      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. "I'd rather sail than varnish!", who says that?

    For years I varnished teak handrails coamings dorade box’s trims etc one season took it all off and just went sailing. Been over ten years and sure don’t miss it at all.
  2. "I'd rather sail than varnish!", who says that?

    I own a wooden yacht because I have a deep aversion to accumulating wealth.

  13. AC36 - The Venue

    Cost are pretty well split between central and local government. Mayor Goff is already accepting that the budget will blow out which is pretty usual for these kind of projects. Amazing that the City is broke and wham here is 100 million for a yacht race. 214 million and counting public cost for the AC with projected return of 1 billion sounds better than bitcoin.

    I suppose all the public submissions made to Council now become redundant. https://www.stuff.co.nz/sport/other-sports/102672658/team-nz-remain-waterfront-nomads-under-new-americas-cup-base-plan

    Its farkin cold and ruff. From Dee yesterday It is cold, bitterly cold on deck and down below. 3 degrees air temperature and 4 degrees sea temperature, makes for icy fingers and cheeks. The windy weather is due soon and we will have it blow hard for a good 12 hours before we return to the strong winds we have now, but it will take us to Cape Horn.
