      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. Time to Un-Zip! Wheeeeeeeeeeeeeee...............

    Steam worked for me, lots of steam Good luck
  2. Heavy #1 vs #2

    Less luff round? The H would need more luff hollow to allow for more forestay sag wouldn't it?
  3. Thanks @SPORTSCAR, great photos. Scavenger was already gone from your crowd photo so I must have missed that action or my memory is going We motored south, looking for somewhere to anchor until the motor died (kink in the fuel return hose)... It was an eventful afternoon
  4. Kids on a 16 foot skiff

    That is sooooooooo cheap Add some wheels to the cradle for launching and you are good to go.
  5. I don't recall the crowd of sailors on the bow, my memory was that it ripped off rather quickly. The crew cast off, motored away from the pier, then turned the nose into the waves without plugging the hole... Sunk before they had travelled 100m!
  6. Thanks, we were tied up beside them when the bow was ripped off
  7. Sailing tshirt company on SA?

    @DryArmour paging @DryArmour
  8. Did Flying Colours lose their bow under the Portsea Pier before the start of the Westcoaster?
  9. From memory the block did the damage, no mention at the time of ball bearings
  10. Safari & iPad

    Working for me... Except for pages with lots of pics/video links, then the page reloads multiple times Download speed?
  11. Jesus shackle

    Notch? To me it looks like a shadow from the thinning of the plate but you may be referring to something else
  12. Sailing with running backstays

    Inline spreaders... RBS required always Swept back spreaders... RBS not as critical during tacks/gybes (wind strength a factor) YMMV
  13. AC 36 Protocol

    Would anyone want him as CEO? In both AC 34 and AC 35 his boat was clearly slower at the beginning. Yes they improved during the match but shouldn't they have been at 95% potential rather than 75%.
  14. J112E

    Isn't the L shape the heavy bit?
  15. J112E

    Thanks for the feedback straight keel?
