      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.

Tired of being ignored by port tacklers?

Erm.. ok terrific.

 

You're likely going to wake up in a few hours and wonder who taped up your boat.

 

It's ok. This happens sometimes.

 

Put some lifelines on that thing before the real hilarity ensues.

Funny. Would be better with arrows pointing which way dip and tack is; which would mean it should read <-- TACK/DIP -->

Generally, any tacklers are a problem. There isn't much difference between port and starboard tacklers. OTOH, the odd curvaceous blonde tackler might be ok. In any case, the safest thing is to put down your anker.

An´ker

n. 1. A liquid measure in various countries of Europe. The Dutch anker, formerly also used in England, contained about 10 of the old wine gallons, or 8½ imperial gallons.

 

 

Ten gallons of wine and an odd, curvaceous blonde tackler? How do you get her to let go of the anker and tackle you instead?

Aye, that's the crux, innit. One must make sure she lifts the anker a few times first. Then, when her grip appears to be loosening....

Hot Rod has been throwing casks of wine in SF Bay? Weird.

I was wondering when we'd have full-contact sailing. Much better than having a trip to the room.

Dude should check on his starboard bow line...almost gone.

 

Like his style.

Still lots of life left in that line.It was a jib sheet for 5 years before being demoted to dockline.

Actually, wouldn't putting them on backwards have the maximum competitive advantage? ;)

 

< -- DIP | TACK -->

 

At least until they miss the dip ;)

Docked next to an "S-18 Exotic - Sun Party" pontoon boat, pink dock lines that the rats have done in, and yellow tape on the bow? Sounds like a cry for help... move up the lake, we can save you!

Maybe it already is, Sirrius...

 

Wouldn't putting them on the other side of the boat be more fun? See how many people would assume it was right and tack away?

Shark sailors already have enough problems telling left from right.

 

That being said a lot of bigger boat owners have trouble with sharks having right of way over them. I LOVE it when they try to drive over us saying things like "We're in a race with XXX so you should give way", I've used the "Go ahead, just remember your paint job is worth more than my hull." hail on those jerks on more than one occasion.
