      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 happen to the U20?

 

The VX One is a good choice if you want to sail 2 up. I have not be on Lake Travis in more than a year and know it is very low, but was told yesterday that you can launch a Viper, VX or anything similar.

 

Right now we are running a VX One special of $29,950,Including: complete boat, rigging, aluminum trailer and tie down bar, Southern Spars carbon fiber mast, Southern Spars carbon fiber boom and a full set of North (Generation 5) Sails.

 

FOB Savannah Georgia.

 

Call Ultraracer and come crew with him at the George Griffith regatta this weekend at Rush Creek YC. There are already 3 VX's committed. And if you like them, just PM me and we can get you an even better deal, fully loaded and delivered in Austin/Lake Travis.

J/70.

 

Depends, as always, on what you're looking for in a boat. There are about 8 J/80's at the club, with at least 5 on hoists. This is a solid group with some great talent and travelers as well.

 

The J/70, however, and in my opinion, will come on strong. With it's retractable keel and lighter weight, and especially with the limited water in Travis currently, the J/70 easily trumps the J/80. In order to get a J/80 out of Travis for the NA's (Fort Worth), they're having to get a crane. Contrast that with a new 70 splashed last week without a hitch -- or rather with exactly that, a hitch! The 70 is way, way faster to a plane and doesn't load up like the 80. I've raced 80's a bunch and like the boat a lot, but I've got a deposit down on 70 arriving in the Spring!

 

Why not a Viper or VX? Personally, I've got a 71 year-old father and two boys, ages 4 and 2. Any breeze and we'd be great on a 70. Not interested in going swimming with these 3 generations aboard.
