      A Few Simple Rules   05/22/2017

      Sailing Anarchy is a very lightly moderated site. This is by design, to afford a more free atmosphere for discussion. There are plenty of sailing forums you can go to where swearing isn't allowed, confrontation is squelched and, and you can have a moderator finger-wag at you for your attitude. SA tries to avoid that and allow for more adult behavior without moderators editing your posts and whacking knuckles with rulers. We don't have a long list of published "thou shalt nots" either, and this is by design. Too many absolute rules paints us into too many corners. So check the Terms of Service - there IS language there about certain types of behavior that is not permitted. We interpret that lightly and permit a lot of latitude, but we DO reserve the right to take action when something is too extreme to tolerate (too racist, graphic, violent, misogynistic, etc.). Yes, that is subjective, but it allows us discretion. Avoiding a laundry list of rules allows for freedom; don't abuse it. However there ARE a few basic rules that will earn you a suspension, and apparently a brief refresher is in order. 1) Allegations of pedophilia - there is no tolerance for this. So if you make allegations, jokes, innuendo or suggestions about child molestation, child pornography, abuse or inappropriate behavior with minors etc. about someone on this board you will get a time out. This is pretty much automatic; this behavior can have real world effect and is not acceptable. Obviously the subject is not banned when discussion of it is apropos, e.g. talking about an item in the news for instance. But allegations or references directed at or about another poster is verboten. 2) Outing people - providing real world identifiable information about users on the forums who prefer to remain anonymous. Yes, some of us post with our real names - not a problem to use them. However many do NOT, and if you find out someone's name keep it to yourself, first or last. This also goes for other identifying information too - employer information etc. You don't need too many pieces of data to figure out who someone really is these days. Depending on severity you might get anything from a scolding to a suspension - so don't do it. I know it can be confusing sometimes for newcomers, as SA has been around almost twenty years and there are some people that throw their real names around and their current Display Name may not match the name they have out in the public. But if in doubt, you don't want to accidentally out some one so use caution, even if it's a personal friend of yours in real life. 3) Posting While Suspended - If you've earned a timeout (these are fairly rare and hard to get), please observe the suspension. If you create a new account (a "Sock Puppet") and return to the forums to post with it before your suspension is up you WILL get more time added to your original suspension and lose your Socks. This behavior may result a permanent ban, since it shows you have zero respect for the few rules we have and the moderating team that is tasked with supporting them. Check the Terms of Service you agreed to; they apply to the individual agreeing, not the account you created, so don't try to Sea Lawyer us if you get caught. Just don't do it. Those are the three that will almost certainly get you into some trouble. IF YOU SEE SOMEONE DO ONE OF THESE THINGS, please do the following: Refrain from quoting the offending text, it makes the thread cleanup a pain in the rear Press the Report button; it is by far the best way to notify Admins as we will get e-mails. Calling out for Admins in the middle of threads, sending us PM's, etc. - there is no guarantee we will get those in a timely fashion. There are multiple Moderators in multiple time zones around the world, and anyone one of us can handle the Report and all of us will be notified about it. But if you PM one Mod directly and he's off line, the problem will get dealt with much more slowly. Other behaviors that you might want to think twice before doing include: Intentionally disrupting threads and discussions repeatedly. Off topic/content free trolling in threads to disrupt dialog Stalking users around the forums with the intent to disrupt content and discussion Repeated posting of overly graphic or scatological porn content. There are plenty web sites for you to get your freak on, don't do it here. And a brief note to Newbies... No, we will not ban people or censor them for dropping F-bombs on you, using foul language, etc. so please don't report it when one of our members gives you a greeting you may find shocking. We do our best not to censor content here and playing swearword police is not in our job descriptions. Sailing Anarchy is more like a bar than a classroom, so handle it like you would meeting someone a little coarse - don't look for the teacher. Thanks.

      Moderation Team Change   06/16/2017

      After fifteen years of volunteer moderation at SA, I will no longer be part of the moderation team. The decision to step aside is mine, and has been some time in the works but we did not wish to announce it in advance for a number of reasons. It's been fun, but I need my time back for other purposes now. The Underdawg admin account will not be monitored until further notice, as I will be relinquishing control of it along with my administrative privileges. Zapata will continue on as a moderator, and any concerns or issues can be directed to that account or to the Editor until further notice. Anyone interested in helping moderate the forums should reach out to Scot by sending a PM to the Editor account. Please note that I am not leaving the community, I am merely stepping aside from Admin responsibilities and privileges on the site.

  1. Rig the boat and make sure all the parts and pieces are there and secure. Be mindful of how you are going to maneuver around the pilothouse when you are on the water. Funny little things tend to foul as soon as you cannot reach them quickly and then it becomes multiplicative. Maybe sail around with just the main the first few times on a calm day and find a friend that can help. Enjoy the rum. Spending time and money messing around with boats is a great joy for some reason.
  2. Jet Nice photo of your boat. I have not seen one with the window application. Looks good. Liked the black stanchions also. I noticed you have the motor mounted aft instead of the well. Did you remove the well? We have been considering this and finding a way to place storage of the motor below and over the keel. Idle hands and all. Its a fun boat. Cheers!
  3. Mark - we can beta test for you with the RD logo on a light grey background (exactly like the shirts) and the flag with grommets. It would be cool to have snaps or something around the forestay so the grommets dont get punished by the tension from the halyard. I need to order hats anyway.
  4. I have done it on our boat with a couple guys balancing the boat down low. The boat is tippy. Put the backstay on too and tie off to more than one halyard. What are you doing up the mast? Might be easier to pull the mast.
  5. people do it all the time. if you are patient and have the money and find THE boat... then go for it.
  6. I think you solved it right there....just look around. when I die I expect to find her laughing.
  7. AIS tracker shows Med Man and a few other boats.
  8. Crew of Two Around Catalina with my friend Ben - night - pitch black out on backside of the island - flying the masthead asym on the Mumm 30 - song is stuck in the player on repeat with no way to change it because we have our hands full ripping along. Damn fun and good times.
  9. Dude - that is gross. Funny - but if that happened to me I would have to go for the technicolor yawn. Then the video would be really funny. blech
  10. life sucks - get a helmet.
  11. Light air on Sun with mixed up seas and swell running sounds like so much fun with 3 boats per class on the line for Newport.
  12. Tragic so ugly and unfortunate. a group of drunk monkeys could design a better boat. You could buy a whole fleet of M32 or C&C 30's, upgrade a tanker and have your own one design shit show to take all over the world with that much coin. plenty of hookers and blow for everyone AND money left over for beer.
  13. Take it to PA!
  14. J125 Light, easy to sail with my family, still good chance to win, big enough to do more than coastal races, place to sleep and cook something reasonable down below, dont need to buy 17 sandwiches. Ah to dream.
  15. Big Beautiful Boom. Hietarios Apparently in San Diego
