      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.

    Varnishing for boatspeed. Wooden masts that don't break. Staying on the tender.

    Brodie- I think that was me! Thank you again, you saved us that night. If I remember correctly you had a mooring over at Clark's? Bob- Class rules permit vangs however the geometry of anchoring it to the mast is poor. There is a history in the class of attempts at vangs however with the length of the boom there is also a history of snapping booms. For a few years the class permitted aluminum booms and masts (due to difficulty sourcing wooden ones) and I believe the aluminum booms took the load better. Presently, most of us are on the lookout for a fat guy who will sit in the main on the downwind legs and trust us not to jibe...

    I'm massively biased and though it has been used for cruising and even a honeymoon - I think the Herreshoff S boats deserve a mention in this thread. What might add to your consideration is that if any of you are willing to risk the splinters, the Narraganestt Bay fleet will welcome you aboard on for a sail or a race Tuesday nights (One Design) Wednesday nights (PHRF) or at one of our weekend regattas. There are also boats available for charter. More information posted at https://sites.google.com/site/nbhsca/ or please PM me. Cheers-
