      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.

Are you sure you are talking about a J92? The J90 Ragtime has done a fair bit of distance racing including at least one hawaii trip - very different boat than a J92 - in a different hemisphere - incredible that both very conceived by the same designers/builders

 

The J90 is a real sport boat - the J92 is in the J105 camp

We straightened this out at least once before -

 

The light blue "Ragtime" is a J90 (formerly Rod Johnstone's) - it has never done a TransPac. Ryan Finn did one on another J90.

 

The dark blue "Ragtime!" is a J92 and has done the Singlehanded TransPac twice.

 

Both boats are currently for sale. PM me for details on the 92.

Christian must have thought he was on the Sportboat Anarchy board, where that kind of comment is expected.

 

In the 92's defense:

 

Ryan did the windy 2004 race in his J90, finishing 17th out of 25 boats with a corrected time of 12:06:11:30

In the lighter-air 2008 race, the J92 finished 3rd out of 23 boats with a corrected time of 12:01:19:24

 

YMMV

I'm crewing for ULDB guy in some midwinters. The boat is cherry, it's flipping gorgeous, it's got nice new North rags and a spiffy new mainsail cover and ULDB guy spends money on it like there's no tomorrow....divers on the bottom, multi gazillion dollar haulouts every year, etc.. If I had fifty bills I'D buy it.

 

Don't buy this boat. I'm having fun crewing on it.

Ha, thanks for bringing up good times Bob. In the J90's defense, my result had nothing to do with the boat and everything to do with my risky race strategy and my poor preparation, which led to three instances of masthead damage starting on the first day. They are very differant animals though, and having done it, I'd have a hard time recomending the J/90 over the 92 for a trip to Hawaii. It sounds like Ragtime is ready to go anywhere though.

Thanks, Ryan. You sailed a good race under the circumstances - I just couldn't let Christian's slam go without a response. When he has done a SH TransPac in his Viper we'll see what he says about singlehanding "sportboats" in the ocean.

 

Tuffy you're right of course, no comparison. Reminds me of the Ford(?) vs. Jaguar line in "Silver Streak."
