      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. there was one. its brother dave's boat.
  2. where, and what is your boat?
  3. there were carp swimming in the parking lot at apsc the other day.
  4. you are amazing dave. you sell your boat yet?
  5. geeze, tell me rejected,how does bob taste his own food with your head so far up his ass?
  6. A boat built in America, right. Like a bayliner? melges........tartan.......C&C.......hunter........come on, are you a Russian cyber scumbag ?What are you, a Trump supporter with your buy America shit. I would prefer buy Canadian , but C&C is now American owned.......why do you hate your country ? you can still buy a nice c&c. theres an old iconic classic on yacht world. bit overpriced at $425 000 cdn for a 46 year old 43 foot boat, but its a once in a life time chance to own a yacht of this level. she really defies adequate description.
  7. what the actual fuck? thats $600 cdn for a pair of faux dirty jeans? proof there is an idiot born every minute.
  8. Do you weigh your shits too? Nope. But everything else that goes on or comes off the boat gets weighed. and what do you weigh? are you totally fit? a have a buddy, he built himself a really nice carbon toilet seat, he bragged about how much weight it saved over the standard seat (and he was right.) problem is he was about 130 over weight. point is, if the boat were to be built today, even as a light boat, there would be a local reinforcement there. Seriously? Okay: I'm 6ft 4 and weigh 185. I can bench 5 reps at 1.2 my body weight. Cycled 92 miles in just over 4.5 hours last weekend. What are your numbers, wanker? But your advice to your friend, if you actually suggested he lose his own excess, was valid. As for your "point" it's meaningless. The thread is about how to effectively repair an O30 pipe berth track. Not how someone might build a boat now. I've actually done this repair on my own boat and one other. Have you? By the way, learn to use capitalization. mate.... you took that the wrong way. i wasn't calling you a fat cunt. as for me, ya im a middle aged fat cunt. i could stand to lose the 30 pounds ive put on since i quit smoking. ive not done this repair on an o30, but ive spent a bit of time putzing around with that sticky stuff.
  9. Do you weigh your shits too? Nope.

  10. he should check out C&C 43's on Yachtworld.com.......perfect Bruckmann customs for him.......and with the Cdn dollar they are almost free to him. I see yours is still for sale. Isn't $320K US a little steep? Maybe that's why it's still for sale... welcome back dave. im back in town for a bit, care to go for a beer? i can just pop up to yours if you like.
  11. fixed
  12. Find a fellow Canadian who is making a living off any type of sailing and ask them what they did.
  13. become a kiwi. or maybe an ausie. pretty fucking hard to get any where as a canadian in this trade.
  14. http://tomcatboats.com/tc_62_overview/
  15. so.... what do you guys do with your plastic (read non Egyptian cotton) sails when you are done with them? sailing isnt really that green.
