      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. You can still get parts for an Atomic 4. Some old diesels? Not so much.....
  2. I wonder how many of us have now looked at our water heaters wondering what it would take to get it out. I know I have.
  3. I'm 6 feet tall, and easily fit in my Miata. Miata Is Always The Answer
  4. Are you saying you look like Proa? Snags is a Ninja Wordsmith .....
  5. That's a nice looking boat. What is she?
  6. To can outrun a hurricane with a 4KNSB - but you need a big enough aircraft for it.
  7. I'd dump the rig and increase the engine sizes. It rarely will be used as a sailboat, and you save the cost of the rig.
  8. Got to love the irony...........
  9. Nice ride - but, a bit closer to $40-50K than $8k. Pontiac Tempest convertibles are a lot cheaper. Here's one for $12.5K: \ https://bringatrailer.com/2011/06/07/black-plate-bargain-1965-pontiac-tempest-convertible/ I've heard of people taking Pontiac Tempest convertibles and putting on GTO badges.
  10. Proa has given out his real name over at multihull anarchy - in the thread titled "Jim brown". Plus, he listed his website "www.josephoster.com" in his profile. So he outed himself. What's funny is that in one of the threads in multihull anarchy someone called Proa a bully. The irony.......
  11. Higher booms can be a PITA if you are trying to get a sail cover on it. My boom is about 6'-2" above the cockpit sole, so putting the sail cover on while standing on the cockpit seats is fairly easy for me. Since you have a roller furling boom it isn't a concern for you.
  12. Earthquakes.
  13. RKoch - I hope you also survive with little or no damage.
  14. I drive a 3rd gen. And have thought about a trailer.
