      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. What a world-class fool.
  2. +1 I much prefer most animals to most people, but that could just be me.
  3. I'm guessing the folks who did those sails had a pretty good reason for doing that. This isn't their first rodeo. It looks to me like it will keep the boom level to slightly raised when the reef is in.
  4. I think you're correct on that. Our marina would lose their "Clean Marina" status if they get caught letting people put non-accepted paint on their boat. https://georgiastrait.org/work/cleanmarinebc/marinas/
  5. That's who his handlers supplied?
  6. Whatever the newest stuff is (Biolux?), it's still not legal here.
  7. I had worse fouling this year than any other year I can remember. I have used Micron CSC for a long time, but this year's growth makes me think of trying something else. I put a fresh coat on last month so we'll see how it does. We are limited here in Canada, not only are a lot of paints not available here (like Trinidad and Micron 66 and anything else with Irgarol), our marina will not allow non-Canadian-approved paint to be applied.
  8. The beatings will continue until morale improves...
  9. That was ruled out months ago, as was Curly, Larry, Moe and Shemp. I would go with Vivaldi, myself. Today. Tomorrow it might be The Supremes.
  10. "It's a good thing I'm wearing Depends."
  11. This crowd couldn't run a brothel in a mining town. What a buncha useless dorks.
  12. We were anchored in Melanie Cove (Prideaux Haven) when a flotilla of cruise'nlearners came in with five or six identical Beneteaux and proceeded to anchor in a circle, with much crew consternation and well-honed incompetence. They all dropped about 100 feet of chain on top of their anchors in 20 feet of water and didn't back up to set worth shit. I know exactly how much experience those folks had. You have mad skillz.
  13. The bastards went and made them deliberately smaller so LP's wouldn't fit.
  14. Interesting that the RNC is paying the legal bills for Trump Jr. That seems a real stretch.
