      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. Articulation bowsprit / how to?

    On my yacht, if you are rotating sprit to leeward it have effect on the helm: bow has tendency to go leeward as well due to the move of assimetric sail center far below boats center line. In stronger wind with sprit on leeward almost impossible to keep boat straight and up.
  2. Articulation bowsprit / how to?

    Hi! As usual I keep my pole max back and only when apparent angle comes too close, or became impossible to keep good aspinnaker shape, or keep boat stright, pole goes close to stright position. In light winds (up to 10) gybe and pole articulating we do our best to make simultaniosly but when it is a lot of wind, first pole goes to center position, gybe and then pole to windward max or half of it. My boat is Bull7000, she likes pole max to windward. At least I think so
