      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.

    3800 lbs and roughly 1 1/2 Times the sail area as a laser...
  2. Carbon Kevlar prepreg trampoline?

    Mine is carbon only. No blend.
  3. Carbon Kevlar prepreg trampoline?

    Stop by during Miami Race week and you can get some info on retrofitting a platform from soft tramp to carbon/Kevlar deck.
  4. Carbon Kevlar prepreg trampoline?

    Pretty much standard equipment for a 2017/2018 A-class with a decksweeper main. Saw several classic decksweeper conversions last weekend at the Nood’s.
  5. Zhik Xeflex Mid-Layer Jacket experience?

    I wore the bibs under my salopettes last month in a regatta where ice was forming on the deck. That was the only time I've ever sailed in those conditions and was perfectly comfortable.
  6. Foiling injuries

    There is already gear on the market with impact protection designs - https://www.zhik.com/shop/men/technical-clothing/impact-gear.html#page=0&top=1&
  7. Sailors Powerboat

    Bought it at a govt surplus auction - labeled as a re-built motor in a crate. Opened it up and found a Slant-six lower wrapped in wax paper and grease. Sourced all of the rest of the parts off eBay - rebuilt head, Offenhauser aluminum 4-barrel intake, Holley 4-barrel, electronic ignition module, custom dragster cam (closest thing to a marine cam I could find), wet exhaust manifold and straight pipe exhaust led out under the waterline. It has a wicked idle note...
  8. Sailors Powerboat

    This my sailor's powerboat. 1979 Sisu 22. Full keel, prop in an aperture, rudder. Goes anywhere at 10 knots, easy to beach, kind of thirsty though with a modded out Mopar Slant-Six. Install the side panels and kerosene heater for winter cruising
  9. R2AK 2018

    The cat is one of the infamous Reynolds 33's. I had one for a couple of years... A lot of fun, but you had to keep on your toes or you were going to go swimming.
  10. A Class Worlds - Classic Division

    Looking forward to it. Already booked a condo at The Bay for 3 of us and the wives.
  11. A Class Worlds - Classic Division

    I converted my Geltek from canted boards to C's and sailed it a couple of years that way - it was a pitchpole machine. Later I added winglets and sliders and it made a huge difference. Upwind with the board set neutral, it sailed like it was on rails. Downwind on big air days, I would pull the boards back until the bows lifted and could send it as hard as you wanted. I can't say that I ever pitchpoled it again. The current owner is out their kicking ass in the classic fleet with it.
  12. The Zombie Fleet

    Looks like Lake Lanier to me. And yes, that is where they filmed Ozark...
  13. Which Smock to buy

    $999 USD - slated to launch in Dec.
  14. 2017- Fort Walton-Viper North Americans

    Mambo, Hush your mouth! FWYC is the top secret winter training base for the A-Class. Flat water, sea breeze, and a yacht club that goes out of their way to make you feel like a local. Have you made it to Tommy’s for breakfast yet? MK
  15. Which Smock to buy

    Here's what the hood looks like - http://www.sail-world.com/Australia/Latest-Zhik-Isotak-X-arriving-in-time-for-Rolex-Sydney-Hobart/158236 You'll probably see the Volvo guys wearing theirs once they turn south...
