      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.

what was it?

It was a Peterson 2 tonner - was last named "Sassy's Lee" and participated in the Canada's Cup Defender Trials in the 70's. Was owned by Dutch Schmidt, owner of the famous Holland 78 Sassy. If I recall correctly (been a while since it was relayed), there is a story behind how Sassy's Lee was notified (some say prematurely) she would not be selected as the Defender.

Whatever it is, it's incorrectly registered.

 

USA is not a valid Hailing Port - and the vessel isn't in the database.

 

Likely not CG registered, but uses State tags.

A boat that won all races in the late 70s that everyone older than 45 today will swoon over?

 

Yes, beats nothing to swoon over...agree with the Pete, though not sure.

 

Give me wood, time and $hekles to keep the big boy!

Won't run either. Well if she does, one of her legs falls off, and over she goes.....
