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.

Sad to say that good friend, master boat builder and sailor Ray McLeod of Douglass and McLeod and Tartan Yachts, passed away 10:17 pm February 2018 from complications of pneumonia. Builder of Thistle, Highlander, International 14', D&M 22, Tartan 27, Tartan 34. Tartan Black Watch and many others. Ray will long be remembered for his boat building and sailing skills, his fierce loyalty to his friends and his willingness to help any boater in need.....as long as you didn't try to feed him a line of bull shit and piss him off at some time. He had one helluva a memory, get him once and you'd seldom get a second shot. Met Ray in Sept of 1976... 41 years ago. He became not only a close friend and supporter/critic(?) of my one boat build, many mods to the same and antics that followed, but an almost fatherly mentor in other areas of my life. For those who knew him; Ray could more than hold his ground - and did on more than one occasion- , was fun to be around, generous to a fault, had great respect for loyalty and was a damned good beer drinker. In his eyes there was only one way to do things, it was the right way or nothing. Yesterday the sailing world lost one it's greats, for those of us who knew him, we lost a dear friend.
