      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.

What Issues to look for in used tiger ?

Recommended Posts

You're going to get a lot of different opinions here, my 2 cents:

1. The answer depends on what you want to do with the boat

2. If the casette is OK, then spending $3k on a new sail is a better option

3. There aren't any real issues with the boats, assuming they've been maintained.

4. The builder had a few modifications that should be in place on all of the boats: mast step, turnbuckles, mast / partners clamshell and proper collar.

After that its a case of what upgrades you want.

If it's an early hull that came with a factory kelp cutter, you'll want to do a thorough inspection of the keel. My keel (hull 23) was replaced under warranty after failing and filling the keel with water. No cutter now, sealed up tight.
