      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.

  3. Sailing around the world in a San Juan 24

    Rimas has 2 new videos up on his FB page...the first is about 3 minutes with him narrating and self promoting ...towards the end he asks for donations and sponsorship...he wants to be able to do much more updating as his voyage progresses.... the sailing video is a voice over of Mimsy sailing 161 NM out of Siapan....the other video is something he pulled from the web a professional feature of Hawaii...only watch a few seconds of that one....
  4. Sold everything to sail the world...boat sunk on day 2

    I thought about going up there last week...there were very low tides 8-9-10 AM I thought maybe from the bridge with binocs I could see something. I did talk to the SeaTow that did the first rescue and the Captain I spoke with was very familiar with the boat and did know about the GFM and said they had not been incontact with the 2 for any further services. Johns Pass is full of tourists and businesses no way am I going to go sleuthing about in search for the 2 or hearing rumors of what might be happening. If RKoch has a boat that can take me out there I'll go in the water for a look
  5. Sold everything to sail the world...boat sunk on day 2

    they have been hanging around the waterfront, some divers took them out last week not sure what for other than possibly recovering something the two needed documents, stash of cash other personal stuff ......anyway it would not be a stretch for a scheming guy with a boat powerful enough to strike a deal for GFM % and drag that wreckage 1/2 mile offshore and no one would ever see it again...
  6. Sold everything to sail the world...boat sunk on day 2

    no way that thing is in 3 pieces or even 2...unless it was deliberately cut apart...there were no natural forces at work strong enough...
  7. “In fraud we trust”

    Yeah no glove days....we used to use a cleaner/solvent it was simply labeled #5 Cleaner...no other writing on the label...we bought it from Pilgrims Permacoat in Tampa....same place we bought 30 lbs bags of asbestos..... :-)

  11. Sold everything to sail the world...boat sunk on day 2

    I simply can not imagine the boat breaking up....it was not floating..no pounding if not floating....unless it was struck my another vessel which so far has not been part of the story.....I really do not think it has broken up, rather the term has been misused...I suspect the hull and deck are still together with miscellany still attached surrounding the boat giving the appearance of a larger mass
  12. Sailing around the world in a San Juan 24

    And that could come at ANY moment....once his hosts realize his excuses are endless and he is making no effort to improve his own lot or make arrangements to leave on his own....I am sure his act is wearing thin....the smiley hospitality vibe from the Vietnamese will turn into sudden shunning if not outright hostility by the local officials
  13. Sold everything to sail the world...boat sunk on day 2

    slang...MoA...was the term used on my first ocean racing experience ...1968 SORC...and sea buoy...however I did learn the proper name in this thread and it is not much harder to say...

    He is back with the new ownership providing vision and strategy in this powerboat building boom cycle
  15. Sold everything to sail the world...boat sunk on day 2

  16. Fast "safe" boat....

  17. Sold everything to sail the world...boat sunk on day 2

  18. Sold everything to sail the world...boat sunk on day 2
