      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. VOR Leg 2 Lisbon to Cape Town

    Vila magic... Impressive last 48 hrs.
  2. VOR Leg 2 Lisbon to Cape Town

    Seeing the forecast, this looks far from over... But yeah, Go Vestas!
  3. New 1975 FD

    Sell it to a museum and get a new one...
  4. I'll be on Stand 02.121 (NZ Pavillion) as usual, but I'll be lurking around for cool stuff too. It'd be nice to meet some anarchists at beer time. @MR.CLEAN??
  5. Anyone used Kiwigrip and removed it?

    I'm affiliated with both and I don't ship out of Spain, so don't worry. The difference is basically that Gripelast is more resistant to chemicals (if you spill some fuel for example) and it's more flexible (feels a bit "softer"), so dropping stuff on it wont break it. Both are waterbased but Kiwigrip is acrylic and Gripelast is polyurethane. Both are great products.

    Maybe he just left....
  7. Anyone used Kiwigrip and removed it?

  8. Anyone Going to METSTRADE this year?

    Surprisingly dissapointing... Why? It didn't work!! They kept putting excuses, but basically, it's a good idea with only 1/2 of the R&D work done so far. I think tomorrow they were going to take some spring off the jammer and make two better placed holes to see if it worked
  9. AC75 Class Concept

    I've heard 75foot LOA, 60ft Beam.... And I'm not sure what to think really.
  10. VOR Leg 2 Lisbon to Cape Town

    In the "old days" they would try to do the same thing, not with AIS, but with radar.... Sailing 2-3000 Nm without seeing another boat is not good when you are racing, as romantic as it may seem. Being on radar range of other boats made you competitive.
  11. Old Whitbread/Volvo Ocean Race yachts

    I have no idea...
  12. Old Whitbread/Volvo Ocean Race yachts

    Old Tokio refitted and for sale...
  13. Old Whitbread/Volvo Ocean Race yachts

    If I weren´t in Amsterdam I'd have sailed her today... https://twitter.com/cruiser_racer/status/930119515115057152
  14. VOR Leg 2 Lisbon to Cape Town

    Can't find it... So maybe it was too good for PC police
  15. VOR Leg 2 Lisbon to Cape Town

    Just like testicles...
  16. VOR Leg 2 Lisbon to Cape Town

    Looks like fun...
  17. VOR Leg 2 Lisbon to Cape Town

    I have no idea, but that's pure Chuny... Nowhere to be seen when everyone's doing funky videos (he's down below , resting) but if he's needed on deck, he'll be there, probably with a different shirt than everyone else, (or butt naked if needed be), doing his job.
  18. Anyone Going to METSTRADE this year?

    I know... It looks pretty cool
  19. Anyone Going to METSTRADE this year?

    Cool, I'll try to drop by...
  20. Anyone Going to METSTRADE this year?

    I'm really sorry about your granny, that sucks, but we are at that age that parents and uncles get really old, let alone grandparents... If I can help with anything at METS, just let me know, I'll do my best...
  21. VOR Leg 2 Lisbon to Cape Town

    3 scheds off means 24 hr between positions... No?
  22. VOR Leg 2 Lisbon to Cape Town

    Yeah, That's part of your heritage here too...
  23. VOR Leg 2 Lisbon to Cape Town

    Dude, I'm far from 50, that hurts. Very much like Columbus I left Galicia at an early age, only to come back a grown man. BTW, @NORBowGirl, the Vikings came often to this land, lots of blue eyes around here...
  24. VOR Leg 2 Lisbon to Cape Town

    ITALIAN!!! Everybody knows Columbus was Galician!! http://www.cristobal-colon.com/christopher-columbus-galician/ Ok, I'll take my hat now... Carry on.
