      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.

    http://lakeeriewx.com/blog/chicago-mac-2017/ A fairly in depth write up on the heat burst phenomenon.

    If your mistress doesn't have the best set you're doing it wrong

    I think he is saying the tiller is damaged.

    Hopefully you didn't have the fish...

    His last transmission is utter gibberish.

    Cheers @last, happy to pass on anything I can.

    As far as I can tell there is no port at Namboutini.

    So I haven't remotely read this whole thread. In fact, when it was at the top of the forum after I checked in after a few years away, I was stunned. So my question is where is the link to his tracker?

    This thread has completely sucked me in.

    The problem with a solid light is it's impossible to see in a fleet of nav lights, and that was a major factor in the time it took us to locate the MOB. A strobe is definitely the preferred form. I like a backup handheld torch though too, to use directionally.

    The rep is supposed to be getting in touch.

    It was an ACR C-Light. I replaced all the pfd lights with them, new batteries, and tested each before packing. Once he went in, it was intermittent, then completely out. When we tested it on land later and it would work vertical, but not on it's side, so it's pretty defective. I test the other 6 I had on Wednesday, 5 worked, one barely lit, and would come on and off randomly.
