Forum rules
Please, do not post your actual email address (except to register) in public websites.

New members may not post until approved. The forum is about Marinette Owners and other aluminum boat boaters who wish to share boating information. Aluminum Roamer and other metal boat owners are also welcome. (Do not post content you do not have the right to post and mass (robots) posters are unwelcome.)

You are required to describe your boat in sentences and where you boat (what rivers or location) in registration. Boat name is required, Owner first name is required, as well as a text description of the boat with a qualitative statement (likes and don't likes). And finally write something you like or dislike about the ISP, phone or internet company or service you use. This information is not made public. Example: We (Bobby and Sox) have a 375 foot Marinette named the USS Enterprise with 38,500 KW twin diesels. It as 200 staterooms and one bathroom. I don't like the amount of Glenfiddich Single Malt that I have to use in the engines to thin out the diesel mix. I mainly boat in the Southern Ocean around Ross Island. I use Herizon.net as my ISP but they are slow.

Companies : You can post periodically, if you are a company selling a product that Marinette owners would be interested in. Those posts must contain content. Please don't abuse the email addresses you may acquire.

Copyright: State by what permission, you copy any content to post and accredit the owner properly. No posting stuff you do not have rights to, not even cartoons you don't have the right to copy. I will try to post more information soon. We have space for pictures on the new location. PLEASE post in the appropriate folder. Please, do not post your actual email address in publicly readable websites. No, we are not faceb00k, so pithy wisdom not related to boats is not welcome. We respect copyright.

Posting : Nothing offensive - It's a boat forum, only. Nothing I wouldn't want my mother to see. Sheesh!. No deeply off color jokes, references or names.
Rule 1) As in our prior forum - Be a class act. If you don't know what that is ... don't come here.
Rule 2) Copyright is respected - don't post without the rights to post the content.
Rule 3) It's about boats - specifically our boats, water and people (boaters). Not politics, religion, sex or charity. Emails, calls, and posts are included in this. DON'T POST POLITICAL, RACIST, OR SEXIST JOKES, I don't care ... it's a private site. Don't PM them and don't share them through emails using the forum. Don't sell anything but boat stuff and no soliciting using the forum emails you may acquire.
Rule 4) You must have a first name, valid email address and location, and Boat Info. You will not be granted access without boat info either describing your aluminum boat in detail or explaining in detail why you need to be here. (You don't need to own one, but explain then why you are part of the forum). Put the description in the signature.
Rule 5) No flaming, we respect opinions but no flames.
Rule 6) If you do offend, apologize (at least for the misunderstanding). Hold no grudges and have no grudge held against you. Whether or not you do forgive is up to you, but we will be Marinette owners for a long time. You probably will be on this forum for a while, it's a good neighbor policy.
.
My tolerance for rule enforcement depends upon your classiness and following the above rules.

BTW : Yes, marinettejoe (marinetteman) and the admins are not responsible for the opinions, content or advice of the site. I am the site owner. Go away if you are not a boater or interested in boats. Contact any admin if a post offends you or you have content posted that is yours. This isn't the place to discuss the president unless the topic is germane to Marinette boats.
------------------------- -----------------------
As forum owner, I have limit I set for the display name and texts. The forum follows the polite company rule of no coarseness or deeply vulgar topics. Politics are discouraged except related to boats. On vulgarity, I don't care if it's the boat's name or your dog's name, don't post, PM, or email crass statements. I regret I will ask those who violate this to please change your display name. You will be given a week to do so.

Signed marinetteman

On names:

I will paraphrase from the DMV Virginia guidelines for personalized license plates. I don't care if you really named your boat that... don't post it here.

I will not approve an application for a personalized name if the requested name contains any combination of characters that in any way carries a connotation which may reasonably be seen by a person viewing the name as:

1. Profane, obscene, or vulgar in nature.
2. Sexually explicit or graphic.
3. Excretory related.
4. Used to describe intimate body parts or genitals.
5. Used to describe drugs, drug culture, or drug use illegal in any part of the US. (Not fair that I don't include alcohol and tobacco? Probably, but my site is publicly seen.)
6. Used to condone or encourage violence. (It's not the place to promote any violence.)
7. Used to describe illegal activities or illegal substances.
8. Socially, racially, politically, or ethnically offensive or disparaging.

Thank you
