      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. Mocking Ads on Craigslist

    I once had a small sailboat with an outboard on a bracket. Even though it was a long shaft it still had an annoying tendency to pop the prop out of the water when condition got a little choppy. That shouldn't be a problem here. ...and did he need to chop up two NEW chairs just to get the five spokes for that wheel?

    Well for $39.950.00 you get one week. So the real selling price is $2,077,400.00 The ad states that the boat will actually be purchased when 80% of the shares are sold but also that there are only 4 weeks still available. To me that seems like over 92% of shares sold. Show me the boat! But seriously, can anyone explain how this scheme works? Here's the most expensive one week rental I could find:

    And why does the forum change Fort My Ears to Fort ********** ?
  5. Tom Scott and UnTom

    I did have the spelling wrong. The boat name is actually "My Cyn". Thanks for the history UnTom, I'll pass it on. Be good to know if the new owners ever see their boat again. So if your in the Fort ************ area... BOLO for MyCyn.
  6. Tom Scott and UnTom

    BOLO. I have friends who are looking for their boat that was last seen on mooring ball #1 at Fort ************ Yacht Basin. Initial report that it was safely tied up to a dock proved false. Boat is a 1986 30' Catalina tall rig FL registration white with blue bottom name "My Syn".

    Nobody picked up on this? Really?
  8. O'Day 27 worth considering?

    Thanks. Looks like she's carrying a good press of sail for the conditions. I took a pass on the one that needed work. A little research found that there were several others locally in good condition for short money. In the past I wouldn't even have considered this boat but I think I've changed my mind on that.

  11. O'Day 27 worth considering?

    It's under $1K, needs to be moved ASAP, needs some glass work that I'm comfortable with doing. Has usable sails. It's just that other than my old Mariner I've never really looked at O'Days that much. Guess I just wanted to make sure that they weren't all gonna laugh at me on the water.
  12. O'Day 27 worth considering?

    It's not horrid looking would fill the bill for what I need in a boat for the next couple of years. Looking at the numbers it seems like it should perform okay too SA/D: 20.01 D/L: 170.62 Ballast/Disp: 50.02 Your comments are encouraged.

  14. Sailboat ID - Grainy Pics to Peek Your Interest

    I think you nailed it Tom, and you didn't even correct my spellling! I wasn't sure as I couldn't find a picture of one online that showed the same type of plexiglass windows until I came up with the following. Details that confirm the ID are the location of the bow eye. The molded ridge or jog that runs just below the sheer and the sort of unique aft buttocks. Thanks for your help. I'm going to pass on this even though it seems to be in decent shape the price is right. Anyone else interested it's located in Central Mass. and is sitting on stands and needs to be moved soon.
  15. Okay, anybody know what it is from these crappy cell phone pics? Clues... located in North East, former RI registration, shallow low aspect keel looks like it might hide a swing keel, appears to be maybe 22' to 24' mebbee? Thank You for your consideration
