      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. You sick of reading that anologue barometer??

    USB hasn't been a bad experience, it has worked perfectly well and setting it up in expedition and subsequently out to deckman and B&G displays is easy, giving you all the strip chart options you could ever want. With using it in a strip chart i get easy access and good viewing options via my deckscreen/tablet.

    Ive been using starpath minkata http://www.fischer-barometer.de/katalog/dokumente/meteo/e330202_02.pdf for a few years now, very good. Can interface into expedition and subsequently deckman.

  7. Brisbane to Kepple

    That was fun... On the Alive we managed a few videos which are unedited https://www.facebook.com/Aliveyachting/?fref=ts Only saw a few whales with one making the helmsman sweat as it went down not far from the side of yacht whilst at 20+. Never been that quick out of the bay and we have set a new benchmark for the boat been past Cape Capricorn at dawn.

    aahh memories
  9. Most years they do theBig boat challenge.. S2H Brisbane to Keppel Hammo race week. Billionaire's can do what they want with their money but canters have screwed offshore racing for us little guys. The great thing about offshore racing used to be that unlike any other sport on earth you could show up at a Grand Prix in your family sedan and if everything went well you could actually win. But now the handicap results are listed top to bottom in money spent. Motor racing and yachting are now the only sports where you can buy your trophies. Unless you count marriage as a sport. Didn't Hicko win a hobart, Chris Morgan win a Keppel in recent years
  10. Sorry Malcolm, Listened to your innerview.. Your corporate line on the Sowrey sage and the Water Quality issue at RIO was nothing short of the voice of your puppet master. Bet you wouldn't go for a swim in that raw sewerage called a sailing venue.... Where is the Occ Health and safety concerns of the sailors?

  12. Yeh i know, buy an add, the last add i bought on here they didnt even publish it, but yes the Red Box Boat is for sale. http://www.tradeboat...t-85-od-review/ The red one in the pics in the review.
  13. So what news of Syd's new ride?

    Don't forget the water ballast, there is significant displacement control (approx 20%) when you have the ability to add that much water

    Sorry Incorrect, conversely BG was the only boat in the first 7 across the line not to have a measured spinnaker, the others ranged from a yes, SPA 971.81 to SPA 497.91. I watched it sailing for over a day close by, given a race where BG is at its optimum point on its performance curve, were not going to see it and dare i say nor are the others........ Its IRC displacement is well under earlier opinions.....

    On the IRC Race cert i looked at. No spinnakers
