      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.

  5. Boat upgrades/resell value

    Don't know what your talking about. Who said anything about selling a specfic boat? Although now that you mention it, the one in my signature is for sale. Haha.
  6. Boat upgrades/resell value

    Speaking of Blackbeat I came acrross this posting tthe other day. http://bellingham.craigslist.org/boa/5808368432.html
  7. Boat upgrades/resell value

    This boat was set up to do the pacific cup or the singlehanded transpac. Someone's unrealized dream. Pretty much turnkey but he wants $10 to $15k more then similar boats.
  8. Here is the senerio. Say a guy owns a boat that typically sells in mid $20s. This guy had a dream of racing to Hawaii and then doing some cruising. He spent 1000s on upgrades(over $20,000). New sails, electronics, barrier coat, solor, etc...but this was all 3 to 5 years ago. He ends up not doing the race and the boat has seen light use since then. My question is do these improvements increase the current value of the boat? Or is it still worth somewhere in the mid $20s. Your thoughts?

    Just came across this post. My Olson 29 rudder bearings were the same as the 25. Not the 30.
  13. Coolboats to admire

    It's been covered in this thread or the Uglyboat thread not too long ago. Tumblehome personified. Saw it in Olympia Saturday morning. Kind of cool but kind of ugly also.

    I have thought about taking a class but the only time I can get away is January or the first 3 weeks of February. Which location has better wind that time of year?
