      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.

Lot's of ads for this loft in Canada.

Anybody bought a sail from them?

Just got a ridiculously low quote from them for a new main.

Too good to be true

I made the mistake of looking at it yesterday now I'm getting spam banner ads on my computer/browser(s) - I hate that! However there is no "Precision Loft" that I know of in Victoria. No real address on their website. Some of the guys in a local sailing site (www.sailingx.com) are asking the same questions; like: WTF?

 

Anyone from the Victoria area (that were they are supposedly to have a presence of some sort) that knows about this?

 

Inquiring minds want to know?

I would be cautious of a loft with no address on their site. also watch out for VMG sails as the took money and did not deliver on many peoples orders in Southern California. The owner RD McCarten bailed and moved to back to western Canada.

They could be drop shipping sails from Asia. Testimonials look a little dodgey to me. Allegedly a 242 sailor in San Diego bought some for racing and is quite pleased. While I could use a new main for fartin' around the bay, I would not step up to the plate without more bonafide testimonials or references.
