      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. J/100 tuning #'s

    I see PHRF-LO has one at 77. Which PHRF region are you in wafi? What info are you looking for that they won't give you?
  2. J/100 Shoal Draft

    Great summary captnjoe - thanks!
  3. J/100 Shoal Draft

    There are quite a few standard draft J/100s on the used market, and I see that J-Boats advertises a shoal draft too. Has anyone seen one of those in the wild, or know anything about that particular keel? I know that shoal draft is never the best performance choice!
  4. New J designs

    Shrinking the J/100 down to 27' and somehow getting the price under $120K would certainly make life tough for the Alerions and the Catalina 275 Sport.
  5. Catalina 275 Sport - New Boat for 2014

    Codybear - are you planning to race the new boat in your local PHRF fleet? Have you inquired about a handicap yet?
  6. Catalina 275 Sport - New Boat for 2014

    Wouldn't it be slower than an Alerion 28? The Alerion has the same handicap as a J/24, but weighs less than the C275 (4400 vs 5000) and has more sail area (352 sq ft vs. 336), at least based on a quick check of sailboatdata.com.
  7. Catalina 275 Sport - New Boat for 2014

    Has anybody pinned down the draft for the fin keel? Early reports said 4' 6", I think. The Catalina site now says 5' 0" http://www.catalinayachts.com/yachts.cfm?act=model&id=301&sid=2&link=spec. But here's a site saying 4' 5" http://swansyachtsales.com/new-yachts/catalina-275/.
