      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. Live Racing Thread

    Class interview from Jimmy.
  2. Agreed and Agreed. At this level though we aren't comparing this to winning the winter series at Port Nic, or crushing the sunbursts at Heretaunga. Losing at this level means you are still better than 97.635 sailors in world, but your only measuring yourself against the 2.365 who are the best.
  3. At Americas cup level? Fuck yes its a bad thing. Not winning is bad. FYI
  4. Team NZ

    Caveat, I've been drinking. Peter Burling Looks like a Hollywood version of Peter Blake. Why have the design team and the marketing department and everyone else made him grow a sandy blonde/ginger Mo? Please resume normal transmissions.
  5. NO Australian, loves the sound of his own voice. PB Kiwi. Once upon a time someone wrote a book about New Zealand and called it "The Passionless People" PB's pressers are a display of that!
  6. Where are all the Barker supporters. .

    God, the internet. Dean Barker is a great sailor. No doubt. Won a heap of shit. And is a solid human who you don't hear shit about. Dean Barker is no Russel Coutts, Dennis Conner, Jimmy Spithill. He is not an all time great sailor compared to every other great sailor that has ever sailed. If you cant comment unless you have reached the level of the people you have commented on....The fuck is every one doing on an America's Cup thread?
  7. that's unpossible

    Sailing has zero Gangsta credibility... I loved the one time I sailed an Etchell. Loved it.
  8. Movable Ballast Systems

    ...should the prototype ever be built.... You're not even sure if you want to build it? You've changed, the old Doug would have said it is going to be built and stuck to his guns

    Update please.
  10. 20+ Footer - Building in Hawaii

    How has deck mounting been going? I have been following this thread quietly, but have noticed that its been very still recently, I imagine its because you actually have work to do and a life to live outside of the workshop and SA But more photos would be cool

    Aging Aunt Mildred was a 93-year-old woman whowas particularly despondent over the recent death of her husband. She decided that she would just kill herself and join him in death. Thinking that it would be best to get it overwith quickly, she took out his old Army pistol and made the decision to shoot herself in the heart, since it was badly broken in the firstplace. Not wanting to miss the vital organ and becomea vegetable and a burden to someone, she called her doctor's office to inquire as to just exactly where the heart would be on a woman. Thedoctor said, "Your heart would be just below your left breast". Later that night........ Mildred was admitted to the hospital with a gunshot wound to her knee.
