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.

stuartXe posted a topic in Gear AnarchyI attach my Gennaker furler (Karver KF2) to the bowsprit using the gennaker's standard snap shackle. Problem is in a very short time the friction between them has worn them out a fair bit and developed sharp steel points that are chafing the dyneema lashing of the Spinnaker tack. I identified 3 possible solutions but not found much online to see if i'm on the right track. any direct experience is very welcome!! 1. Splice a short dyneema loop around the U-bolt and attach the shackle to it - this is the simplest thing, but I worry about torsion in this look when furling the gennaker in wind - I would be very interested in knowing if anyone uses this solution. 2. Karver suggested I replace the standard snap shackle with their 2:1 / 3:1 friction sheave. This, they say, will also better stabilise the drum when furl/unfurling and will make it easier to to install the furler when the bowsprit is out. This option works but adds a circuit and i'm keen to keep things simple. If I go this way I then wonder whether I could part with the spi tack and use the 3:1 circuit for the spi tack too - main price is the longer purchase system when rigging the spi and the heavier shackle (Karver's is 100g). I've shared a few more details on my boat's thread. Any insight is much appreciated
