      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.

Hello,

Sorry to probably be asking a question that has been asked hundreds of time, i've followed tho forum for ages now but just became a member.

I am seeking input on an offshore singlehanded racer, I would love a Figaro II but they are out of my budget and cant find one here in the USA. I am looking for a boat that flies an asymmetrical kite, hard chines, open transom and is under $50k. I know this probably doesn't exist in my price range but I am throwing it out to the wolves to go after.

If you have any suggestions please let me know, I know I have left out a lot in this post, but due to there probably being 100+ posts on this I didn't want to waste time.

Try a G32 Catamaran, if you have an open mind. She wins, and won't break your budget.  Of all the fast single handers I have sailed she is the fastest and least demanding.

Moore can be tough enough with two on board! Lots of fun, great boat.

Add an asym on a sprit and watch the speedo climb

$10K price tag leaves you $40k for new sails

+100

Yes, that is true especially considering this is your very first post. :ph34r:

Quest 30 or 33s. Couple on yachtworld I would suspect will actually sell nearer your target amount.
