      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.

The only thing keeping that car from taking a plunge is the spring line wrapped around the front wheel. Knife would take care of that, quickly.

I wonder how quickly that guys insurance will drop him (no pun intended) when they find out they have to pay for the repair on that kroozer. I bet it'll go for 3-4 times the cost of that econo-box!

New Beetle, looks good from that angle.

 

Ummm....

 

Volkswagen doesn't make a 4 door New Beetle.

 

But other than that, good fail.

I think for it to work properly, the rubber tires need to be facing the boat. Not the dock. Someone obviously put the fender on wrong.

That spring line has a lot of stretch if it can hold a car up. though on that boat I bet the line is worth more than the car.

Maybe the marina should put a curb around the docks so idiots who leave their car in neutral won't find it later in the drink.

The most interesting thing is that there had to be someone in it when it stopped; wonder how they got out or if they are still inside?

Quite right and Citroens have automatic handbrakes. I always wonder if you can trust them.

This is a economic political statement depicting social class warefare. David vs Golith photo opt. Much more effective than the human microphone. I beleieve tyhe owner of the VW should convert the bug and sail it across the channel.

When launching the Castro 82's marina run-about using the spinnaker halyward, be sure to attach the lifting harness to BOTH the front and back lifting points.

Could probably just throw the main halyard around the rear wheel and use the electric winch to pull the little shitter off while a car with another line pulls it into the parking lot.

I never understood why there aren't more portable curbs to prevent situations like this (like we use in parking lots in the US). I always saw that setup in Europe and wondered how many cars went in the drink. Amsterdam seemed especially crazy with all the street parking just inches away from the edge of the canals, and no curbs!

I've done some stunt driving myself. Mostly in first generation Nazi go karts, they used to call them bugs. They were great in snow had great heat and super easy to hot wire if you needed a ride.

The ultimate road trip vechicle good on gas, which made for more beer money.

You can get a lot more cars in the parking lot when you park them vertically.

I was wondering why many posters think its a beetle(and continue to even though its been pointed out many times its not), then I actually looked at the front page. Clean fucked up.

Pretty much all of Europe is non-OHSA compliant. From the crazy-narrow steep staircases in old hotels to bizarre entrances and fixtures, I just about get a sore neck from shaking my head "That'll NEVER pass ADA-inspection....oh yeah...they don't care." Then check out the older back-roads in Italy - windy, narrow, no run-off, no guardrail - sometimes there will be a rusty piece of wire alongside a stunning dropoff. Not for the nervous.

 

But the comment about firing somebody for NOT having a bump-stop curb ? All you have to do is NOT drive over the edge, you know.

God this one could go on for days!! Getting popcorn......

 

FTR - I think Citroen C3 adds a LOT more time to the PHRF than a Volkswagon would, still handy for a quick run into town after the race though.

 

We really need a full blown caption contest for this......

 

Citroen C3- Its the new Cruiser Dink, fits on the foredeck - Mostly.

 

Citroen C3 - when you just cant drink anymore....

 

Citroen C3- not the way to set up spring lines...

 

Citroen C3 - no parking fees, no slip fees.....

 

Volkswagon - When you finally kill that Citroen C3.....

 

Alright- back to work.

 

Ohh wait - More !!!

 

Citroen C3 -when you have to let Clean take the car.

It was actually the Stewardess from another yacht in the harbor who forgot to set the parking brake on the car. Unfortunatelly not the first time this happen in Antibes. Bit hard to explain to the owner.

What's wrong, Seposito? Did your inflatable girlfriend spring a leak or did she just float away? Aren't you tired of spewing non-stop keyboard diarrhea about J-105s? Get a life or, at a minimum, some professional help.
