      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.

I saw the Scout project. Good effort but it died a few weeks ago!

They have a back up tracker so you can see where it is drifting. Will be interesting to see where it ends up.

Have seen the Saildrone around for a while around the SF Bay Area. All wind power, no motor.

Speaking of Durgs, you're smoking crack if you don't think these things are Military Funded.

Saildrone isn't. In fact, it would be great if a someone with $ would invest

a bit of cash into this shoestring project... 4 guys, a big shed and some great ideas.

That's quite funny Thumper! Maybe you should edit your profile interests and swap innovation for cynicism!

Good job Saildrone team. Only 300 miles to go I see! Very cool.

Does Saildrone jibe itself, or is there someone behind the curtain pulling the strings? The final approach to Hawaii is causing a lot of maneuvers. It doesn't seem for the purposes of speed? Interesting to see this test succeed.

Agreed, D A-W is a very good and very underrated designer and a hell of a good sailor
