      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.

I love this one - this is Jan and Mead Gougeon, owners of West System Epoxy and the builders of countless high-performance multihulls. They're chatting about their trials and tribulations aboard the trimaran Adagio - the second oldest boat in the race, and one of the quickest. Good stuff.

A long-ish interview with Kathleen Torresen and her brother Brian. Brian is always this funny - during this interview he was trying to figure out a NMEA interface issue in the Gunboat's autopilot so he couldn't really focus... Dude never stops.

 

 

Here's our final video - a goodbye to Mackinac and to the party that Bev and Vegas threw up on the roof of the loading dock buildings. Excellently done and great to meet all the anarchists, and thanks for telling me I left my dog on the roof when I ran for the ferry. You'd think something so big would be hard to miss.
