      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.

    Did I mention the sailing?
  1. Greetings from Palma… So what do we have lurking here on the dock today? Let’s start with the lovely BARTELLI II, currently under brokerage with Hoek Just opposite lying from her is the super pretty AGNETHA. And at the top of the tree is MiSSY…. The Vitters most recent hatchling masterpiece. The wrap around stern teak feature particularly pleasing in the flesh, though for me not so sure about its sculptural texture wrap on the topside saloon top. Next stop St. Trop… (As you were)
  2. “There’s no hiding from this son…”
  3. Nice touch from Mrs. Ainslie, in this month’s BOAT Int' mag… (Lest we overlook the human costs of what a campaign like this takes) If Ben delivers first year out, what an awesome achievement!! Go get em’ Land Rover BAR..
  4. The tunnel is to make the future transits of that Nogwegian lee-shore coastline safer... change is coming, accelerating.... One imagines too, the Nogs will allow for the extra 7m of headroom required end of century.... think of Bergen as being the new Côte d'Azur come the uber sunny summers of 2040... https://www.newscientist.com/article/mg23431200-300-a-year-in-the-new-arctic-regime/
  5. Am late to the party on this one, first-off great project to be working on Mr. Perry, look forward to the splash-down pictures. Retro and Explorer style are defo current themes on the MV design score… seems the Miami Vice 80s mega white gin-palace has become very passé The style conscious floaty folk of Berlin, defo want to be seen in something with heritage Klink und Krüger’s – Schnellboot comes to mind. Wooden tops can’t beat em… for oozing class I think its powered by a straight 8.... what a noise!
  6. The NWP seems to be the new go-to crusing zone... Gawd knows how many will chug through come mid July-Sept... gettin' as busy as the Washington Beltway... last year the Perini-Navi SY Rosehearty went did it a loop of it.... More concerning is the raft of cruise ships going this summer 2017.....if one of those goes Costa Concordia, it will swamp the local innut populations... oh dear? Balance people, checks and balances.... For those interested in current ice watching.... click here: http://www.ec.gc.ca/glaces-ice/
  7. Hawkeye going in pink, neigh dark.... phew that's quite the approach speed... Let's do it again....
  8. Once yer credibility's blown.... time to walk the plank.......
  9. Yes iStream... well spotted....I think from memory we'd had some slippage on a swivel.....much fiddling with allen keys the next day on dock....lol
  10. While I was living in Norway... my regular ride was a Hanse495.... Us double-handed enroute to Utsira, ja det kan være sol der oppe! Our mooring neighbours (Dutch) in the harbour had spotted us incoming so snapped our rig set. They joked they knew we were not locals.... can't think why?
  11. This is apparently a concept titled 'Dare to dream'...... "Say no more guv', likes a bit-o-mystery at sea does she!?!"
  12. Here's the vid of the shed haul out.... I think I'm with Cap'n Perry on this one - not sure its €200m+ best spent - I'm sure the owner loves it....lol A few metres shorter is Freivokh's Stilleto concept, methinks if it ever floats and hooks in next to M/V Jubilee..... oh dear.
  13. When A V A finally arrives I suspect her chess playing moves will be awesome,.... no cookies, frozen or otherwise required...
  14. Some travel options/costs Kidkodine...Eire to NL.... https://www.rome2rio.com/s/Dublin/Hoek
