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.

We have a mooring in Boston harbor. We’ve concluded for a one-design to be viable in the harbor: 1, Has to have bottom paint as the norm: moored boat can’t be competing with dry sailed Boats. 2. Needs deck cleats for mooring (Melges 24 was a PITA to get hooked up). 3. Needs USCG legal running lights: from late July on you are returning in twilight or dark. 4. Needs a motor to get out to the course and back: starting line might be 5-7 miles away. The J/80 has a few other advantages: 1. There are already several in the harbor, racing PHRF. 2. Cost and crew requirements are relatively low. There is active J/105 OD in the area but they aren’t readily trailerable. 3. Decent supply in the Northeast. Most of the boats seem to have been built 94-04. Any builds to shy away from? We note some later hulls were made in France. Is that good, or bad? Any problem areas? Moisture intrusion into the balsa core seems a common problem. We understand the shroud bases are just drilled through the cored deck. What are they really selling for? Asking prices seem sky-high: 50% more than the boat owners we’ve spoken with paid.
