      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. Two sailors and dogs rescued after 5 months

    Two losers with no jobs... smacks of a book deal to me.
  2. Tom Scott?

    Same thing happened on TSBB. He was one of the top posters and took offense, packed up his stuff and left.
  3. The Zombie Fleet

    That's SOP for Boat Angel. They've been around for years somehow. Sort of a clearinghouse for donated boats. The owner provides the description and photos and they list it. I'm sure the marina owner will sleep better when that one is gone...

    It damned sure isn't going to fall off the trailer!

    This may be historic, folks.

    http://washingtondc.craigslist.org/doc/boa/5569804018.html Where does one dock something like this? And would they pay by the foot or the square foot?? I admire the fact that at three stories tall, this thing is able to stand upright.

    Clipper had some talented designers. The 26 was a real standout. OUCH!!!! WTF were they thinking? What amazes me is that William Crealock was named as the designer. And for more than one of the Clipper boats so it was not just a matter of taking an existing Crealock hull mold and modifying it. You never know what was going on behind the scenes. What were the inter-personal relations, what promises were made, how much was anyone paid, who actually did the work? Looks like a drunk monkey was trying to copy a Columbia.

    Dang, it sure looks to me like it's sitting on a trailer. Maybe there are so many random parts piled up, the guy doesn't realize it? And the date on that photo is almost eight and a half years in the future... maybe if you run out and buy the boat today, it's actually in great shape! FB- Doug ^^ This. My guess is it is still sitting in the same spot, present or future, still covered up with the same junk...

    I had one of those as a kid also. Bought it on a whim at a yard sale and "sailed" the hell out of it, for about a week, until there was a god awful noise, turned out it was the plastic hull covering splitting away from the styrofoam. Looked back and saw what looked like a turtled hull in the water behind us. Pretty funny at the time.

    http://norfolk.craigslist.org/boa/5045790827.html Hey, it's the "predecessor to the Sunfish." Totally restored, this must be worth at least $50. Anyone know how to repair styrofoam??

    I think this one is having an identity crisis. I admire the fact that someone thinks putting a mast and furler on it makes it a sailboat.
