      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.

  10. We will do our best to earn your business. Will PM you with our best offer for these halyards/lines. Juan
  11. Hi DrewR, Our halyards calculator calls for a 10mm (3/8) genoa halyard for your boat. If the rope clucth is an 8-12mm one. Recommended: Vectran or Dyneema (tapered on both cases) with a Tylaska shackle. The 10mm provides you with better grip at the clutch and once the cover is stripped then the difference in diameter is minimum but with better load capacity. 8mm is ok (load wise) but over time once the cam gets tire then the smaller diameter tends to slip on the clutch not by a lot but enough to release tension on the luff (therefore making the the entry to flat and allowing the draft to move to far back). Check here for all Performance and Racing J-35 halyards Do not hesitate to give us a call us at 1-888-756-8883 if you would like to go over options or line alternatives. Happy sailing, Juan
  12. Hi Bastiat, Check here: Mauri Pro Canvas Shop - Mainsail Covers You can select them by style and boom lenght or you can check the following Rig Selection Guide to pick by your specific boat. Feel free to give us a call for any further assistance. Happy sailing! Juan Mauri
  13. Hi all, Saw the early post and let me be the first to apologize to JBSF for any trouble caused by an unusual situation. We got the order for a very unusual cam cleat that was backordered. Once the order was received (Aug. 18th.), our system trigger one first email to the customer with any backorder items. If there is no answer a second personal email follows (submit directly by one of Order Processing team members - Aug. 20th.). Unfortunately in this case it was like the perfect storm because there was no indication that there was a need to exchange the cam cleat for another option or delivered on an exact time frame. Since the order was posted as Free Shipping there was no indication of a "rush delivery" nor that the final destination was overseas. Still agree with JBSF that ten days usually is more than enough to deliver any order but as I mentioned the cam cleat ordered is a special one not a regular Harken or Ronstan one. Further more when something is backordered and we miss an US destination for an order going overseas, we will ship it directly to the final destination free of any shipping charge. Still in this case was our fault because we fail not to send a third email or try to reach JBSF by phone which is the regular procedure. As far as "In Stock" goes, our site does not post any message as "in or not in stock" as most of the time we will have it on hand or at any of our affiliate warehouses. As you can imagine it is almost impossible to consolidate all sailing products under one roof specially since we serve and offer not only regular products but large systems that require some assembly too. Me and my team are committed to do our best for all our customers across many wind and water sports. I am the first to accept that 99% of the time we get it right and 0.9% of the time we can fix it in time. This was not the case and it falls in that 0.1%. JBSF, let me try to make it right for you. Send us your address overseas, we will like to send you the cleats and deckvest free of charge. If in the future any one of you guys run into any trouble with any order or any issue with our website, please feel free to PM or send an email and address it to me (use our contact forms so we can monitor it). Even though our company has evolved into many other sports and activities I am still a die-hard sailor and want to do my best to serve the sailing community. On an upside note, hope one of you guys win the two tickets to Belize! Best regards, Juan Mauri
  14. Mauri Pro and Sunsail launch their first annual Whale Shark Flotilla with the Global FinPrint in Belize Press Release From April 21-30th, 2016 join Mauri Pro, the Global FinPrint and Sunsail for a Flotilla to experience the annual Whale Shark Migration while diving and snorkeling the untouched reefs of Belize. Mauri Pro and Sunsail are excited to announce the first ever Whale Shark Migration and Dive Flotilla which will take place from April 21-30th, 2016 in the beautiful waters of Belize. Having the ability to see the largest fish in the ocean in one of the most scenic of their natural habitats is a once in a lifetime experience for many cruisers and ocean lovers. We are very excited to be able to host this group with the presence of the Global FinPrint’s lead scientist Demian Chapman onboard. This week long charter is set to fall during the full moon as the cycle of the moon dictates the ideal window for observing these majestic giants during their move and the Sunsail base out of Placencia is a perfect place to begin this adventure. Due to the nature of the expedition we have arranged for a dive master to join the crew and will spend most time when the Whale Sharks aren’t in the area diving and snorkeling the pristine reefs around the many Cays of Belize. With the help of Mauri Pro and our friends at Roberts Grove diving outfitters we will have the opportunity for guests to dive on the reefs throughout the duration of the trip. This trip will include unique experiences which will be highlighted by the knowledgeable presence of Demian Chapman who says of the expedition, “The migration of whale sharks to Gladden Spit, Belize, around the spring full moons coincides with a great feeding opportunity as they consume the spawn released by thousands of reef fish. We are also interested in the possibility that this event attracts other, more predatory sharks which eat the spawning fish and look forward to investigating this as part of the Global FinPrint Project while educating the guests of the Flotilla along the way.” Some of the places the flotilla will stop include the often frequented by Whale Sharks’ Gladden Marine Reserve which is partially home to the longest barrier reef in the Western Hemisphere as well as the Silk Cayes and three offshore atolls ripe for exploring. Belize is at no loss for once in a lifetime experiences. “For Mauri Pro, this has been a long overdue opportunity for us to offer those who have yet to check this incredible journey off their bucket lists a chance to not only observe these gentle giants but to learn about them and explore Belize with the knowledge of both expert scientists and dive masters available throughout the journey. There is no better way to appreciate and protect the environment than by having a once in a lifetime experience with its majesty, we are honored to be able to help facilitate this for our charterers while helping progress the research of the Global FinPrint.” says, Juan Mauri of Mauri Pro Sailing. From September 1st through October 31st Mauri Pro will run a contest for one lucky winner and their guest to be on board the lead boat for this incredible journey with flights for two provided by Mauri Pro and accommodations provided by Sunsail.
