      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.

A new Farr 42 footer being built in QLD. Existing Farr 40 deck, hardware and rig, new hull and keel. Owner use to own a certain Mumm 36 in Pittwater.

 

What do I win??

Yeah but odd the hull is in Sydney as he has moved his business up to QLD and was led to believe the new bus was being built up there.

 

What would you do with the old hull? Put a flush deck on it and turn it into a cheap little harbour racer? Still going to cost 150+ to source a rig and keel etc..... Can buy a complete one for that these days.

I was thinking the same thing. Maybe use it to make yacht club bar or some kind of sailing themed sculpture. Not much use for anything else.
