      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.

    Sailing on the Chesapeake. Hopefully further soon..
  1. Maybe the wives do..
  2. To each his own - I agree w/the no or minimalist interior, but, that little boat isn't much bigger than your Hobie, and looks solid enough and has lines pretty enough that I think she'd be worth saving. That said - I do have an admitted savior complex for old boats, bikes, cars and tools. That perfect one that TAK posted does show the potential, but the example in the ad looks to me like a hull with probable problems. The hull is the cheap part of a boat. I think it's priced a bit high at $300. "Worth it" is certainly in the eye of the beholder, unless we're talking market value. No way could that be fixed up and sold for profit, but someone could fix it for personal use. It wouldn't make a lot of economic sense, but then, pleasure boat ownership never really does. Would generally agree about the "profit" with the exception to those with the tools and talents.. Have seen a couple little cape dorys rehabed by a group here in Maryland that do it as a business and sell them at the Anap boat show.
  3. That seems like a VERY doable project - you could make a birdsmouth spar for the missing mast - new rigging and you'd have a neat little gunkholer for probably less than $1500. I bet you'd blow more than $1500 on any rig that didn't involve clothesline hardware & blue tarp. OTOH it's a pretty little boat. I would not be inclined to criticise anybody for going the distance with it. FB- Doug Don't know what you would pay but here is a mast and boom / rigging that I doubt would be more than $300.. http://delaware.craigslist.org/boa/3954949091.html I am sure you could pay a lot more than 1500 to get to this but...
  4. Not a mock but looks like a interesting offer for someone looking for a gentlemens day sailor.. Sailmaster 22 1969 sailboat - project boat - $300 (Weems Creek) http://annapolis.craigslist.org/boa/3943030985.html
