      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. J/44 Equivalent / Comparable boat (in Europe)?

    Why not buy one from the Ststes and ship or sail it over?

    Such great boats...I sailed on Lora Ann on LIS and we had a solid fleet for years...LA has been setup for short handed racing - Bermuda, Block Island and Vineyard Races..happy to pass along Rich's info by PM if you'd like to get in touch with him. He put a new bulkhead in the v berth for a retractable sprit.
  4. Hey, Bob Perry

    Happy birthday Bob! Back out on the FT 10 Red Stripe next week!

    ...says the main trimmer... Usually helps....maybe more bud heavies should be stationed on the rail?!!
  8. FT-10

    go for it...plenty of people here to help you sort things out as you go...as for build quality, the Tiger I've sailed on for the past 5-6 years has had no structural issues of any sort...buy w/ confidence! oh and as for dicking around with the family, have fun sailing past everybody...just might want to trav down as she's a wee tender!

  13. Flying Tiger

    I'd think if you're in and around the Pilots Point area you'd be fine...you can't adjust the keel while in a slip or underway.
  14. Flying Tiger

    nope, just don't hit anything!! seriously, there are 3 between Southport and Black Rock on the CT side...where would your boat be? LIS has plenty of boats that draw more than 7' just stay behind a J44!!
