      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.

    Finally ended up buying a 1982 CS36T, boat is in good shape but has been neglected for the last few years, needs more TLC than we really wanted to do, but the price reflected that and her survey was OK. Back in Ontario now, regretfully, but plan to get back to her soon. Thanks for all of the helpful suggestions.

    I will!

    Thanks Ish.
  4. Shoal Draft Cruiseworthy boats that sail well for under $50,000.

    Thanks for the list Tom, must have taken some time to compile.

    Still looking online and will be back on the left coast in late Sept. Will have my wife with me this time so able to make a decision on the spot. We appreciate the feedback. There is a C & C 38 landfall ( I have heard them called landfill) up in Comox that looks interesting at 55K and seems well equipped, would appreciate any comments.

    Yes I saw the ad for the Sceptre but did not have time to go see it. Will look next time I am out and I am surprised it hasn't sold already.

    Thanks Ish, I should have taken you up on the offer the first time and will do if another comes up that is close to you.

    Did not do sea trial, did not do survey, sellers opinion of ready to go sailing and mine were very different. Boat needed way more work than I am willing to do and guess I should have realized that just from the price. Just returned from Sydney and did see some very suitable candidates for what I have in mind. Looking to sail from Sydney, {Van Isle Marina Yacht Park Program} mostly in the off and shoulder seasons, need comfortable 34 to 36 ft. sailboat, budget up to about $50k.

    Thanks, decided to come out to see it, and do sea trial on 6th, then survey if all OK.

    Ish, we have just emailed the seller and wonder if you have seen this boat, and if it is really worth flying to BC to look at. We used to live on the island before sailing away many years ago, and would love to relive some of those sailing days. Unfortunately we have to live at our small farm in Ontario for the present but would sail this in the shoulder seasons.

    Beautiful, love the music.
