      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.

    Changes every time I get on a boat
  1. The owner of a boat i race on tends to buy a bunch cigars for most races. Problem is 5 or 6 get smoked and the others end up getting tossed in a drawer and we all know how shitty of an environment a boat is for a cigar. So by the next week or two they get pretty tired. So i ordered one of those small Cigar Caddy plastic 10 cigar travel humidors so I don't need to pick pieces of crumbling tobacco off of the charts. Of course after I ordered it I started thinking it's probably a snake oil type device that's going to work for a week (but hey it's rescue orange and will at least look cool.) Anyone have a experience with these or have a working solution.
  2. Glass lenses. They shatter but don't scratch. I used to go through a pair of sunglasses every few months because I ended up scratching the shit out of them. Or use them as eye protection when sanding or using the grinder. A friend who runs a gun shop happens to be a retailer for Costa Del Mar and convinced me to buy the glass ones, "significantly discounted" to try out. They have lasted more than a year and I only have one tiny scratch. I leave these things to float around in my duty bag with no case and let them slide around the dash. Lenses are Incredible but the frame hinges got really loose and won't tighten up. After owning a pair I would definatly pay full retail instead of a $40 pair of plastic ones ever again.
  3. OD is typically the day after graduating rehab/getting out of prison.
  4. Yea but it's 2017. I should be able to post tit pics full sized.
  5. What can be done here so I can snap a photo with my IPhone and upload it like most other forums. Kinda stinks having to crop everything.
  6. You usually use the same size roller for everything. Thickness of the kiwigrip depends on what type of spreader you use. Your typical notched square like the west system 809 has 1/8, 3/16 and 1/4. 1/8s will be a thin fine coat with small dimples, 1/4 is thick and aggressive depending on temperature when it's rolled. i used 3/16ths on my J80 over my recore job, and I'm hoping that 3/16ths thickness will hide the stress cracks as the 1/8ths will not.
  7. Personally I hope that the numbers of registered boats continues to shrink and the cost of the damn things come down. I just turned 26 and bought a J80 for PHRF and one design as I couldn't reasonably afford anything in the $$$/Fun scale. I would love to see something affordable for me in the larger inboard racer cruiser catagory like a quest 30, J105, etc. But I don't anticipate that happening anytime soon.
  8. A Catboat upwind.
  9. Finished recoring both chain plates and around almost everything bolted thru the deck on my J80. The previous owner believed that KiwiGrip would seal everything adequately. I admit I am surprised that it did succeed in sealing a pair of cam cleats, but other than that a total soup sandwich. So now I'm ready to roll on new kiwigrip. Waiting for a day without rain or wind blowing crap all over the boat...
  10. Get the photo printed on one of those metal prints for him before someone else does. The colors look better than real life and make that photo look surreal. We all know that firefighters have an unusual passion for collecting work related pictures and antique gear, can't go wrong.
  11. Thinking of buying this pair. Probably would give me that hands on weekend warrior image. Maybe a tad pricey. But better than my epoxy and oil covered workpants. http://m.shop.nordstrom.com/s/prps-barracuda-straight-leg-jeans/4457245?origin=category-personalizedsort&fashioncolor=INDIGO What do you guys think? http://insider.foxnews.com/2017/04/25/nordstrom-charging-425-fake-mud-jeans-mike-rowe-social-media-reacts
  12. Surprising how warm a thin pair of rubber gloves are. In the fall when I'm working on the truck, boat, or welding I usually wear a pair on cold days.
  13. Percy Fawcett, Cmon man how did you die? Head used as a soup bowl? Bitten by a fer-de-lance? Malaria?
  14. The origins of the mystery part are still unknown. Furler and swivel check out. At this point I'm wondering if it came out of the tool bag or one of the riggers dropped it.
  15. What's the difference between Tim Tebow and Aaron Hernandez?? Hernandez knew when to hang it up...
