      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. I believe the dealer is in Montreal
  2. One on Lake Ontario too cool boat
  3. 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
  4. 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.
  5. 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
  6. 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?
  7. 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.
  8. Tried but cannot seem to shrink it down small enough on my phone Btw what does it rate out there ?
  9. Mine has a carbon sprit also
  10. 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
  11. Wondering if the boat is stable enough to climb to the top of the mast ?
  12. Find a little Beneteau First class 8 lifting keel and fast should be a ole to find one for around 7 or 8 grand i saw one for sale this winter when I was in Miami used to be a few in Toronto
  13. Figaro 1 pretty well meets all of your criteria I have one of the nicest ones but in the Great lakes Rare bird in North America There is one in Vancouver. It it needs some love PM me if you like more info
  14. Always nice rolling a 40 footer downwind going 16-17 knots
