      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. Nacra 5.0 easily smokes an Astus 16.5 Sport.

    A well sailed H16 would smoke your sorry ass as would most 16 foot boats. Do you even know how to push that thing hard. Pathetic childish post. Did you bully the younger smaller kids at school.

    Whilst a great little moderately performing Tri, it is still very heavy for a 20 footer compared with your 20 foot cats. It is nowhere near as quick as the high performance off the beach cats that run flatter kites. Like all smallish performance / cruising Tris it requires a kite that is deeper than a code zero to get it downwind with decent VMG. We have played with different cut kites on 18's and found we lost depth and VMG with very flat kites and the skiff was a little more nosey. Sheeting loads were not noticeably different.

    This gentleman seams to have a little big more experience in this field than you Wayne however I guess you are the SA multihull expert. why don't you get off your keyboard and sail a few different type of boats before digging your hole further.
  4. Corsair Pulse 600

    I have raced apparent wind boats from keel boats, large multis, skiffs and fast off the beach cats. I would put money on it what I have done would make you look like a novice. As apparent wind boats become quicker, sails are cut flatter. If you just throw a code zero on an apparent wind boat at the slower end of the range, don't expect it to be quick.
  5. Corsair Pulse 600

    You are nuts if you thing a flat kite has more load than a full one. Have you ever sailed a skiff like a 49er or I14 that has a large full kite and travel downwind slower than a cat? The loads are a lot higher. And your comment that Corsair was catering for less able sailors by increasing the size of the kite and main as well as making them fuller is the craziest thing I have heard come out of anyone's mouth hear other then DL

    Wayne, a flat kite the same size as a fuller kite is not necessarily quicker. You have to look at the full package. This is not a beach cat. It is a lot heavier and slower. It needs the grunt to get it downwind. Also, a larger fuller kite requires harder work so I don't know what you were smoking when you made the 'less able' comment. Likewise with a larger main.
  7. Corsair Pulse 600

    Lol. Wayne you twat, you really do have no f'n idea. The larger fuller spinnaker is to get this bus downwind harder and faster with better VMG.
  8. sex tourism

    Let's face it, most of you guys have darker fantasies that need fulfilling yet are to shy to admit it. You know if you take home a nice Thai lady, you can still roll her over and pretend it is a guy.
  9. sex tourism

    One of my ex work colleges use to travel over to Pattaya yearly and came back with a lot of stories. As he said, once you are over there the motels and food are cheap, the women even cheaper. You can go through a lot of women in a short period without blowing too much money. And if you are into your non standard, that is available to.

    Implement it, succeed and live a happy life Why don't you try it wUS of A

    Then implement the Australian model, it has proven to be successful. You really don't need to reinvent the wheel.
  13. In Wake of Orlando Dems Plot to Disarm Americans

    No, we do it because you are so easy to wind up. Do you really think we actually give a shit about you. Whoops, I let the cat out of the bag

    With regards to the number of illegal guns Australian police are ceasing. I take confort in knowing without these laws and their actions, these guns would be legally allowed and used on the streets. Australia is a better place for it. Serious criminals may find a way to import guns however the average Joe thug is very unlikely. You won't see the wanna be tough guy on the street popping caps in people's asses here like you would in the US. The serious criminals are likely to be more stable and not go on a mass shooting rampage.
  15. In Wake of Orlando Dems Plot to Disarm Americans

    Holy crap, that can't be right. Could it have been a success in Australia? Where are the US citizens rights to live in a county where they are not scared of gun violence. They are confident they can send their kids to school and they will not be shot at. Why are these rights ignored by the 2A.
