      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.

  5. Help!....Time for new batteries

    https://www.vmaxtanks.com/ i have had good luck with these free shipping. There are sold on Amazon also. I have a AMG charger but follow none of the rules 4 years in, doing fine. There is an excellent battery thread on Cruising Anarchy that goes on and on a lot of big boat battery discussion. A lot of AMG haters out there they have good to me but my needs are limited. Good luck

  7. Down the Bay Race (Chesapeake)

    Race Qs GPS Mobile Tracking Hampton Yacht Club will be tracking the racing fleet Down the Bay using a GPS mobile tracking system. This year we are utilizing an application called RaceQs. Many of you may have heard about or used RaceQs, it is designed specifically for sailing and will allow replay of the race for each boat that participates.
  8. Down the Bay Race (Chesapeake)

    They are using raceQ not sure you can follow the race like the Gov Cup? I did not see a link. You may be able to follow a boat. Anyone know if you can track the fleet?
  9. Yes looks like a light weight Hunter, had no business out there. Fuck the tether that would be a ugly picture.
  10. My friend you are located just outside the Chesapeake, Hampton/Norfolk just up the road, Annapolis not that far away and a BUNCH of boats in between. There are people that come from all over the country to buy a boat in this area. If you can not find what you are looking for in this area?? If you are looking at a Tripp 26, still east coast maybe drag one up from FL. i say road trip if you are getting one you an drag home, Good luck.
  11. That is nice they want to take such a small boat down the ICW. There a lot of boats that will not see you. If and When a shrimp boat comes rolling up behind you. If you are not big on praying might be a good time to start. Good luck be safe that is long trip on little boat.
  12. I have to ask what as fucking 10 foot draft, sorry did not google

    BIG SALE! WM has a sale on a few colors of EZPoxy2. They have it discounted by $0.10 per gallon, weeeeeee! I sent them a quick email and asked if this was true and they replied; I see what you are seeing, yes these did go down a whopping ten cents a gallon. Wish it was more, when you see a price that ends in 88 cents that means that the item is clearance or discontinued Was good for chuckle, like 10 cents is change someone decision on a $142 gallon of paint.

    Dang, tough crowd, I take it no one has used Rust oleum topside paint. Who has made and sold more paint that Rust Oleum? http://www.rustoleum.com/product-catalog/consumer-brands/marine-coatings/ I agree prep is everything the hull is in pretty good shape, it was painted by a PO, I believe it was a roll and tip job. When doing the first sanding I found one area that may not have been tipped as well as it could have. If it had never been painted I may agree with some. Topside sides semi gloss, deck paint it maybe a bit much.
