      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.

12 meter sailboat scuttled off Cape Sable Island

19 posts in this topic

Interesting to watch and see how this turns out. Sailboat came in close to shore with lights off and proceeds to remove mast and scuttle the boat. Crew is missing but reported not to be on the boat at the time of sinking.

Didn't something like this happen around this same time last year, also off the coast of Nova Scotia?

Read "In Search of Captain Zero". There are some great stories in there about events such as this scuttling.

 

I LOLed out loud, anyway!

Removed the mast on a 12m sailboat while anchored? Interesting...probably wanted to retrieve their lucky silver dollar from the step before scuttling. Or something else.

 

Kinda clever.

Its now being called a 10m sailboat so we can rule out Intrepid, Weatherly, Easterner,

Kookaburra III, etc

I've studied tits and as you can see in that photo the left one is always bigger.

 

But opposite is true in the southern hemisphere

unsung benefits of weight aloft

 

Mathkids: how many kg you could fit in a 40 footer's mast if you ran all halyards externally and pulled all the other bits out?
