      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.

Drunken boat brawl in Tiburon (with video)

Drunken boat brawl in Tiburon (with video)

 

 

Sailing season’s opening day Sunday featured a stately procession of yachts, but by the afternoon things got a little rowdier when a handful of drunken boat-hoppers got into a brawl in Tiburon, police said.

 

At least six people exchanged blows Sunday afternoon after unwelcome guests hopped onto a boat, said Tiburon police spokesman Sgt. Rob Law.

And this is why I never go sailing on opening day, during that k-boom nonsense, or when the blue angels are flying during fleet week. Every idiot with anything that floats is out there getting drunk. Good day to stay home and bb-q.

This is exactly why I avoid packs of drunken boaters celebrating on the water. I'd really rather not have to explain to the nice policeman how that nice young man got so terribly injured falling down on my boat.

 

I mean, boats are dangerous.

Sigh.....

What ever happened to request permission to come aboard?? isn't there some sort of shoot first ask questions later law out there?? :lol:

 

On a similar note I booted a couple of non sailing aquaintences off during a kegger one summer. Neverr asked to come aboard, just jumped on midships and almost killed themselvs cause they did not notice the upper lifeline. Made the fuckers wait on the dock until I could find the boatswains whistle and call word to be passed... :D

if that had been my boat, a few of those dicks would have SOLAS flare wounds to show off to their friends.

sams is the spring break zone of the bay area, mostly power boaters who need a dock when the afternoon wind comes up, most locals avoid it and let the tourists pay the high drink and food prices.

Sailors and drunken asshattery. I am shocked, shocked!

 

Correction, power boaters and drunken asshattery boarding a sailboat. Since my (sail)boat is considered a second home, doesn't that mean I'm free to put my winch handle through their skull? Just have to do it before they get over the toe rails. Love Sam's, just not on Opening Day, Holidays or Saturday's.

Admit it... how many of you read Woody's post and immediately went back to the video and moved to the 51 second point?

 

Cheers,

Well if you live in Florida you can always stand your ground and shoot the motherfuckers.

 

 

Of course I stand corrected, we all know power boaters are loud, obnoxious, hard drinking, living on the edge, anarchist types, er I mean Neanderthal types, whereas sailboaters are soft spoken, well behaved, gentle teetotalers. Of course power boats, much like their owners are loud, smelly, disruptive and ugly, whereas sailboats, especially racing sailboats are quiet, graceful, gentle, beautiful pieces of carbon fiber art. That is why this website is so renowned for its polite, erudite discussion of all things sailing.

You'd at least think they'd fight like sailors. That was pathetic.

 

Fukin' generation X or whatever they are nowadays.

I did. Disappointed they were packaged.

 

2 seconds I'll never get back, but 49 seconds saved!

Yeah, WTF? That wasn't a "brawl" I only saw one guy throwing hands, feebly & clumsily at that. One southerner could mop the deck with that whole crowd, except possibly the second cop (who at least didn't trip over his own feet).

 

 

 

Just remember - no matter how it looks, it's safer than ocean racing ...

 

Except for the liver

looks like some OC meatheads road tripped it up to Marin, eh?

Really?

 

The sailors I know down here aren't much the fighting types.

But I don't know them all, so they could exist.

In my group, if someone has too much to drink, they usually find a comfy chair and just smile a lot before dozing off.

 

But I am always entertained by "meatheads" is it? who brawl. I can't help but think they somehow evaded an evolutionary check-point somewhere along the line.

Those aren't sailors; those are powerboaters. Natural habitat may be a bit inland, but they head down to the water on the weekends. Think Cassidy's or Rodman-era Josh Slocum's. Meatheads galore. But, on further reflection, the OC variety have lots of tattoos. These meatheads must be homegrown. 925 rather than 909.
