      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. Un-Sound Boatworks...

    I have had Great Luck with Sound Boatworks. I got the Very Best Deal on a pair of High Waisted Gill Scallopetts last year They were Last Years Model (like I care) and usually are $350 but they were on Sale for $125. I even got them Embrided. They got them Done right and mailed to me in a timely fashion. I ordered a Musto Smock, Great price and mailed to me. I have ordered dozens of things from them. From Crew Swag Shirts, vests to lines for a Sunfish. They always have mailed all my stuff on Time.

    Good looking Boat....sad to see ending like this. Boat Building sounds worse than Starting any Restaurant Bus.....has anyone (other tham J Boats) ever made any $$ ??
  3. J/111 Goes Sailing...

    Are you kidding ?? Who in their right mind Buys a "Race" boat and wants a fuckin sunprotection dragging in the breeze ??? If you want that go buy an Island Packard.....this is being marketed as a Race Boat so everything is light and spartan below. There is gonna be NO netting the whole boat for Children.....the only Child allowed on this boat is the owner after he losses in IRC....

    I don't own a J-Boat but have always liked most of their boats. They are mostly very well built and designed Race boats. Go to any major Regatta and J-Boats has built more than any other builder there......1 million China man cannot be wrong (or something like that). Yes they are more $$ than similar boats but you get what you pay for. In the last few years they have been developing their boats more Racer than cruiser. As for the IRC number only time/racing will tell if it can perform to the number.....my guess will be 1.129 and the PHRF number of an ID35 of 36 is gonna be REAL tough. I'd bet the ole Mumm 36 would win in an upwind leg (only to be creemed downhill). I would think a number around 56 would be fair. PHRF can give real gifts and impossible handicaps to J-Boats depending on where the boats start out I like l look of the boat but HATE, yes HATE the Wheel......totally idiodic to have one on a small race boat. This is one of the BIG points that I really don't like about J-Boat's......they try an put a wheel on almost every boat. I know why they do it but a true race boat should NOT have one at this size. Good post Newbie....now show us your Wife's TiT's......laugh!!!
  5. Hey man,

    Thanks for the support, you are 110% correct all I am looking to do is sail with my dad on some nice days.

    I would take another 3 sec hit if he would sail all the time he just wants to come out about 6 times a year or when his arthristis doesn't bother him.
