      Abbreviated rules   07/28/2017

      Underdawg 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 have over the years wathed Ed Psaltis in the Hobart race after the and his crew won the 98 race. I have been following this year and am very impressed that the Farr 40 his hanging tough with with a Marten 49 and a lot of boats that should be measureably faster. The conditions the other night had to have been shit going up hill on any boat, and for AFR to hang in there is very impressive. Watching the the current weax models Ed and his guys might pull it off as they make there way to the derwent.

SC®Agree, it seems like for their size/weight/age they punch well above their weight.

The sth 2010 seems like the sort of race where you won't be able to fluke your result, you would have earned it on this one.

Crew work and skipper tactics will be the decider on this race, I am also watching AFR with interest...

Good boat but a bloody good crew. One of the best owner drivers in the business who always gets a great crew together.

 

The boat has been heavily modified and it is a really good offshore boat these days. It is for sale and if anyone is interested PM me. And no, no plans to buy an add.
