      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.

Rare Exotic trimaran for sale/partnership on SA classifieds

Recommended Posts

inbetween 1973 and 1977 Jim Gardiner worked with Meade and Jan Gougeon. At the time the Gougeon's of course were iceboaters who turned to multihulls. They built many multihulls, including a trimaran built for the OSTAR. I was told she broke in the Newport/Bermuda race and ended up in a shed. Jim was an incredable builder and decided to build after the wanna be OSTAR boat. Jim was one of the first builders to use carbon fiber,even years before the Gougeons. "Cake Walk" the new boat is one of the first ever built with carbonpost-51040-067399800 1327906955_thumb.jpg. What makes this trimaran unusual besides wave perceing hulls is the fact she is built like an airplane. Even today 1600 lbs in a 34'x26' is a feat! Cake Walk has had a minimal race record but had been a serious contender to Bill Roberts in the day in Southern Florida. It is important that 1977 ' Cake Walk" is raced in 2012/2013 in SFB, she is a time piece that needs to represented in the upcoming attention to multihulls due to the AC 34. She has the potential to make a HUGE statement. I am going cruising so I would like a partnership to show off her abilites in San Francisco Bay while I am gone. Remember a trimaran not a catamaran won the last AC challenge! SEE AD
