      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. What sad news. He was so active in Puget Sound racing for a long time, I remember him from his days in the South Sound area. Fair winds Bruce. JM
  2. Here in PDX the results are posted and if there are errors the competitors let us know right away. Go ahead and post the times you received and if there are issues you will probably hear about them. Then it is a simple redress issue. JM
  3. On my Martin 241 the furler is part of the forestay with the wire between the swivels. The jib has a zippered luff that goes around the stay with the halyard running inside next to the stay and attached at the bottom drum with a short purchase to adjust luff tension. JM
  4. Sailronin, Congratulations on the new boat, you should have a lot of fun with the O29. As for the emergency rudder, I have been talking to others about the best plans and a cassette mounted on the transom with a blade you insert seems to be the way to go lately. You can put the cassette on anytime, but if you wait until it is needed, putting the cassette on and sliding in the blade is easier than trying to mount a blade onto the gudgeons while bouncing around. JM
  5. Equus is signed up. JM
  6. FBW Cherokee. This may stick. Good luck to you guys! JM
  7. In for my 6th time, this one on Equus. JM
  8. More NW boats (that I can remember), San Juan 28 (from back in the day) Moana Kai-Moan and Cry J109 Tantivy-Tan Titties JM
  9. I believe that Wildfire was sitting in the West Basin at Astoria the last time I was there a year or two ago. JM
  10. Joby Easton AND Bill Huseby are a great team that have done very well with Raindrop before. JM
  11. I still see a smile sticker on a raceboat, but they are almost faded away. But Kelly will never fade from our memories. Sail on Kelly. JM
  12. There is one here in PDX that sat glued to the dock for a long time that was just sold to someone else here in town who is cleaning it up to race this season. JM
  13. Was it out of the environment? JM
  14. I bought Enigma back in the late 80's from Alameda, it was dark blue and called Chinese Hedge, so not originally from Seattle (sail no is/was 8344). Owned by a contractor in the area. JM
  15. There was a Moisture Missile in Portland during the late 80's/early 90's, red boat with white stripe. Not sure where it went after that. JM
