      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. Best Science Fiction Movies

    The Day The Earth Stood Still - I remember this as one of the very first movies I saw. Still with me today, decades later. Fantastic stuff!!!!
  2. VC17 Alternative

    I have been using the West product for 3 or 4 years. I see no difference between it and VC as far as application, performance, etc. We take care of the bottom of the boat (J/30) and clean multiple times during the season. I have every intention of doing it again this season.
  3. 50 Years Today

    50 years ago, I was a kid growing up in So Cal and I clearly remember the fires in the foothills near our home. A sight and a smell that you will never forget. The folks who run into that to save people and homes are a special breed. Like Lightinn said - MUCH RESPECT!!
  4. Arnie

    A true loss. Golf and sailing may not mix well but what an icon. We are all a little less complete tonight. Rest in peace Mr. Palmer.
  5. Low Testosterone Levels

    Been on the gel for about 2 1/2 years. No side effects / reactions at all. Clearly has made a positive difference in how I feel (for a mid 60's guy). All cardio vascular signs are as before I started the gel.
  6. extremely evil Great Lake wave

    I have sailed Michigan for nearly 20 years. Queens, Macs, even a couple of Hooks as well as many hundreds of club events as well as just out sailing. Some of the most wonderful waters to sail on but can also be some of the craziest water in the world. Love it and can't wait for spring to get here.
  7. Random PicThread

    An excellent day to sit by the fire with a comforting beverage watching videos of others out in the weather.
  8. Random PicThread

    Reminds me of Moonrise - Hernadez, NM but not quite as striking. Regardless, quite a landscape to live in. Harsh yet stunning.
  9. Joke

    Dude this had me laughing out loud. Every bit is correct. :P/> Our bowman is a minister (seriously). This is on its way to him in 30 seconds!!
  10. Random PicThread

    Drove it in August. It's at the extreme north end of Door County at Death's Door. While the telephoto lens does compress the view, it really is very much like this. When we went up there, a group of Mazda Miata sports cars were running back and forth on this stretch over and over. Hope they didn't have too many adult beverages the night before.
  11. arcpix,

    saw your post from a few years back about repowering. I'm in Madison and have a 26' boat with an old OMC saildrive. I was talking to Southwind in MKE about repowering with a new Yanmar, but size was a concern and they didn't seem too interested in helping me oput with another option (aside from selling me a used boat or an outboard). What did you end up goinig with?
