      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. I am trying to play by the rules and it was a good deal. See you LCSC in august big fleet anticipated. RL
  2. Weta anarchy

    I think the traveller system is ok, but now because the sheet position is behind the end of the tiller you have to cross over the main sheet rope. Not like a laser where the sheet is lead forward on the boom to the forward cockpit. Only a problem in heavy winds when you have to work the sheet. My 2 bobs worth.
  3. You really can't go past the weta for sheer fun and convenience

  5. GoPro mount for weta

    Hi all I have seen the GoPro training footage using a long stick off stern, has anyone tried the RAM fittings, ball joints etc, thinking of attaching a shorter one to the tiller . Clamp type with extenders on tiller or back beam, height may be an issue. Cheers

    That's BS if anything changed o/n at Garry's they would have noticed slingshot did not have SMS last year. I have given up sold the boat.

    the doughboys ran aground twice last year but still won PBH, figure that. I give shorty a good chance to win sportsboats.

    final decision sold, did you buy it?
  9. Bay to bay. Who is in?

    Not much interest, last year Sunday was a farce, raced from Sheridan flats to Duck Is., about 30% of normal distance. Then we all had to sail around the top of Woody Is to get home. Have you got plans for a mother ship because not having one makes it very hard for boats that can't go to the beach o/n. There would be more coming from our club if we could organise. RL
  10. Weta anarchy

    Hi all So I have mothballed my laser, and bought a weta, sailed last week for the first time and can't get over this putting the tiller extension out the back of the boat when tacking. Has anyone tried the laser method , bridle over the top of extension and forward of blocks? What could go wrong? Thanks

    Indecision , did that boat from NZ have carbon rig at the time?
  12. Looking for a Elliott 780 (AUS)

    Yes, advertised on boatpoint. Owner desperate to sell cheap. Sure it's heavy but a lot out there falling to pieces built too light there have been some full carbon builds but have not seen them in ads for some time. Rl
