      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. Finn sailing

    Apparently missed that detail! If it's not black it ain't carbon!
  2. Finn sailing

    I don't know much about Finns but this one seems to be over-priced but in good shape. Aluminum mast so it won't be competitive but a good boat to learn in none the less! https://columbus.craigslist.org/boa/d/finn-lemieux-abbott-boats/6365450667.html How much would you Finn sailors pay for this setup?

    One Design 14 (despite what the ad says) in Maine. I've been texting with the mother of the young man who owns it and she is hoping to sell it to help him afford a semester abroad. https://maine.craigslist.org/boa/d/international-14-sailboat/6328732630.html Tom
  5. 505 7772 - Upgrade & Refit

    If you get the poles from Waterat they come with them.
  6. 505 7772 - Upgrade & Refit

    Mine was 128kg (8265) with 1.2kg of correctors in it at Worlds this year!
  7. 505 Worlds Annapolis 20-29 September 2017

    My money is on Howie Hamlin. He was crazy quick in all conditions at the NAs in June. On the light air day he started mid-fleet and was in the lead by the top mark. Very impressive speed and consistent sailing all week. I'd put Tyler Moore and Behm/Falsone up there as well if the wind remains light all week.
  8. I was watching Bachelor in Paradise on ABC last night (not by choice - or so I tell myself) and I saw what looked like, possibly, the old Young Australia being used as a kind of party barge in Puerto Vallarta. Did anybody else see that? Looks like they made the deck one level (no cockpit anymore) and removed pretty much all of the hardware - replacing it with a slide and other activities...

    What's your budget and plan for the boat (i.e. are you going to attend Worlds or just daysail with it)?
  11. Craigslist Finds

    Here are the pics of the 505 in Fairplay, CO mentioned in post #860 above. $200 for two sets of sails and this hull, spars, foils and trailer. WCB, is this a Ballenger? It looks like it to me...

    I called on it but he never called me back...

    Some random boats for sale in Colorado - of interest to me is the 505. You need to call get any details on it. https://denver.craigslist.org/boa/d/sailboats-for-sale/6205993978.html

    I was just about to post that this morning! Looks like a fun project for an FD lover.
  15. Need used 505 centerboard

    I've got a standard centerboard built for a Waterat hull. I forget but I think it's for a 30mm trunk give or take(?). I could ship it from MA if you'll pay for the board and the actual cost of shipping. Tom
