      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.

This new superyacht looks like a UFO on the water

Nowhere for the "deck crew" to stretch out and get a tan seems a bit sub optimal. On open water it makes all sorts of sense: and think what an interesting photography platform it would make. But it does seems as if using standard shore facilities could be interesting.

I assume they have "people" to do the docking for them.

 

Docking is so 20th century. Just pull up alongside the pier and press the "station keeping" button.

 

 

called a 'sky hook'. pretty much everything with 360 nozzles now has it. Best shit ever.

That SS is fucking bizarre. 3000 horsepower to go 56 MPH? for fuck's sake, if it's carbon and you put foils on it you could do the same speed on a pair of 150 HP motors. Unless it's got marble stairways and a gold tub somewhere below? wtf?

where are the photos of it docked and people really on the actual boat. looks like a very good vaporware video to me. has anyone actually seen it in person? can you say photoshop or movie set. something just does not look right with the video.

Don't even need the 360 pods. Mercury even does it with just twin outboards.
