      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.

Historic Tasmanian racing boat Tassie Too restored

Recommended Posts

With a little help from crowdfunding, a group of enthusiasts have brought one of Tasmania's original famous racing boats back to the waters of the River Derwent.

Tassie Too, a 6.4-metre wooden boat built in Hobart in 1927, won the Forster Cup — Australia's sailing championship in its day — a record 10 times between 1928 and 1952.

The Cassidy brothers (They later owned Klinger - one of bruce Farr's  first boats) owned a small timber boat converted into an yacht in the early 70's called Tassie two. They did a Brisbane to Gladstone on it and nearly lost her on the wide bay bar bringing her home from the race. Could this be the same boat?

Albert Park Yacht Club on the Lake have one of these. There is at least one in Goolwa as well.

I've sailed on it and it is a lovely boat. Not sure about doing the Gladstone race in one though. Then again, guys used to sail the Elwood Seahorses on Port Phillip (Bay).

I was wondering where TT had come back FROM..
