      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.

    6 Meters, Santana 20's, sailing eh?
  1. This is the mother ship http://www.charterworld.com/news/wp-content/uploads/2016/03/Lady-Christine-view1.jpg
  2. Genoa. Mains can be re-cut battens added etc etc . But new Genoas are the cats meow. I'm buying at least one this year as well .
  3. I am not seeing anything on the drawing that would lead me to believe there is an obstruction ( no details about reefs etc etc or other traffic) , the drawing looks like there is not enough room for red to clear a tack so if I'm yellow I'm going to tell red to piss off for now and try again next lap. If there were an obstruction put it on the fucking drawing.
  4. The primary issue is a carrier never goes anywhere alone so therein lies its limiting speed and range. The (surface ) Escort group needs fuel.
  5. this http://www.cruisemapper.com/images/news/content/Cunard-QM2.jpg
  6. Any six meters in those copies? St Francis V. ?
  7. You clearly don't know the history of this Cup which is surprising for someone with a Half Tonner! I get what you`re saying, but I don`t think too many people look at a 6 metre and think One Tonner. Most think of the heydays of the OTC (70`s and 80`s). For them, One Tonner usually means 27.5 IOR or maybe 30.5 IOR. No I look at my six meter and think 100+ years of yachting history. Also about five tons of very interesting sailing.
  8. spectra topping lift /backstay humming?
  9. On six meters the LP is J+ 3 Meters.....
  10. nope transom too skinny , see answers above...
  11. I think he was talking about Nolan Bushnell's Charley. That was Chuck Hawley that got Charley back to Honolulu after the keel fell off. There might have been some lead in the bilges of that one..
  12. The sole reason the 1-2 exists is for exactly this reason.
  13. The only one I can think of that would be good as a bilge pump is the Vac-U-flush but why bother when an actual Bilge pup version is available? Oily water typically is what does in Non-bilge bilge pumps.
  14. huey 2, what the hell is another sportboat doing in this thread? at least post a link so we can see wtf it is. but it aint a class 40.
  15. Dingy mast? Alu? Chop saw. The blade needs to be new and or very sharp. Wax the hell out of it , rub a piece of paraffin or cutting wax if you can find it. Block up the end so its nice and level and try a test cut first and check that its square....go slow and easy it's not a two by four.
