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.

I'm wondering what impact various modifications have had on a boats IRC rating? I know that the IRC rating system is a "black box" so the only way to truely know is to either do the mods and get it re-rated or do a test rating. So obviously there is no book that can be quoted, just personal experience from mods performed (or tested) or what you've read online. It does not matter what boat it was.... Some of the updates I'm mostly curious about are: reduction of foresail area by going to non-overlapping jibs Adding a bowsprit that extends beyond the spinnaker pole larger spinnakers or asymmetrics Carbon mast removing running backstays rating changes from any other mods will be appreciated.. I found this comment in an old thread about the Sydney 38 from 2008 when they allowed bigger masthead spinnakers in the OD class.
