      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. Quality of construction and attention to detail

    What particular aspects of the Rhodes 22, M32, and Morris do you believe exhibit the quality of contruction and attention to detail to set them apart from other current production designs?
  2. Quality of construction and attention to detail

    Hinckley does not currently produce any sailboats in this range
  3. Of all the fiberglass sailboats between 20 and 40 ft LOA currently in production, which do you believe reflect the very best in terms of quality of construction and attention to detail?
  4. New J designs

    There is the redesign of the J/97 to the J/97E [see under topics] and some hints about a 36 footer in the future.
  5. J/88

    #25 is having her topsides painted in Bristol, RI this week, and orders are up to at least 67 in the US.
  6. J/88

    With regard to stiffness, has anyone single-handed an 88 yet, and, if so, under what conditions? As for the backstay, sounds like re-blocking and offsets might be in order.
  7. New J designs

    I'm thinking an offshore IRC boat [race/long weekender] with a 111 style cockpit, say a J/102 or 110 and a 50 footer.
  8. New J designs

    Two new "big boat" designs are evidently in the works at J/boats. Let the squall line of speculation begin!
  9. J/88

    Doing the exact same thing on our 88. 3 T41's on a scanstrut mast pod and a Zeus 2 on a swing bracket. Just went to CCF Composites in Bristol to see our hull #25.
  10. J/88

    Will you store your 88 on the trailer or jackstands for the winter?
  11. J/88

    On a slightly different subject, what is the cost of a Triad trailer for an 88?
  12. J/88

    Looks terrific! Congratulations also.
  13. J/88

    For our electronics we're going with the 9" Zeus 2 on a companionway bracket with one T41 next to the starboard port and 3 T41s on a scanstrut mast pod.
  14. J/88

    This all seems to lead to the question that with everything else being equal, would a J/88 with a hanked jib and horizontal battens consistently beat an 88 with a furler and vertical battens under all wind conditions? And if so, why?
  15. J/88

    Just a note: J/88 awarded "Yachts and Yachting"'s best performance yacht under 40ft for 2014
