      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.

Biscayne Bay

Need some local info. I'm bringing my new tartan to dinner Key Marina this weekend. It has a 5'10" draft . Can i get through the Bascayne Bay Channel and if not what's the best way into Biscayne Bay ? Rig is too tall for intercoastal so I'm entering from the ocean.

I don't know about the navigation but is the Nixon/Scarface house still standing? If it is and you go over don't tie up to the concrete pier. Somebody not very nice looking will shoo you off.

You should be fine using any of the marked channels into the bay. The boat I used to regularly race on has a 5' 6" daggerboard and we got through the channels just fine.

I sail there every week. Biscayne Channel should be fine, but don't cut corners entering the channel, round the "2" to starboard and stay in the channel, straight over to dinner key channel and then following the channel in to the marina. The water outside the dinner key channel, especially to the north is pretty thin, we have bounced on the bottom there and we draw 4' 6", so stay in the channel.
