      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.

Great boat. But plane, NO! Ask the owner the fastest he's gone in flat water.

It might plane if you dropped it off a building

The MORC boats were a good bit quicker than IOR boats the same size downwind, but plane?...No. It's still a pretty good boat, that should do well in PHRF.

The only way it will plane is off the ramp of a C-5 Galaxy!

We were hitting 14s here. Felt like planing, but maybe it was more surfing... I don't know.

Had one for 7 years. No way. Only time we felt like we were on a plane was 2015 BIRW around the island. 30 knots + 6' waves of stern quarter. Hit 15.7 and sustained 13+. It was awesome!

So I just read that add and thought the same thing, planes?!?! really. Then thought maybe I should start a thread asking the question "Does it plane?". Decided I didn't want to be a dick but I shouldn't have worried since there is always someone to "be the dick" in the SA forums. Upon further thought we might all just be part of a huge dick collective here on the forums where someone will always step up to the lead role. ;)

People will break their necks to get the lead role.
