      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. "Dis is Sayula"

    Back when Watts Sails became Sobstad I called the new company "Wattstad" I'll look through my pile of old sails and sail bags for any Watts labels. Blackbeard

    Why named a companionway? Because one of your effing companions is always in the way. Blackbeard
  3. Basal Cell Carcinoma

    I had MoHs surgery on my nose several years ago to remove BCC. Nothing horrific but I do recommend taking advantage of some pain management both before and after the MoHs. Having my face skin pulled over to cover the removed tissue triggered a fight or flight response which could have been avoided with valium or something similar before the surgery. During a post op exam the nurse was surprised it was not offered. Now the scar is not that visible but there is a slight color change and I do have some misplaced hairs growing there. Blackbeard

    Always thought the 43 was the prettiest production boat C&C ever built. Hey Titmouse......the 43 was built at the Custom Shop....it was not a production boat....they were all different.....glad to help. The hulls were different?. The June 1971 magazine article/review stated: The accommodations of the "43" may be varied within the standard hull and deck moldings. From the September 1971 magazine C&C advertisement ...'Limited editions' (with custom designed and custom built interiors) and "one off" yachts... "Built by Bruckmann". Our 1970 C&C 43 is hull #1 of the Limited Edition series 43's. Launched as "Arieto", the interior is significantly different than the other 43's I have seen or seen pictures off. The hull, deck, and keel are similar to the early 43's however I have read that some of the 43's completed in the late 70's (maybe hull # 14 or 15) had updated keels and rudders. In the mid 70's hulls # 1 and 2 ("Arieto" and "Destination") had their sterns bobbed (looked like a C&C 39 stern) to help with the IOR ratings. To my knowledge these were the only two hulls bobbed. Hull #2 has since had its stern mostly restored with the addition of a swim step. Hull #1 is still bobbed. There are a few full custom 43's with different hull and deck designs. There is also a Landfall 43 that was designed and built for longer range cruising. Some of these newer 43's were built in the 80's. Blackbeard

    Here are the "then and now" photos for the 1971 C&C 43 Arieto (then Phantom, Esta Es, & Calypso): 1971 Arieto, maybe at SORC 1971 or 1972: 1980's as Phantom on the great lakes (later as Esta Es): 2009 as Calypso on Puget Sound:
  6. I'd love to see any photos of your boat that you have,if you don't mind of course.
