      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.  

Hard dink vs inflatable...

Recommended Posts

I have a small sailing gunkholer in the San Juans that is kept on a buoy.  We take a ferry to visit it and use the dinghy like a commuter car with a portable motor.  We use a Minto dinghy kept in the water at a local restaurant dock.  Had to bottom paint it.  Not as stable as an inflatable but- any inflatable owners have a similar use case?  I like the stability but am concerned about beaching on rocks, swings in temp causing it to feel too tight in the day and then soft in the evenings, punctures, fowling over extended periods in the water etc.  Looking for opinions and suggestions.

Thanks, Joe

Ummm, this is not that kind of dinghy anarchy, you might be better served over on cruising anarchy.

My 2c worth though is hard over soft dinghy ;)
