      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. Chicago-Mac/Meridian X MOB Recovery

    these were brand new lights, with brand new batteries...
  2. Chicago-Mac/Meridian X MOB Recovery

    Just to reiterate, these weren't the lights included in the vests. The running recommendation is a strobe, not a solid light. As well as secondary flashlight.

    This is a neat little widget just for sounding an alarm indicating an AIS MOB detection. http://oceansignal.com/products/ais-alarm/
  4. The Jobson Retort

    From the picture, it looks like there was already a shitfight for water going on... If they were truly coming from behind, Courageous shouldn't have gone in there in the first place.
  5. 2016 Olympic Games

    any commentary on the 49er team from denmark in race 1 today? In the lead and sailed right the hell on past the wrong mark... looks like they thought the start line was teh finish line...
  6. No commemetary on nacra class?

    Pretty pathetic NBC can't get their shit together after an entire week. Hour upon hour of dead silence...
  7. How to watch the Olympics

    watching the RS:X races at the moment... what are they doing when they're pulling what looks like the uphaul line upwind? is that the downhaul re-routed or are they moving the rig around with the uphaul line?
  8. Pocket Hose from FP

    biggest pieces of crap ever... had one explode and send shrapnel at my throat...
  9. Dear Newport Bermuda Organizing Authority...

    boats have to meet certain requirements to enter the bermuda race nobody is saying that the boats which don't meet those requirements are not capable of doing an offshore race. I get it that the rules are the rules. I mean it more in the terms that a mini is a very good example of a boat worthy of going offshore; if it doesn't measure in perhaps the rule needs to be re-examined.
  10. Dear Newport Bermuda Organizing Authority...

    How in the actual fuck is a Pogo2 deemed not capable of doing any offshore race?

    4. halyard locks NEVER work the way you want them to, the way they were designed or the way somebody got them to work once... They're right up there with printers and copy machines in the "spawn of Satan" rankings. 5. IMO and I'm sure someone will disagree, but the key to a string drop is to get the bottom of the kite starting to fly up and away from the boat (it will make people look up and think "we're fucked")... tack and sheet off to let the kite work up a bit (takedown line pre-tensioned) then go like hell on the takedown line as the halyard is blown. The whole kite folds in on itself and just disappears. An audible count to get everyone going at the right time does worlds as well. The time gaps are still a 1 or two count max between moves. The location of the patches is also rather important... ttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JwacJBxtQ8o

    I am guessing that, since the Portlanders have articulating prods, he means fully artic'ed to stbd and then fully artic'ed to port....hence a wag like a pup tail. exactamundo...
