      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. Replacing the rod rigging on Southern Star

    Contact By Baldridge owner of Classic Cafe in Seabrook, Tx. He was a previous owner. Robbie Young probably has some experience with the rigging. Good luck!
  2. Melges 24 Worlds Organization

    How about the organization at the worlds? Are we ok with it?
  3. Melges 24 Worlds Organization

    No doubt the sailing will be great. Could not find anything new usefull on FB. Rough calculation is the OA has collected 90-100k for the entry fee and party tickets. Hopefully its a first class shore side operation. Time will tell...
  4. Looking at the web site and the limited information available I don't have a warm fuzzy feeling that things are good shore side. Please tell me i'm wrong! And why did MYC back out? And why are they pawning off crane time to MYC? Whats going on?
  5. Boat Recommendations

    U20 can sail to its phrf rating. Great boat! Easy to rig and race.
  6. November I had my bicep tendon severed at home on a Sunday, scared me more than it hurt. Went to work on Monday, walk into the docs office Monday PM, he took one look and said come back Thursday and we'll fix it. Out patient surgery, Doc went in on the inside of my elbow, two inch scar. The x-ray of the tendon anchor repair looked very straightforward. Was back at work the following Monday. Missed 1.5 days of office work. Had to cancel KW but started back racing at Charleston. No formal physical therapy, i just kept straightening the arm over and over. No stiffness, no future pain and suffering,etc. I'm just a weekend warrior racing 24 regattas/weekends a year at 47 years of age... Question: Can this guy not get a job associated with his degree? If this guy is found racing on a pro level again, does Swartz have any recourse?

    Halyard lock fixed?
  8. Ker 43 Ptarmigan

    Bill, how about the fix for the main halyard lock? Is Huey still going up at the end of the day?
  9. espo is a dick

    Didn't Espo elected to sail PHRF in KW instead of sailing in the J-29 one-design class??
