      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.

Probally a very unusual crew request, PNW

Soo I found someone who is giving away a roughed up 41 ft boat on the condition I'll be able to transport it to the water 

 

My best housing option seems to be a liveaboard, but my experience is pretty minimal outside of messing around on rivers and lakes in Wyoming on rafts and motorcraft 

Are there any willing hands on deck that wouldn't mind helping me out get a hang of things and acclimatized to it all? 

 

 

Or failing that, is anyone about that could help get this to the water?

I’m sure there’ll be a few anarchists with ideas to offer, they’ll be along shortly. :)

Gladly. I have a new 3-axle sailboat trailer and a Peterbuilt to tow it with, I'll drop by this weekend to tow the boat. And fortunately my brother-in-law's cousin owns a boatyard nearby with a travellift, he'll gladly drop it in the water for us. Need a place to keep it and live aboard? No problem, my neighbor's dog walker owns a marina and we can set you up there for free. Then I'll happily spend as much time and money as we need on the boat to make it seaworthy, liveable and sailable (my butcher's manicurist's husband owns a chandlery with all the supplies we'll need).

Welcome to SA.

It ain't going to be free or cheap.  However, the cheapest way is to find a boat transporter who will be deadheading from or to another delivery.  They will want to pick up that extra money and therefore will charge less.  Also find a transporter with hydraulic pads.  You will not need to pay to have the boat lifted onto the truck or taken off.  I suggest that you have the boat ready to go in the water when you do this.  Otherwise be prepared to pay the yard to put the boat in the water when you have gotten it ready.  Good luck.
