      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. Are you running apple or android? I had purchased one about 16 months ago and in October went up to the boat and it was gone from my masthead. Should have used a thread lock to insure it wouldn't back off the post. I use me ipad and found that it took me about 3 months of sailing to understand what it can do. Just hope I get one sent to me soon.
  2. Has anyone who paid for a preorder to SailTimer actually received a shipment this year? I placed an order in October 2016 and have as yet to receive my wind instrument. Each email I send is replied back with a blurb someone copy and pastes into a response. The newsletters since January started with shipping soon to in June now shipping and July will be caught up on preorders. Sadly nothing for my money.
  3. I have had the newer version of the sailtimer since January of 2016 and it worked well 90% of the time. There were scattered issues of dropping the connection between the wind vane and my ipad, but could reconnect fairly quickly. As to the noise level, I only heard the noise coming down the mast on quiet days, standing next to the mast in the cabin. My issue with the unit is that over the course of the last week it managed to unscrew itself from the mounting rod (with locking nut to secure it to the rod) and fall overboard. Either that or somebody climbed my mast and took it off the mounting rod. Overall it worked as described and became a valued tool on my boat.
