      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.

There's short thread about the where abouts of the moulds.

 

But does anyone have a reasonable idea of the number of T870s kicking around Aus?

Any actively racing?

I thought Stand Aside was from Vancouver and Gypsy was originally from QLD as far as I know.

Gipsy was Tony Cuschieris original production boat out of Melbourne. It raced here for a few years , notably chartered to the Pommy "Charlie Fish" crew for the first Skandia Geelong Regatta in 2004.Tommy was laid up here in Melbourne by a Croatian boat building team with plans to build them in Europe but that never eventuated. Tommy, now Where's Wal?, is a tad lighter than the others and Jeppo has improved her after blowing the original tin rig out of her in a big Geelong blow a couple of years ago and replacing it with a nice carbon stick.
