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.

The 54 yr old Mizzen Staysail that came from the "Frederick E Hood" loft in Marblehead has earned a gracious retirement. Looking for thoughts on what to replace it with, style, cut and material. I see two general sails: one for moderate reaching, TWA 70-110 or so, and deep reaching, TWA 120-165. As these are low aspect ratio, they can be carried up to pretty good TWS. Rig Dimensions: EP = 17.6, EY= 8.6. EB=18 (mizzen to Main spacing) Mizzen boom about 3.5' above sheerline. Rough Pythagorean math gives a Luff up to 27', Foot up to 27' and a leech about 19'.with the Tack slightly to weather of the Main Mast and setback and outboard perhaps at the aft lower chainplates. the line drawing here shows an example: http://sailboatdata.com/viewrecord.asp?class_id=1650 Given that this is a pretty unusual sail and will be tacked to weather of the main boom, and sheet to the mizzen boom, its design will be interesting. For the closer reaching sail, the tack might move inboard to centerline. Material suggestions? Vendors? (my default will be Hood) example images ?
