Abbreviated rules 07/28/2017Underdawg 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.

A friend of mine recently aquired a one-off 28 foot sailboat which has a shallow, very long chord keel. The old owner said the boat went fast upwind (possibly due to the fact that it weighs around 4500 lbs.) and tracked well. It made me wonder if a long chord shallow keel would produce the same lift as a deep skinny foil, keep in mind that I have next to no knowledge of hydrodynamic/ aerodynamics. Basically what are the pros and cons of the deep skinny keels and shallow long keels and in what ways do they even out in performance.
