      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.

I searched.  Im surprised there isnt already a thread.

What do folks use for coastal sailing (East Coast USA in my case) on their ipad?

Simple.....clear and good graphics...because im sailing a small fast boat and can only glance at the ipad in its ziploc from time to time.

I dont need too many features.

1. Charts so i dont hit anything

2. Download way-points so that I have bearing to the next mark

3. Indication of whether I am high or low of the rhumb line.

and....I want to be able to set up before the race...put ipad or iphone in ziploc bag and just glance at it from time to time.


Oh...and preferably t doesnt take 4 hours to download

I use a few.  MX Mariner is good because it integrates Active Captain and the charts for the Bahamas were not too expensive when I went there this past winter.
