      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. Cool, what sort of 3D printer are you using?
  2. I'd love to see the sail area / displacement for that. I suppose the rig could increase the fuel efficiency slightly when motoring downwind.
  3. Oh, the shadows were playing tricks on me. I thought it was another boat behind it. Now that I see it, it makes the boat look like it has a little stubby erection.
  4. Is that a submarine behind it?
  5. I think currently God is suspended from CF. Too much smiting.
  6. Are we reading the same forum?
  7. No kidding! I just got sucked down this rabbit hole because I saw the thread about Dabnis getting banned. I couldn't have been happier, so I read on to find the reason. Fuck, now I've posted in this cesspool so it's going to show up in my Content You Have Posted In every time I log on! I probably need to get my eclipse goggles back out to read this vitriol.
  8. Wow. You guys are completely nuts. I knew there was a reason I avoid Political Anarchy. Jeebus.
  9. Florida. It's just shaped like a prick, it's full of them too.
  10. All this dick slapping is ignoring a very crucial question. How come this guy only has one hand?! And what's he got for the other, a hook? Aaarrrrrrr!
  11. Never let a crisis go to waste.
  12. Everybody thinks their own boat is the best, so take this with a grain of salt... A Catalina 22 is really an awesome size to learn on. It's small enough that you can quickly adjust the traveler and feel the effect immediately. You can usually trim the jib without winches. But it's big enough that you can do big boat things like lock the tiller while you run forward to fiddle with the jib or change sails. It does have winches so you can learn winches. It's small enough to manhandle around the dock, but big enough that you still need to think about inertia and momentum when docking. And if you get an old one it's cheap enough that you can feel free to fuck around with it. And, as stated previously, a scientifically proven chick magnet.
  13. Chicks dig a Catalina 22. That's just science.
  14. I really like my Catalina 22. It's small enough to be cheap, easy to handle, and easy to sail, but it's big enough that you start to get that big boat feel.
  15. Nice.
