      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.

    anything on water. Liquid or solid.
  1. Definilty NOT a Mac. Nice standing headroom. I guess thats what the ladies rely like. I'm guessing "the owners Daughter"
  2. Can anyone name the boat? http://i.imgur.com/f7IT8qX.png
  3. So yesterday at my buisness, I was contacted by LaserPerformance for a dealer inquiry. We were Laser dealers many years ago but got cut out when they went to in house sales. Has anyone else been contacted in this way? Are things coming back together? Should I jump on board or run screeming?
  4. What blows my mind is that some of the adds have been taken down by the posters indicating that of all things, they SOLD them.
  5. Only $2000 and it has a mettal reinforcing band.
  6. http://burlington.craigslist.org/boa/3766901344.html
  7. SO to be upfront with you, I sell these for a living. Here is my $.02. The board you are refering to is supper stable. You will have NO problem keeping your balance on it unless you are a 300lbs idiot who drives a SeaRay. The big draw back to SUP is that you have a lot of windage and only one paddle. In high winds, you can kneel and use a kayak paddle. Body Glove sells a paddle that one end of it can be taken off and a handdle put on it so that it changes back and forth between being a kayak paddle and an SUP paddle. The only problem with the paddle is that it DOSE NOT FLOAT. Have fun and happy sailing.
  8. It still would not work. He would have several thousand pounds of lead hanging from the bottom of the boat from dry wall screws.
  9. I think that I would rather go to see in that shipping container.
  10. The mast is not telescoping. It is a two piece rig. The upper slides into the lower. If it has been together for a long time, it might be basicly fused. The halyard should be going through a fairlead at the top of the mast that is slightly offset from the sail track. The halyard runns external for the top part and then goes into the mast at the top of the lower mast section. Hope this helps. They are fun boats.
  11. (724): oh sorry. I thought "boat" was code for "penis"
  12. Did anyone else notice that the article says they plan on doing the defered maintenance to the "boat" AFTER they reach Guyana. What kind of idiot plans an ocean crossing BEFORE doing all the repairs to the vesel?
  13. As a carpenter, judging from the photos that I have seen, I would have to dissagree about him being good at stairs. By the way is there a bulkhead behind those aft stairs on each hull?
  14. Except for the fact that this one was designed by Jim Antrim and paid for by money from DARPA and HP, yes, they're almost exactly the same. I wonder what the "Insurance Setlment" that he is using to start the funding for this project was? Maybe overexposure to lead paint?
  15. Wonderful thread gentlmen. Slowboat, Have you filled out your crew yet? You should not have a problem at all I would think. I have noticed somthing in all the photos posted so far. The boats are beutiful and seem to atract beutiful women to them as well. I am sure you will continue this tradition. Best of luck to you, she is beutiful ride. Bored Ex-Broker
