      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.

Judging from the loose padded lifelines, something that's designed to give the crew internal injuries.

Looking at the picture again it is probably bigger, so lets say an FT 11 or FT 12?

I was thinking the same thing- not about the ft-line, but the size... Sure looks like a sail drive leg as opposed to a well-based outboard... Something mills? The proposed SB345? It doesn't look quite the same, but seems big for the Farr 280 guesses...

Another lame-ass non-spinnaker class with a T-bulb kelpketcher.

 

And what the fuck is with the stupid padded lifelines? Bunch of Wussies. Looks like a fucking pram.

 

Wow, it has a chine. It must be really fast then.

 

Just what we needed on long island sound. 20 foot draft "sportboats" that can't beat an 18 foot catamaran and won't fit through the channel except at high high springs.

look at the size of the instruments on the mast = no, smaller boat

the b&g 30/30 HVs are almost 10" wide... it could be those... :P

 

but you are, ultimately, probably right... it was just the thing that looked like a sail drive that convinced me it was bigger...

Tough to tell the size based on the foils and the motor and the instruments. Sure looks cool though. Tell me what it is cause this could very well be my next boat! Looks very cool.

 

Thanks Anarchy for posting another good one!

No big boat will have a cleat for the main sheet, it would be on winches.
