      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.

    The next leg, right! If he's aiming for Japan we can assume he'll wash up anywhere but. Someone alert the Ohio Coast Guard....
  2. Sailing around the world in a San Juan 24

    Really? I make it more like 2700 nm.

    So you're saying there's a part of her story that doesn't make sense?
  4. Sailing around the world in a San Juan 24

    Because Fiji is about 2700 miles from Saipan.
  5. Sailing around the world in a San Juan 24

    My theory on that is that he was just drifting with the current. With no water flow over the rudder he would have no steerage, so to him it would seem that the tiller is broken.

    I believe this is closer to the truth. Never imagine conspiracies where simple incompetence would suffice
  7. Two sailors and dogs rescued after 5 months

    I like dangerous drugs.

    "It is standing height inside." You don't say?!?!?! Look at that cabin, wow. "Mast is 22 feet, Boom is 8 feet." That's significantly smaller than the rig on my Catalina 22. I wonder what it's sail area / displacement is. Six?
  9. An unusual hitchhiker...

    Did he bear an omen?
  10. Junk on the trunk

    Quadrophonic sound, DUDE!
  11. The Zombie Fleet

    Sounds good to me, I'm going in.
  12. Two sailors and dogs rescued after 5 months

    How many discarded cricket bats do you generally sail with?
  13. Two sailors and dogs rescued after 5 months

    I've heard that if you play the Benny Hill theme song backwards it exactly syncs up with the first interview.
  14. Two sailors and dogs rescued after 5 months

    It's plausible, but not fun.
