      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.

Agree 100%. Geoff is made of tool steel. Except the multiple parts they gave him back are titanium. I do not know of anyone else tougher than him.

In the latest Epoxyworks issue, there's a great story on how a husband & wife team gave the infamous Gougeon build
"Hot Canary" some love and TLC and renamed her Vivacious.
(Paste the following into your browser.)
and the 2011 video of building Hot Canary.
Both Jan and Meade Gougeon are gone now and will be sorely missed. 
 
As some of you have noted, our websites are down, but we are alive & kicking, answering the mail and helping with builders questions.
It's a bit of a long story. Suffice it to say, we have needed to update our outdated & cumbersome sites for a very long time. (Especially the map.) We've both had big surgeries during the past year or so. I recovered quickly, but Susan hasn't. After seeing dozens of doctors, we finally found one who looked beyond the usual suspects. Turns out it was Susan's heart. But the good news, it's something rare that can be controlled by a new medication. She needs a few months to get stronger & we'll be back to our full strength.
 
When the new site is up, we're going to raise prices as we haven't done that in several years. Material costs etc. have gone up.
In the meantime, please just email us directly @ i550watershed@yahoo.com.
We can send you a Paypal invoice for $100 USD for the pdf plans etc. Prices for Tyveks, CAD files, kits will remain the same, too, until
we get the new site up.
Again, thank you for all your patience and good wishes.
Cheers!

ANy of these so-called i550s for sale anywhere?  

Brand new never titled PDX build with carbon foils and spars, on a road trailer ready to go for less than you can build one yourself; just add sails!  PM me for details

I've got an inquiry about boats in Sydney or reasonably close so an interested guy can see one and touch it to see if there is chemistry.

Only because I forgot my usual login stuff and am too lazy and unmotivated to look it up.  Hey. It's January.

Did you set the guy in Syd up with some nearby contact info?  I hope so!

So far no returns about i550's within reasonable distance of Sydney. Many have migrated to Hobart. 

I am waiting for someone to challenge Commache to race for boat registrations on a course of the i550's choosing

I may be looking for a gnav fitting at the mast. Also looking at 640 mainsails, although for an aluminum rig...
