      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. Sailing around the world in a San Juan 24

    I think that still requires Rimas to take all the paperwork to DMV. Think that happened?
  2. Two sailors and dogs rescued after 5 months

    yeah, we're trying to make sure you don't get your boat back. Its a big conspiracy and we're all in on it. SA, the Navy, the VOR, Rimas, everyone. we planned it all out ahead of time.
  3. Sailing around the world in a San Juan 24

    I like the dock line still just lying in a pile on the foredeck 2 months after it was untied from the dock
  4. Catalina 27 Tuning Guide

    take everything out of all the cupboards, drawers, and lazarettes and put it in the garage
  5. Sailing around the world in a San Juan 24

    not so sure about that
  6. weird sinus issue

    neti pot. about $12 on Amazon. been using one for years. every morning right before shower. all kindsof shit comes out, and helps me dodge most colds. have to get the salt ratio right or your eyes water a bit (with either too much or too little salt)
  7. Sailing around the world in a San Juan 24

    he already misses those great days of sitting in the cockpit staring into the sun all day.
  8. Sailing around the world in a San Juan 24

    I thought the burgee halyard was literally for burgees?
  9. Sailing around the world in a San Juan 24

    Costco sized jar of maraschino cherries rolled and banged on a thru hull that was already 99% corroded away. that was the "big bang"
  10. porn hub / google data mining

    so she's good to go with a borrowed strap on as long as the dog stays in the car? asking for a friend.
  11. Barn Find Cal 40

    ah yes. makes sense. thats legit
  12. Barn Find Cal 40

    definitely a 40 in need of rescue. and a Moore 24 parked next to it in the yard. how did those boats end up marooned at Marathon Key? they're a long way from home
  13. How close can the sails be? (i.e. the "slot")

    depends on soooooooooo many variables. VOR 65 or TP 52 is going to be very very very different than some 4 kt shitbox. close and sheeted tight for them when at speed, not so much for regular schmoes YMMV
  14. Calling/denying buoy room

    correct. 3 BLs measured by the front boat
