      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.

Oahu Dockage for a big boat?

Recommended Posts

Any Hawaiian Anarchists hanging about?  We're looking to find dockage for the 72' sailboat we run on Oahu for about two weeks in April and two weeks in June.  We're going to be prepping for a research trip to the Phoenix Islands in May and then an all women's trip back to Vancouver in July.  Last time we were in Hawaii (about 5 years ago) we stayed in Kewalo Basin, but apparently it is undergoing renovations and when we spoke with them last month they weren't sure if they'd have any space available in April (or even be done with work yet).  The other big restriction is that we have an 11' draft.  Does anyone have any suggestions or contacts for where we could put a boat of this size, ideally without paying $3.50/ft/night in Ko Olina?

You just ruled out my only suggestion.

Have you tried negotiating the rate?

I gather parking it on the breakwater for a couple of months would not fly.

Magic Island would be good.

Funny, we were killing time watching sailing videos last night.  They were sailing into the Ala Wai and showed the sailing dominatrix’s first boat on the rocks.

If we have space, the end tie on E dock at the Waikiki Yacht Club would work in terms of draft and length.  I assume someone has reciprocal privileges.

Right under the Aloha Tower is sometimes available, not sure the cost.

Any idea who we'd need to talk to about that spot?

I'll check when I get to work.  I believe reservations went through an agent, will get a contact number for you.

I don't have the number for Honolulu, I believe the captain contacted the Port of Honolulu to get permission for Pier 9 at the Aloha Tower. Mind you this was for a 200 foot yacht so probably a bit overkill for what you're looking for but should be possible.
