      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. what lake/where do you live? it depends a lot.
  2. I'm trying to find a laser to sail in the AYC weds night series. Tried e-mailing gouvernail but no response yet. Anybody else got a contact or a boat there? Would love to get out tomorrow (9/6). Thanks!
  3. Intensity MK II Laser Sail

    The MK II practice sail looks terrible. Even after several sessions it has the large crease. I also ripped out part of the Cunningham cringle last time I sailed. Definitely not worth buying unless it is improved.
  4. Are you located anywhere near Austin? I am there quite often and would love a test sail if that is possible.
  5. It is more of who didn't say anything.
  6. Best Laser Hiking Pants

    Sandiline. By far the best. You can't buy them in the us. Try suntouched in the UK.
  7. How Does Buying a UFO Foiler Work???

    Dave & Steve, I definitely understand your lack of interest in producing a trailer that seems completely unnecessary and redundant. I don't dispute your assertion that car topping is completely viable and likely the best and least expensive option. However, it seems that there is a strong interest amongst a significant group of purchasers in a trailering option. Just to dispel any uncertainty and associated nervousness in the buyer, could you show how the boat could easily be trailered with one of those widely available models? A few folks are obviously unsure of exactly which trailer might work and how with this boat. We could then know that if we buy that trailer and a few extra fittings it will work well. There would be no extra mucking around and ending up with a trailer that might not work as well for some unknown reason. The most intrepid will likely still roll their own option, but for people less inclined to tinker and just go sailing there will be a clear path. Hoping you guys are starting solid 1 design class here. Thx!
  8. This is going to be a fun one.
  9. ....got stung by the 'WASZP'?..OD foiler...

    My number came up and I'm curious if anybody has received one of these yet?
  10. Austin TX Dinghy sailing? Lasers?

    Perfect. Thx!
  11. It looks like I will be visiting Austin with some frequency over the next year. Any advice on dinghy racing here? I would especially enjoy some laser sailing. Any ideas on how to charter or rent one of those beasts? Thx! Pete
  12. Laser repair kit: what breaks most often?

    Any tips on how to fit a 2nd boat in a small tool bag? Probably i should get a spare set of spars though.
