      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. what is it?

    Tripp and Morgan had much in common. The Tripp Columbia 43, hull #1 had the Columbia 50 deck on it with that same cabin style. I own hull #4 for the last 40 years. Lots of info on the 43 here:http://hagothlog.blogspot.com/2012/07/columbia-43-little-history.html Tripp did some interesting work with Dolf Le Comte back in the days like the ALC 35 MK 2, a lovely boat in my opinion. http://sailboatdata.com/viewrecord.asp?class_id=1647 They build them in the Netherlands and I believe that's where Koopmans got his style from.

  10. I'm in Aruba and we have dodged the bullet here. Winds from the SW topped out at 37kts (we get more with the sun out in the dry season) and fairly light drizzles as the hurricane passed us. Everyone was surfing the past 3 days and last night, some thunder and lightning passed overhead as the bands of the storm pulled shit off Colombia and Venezuela. It's been overcast all day today and winds are slowly shifting back to normal.

  13. Uglyboat Admiration Society Hang Out

    Between my broken French and his broken English, I understood that the problem was not having trampolines with a solid deck almost to the bows causing brige deck slamming in a chop. When I asked if it worked, his body language seem to tell me his effort was in vain. But it was clear to me he did not do it to improve speed.

    I had a bief chat with the skipper this morning. This moodification was an attempt to reduce brige deck slamming.

    Me too Bob, just caught that on the way home from work. A French cruiser in our anchorage with a Prout Snowgoose 37 that seems to have swallowed some ugly beach cat.
