      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.

If anyone is interested in the boats (in particular) or any of the larger items, but isn't local and/or doesn't have the time/resources/space to transport and store them, shoot me a PM. I have a climate controlled warehouse just down the street and can quote on transport & storage. Also might be interested in any creative joint bids or deals.

What's the story on the boats for sale?  Particularly the J/35.

Fuck that, I'll take two 22's and a 24.

A pity.  They were hurt by the Hall Spars exit.

They had some quite viable products, like the Alerion Express 28.  Roughly 450 sold, I think.

Hopefully someone will see the opportunity.

Anyone know why they went under?  I thought their expansion to the Warren facility was privately funded / no debt.  Just curious....

Thanks jerseyguy! I'm going to see about having a representative for the program up there to look into these.

 

Also if anyone knows of people looking to donate a J/22 or J/24 to worthwhile cause, please have them contact me at Valhalla Sailing Project (rob@valhallasailing.org) or on the Book.

 

Cheers

Sailboat sales across the U.S. used to be 30,000 to 40,000 units per year.  This year I suspect will be under 2,000 units (including Sunfish, Lasers, Optimists, up through super yachts).  There aren't enough orders to keep factories open.

Hey, I'm guilty of buying a European made sportsboat. If they fit in a container, importing has become easy. It's a global economy and US made boats are no longer the only option for US sailors.
