      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. Mark Fore and Strike was simply obliterated in Bay Head, along with almost everything else. That shop was about 100 years old.
  2. Oh my God, Smack, I had no idea. But that is the all around quality thing to do--carrying on with a dream you all shared. You are leading by example for your kids.
  3. Isn't that a prindle? Somethingdifferent about those bows. Not 16ish
  4. Haha! I used to drive a 504, and later a 405. I can't remember if they imported the 505. But they did import the 604. That was a big car.
  5. Fireball in France--cool! To be fair, The French Caneton Association came to him and liked his Coronet, and wondered if he'd make one like that but 5 meters....So I guess it is more a French-Anglais team-building exercise :-)
  6. Well one of two. You forgot the 505 ;-)
  7. LOL I may not be mad, but I am certainly animated--on and off my canoe :-)
  8. And there are still some old Frenchmen in that town who remember Uffa's visit! Read about it in Sail & Power, Part I, Chapter 1, "To Brittany in Brynhild" Uffa Fox, Charles Scribners sons, 1937. She was: 20 LOA, 4.0 Beam, weight 650 lbs. Sail area only 130! Uffa was disappointed that she only clocked in at 15 knots. He was sure he was going to beat WAKE's record of 16.4 knots. She had 50 lbs of lead in her centerboard. Even though Uffa had criticized that requirement in the 14 rules, he seemed unable to get away from it. But a 20 foot canoe cruising, well, I can see the thinking--unless the board is up or goes up!
  9. One sidewas wrong. He got flicked.
  10. Dude, if you think *anything* BP ever said comes even remotely close, I really wonder. And who started it all? BS. My god the number of attacks against both Bob's designs and his character were innumerable. Bob saying things along the lines of "you are a little man" are hardly something to see as "bullying." My god. BS follows Bob around like a slighted puppy. Bob does not follow Brent around. Brent even had the temerity to comment on the Carbon Fiber Cutters thread. As if he has anything useful to say there (he didn't. Rather, he pretended that Bob copied him in some details. You know, like outboard rudders, bulwarks, and shrouds terminating in bulwarks. ) I came to discover this crap less than a year ago. After going through it it became obvious: BS was and is a complete and utter troublemaker of the highest order. He lies, falsifies, uses people's deaths to justify his position and attempt to strengthen his steel boat narrative, he creates complete utter libelous attacks on professional designers, the list goes on. Sure, you might think it unseemly or something for BP to defend himself. But my god man, have you tried on his shoes?
  11. I asked that very question while standing on that doxk a few weeks ago.
  12. I thought the uniqornbfarts were funnybut yeah the gender oart was a non sequitur
  13. I think I've had nice xonversations witg Pano somwhere on sa. But what the fuck. Pano: did you read what BS wrote? Talk avout mugging. He attempted character assasination. You seem to be discounring gis vwhavior. Bs is called a fool. So what. Htfu. Not same as what he xalked bp
  14. Exaxtly. Exhibit 1 would be me. I didn't go in for ad hominems but Brent bothrefused to answer questions and also said supid things in response. Yet Proa put me on ignore for being critical. Haha.
  15. Proa do you still have me on ignore?
