      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.

  1. it's to hard to have all of that sails, but as you said it's a bit expensive we will have: new main 133 sqm (dacron or aramid) new genoa 160 sqm (dacron or aramid) new gennaker (will be rolled, and we have to put some changes in top of mast) 290 sqm new inside jib 45 sqm (dacron or aramid) and we made refit of old sails: main (dacron) genoa superflanker (twin head sails) runner (spinnaker) storm trysail storm jib and we have got also old main (yellow one, that which you can see on pics from 1984) and 5 more sails. so we will see how fast will be! In our working schedule we've got sailing test in October. for sure I let you know how is going. and also in next week I will put some actual pics.
  2. no, it will be short length battens in main. bad?
  3. it's done, sea valves are coming to europe. In this moment I order gennaker, main, genoa and inside (small) gib. I made refit of super flanker and spinnaker and few others sails which was on board.
  4. Hi, I need to buy special sea valve which are available only in USA and NZ (also I have to put new shaft seal but I found it France). so my question is: is it here someone which is coming to Europe in next week and could help me? I'm asking because normal shipment is coming to Europe more than 3 weeks and I don't want make so long break. (It will be great if someone could pick it up to Europe. after that I could send driver which deliver this part from somewhere in Europe to Poland, but as I wrote above, I can't wait more than 3 weeks for normal shipment from USA to Europe, it is to long) best for you. On board I order few new sails. I will try to put some profiles of new sails. in next week cos I haven't it now.
  5. So, today I have got some question about sails and rigging. EVERYBODY HOW KNOWS SOMETHING ABOUT MAST, RIGGING AND SAILS... Check it and please send to me some tips. 1. Did you use the sensor of tension on the back stay and stay. Do you have got any information about it. (nowa days on boat is no panels and electrical cable, and I'm thinking that those sensors could be important to sailing. Should I refit that sensors? Are they important? 2. How big (sq m) was your super flanker (twin head sail) and spinnaker and is it here someone how use it after 2002? (after changing mast) 3. How high was original mast (from deck to top), I'm not sure that "new" mast (from 2002) is enough good, high and strong for those sails. 4. On board we have got few extra booms. One of them is in two pieces and it is made from aluminium, this length is about 30 ft. When did you used it? Did you used it only to super flanker? 4.1 which booms did you used to super flanker. 5. and another extra boom is made from carbon fiber, did you used to spinnaker? this one is little bit shorter than that one with two pieces. 6. and last one, the smallest one also made from aluminium. the smallest one is about 6 ft 7. If you have got any tips about mast, rigging and sails, please just write, maybe it will be very necessary tips for me and for new Sassy best for you, woj "polish sailor" I put some pics which are agreeable with my question.
  6. Hi, welcome back after small break. again, first, I would like send great thanks to all of you. for helping me with this project. and now: *Monkey, stayoutofthemiddle: It's hard to say what is it (that small part on the end of bulb keel) but for sure it isn't anode (because it is made from brass not from zinc. So I expect that is something to grounding, or ass you said it is something to protect the shape of bulb keel. (if I understood you correctly) *Bob@ydl.co.nz, I'm happy of that, it's great that people want make repair older boats and make it great again. I think that they have got much more money to do this than me but I'm not afraid, and I'm going to do this as good as I want and can. *@last, thank you for that one more stories, It's great. *billy backstay , ok, so, thank you, And I found something like a toe rail. so probably they do the same on Sassy as you on Boomerang. *frozenhawaiian, hi, also in Poland is good time to do refit. It's just beginning of the season but the weather is great and we can wok on fresh air. *Archytec, Thank you for those pics, it's great to see it. *Cal20Sailor again great story, it's incredible in next post I put some new question. check it out!
  7. the question is. 1. What is this small part of the ending of bulb keel. and what is their function. This part is made from brass (probably) and is very small just few centimeters and it is screw in end of bulb keel. check it on photo. Is it something to grounding? 2. How many anodes did you have on it. Did you have only one anode on propeller shaft? and when you was mooring in marina did you put some additional anode on metal line from board. woj.
  8. thank for quick respond and check (If you want) two more question in next post. * Turd Sandwich, dopo: you've got right about this man overboard staff. thank you. * FINS, thank you and check the situation in next month. * Archytec, thank you for your stories, and some pics. I write it down and download. maybe you can sail on it again in future. * Cal20Sailor, thank you for this a bit scary story, from your point of few. I hope you could enjoy this yacht after refit. woj.

  11. decide to polish/grind whole hull not only pieces, now we are doing hull above waterline. this is our method of working: 1 st man is removing a coat of varnish 2 nd man is removing a palette knife 3 rd man is polishing last layer before aluminium [woj]

I've got on fore hatch one of those number which meaning two different things depend in which database you check. even now, this number is disappear from last documents. but I have also this second number (under the engine). It will be ok, but someone made mistake in past. btw.

Thank you, Sir. * Great Red Shark, we do as much as possible. and I think that I'm strong * Gutterblack, Twolegged, sunseeker, Al Paca, Bill E Goat, so it will be nice project and the sails are in order, btw. it's hard to talk about money on forum but if you want you can be a founder or sponsor think about it. our working deadline is someday in August. * dyslexic dog, if you can find some photos it will be great thank you. * Cal20sailor, thank you for a part of history. all of information are good for me. * 1sailor, of course I didn't order so much sails that was in 1984.

I will put new photos in next 15 minutes (I have to take it) woj.
  13. EASY and VERY IMPORTANT!!! Who of you saw the hull identification number (HIN) and where exactly is it? Where (on the boat/hull) I can find HIN, I've got problem with customs search of a ship because they don't believe me that this is this yacht and they have to see this number on the hull. WM
  14. Hi, everyone. So. Has anyone got any diagrammatic drawing of all hydraulic on boat? and how knows about the major accomplishments of this boat. I would like make also the chronological history of this boat and people who was sailing on it. I want make memorial. If somebody has got the private photos which is difficult to find in internet please send it. I show lot of photos but maybe somebody has got any more from deck. (all of photos which was in old thread I saw) Thank you for all of good wishes and keeping your finger crossed on this project. * Slick470, thank you, of course I read whole ole thread. * Happie Jack, Yes, it's good idea to chose the more important post from old thread and put it here. * ThijsK, Thank you, I will check it. * RKoch, what mean gear failures? The gearing of winches? * Geff, Burtas, Ropetrick, Mad, Rejected, Thank you, it will be good time no one knows everything but together we know a lot. so I would like to collect our knowledge about this boat. best for us.

  15. Hello all of Sailors who knows and like Sassy I'm new member here, and I'm the new owner of Sassy. I'm writing this post due to make Sassy again great boat. I had taken Sassy from Sardegna in Italy and now I have it in Poland, and it has been on dry dock since yesterday. I started making big renovation, the plan is: clean whole hull and deck and put all layers from the beginning, put a new sails, new pipes, lines, and electrical cables, whole electronic. Generally almost everything will be new or renovated. I'm writing to you because I'm looking for any information about boat, and I'm looking for people which was sailing on it from the beginning in regatta to write down the history of Sassy and find some tips. I read all on this forum but last topic is archived. I want make it again as good as I can imagine. For sailing all around world and much more. I want start in regatta Sydney-Hobart and others. so could you help me? will be with me on this project? my mail: wojciechmadej.wm@gmail.com for all of you I will put lot of new photos during our working. and after that. And everybody whose like/know/love old Sassy could enjoy it again. For sure we can meet somewhere on the world in future on boat. btw, I'm so interesting to talk (during our meeting in future) about yours party in 1987 after race. it's sound like a legend. best regards Wojciech Madej from Poland.
