      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. 30-35 ft sprit boat - up to 75K

    PM NYBOZO1. He had a Columbia 32 racing the 40 footers (Farr 40 / J120s) in Buffalo. The Columbia 32 couldn't hang with the big boys on 2 mile weather legs. It didn't end well and the boat was sold. I believe it is in CT now. There was at least a thread or two about it.

    Take it to PA. We don't like you type here.
  3. Force 5

    A friend of mine offered me $1,000.00 for it to become a beach boat for his kids. I thought the offer was a little low, but then again I have no idea of what it's value is. I'd hate like heck to see this boat get destroyed by a bunch of teenagers. In my time my friends and I destroyed a couple of Hobie 16's, Laser's, and a 14' motor boat with a 25HP Evinrude hanging off the stern. I'd hate like heck to see this boat get beat on by a bunch of teenagers.
  4. Force 5

    I'm the second owner of a 1978 Force 5. It's in really nice shape. The first owner had it for 20+ years and rarelyused it. I've owned it for 5 years and have maybe sailed it 10 times. The sail is still crisp. I liken it to a barnyard find. Are there are Force 5 enthusiasts left? It's nice enough to sell to someone who would appreciate it. If there aren't, I'll put it on Craiglist. What do you think? The boat is located in Western New York.
  5. What kind of rum?

    You can get Mt Gay anytime, anywhere. Try something different. I'm a big Plantation Rum fan. Used to get a 1.75L for $19.99. Now it's more expensive then Mt Gay Eclipse. Kaniche bills itself as an artisanal rum. I remember reading sometime ago that there is a Plantation Rum and Ferrand Cognac connection. Give it a whirl.

    Catherine I'm not very good with the written word. Hopefully my Jesuit and Franciscan education will kick in. There's a lot of static (distractions) around us at all times. You're compelling story humanizes who and what you are and brings us all down to Earth. Thank you for being you and bringing us all together. Your story is about love of life. Stay strong and keep up the good work. You are in my prayers. Joe
