      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 have a 505 (17' LOA on dolly, no road trailer) plus 2 masts (25' LOA) that I am trying to get from New England to the SF Bay area before the end of the year. Any leads on a load headed west would be appreciated.
  2. 505 - What is the best kit?

    I think what Madness meant to say is that the aft tank on the new Rondar will now be modified so that it is not a buoyancy tank (because the 2014 rule change was not aproved). The hull is not a double hull and it is not self draining; self bailers are still required. The construction of this boat is actually similar to that of a double hulled boat, but there is no air space between the two; they are directly bonded.
  3. 505 - What is the best kit?

    Maybe I should start a new thread for this...but are there any articles/photos already online anywhere on rigging the "Spin Halyard Puller-Upper". We have trap twings that we don't bother using 'cause I forget to put them on at the leeward mark 99% of the time. I will start a separate thread.
  4. 505 - What is the best kit?

    Here is a link to the gear table from the top 10 boats at the 2015 NA's: http://www.usa505.org/rigging/WTWU-2015-NA I think the best blanket advise regarding gear/kit is to buy what the fastest guys you will regularly sail and practice with are racing on. No sense in having a one-off setup in your local area. You can win with a variety of setups, but being the same as your training partners will help you get up to speed quicker. Glad people like the video we put together!
