      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.

This sort of thing is why you gotta trust the guy driving when you go up the mast.

See?? I told you this is where we left it last year! Don't worry. I bought some white duck tape. Fuc*ing yard charges too much for storage anyway. We'll leave the whole boat here in a few months & viola!!

Yeah - and he hasn't realised the boat isn't under him anymore. Probably still calling for more ease in the halyards...

One of the biggest benefits of fixed concrete/iron marks: no need to protest if parts of the rig touches the mark

These aids are not intended to assist in navigation, but rather to alert the vessel operator to a special feature or area.

 

 

Tying up to or hanging on to any navigation buoy or beacon is prohibited.

Another superb bowman... Going above and beyond to keep the sail out of the water whilst fixing another cockpit fuckup.

Just like the brochure said: it's a snap to unstep the mast!

So you removed main sail, mast, and one crew member to reduce weight... that'll cost you 9 sec/mile.

Well, it did make doing a 360 a lot easier, but I still say the WHOLE BOAT has to do 360. Where's the new rule book.

This exact thing happened in Newport Harbor about a year ago, except the boat was around 36-feet.

 

There was some breeze that day (I forget, but probably around 12 knots) and we spotted this boat earlier motoring around with sails furled. They were flailing about and looked like they might crash into anything at any moment. It looked like the skipper's first time driving any boat, anywhere, ever.

 

Later we saw them seriously tangled with the day beacon off Bay Island, mast broken, main torn, stuck, unable to get free. Eventually the Harbor Patrol was able to free them. The day beacon is still mangled over a year later.

Sure I know what I'm doing. I can sail us close enough to that mark to reach out and touch it.
