      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.

    Thanks mate. Saved the day. BT switched the AC to BT Sport 2 which you have to pay extra for. Awesome race.

    It was after the end of Race 7, BT Sport going thru the re-run at 40:25. When you go back and look at Blair Tuke, he is hardly cycling at all, but is head down, with his finger on a control.

    Worth emphasising that the deck is the most difficult complex and longest time to build individual component. They only had to replace about the last metre of the deck. The rest was fine. The shame was they couldn't recover the mast and keel. Keel fin and mast were both deliberately destroyed during the recovery effort. Pretty much everything else on the boat was salvaged and reused. Which is a lot of pretty expensive gear. The new hull included a huge amount of newly built internal components - like new keel box, bulkheads and the like. Structurally there is a lot of new boat. Thanks for clearing that up. Though never saw any footage of them dropping the rig on the reef.

    I thought that the Vestas was a new build. From the reports I saw, In the end they threw away the wreck as beyond repair and built a new boat? So not a Frankenboat.
