      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.

First cruising boat I have owned, the photo was three weeks after I bought her in St. Petersburg Fl.  I am her fifth owner. The previous owner did a good job maintaining Osprey. My wife fell in love with the boat when she went below, and it had an interior and not a five gallon bucket for a head. Osprey is a 1985 Pacific Seacraft, Crealock 37. I bought the boat because in my opinion it was a good choice for crossing an ocean. I had a dream to sail my own boat to Europe since I was thirteen. In May 2014 we did a transatlantic to Spain. Returning to West Palm beach two year later.

I guess if KDH is showing his, I'll show mine. Older, but we love her.
