      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.

    Apologies, when I’m busy and have to play catch up, I answer and respond as I see some of them, not all, just the ones that require a response.

    You’re a marketing dream come true.

    Remember which idiot you’re addressing, you’re expecting way too much from him.
  8. I’ll scroll back up and read the article, but as they probably have at least 2-3 crew on the foredeck, they definitely don’t have enough halyards and or run the risk of an almighty clusterfuck with a twist. Also means you have at least 2 people in the pit tied up monitoring the halyard tension as they go forward.
  9. From the current report, mostly dinghy sailing. Let’s see the reports as they come out before jumping to conclusions.
  10. Never heard of that theory before! And I really don’t like the idea of being hung of a halyard to leeward if I get washed over the side. Being towed by a halyard and The boat coming back upright and smashing into the top sides is distinctly unappealing!! Let alone the idea of working with a halyard whipping my head and neck!! A bowman harness and a short strop in combination with a regular setup would be better.

    Exactly my point.
  12. Next up, Bill Clinton!

    Giving blowjobs??

    Struggling to understand why anyone would use coremat? It’s about the poorest core material available and generally only used in polyester lay ups.

    A really wet game, It was like wrestling a greased pig, we got lucky and had a couple of ref decisions go our way...... anyway, enough of making excuses. You lost
