      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.

Anyone ever sailed on Arabella out of Newport?

5 posts in this topic

The warden and I are considering a 5-day cruise around New England on the Arabella next summer. We like to sail/race so we're avid sailors, as opposed to cruise ship types (nothing wrong with that). Does the Arabella actually sail, or is the 'sailing window'/schedule so narrow that they end up motoring or motor/sailing more often than not? We'd really rather be on a boat that actually sails as much as possible/most of the time.

She will probably not cruise next season As she has been sold.

Didn't know that, but I'm not at all surprised. Thanks for the heads up, reduces our vacation options for next year from 4 to 3...

Not sure if the schooners in Maine are on your list but if you want to sail, they should be. we spent a week on the Stephen Taber a few years ago and highly recommend it. The food is outstanding and the sailing even more so. The Taber is engineless and gets pushed around by the yawl boat (dinghy) when there is no wind. As a result, 99% of the trip was under sail. You can help as much or as little as you want in sailing the boat. It was a great trip.

I have never sailed on her, but I took a nice picture of her rig(s) when she was at the Naptown Boat Show in 2010. This was my phone background image for quite a while.

It is a cell phone pic, so don't expect kimb or boomer or Sons type quality.. :rolleyes:
