      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.

    They are going nowhere in a hurry...

    Mmmmm, Pacific milk run anyone?

    Saw this the other day and came to see if it had been flagged, cheeky buggers. Alibaba is full of it, 10 companies all offering to make things they only have stolen artwork for and nothing else. If some sucker places and order they will figure something out. It was a saucy little boat.

    Maybe Capey's just faking a move on the twins behind?

    At risk of overpostal diarrhea. The current situation was the basis for my question earlier. It seems TTOP was only notionally in front due they're being closer to the rhumb line. Once everyone passed NC a new rumb line was in play and suddenly the Paintwagon shot to the front. Not something you see often.

    Mine was crossing the North Pacific. No working freezer, so fresh meals for only about a week. Two weeks into boring canned crap etc we caught our only fish of the trip, a nice Dorado. Bloody heaven.

    I think everyone's going outside Sailby, now going inside.....that would be a ballsy move.

    I don't either. For Capey's sake I hope they go around. That front pushing up the Tasman could fuck them up pretty bad.

    Nice fish! Some in US may know it as a Nassau Grouper, same family. Arguably the best eating fish on the planet. That said I've found the best fish you will eat depends much on the circumstances.

    That's the Suicide mate. Mind you, if they did tack they could be at the Isle of Pines for a croissant breakfast and a nice shower.

    early update as the submarine went stealth

    Going inside hasn't done TTOP any favors.

    Now I remember why I haven't been around much over the last few years. There is a great deal of information and comradere in these forums but eventually the dick swinging makes it all somewhat unpalatable. Anyway back to the subject at hand (so to speak) it's going to be a fascinating drag race from here and anyone could take it. Only about 3 Hobart's to go.
