      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.

Seeking Transatlantic Passage

Recommended Posts

I am trying to get across the Atlantic the most adventurous and cheapest way possible (not counting my own labor as a cost). I will be upfront in saying that I have no sailing experience. A little bit about me- 22 year old guy with a B.S. in engineering, finishing up my Masters, born and raised in Alaska, have always been the one having to do trips solo because no one else was wild enough to come along! I have a decent amount of navigation experience (I'm a pilot and have been flying the Alaskan bush for the last couple years) and I have spent a little time boating and diving in the ocean. The main reason I want to sail across the ocean isn't financial, it is simply for the adventure. I have done all sorts of adventures around Alaska and am looking to branch out in the world and learn about sailing. I can get to the East coast of North America and would like to make it by sea to Europe or Africa doing whatever kind of work I have to or just keeping someone company and swapping stories about adventures. Alternatively I would be interested in a passage from Alaska to any continent to the West. The time frame I am looking at is December-February of 2014. I am up for any trip you might have planned. If you can't find anyone crazy enough to make some wild sailing trip with you I am your man, I'm very intelligent and willing and able to learn all about sailing!
