      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.

    go to sleep, Mad Dog, you're drunk. I mean exhausted.

    deleted b/c ProaSailor beat me to it. Bummer about Heart of Gold. If only his knee was as good as his heart.

    Heart of Gold is going the wrong way -- I hope everything's ok..

    mine seems to be working still, so here you go (but I'm about to leave work so I can't keep updating, sorry) back of fleet
  5. ...IC kit...'machete'...'

    I dig the Machete, and if I wasn't over-subscribed already, I would want a test ride on an IC to see if I wanted it as much as I think I do.. The Chalana certainly looks like a blast. Regarding 2 person trap boat, I'm assuming you've considered the Fireball.
  6. I went to the SR site & blog, and they seemed mostly dead (that is, not updated since July), until I noticed the following status in the upper right: "second sail of mk2 model of Mk3 Rocket. Weapon." Larso's clearly holding out on us, more than I thought..

    Where on Facebook? When I search for "sailrocket", I get two pages but both look inactive.

    for fuck's sake, I was hoping to see you push the record above 60, but this is just ridiculous. Well done, good onya, etc. Once you recover from this rum front, give Helena a shot. Brilliant stuff.
  9. Vestas Sailrocket

    good on 'em! (would I be greedy if I said I wanted to see them keep going and push the record above 60kts?)
  10. Vestas Sailrocket

    Well done to the Sailrocket team to get to this point. It's very exciting to see you on the threshold of setting some serious records after following your progress over the years. At those speeds, the runway must feel pretty short -- at this rate, you're going to need a longer runway. Can't wait to see you realize the potential of the VSR2.
  11. Floating Jib Leads?????????????

    tracks are nice for round-the-buoys, padeyes work fine for off-shore when you've got more time to futz. What size boat is this for?
