      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. If they put another rudder/canard on the bow to tighten the turn................ would the front fall off?
  2. What's someone doing on the bow of a 24' yacht at a start anyway. 24' and you can't see that far? Time to give it up bloke
  3. ...... and the bowman isn't positioning the boat in the line up either
  4. https://www.google.co.nz/search?q=Australian+map+with+sharks+snakes+spiders&client=firefox-b&dcr=0&tbm=isch&imgil=k_trnHEA16pfzM%3A%3BM8vzMEuPJv-siM%3Bhttp%253A%252F%252Fwww.ournakedaustralia.com.au%252Fbug-off-annoying-insects%252F&source=iu&pf=m&fir=k_trnHEA16pfzM%3A%2CM8vzMEuPJv-siM%2C_&usg=__biU_qBPxPYTWRIV-EKPa3WmtcSo%3D&biw=1173&bih=616&ved=0ahUKEwi08sux4o3WAhXJULwKHZU5ClkQyjcIMQ&ei=QnOuWbTJBMmh8QWV86jIBQ#imgrc=qJyXMNY5KNjATM: You mean here?
  5. Years ago we had a pretty regular core of crew on a Ross 40. Couple of years after it sold I was chatting to a bloke in the yacht club who reckoned he was keen to sail with us but thought we were a 'closed shop'. I was pretty surprised, told him we were always looking for guys who'd turn up regularly and get stuck in. All he had to do was open his mouth and ask. Having said that you're highly unlikely to crack in to the likes of the A Div/ TP52 guys. Rock stars only...... Will send you a pm......
  6. Already knew that. My mate told me. Right after he told me Michelle Obama's actually a bloke and the kids were hired for occasions. This is in rural New Zealand........
  7. He's Dogged. You gotta give him that
  8. Chuck 'em out cos they're Kiwis? Fuck me you lot have issyews.......
  9. So another whole set of human skills gets sent to the scrap heap? Just what we need
  10. FAKE!!!!! It's got 'gentlemen' and "Australia" on the same page .......
  11. Most Japanese cars here run the indicator on the rhs of the wheel whereas European vehicles tend to be on the left. Makes life interesting Drivers here tend to stick out their middle finger, metaphorically and possibly literally, as they turn the wheel. Never mind the 3 second rule.......
  12. Don't worry. It's probably Hillary
  13. Round here that could well mean "You bastard. That looks awesome and I wish I had one" ......... or he just hates you.....
  14. Did the 10th one ('87). Long race was a pita but the rest was quite fun
