      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. NEED HELP !!!

    Is this cross-threaded from Sunk on Day2?
  2. Sailors Powerboat

    All
  3. Google & Babel Yacht Brokers

    Mmmm. Drunk hare. Game bunnies/hares need lots of drunking. Hutch bunnies are tender goodness.;)
  4. Coolboats to admire

    ^Front-loading boards seems less ideal than top loading (or even bottom loading units... ;(
  5. flex couple tranny to prop shaft

    Proper flexible tranny couple to shaft? Yikes!
  6. Offshore sailing’s quite unusual in it taking time doing it to build a skill set. Most sports only require a quick flick through the sports channels and a weekend experiential before you can perform them with intended skill and without risk to yourself or others.
  7. Vestas 11th Hour recovery

    I’m not sure it’s car-toppable? Sailby’s lowloader might work, but will take a little longer to allow for nannystating escorts and speeds. And stops for pies.
  8. Sailors Powerboat

    Also... I get it’s a motorboat, but hanging fenders from the inner hull?
  9. Sailors Powerboat

    Wave piercing stabilisers. Why not wave piercing cross beams? There’s probably less cross-sectional area in the hulls from bow-on.
  10. Oyster Yachts gone bust

    F or H haven’t made little boats since the 1950s and own their spot in the bigboat lux world. Oyster have been leaving their own turf to compete on new ground. Still curious whether 20x 40-50’ make more or less profit than 4x 70-80’ per year?
  11. Small 4 stroke outboards for windrider17

    Jeez guys - helping out a b00bless n00b? This place used to have standards. Perhaps the mods could activate the feature that auto-Ignores newbies until offerings are made.
  12. Oyster Yachts gone bust

    Anyone in the industry know whether it’s more lucrative to make lots of little boats or fewer big ones? Quite a few lux brands like oyster only offer(ed) big and have ditched even midsize.. Like >50++ feet multimillion as their baby models?!
  13. Oyster Yachts gone bust

    Hmmm. Discovery already have a set of Discovery RS boats from 48-68’ and Southerly RS from 33-68’ plus two big wildcard Bluewater cats. They seeking a canasta? (Guess the cats are the black treys?) p.s. oyster’s webpage now on ice.
  14. Coolboats to admire

    You still get germanic and jap quality - but you now also pay the branding. Korea worth a look these days for general precision engineering: Will try, can do.
  15. Hallberg Rassy Launched a new 57 Footer

    Anyone fallen onto the stove whilst on port tack? Yet?
