      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. one of the first things I tell new crew is stay the fuck out of the arc of travel of the tiller.. a demonstration by by whacking them with the tiller a few times usually etches that concept into their thick skulls... it's imperative that you be able to steer the boat.. if you're not confident enough to hang onto the tiller, go out and play with your boat and practice until you are.
  2. owned a CLK 320 like a lot of other 2 door "4 seater" ragtops.. not really room in the back seat fro 2 adults. a coupe kids maybe.. but very limited footroom
  3. What a wonderful contribution to the discussion!
  4. https://www.cars.com/for-sale/searchresults.action/?bsId=20202&page=1&perPage=30&prMx=8000&rd=99999&searchSource=GN_REFINEMENT&sort=relevance&stkTypId=28881&zc=20733
  5. but they probably don't have the inventory or production capacity to respond to a situation like the aftermath of these storms also, they are not publicly traded. could be a great company and it is a neat idea
  6. and it's not one, but two, hydraulic control arms on the autohelm!
  7. bump bumpity bump bump bump
  8. not to sidetrack the thread too much, but of all the threads on here that have discussed the decline of sailing... the note from the owner says it all...... it's sad that the kids activities aren't centered around their boat and keeping the memory and legacy going.
  9. Tropical Tidbits
  10. here we go again .... hope the the islands in the Caribbean catch a break with this one. http://www.nhc.noaa.gov/graphics_at5.shtml?cone#contents sorry for the extra thread .. didn't see the boiling atlantic one before I started this one...
  11. this site lets you run the GFS and EURO and a few other forecasting models.... your mileage may vary LOL https://www.tropicaltidbits.com/analysis/models/?model=gfs&region=us&pkg=z500a&runtime=2017091200&fh=12&xpos=0&ypos=112
  12. not sure either. but when I had an electrician install a circuit to plug my genset into the house... he said be sure to shut off the main breaker so that current doesn't flow back into the grid and kill somebody repairing a line they thought was dead from this direction
