      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.

Try  a little more aft rake and prebend on the mast. Made a huge difference on my FE28R.  Outpoints the competition now

On the to do list... I'm as raked as I can be with the factory stays, but I'm planning to switch to dyform and I'll get a longer forestay and shorter sidestays when I do that.

Anyone know anything about this particular boat?

I can't get any pictures of the boat that's actually for sale from the "seller"

I have some photos from last fall when I sailed her. I'll post them when I find them, but not tonight. If seriously interested, PM me your contact info and I'll forward it along.

I hope you kept the shipping cradle, that boat would look great stored like that for the winter in the living room!
