      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.

Rope Fenders

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,


Just thought you guys might like to see some rope fenders I made recently.


The black one was my first attempt, came out pretty good.

The white one has a loop both ends for the bow of our tender. Took a bit of fiddling to get the loops both ends but very happy with the end result

Looking good!


BTW - All the local boats, tenders, etc in Galapagos had rope knotted front protectors.... they looked really good and helped protect against the harsh rocks in landing areas when sandy beaches weren't available. I'll see if I can dig up a photo of any..
