      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.

Yes it appears to be a racing boat and a bad angle to view the hull, but Mr Perry guessed right before, from a pile of wreckage, so I have to up the difficulty level. I'm betting SJB gets it first.

Has a TBird main and transom, but if it's a TBird, they've really modified it. Looks like it's probably Nuda in Comox, since it looks like #54 and they reportedly made a similar change.

Speaking of zero resale value...

 

 

Yep. If people want to race a TBird it would have to be class legal. If you don't buy a TBird to race, you'd want to cruise....and, well...that wouldn't work so well with this one.

Most of the T-Birds I've seen sailing were just daysailing - that one would do that very well.

 

Of course I never saw a flush deck I didn't like.

We took ours into the San Juans and Gulf Islands. It sailed up Princess Louisa as well. I can't see the logic in modifying a usable TBird like that. Granted, there are no shortage of unusable TBirds in Puget Sound.

Well for one thing, modified that way you can legitimately say "hike you bitches". :D

Nope, see post #6. It really is a chopped Tbird. You can see the chine at the transom in the original pic.

I have a friend from Comox coming for dinner tonight. I'll ask him if he knows this boat. Looks like a flush deck T-Bird to me.
