      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.

    Mates were sailing 18's that year and had stocked up on XXXX. Bernie Powers was staying above them and saw this and lowered a bucket down full of Powers Bitter and told them to swap it with the XXXX, He then proceeded to poor it out over the edge of the balcony saying you can't drink that shit

    This is what they really want It is strongly recommended that a lifejacket be worn by each member of the crew at times such as, but not limited to: i. When alone on deck ii. When the true wind speed is 25 knots or above iii. When visibility is less than 1 nautical mile. iv. When below decks v. When leaving the house vi. When driving to the yacht club vii. When walking on a jetty viii. When taking a dump ix. When asleep in bed Note I have seen a laser sailor driving home still in his wetsuit and lifejacket

    A bit like the Australian Cricketer and WW2 Fighter pilot Keith Miller being asked if he felt pressure batting that day. "I'll tell you what pressure is. Pressure is a Messerschmitt up your arse. Playing cricket is not."

    Surely the keel and rudder are 3d machined female moulds. Should be 100% accurate irrespective of where they are made.
