      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.

    When it breaks, take a look at the construction. Previous owner of hull #9 here. My first Phil's Foil broke exactly at the edge of the lower gudgeon. I had Phil's make me a blade and I mounted the gudgeons from the original foil. I explained all of this to Phil's and sent pretty exact diagrams. The rudder lasted about 2/3 of the season. I was pretty disappointed that there wasn't stronger construction in the transition from the gudgeon area to the blade - just what looked like solid cedar. I would have preferred a carbon fiber or fiberglass tube, or even oak insert to suppor that area - given that its an obvious stress-riser. Phil's made good by building a new blade with molded in gudgeons (although the specs were off by a good bit, and I had to relocate the gudseons on the transom to suit).
