      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. Vineyard Race 2016

    Overall a good race despite the drifting the whole outbound length of the sound. Did anybody else hear the idiots on the radio on Friday evening? "There's literally a million sailboats out here", "At least I passed my CDL on the first try" holy crap there are some dumbasses out there.

    Surfing for a new ride I ran across this http://www.salvagebid.com/233085325-1998-carroll-marine-40/ Looks like the rig is trashed there is some mast on the deck and some below. What happened to her? Anyone know? $125 is the opening bid, a rounding error on what it would cost to get her back in shape.

    OK let me begin by saying I'm not usually a sappy sentimentalist, I tend to enjoy gallows humor more than most and have for most of my life had a very difficult time saying anything to the bereaved but the wrong thing. This time it is easy: MainsheetgirlSister, I have little doubt that if any of the rest of us were to follow your sister to the great regatta in the sky, even half of the responses we have had already here would be a glowing endorsement to a life well lived, by measure of the impact she has had on other people. You should be very proud of your little sister, your early bad influence may have been anything but. Bob P.: Congrats, I'm sure you will be a wonderful grand father, joy will come. Mulling over the loss and grief thing this evening, it occurred to me that the loss of a "fully developed" person (for lack of a better term) can produce more grief than the birth of a (blank slate) produces happiness. But the happiness and joy grows with the child and before long you are in love with the little person. Buddhist theology handles this issue nicely but you need to be a 10th degree black belt Dali lama not to feel the pain. Another of my 2 cents worth during a highly inflationary period.

    Gutted, condolences to Connolly family and to all MSG's friends both physical and virtual. I'd like to think we all helped her ride out a little more comfrotable. Fair winds Catherine, save a spot on the rail for me up there.

    Dear God, the one who gives us the shift when it looks like we aren't laying the mark, you know what to do! Bless you Cathrine hang in there!
  11. Sailing Anarchists Affected by Cancer

    Just read this thread. MSG I'm gutted hearing the news. I seem to know more people getting cancer these days than tatoos. I can't give much advice other than to say attitude makes a huge difference. I enjoyed your tale of woe from the Down the Bay Race, and felt your pain on that one, I can't imagine how you feel now. I wish you the best for tomorrow. Regroup after surgery then HTFU. Another anarchist pulling for you. Denis

    Some of my friends chipped in and got me a sweater for Christmas. I'd have preferred a moaner or a screamer, but the sweater was OK.
  14. Joke

    Forgive me if previously posted. The following is supposedly an actual question given on a University of Washington chemistry mid-term. The answer by one student was so "profound" that the professor shared it with colleagues, via the Internet, which is, of course, why we now have the pleasure of enjoying it as well. Bonus Question: Is Hell exothermic (gives off heat) or endothermic (absorbs heat)? Most of the students wrote proofs of their beliefs using Boyle's Law (gas cools when it expands and heats when it is compressed) or some variant. One student, however, wrote the following: First, we need to know how the mass of Hell is changing in time. So we need to know the rate at which souls are moving into Hell and the rate at which they are leaving. I think that we can safely assume that once a soul gets to Hell, it will not leave. Therefore, no souls are leaving. As for how many souls are entering Hell, let's look at the different Religions that exist in the world today. Most of these religions state that if you are not a member of their religion, you will go to Hell. Since there is more than one of these religions and since people do not belong to more than one religion, we can project that all souls go to Hell. With birth and death rates as they are, we can expect the number of souls in Hell to increase exponentially. Now, we look at the rate of change of the volume in Hell because Boyle's Law states that in order for the temperature and pressure in Hell to stay the same, the volume of Hell has to expand proportionately as souls are added. This gives two possibilities: 1. If Hell is expanding at a slower rate than the rate at which souls enter Hell, then the temperature and pressure in Hell will increase until all Hell breaks loose. 2. If Hell is expanding at a rate faster than the increase of souls in Hell, then the temperature and pressure will drop until Hell freezes over. So which is it? If we accept the postulate given to me by Teresa during my Freshman year that, "it will be a cold day in Hell before I go out with you", and take into account the fact that I went out with her last night, then number 2 must be true, and thus I am sure that Hell is exothermic and has already frozen over. The corollary of this theory is that since Hell has frozen over, it follows that it is not accepting any more souls and is therefore, extinct . . . leaving only Heaven, thereby proving the existence of a divine being which explains why, last night, Teresa kept shouting "Oh my God." THIS STUDENT RECEIVED THE ONLY "A."

    I beleive that Legacy and her sistership C-MOS were the next iteration of Soverells Locura 43' design, built in Trinidad by Formula 111. RIP Douggy.
