      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.

Jesus the video is better than I imagined when I heard this story. Though The damage to medicated looks worse in this than it actually was.

I grew up around the corner from there. And it begs the question what was a gravel barge doing up there it gets pretty thin between the two sides of the harbor there.

The docks are fairly new and were in great shape. Haven't been down to see what the damage is. Happened last week

 

 

Darth- there is regular barge traffic a couple of times a week in and out of B R harbor. Has been for years.

It's narrow but dead calm and protected. Sometimes things just go pear shaped. Don't know what the cause was.

Poor Olson 29, they're rare boats and one of the best ULDB's ever made... I've gone wayyyy too fast on one in the middle of the night and it felt rock solid the whole time.

You had best be joking...

 

Edit: Ishmael, report from the owner of the O29 was that the damage was not catastrophic.

I saw the Olsen on the trailer at the yard for repairs... it's not too bad, at least from the outside. The bow pulpit is a pretzel for sure. That boat used to be wicked fast.

What do you mean used to be, it's still a fast boat. The big guy in the middle is awesome and has a ton of years under his belt. And the driver is one of the best around LIS.

Compared to the immediate prior owner, not so much.
