      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.

    The Greens have a new leadership now and being part of the government might help them to think more rationally.
  2. AC36 Auckland NZ

    I think you will find that every proposal will have someone who objects to it but it seems to me that the West of the harbour area does not have any other use.
  3. AC36 Auckland NZ

    That's why they write new legislation for the AC and have a minister for the AC .. to cut through the red tape.

    Just build a breakwater the same as Westhaven Marina.
  5. AC36 Auckland NZ

    Does anyone know if the area to the West of the harbour bridge has been considered. It is within walking distance of the RNZYS and there appears to be unlimited room for reclamation without interfering with the functions of the harbour ..

  7. shroud fairings??

    It was to stop the rigging from whistling .. it was so loud on Artemis in the early racing the TV audience could not hear the microphone output.
  8. Ancient Polynesian Navigation

  9. Team NZ

    While I agree that Ashby did a great job of trimming his roll as skipper was more important when the boat was being conceived and developed before the racing even started. Burling did a great job as helmsman and tactician when the racing for the AC started. Without Ashby ETNZ may have finished up with a boat that was no better than the rest.
  10. Teams?

    P$B does not speak English .. do you speak Italian?
  11. Teams?

    Both Luna Rosa and GD deny that they had an agreement .. they agree that they shared ideas as far back as AC34 but that does not mean an agreement. As for Cammas how would he know what has been agreed between the challenger and the defender that has not been made public.

    Perhaps the copyright holder was changed so that the material had to be taken down so that it could be restored by the new copyright holder?
  13. Flying Dutchman Fix Up

  14. The Next Boat-----2020

    I think you are fixating on one factor without considering the overall implications. If we look at ETNZ's successful AC50 we find that it had longer "L" foils than the others and you would expect that would result in a reduced RM .. but the reduced RM was offset by the reduced drag of their foils. It seems that there comes a point where the RM is less important than the drag.

    Sorry about that .. you are right .. Labour came to government in Dec 1,999 so they were there for the defense.
