      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.

Here are the details.

This is not a paid crew position however you will eat well and all expenses paid. Depending on where we end up we will fly or drive back to BWI or Annapolis.

This is a "fun" trip to get my boat south. Winds under 20-25 and a reasonable forecast we will go offshore from the Chesapeake.

If I do not like the weather window we will head down the waterway stopping every night and hopefully get offshore in Beaufort, NC.

The boat has 2 staterooms with doubles and two saloon berths. I intend on taking 3 or 4 plus me.

The auto pilot, weather, plotter, AIS is all Garmin, 1 year old.

Boat sails up tp 10.5 knots in less tha 20 on a reach and averages 7 on all points with a little breeze.

Refrigeration, windlass, saildrive. No furling, 3 headsails plus a chute.

Depending on how my business schedule unfolds I hope to leave in the 10/28-11/2 time frame and be underway for 5 to 7 days, leave the boat and return. 2nd leg to Palm Beach later.

Let me know if you have questions.

Hello,

 

I may be available for the second leg if you're planning on mid to late Nov. I have more than 40 ysr experience racing, cruising and delivering boats. I have more than 3000 miles offshore experience. Hope to hear

Update for a fun trip south. Due to Sandy we are departing Annapolis 07:00 Sunday November 4th.

boat has AIS full Garmin AP, weather, plotter, EPIRB, 6 man raft canister on deck, jack lines, 140, 100, 60% fully serviced. 150 mile shakedown just completed ( returned yesterday)

Plan is to dock in Little Creek, VA and wait for a "ideal" offshore window. If it looks nasty offshore for a few days we will take the inland waterway to Beaufort, S.C.

After 5 days we will secure the boat and fly/drive back to Annapolis.

if you are fit, agile, have tons of racing/cruising experience you would enjoy this trip. Eat well, no unnecessary risks and good beer & wine when not underway.

Several people have responded but we have had no firm departure date until now. At this point me and one other person who raced on the boat this season are confirmed. Ideally I would like 2 or 3 more on board.
