      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. Age matters. $40k for a brand new well rounded 30fter, sign me up. $40k for 25yr old one....not so much.
  2. Great in light air, reasonable performance when the wind is up, able to sail 2up, and weekend cruising capability. What else you got in mind? Open to suggestions.
  3. Found that old T870 ad too, would have been a great boat. FYI, Not looking to ship to AUS, I want the boat for Vancouver.
  4. Great info guys, thanks! Just need to find one now, preferably in the PNW!
  5. Sailed SR21s years ago, fun boats, but definately not a sportsboat. You will get killed in a fleet of real sporties. FWIW - I have seen them turtle, but that was with a very inexperienced crew in 20+ with breaking waves. Was surprised to see it to be honest as the boat always seemed stable.
  6. I see guys asking just under $40k US for older ones, but that seems excessive for a 20+ year old boat with several year old sails and rigging. Are they actually selling at this price? Any insight into what these are actually being bought and sold for?
  7. I know guys are asking just under $40k for the older model ones, but this just seems very high for a 20+year old boat, with reasonable but certainly not new sails and rigging. Any insight what they actually sell for?
  8. Thats tons...no worries there at all.
  9. keep the commentary coming Richie!
  10. And Marissa Myer cant figure out why Yahoo sucks. Well guess she only makes $100million/yr, so we cant expect her to figure out how to do a live stream.
  11. they seemed pretty confident that they would be able to recover the boat. I hope that they do and I'm very curious to see what's broken/how and what the designers and builders have to say about it I am sure they can recover it. The boat is not taking on water, the water that is in the boat came in the back hatch when it rolled, so with the hatch closed now, the situation should at least be "stable".
  12. Interesting latest update says the boat was rolled by a rogue wave while hove to - resulting in taking on a ton of water and "sustained damage" to the rig, hence the abandoned boat. The report goes on to say the wave while large should not have capsized the boat - no kidding. Wonder if its a case of cutting out too much lead and too high of a reliance on the foils.
  13. I knew it was one of yours as soon as I saw it...love your work!
  14. Great pics, and Commanche looks the weapon for sure, but does anyone actually beleive that you can just splash a cutting edge 100ft super maxi a few weeks before a major offshore race, and beat WOXI? The WOXI crew knows that boat inside and out. The Commanche boys will need one hell of a steep learning curve to be competitive. Even the top professional programs need time to learn the boat.
  15. When did Spoffo confirm it was Rod and his son? I saw a photo that was sent supposedly to a forum member. I read how typing on a phone is so difficult. I see different spelling and punctuation errors. Some that should NEVER come up if a phone is being used to write stuff to the forum. How is it that there is no space after a period. How is it that the autocorrect is not kicking in? I am still a doubter. Although.. I must congratulate the person who sent the photo.. Pretty damn good. Easy to fake EXIF etc... and the background is so damn good. But the language and the errors that appear and are NOT consistent... quite a problem... Excellent attempt... but.. let us stop the BS. (for spelling errors, a good example is dont and don't. Both forms appear...) Go back and read - HR quoted a conversation he and Spoffo had, Spoffo confirmed it. He's real.
