      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.

The Discarded- Rescuing a Tartan 33

Question for you Tartan 33 guys - are the V-berth or quarter berth comfortable doubles for a couple?  Planning to move into something a bit more cruisey and able to single-hand, and these look like they might be the ticket.

My wife and I are um..."sturdy" and we sleep in the v-berth with no problem. I use the q-berth for sail and cushion stowage, but I imagine that an average sized couple would fit comfortably.

Did you know that the stbd settee also forms a double berth? You remove the backrest and add it to the mattress/sleeping surface. It has tabs and locks that lock it into slots. That berth actually seems more comfortable than the q-berth.

O25 are you still on The Chesapeake? Cause if you like the layout, etc of the 33, the 33R with masthead rig and deeper keel combines better performance up and downwind with all the rest of the T33's goodness...assuming you can live with the deeper draft (6' 3" I think)

Ajax, thanks for the response. I did not know about the stbd settee double, I need to get aboard a T33 for a thorough look.  You look pretty thin in your avatar, btw....

Crash, I am still on the southern bay. Just joined HYC this spring.  I agree that the 33R could be the best combo but they seem very rare. I'm also trying to keep the draft under 6' so I can get down the ICW without too much stress. Another alternative is the T31, which looks pretty nice but a bit pricey for its size/age.
