      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. Twatwaffle, shitmuffin. We need to hear more from this guy! Other than a few new terms of endearment for my wife, I have gathered the following from this thread: A battle axed, wenchy, wrinkletit, twatwaffle from SWYC has a personal beef with a morally corrupt, "just for men blonde," drunkin dwarf, shitmuffin. This vendetta may have something to do with a Trump like, drunkin rank on the web, a hold my drink and watch this event during a drunkin stooper in Ensenada, or both. The parents of the year may or may not had their children present when said shitmuffin did something inappropriate, but completey expected, during some sort of tequila fueled meyhem in a bar in Mexico. Someone suddenly got concerned about their image and it getting "muddied," but totally oblvious to it being destroyed by years of poor decisions. Did I miss anything?
  2. I like going 26.54 knots
  3. Maybe Dickens was more like Nostradamus than we thought. This episolizes a day in the oval office. It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair...
  4. I'm not a huge fan of Trump, nor Clinton. This piece on the front page sound reeks of a glass jaw little girl who got picked on like a red headed step child. Very Chicken Little. The sky is falling!
  5. If is is anything like 2015, they will have more OD Hobie 33s than the number of boats at the J/109 NAs and almost as many as the J/105 NAs.
  6. ^ exactky what he said ^
  7. I heard there is a guy with a San Juan 24 looking for crew. I think his name is Rimas.
  8. The Mexican team that won the J/70 Worlds in 2016 mix and match sails, so I guess there is something new on that front.
  9. I tried a bunch of different boots and like the ZHIK. They are light, dry, and warm. For shoes, the Sperry GripX3 are great. They are light and designed well. The Sperry Seahiker Booties are a total POS. The zippers are weak ass junk and the soles delaminate from the uppers in about 4 months. I've had two pairs, same exact issues.
  10. I'm offended that he called us jocks.
  11. LOL, there is no such thing as BUDGET travel racing. That is a Unicorn.
  12. This site is going in the shitter. We are about 20 post into this and newb still hasn't posted a pic of his girlfriend's tits. Sad.
  13. Scot is about this tall
  14. Yes, lift it by the pad eyes on either side of the keel box. If the boat is empty it will be fairly balanced. If it is off a little you can run a lead from the lifting point to the bow or stern. To remove the keel, don't lower it out, lift the boat off of it. Be sure to protect the leading and trailing edge of the keel, and don't let the keel bell clapper in the keel box as you lift the boat.
  15. What about taking a pinehead main that is 3' or 4' too tall and having a sail maker convert it to a square top by removing the top few feet. Is that possible?
