      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.

    Yup. You actually complained to Mona that she personalized her sales quotation to you by including a photo of your boat that she found on the internet (ie: already in the public domain). Most customers appreciate that personal touch. Not a great start to a business relationship. In fact, we don't want to do business with you at all now. Sorry. Phil A simply explanation was all that was needed, I'm sorry if I jumped to conclusions. I've had issues with photos being used before.

    CCI has completely stopped replying to my emails after I pointed out they were using one of my photos without permission. Not super impressed with their customer service at the moment, guess I'm SOL with this pos rudder.

    When it breaks, take a look at the construction. I would sail it until it breaks but it actually doesn't fit in the cassette any more due to some expansion along the crack. Sent an email to Phils and received a quote back for $1500 for a new one. Seems a little steep for a rudder with multiple breakages.

    Looks like my Phils Foils rudder is about to go as well, a large crack has formed at the lower edge of the cassette. Seems a little strange that two rudders are having issues in the same location?

    Does anyone have current rig tuning info? I’ve got some great tips from Alan Barnes but a baseline to start from would be nice.

    As I mentioned, that's why several of us have gone to custom rudders from Phil's Foils(Competition Composites). +1 for the Phil's Foils rudder, shitton lighter as well.

    When did you pick up my old boat? We brought it up to Canada from Oregon beginning of July Penticton - Dallas - Hood River - Vancouver. I'd call that a circumnavigation of sorts. Enjoy the boat! We did. She sure has moved around a bit! Definitely been enjoying the boat, even managed to pick up a pickledish in the few months we've had it.
