      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. MTC 40

    I am in contact with the owner who, indeed, has withdrawn the add because he was, at the time, supposed to return to live in Brasil. But apparentely things have changed and now he intends to put the boat for sale once again. If you're interested, I can put you in contact with him.

    our club's rc boat down here in southern brazil. the donator hull comes from an o'day 37 sailboat
  4. MTC 40

    I used to sail/race on the brazilian mtc40 named verdeamarelo /14 bis some 6 or 7 years ago. It changed hands a couple of times in this period so I have no idea about the boat's state nowadays. It was a decently built boat, although a bit on the heavy side of the scale. The previous owner (or the one before that) removed the inboard diesel and installed a 90 hp (or was it a 75?) etec outboard.
