib with halyard in my teeth when I did foredeck for the PO. (before I bought it) Lively boat.
  12. looking for S2 7.9 photos

    Where is the boat now?
  13. Classic Airstream motor home for sale

    Trans probably a 4L80e I think the Allison boxes came with the newer 8.1l engine
  14. Sailing around the world in a San Juan 24

    Deported to Soviet Union
  15. Getting back into sailing

    Buy $1000 Laser or Force5 and sail every chance you get for a year. You'll figure out how important the capability to carry a second person is. You`ll relearn stuff you forgot and hone your skills. Sell after a year for $1000 and then buy next boat. Has anyone here gone straight from bog standard youth boats to a moth/wasp? I'm guessing the immediate success rate is fairly low on that transition.
  16. Red-green color deficiency corrective sunglasses

    I have moderate red/green colorblindness. A channel marker will be just a post with a blob on top, as soon as the shape comes into focus then the color pops out. I assume my brain fills in the misssing color data once I can see the shape. Anyone else experience this? No eye doctor I have seen had heard this.
  17. Craigslist Finds

    If your furler works okay, try unrolling about 2' of jib so the boat tacks reliably without full jib power.
  18. Craigslist Finds

    Does the pin pole just have a float that is submerged in that pic? Not sure I would like that flag on a pole as I often have to use the pin tetrahedron/ball to pick out which of several similar power boats is the RC looking back from near ww mark. I assume the don't use that pin for a leeward mark so maybe I could find my way back eventually.
  19. Which way the wind blows

    Guilty as charged
  20. Enclosed Dinghy Trailer

    v. A 7 footer, that 1.5' probably makes a big difference if you are not towing with a uhaul truck edit= but not much difference if you tow with a Fiat
  21. Enclosed Dinghy Trailer

    Did a search and low profile cargo trailers exist. http://haulmark.com/trailers/motorcycle-trailers/low-hauler/edge-low-hauler Good job taking the photo from a height exaggerating angle, guys
  22. Enclosed Dinghy Trailer

    Box trailers are heavy as fuck but a full height one is better than a tent for camping.
  23. Which way the wind blows

    I look at the one on the boat 2BL away. Much easier on the neck.

    Why a skiff thread with no posts from atefooterz?
