      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. oh, the intolerance of the self-called "tolerants"
  2. ^^^ditto!
  3. be my guest spending your sailing years in the building process. bye.
  4. if your main goal is to sail (instead of spend years building), buy a boat.
  5. ^^^this!
  6. just received this from the kind waszp folks.
  7. well, i'll surely take your word on that.
  8. sure, but not on the typical downwind west coast races or the transpac.
  9. the bill lee santa cruz designs (and the west coast sleds in general) follow the same concept. the famous sled sc 70 rated the same as an ior 80-footer but measuring a mere 68 feet loa.
  10. definately. i'd rather be trialed by my pairs then carried by my friends.
  11. the difference, imho, is that the french and the kiwis designed boats they believed to be fast sorta desregarding the rules or, at least, the major design trends t the rules, while the others designed boats to be seen, by the rule, as slower as they really were - hence the bumps, hollows and distortions.
