      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. Toronto Harbour (Canada)

    Try owning two boats nd filling 12 positions especially if you are in a very small yacht club with very few racers
  2. There is a copper washer under the bleeding screw and you hoops replace it as if it is scored from opening the screw the engine will not work well under load or high rpm

    I have two of their offshore jackets alway had issues with the zippers think next time I would stick with Musto or Henry LLoyd
  4. I have one in Canada but it is modified with a 3 ft carbon sprit so we can run asymetrical sails Fun little boat
  5. Far East 23 or J 70?

    I believe the dealer is in Montreal
  6. Soto 40 - still sailing somewhere

    One on Lake Ontario too cool boat
  7. Toronto Harbour (Canada)

    Pm me have two boats always looking race Wed nights and Thurs but sail pretty most days so also a good app one to learn and practice
  8. Platu 25 setup

    I just bought one too ! Mine has a carbon prod for an asymetrical but so far I have found the regular symetrical better for windward leeward racing. I found a North rig tune from North Italia which i have been paying with. I would also be interested in any advice anone can share. Perhaps we wold be better on the Sportboat section. I am in Canada and the Platu is a rare bird here. Not many in North America.
  9. Platu 25

    i bought the boat like that and have been wondering about putting it back in the well. Do you have a pic of how you secure the cover once the engine has been lifted and put in its storage locker

    I did the same with the main halyard and the spectra backstay i like the idea of running the tack line through the sprit but that may be a next year job tough tweaking two boats and doing most of the work lol getting old or lazy What kind of top speeds have you been reaching downwind?
  11. Platu 25

    for some reason I thought you were in Vancouver. I am in Toronto and do list NYC once and a while. Haven't sailed the boat yet. It is in the water but just getting it rigged up Previous owner added some weight ovr the keel bolts which i think I am going to remove.
  12. Platu 25

    Tried but cannot seem to shrink it down small enough on my phone Btw what does it rate out there ?
  13. Platu 25

    Mine has a carbon sprit also
  14. Platu 25

    Just bought the boat and was curious. Don't have any reason ro go up but eventually the situation may arise. It feels a lot tippier than my Figaro lol so was wondering if anyone had advice as I know theee are a lot of those boats in Europe Kind of an orphan in Canada
