      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. Just imagine where we'd be if the SB3s and Vipers were built somewhere else. LOL....true Teener. We've not been able to crack any market in the EU/UK on Viper...we've sold a lot of K6's though. Just starting up the line for another round. It seems the Euro market is more dinghy prone and they just prefer different boats...mere speculation on my part. LOTS of SB3's sold though...go figure. I'd be interested to hear some of the Europeans feedback on this issue about what boats are and are not popular there and why. The sb3's sold because they were sold hard and the boats where there. Laser did a great campaign to get them in everyone's face They were lighter, cheaper + easier to trail and needed less crew that the j80 and 1720 gap that they fitted into. Now they've attained critical mass like oppies, you cant consider anything else because nobody sails anything else!! The problem with a viper, k6, vxone in the uk is you have to hike! You buy a keelboat because your passed it and cant hike anymore, right?!!
  2. those pictures of the lifting keel setup that were mentioned a while ago, they would be nice
  3. Please can you stop asking stupid questions before using the internet for what it was designed for. If you have followed this thread you will know who is making these boats so if you navigate to www.google.com and search for "gp26", if your lucky and you find their website they might also have some pictures of the builts, one of which has the clutches, im not going to tell you though. Good luck, the internets a big place
  4. I noticed in the video there is a lot of play/movement of the tiller arm, where is that coming from?
  5. thanks for the reply. will check that out.
  6. hey guys, this is sorta a hijack but rekon all the relevant ppl will look in here! Im interested in building an i550 im in the uk and so far as i can tell its gonna be a horrendously cheap way of getting myself a fast sports boat but i have a few queries about costings and stuff. I have looked and read most of the i550 blogs on the .org website. waterproof patterns how is this different from the plans? is it worth me buying in states n shipping or could i just buy plans and print them out here? Alchemy in the blog mentioned he bought his rig from http://www.ctech.co.nz/ do any of the other boats sport such a sexy rig? Who has made sails for the boats that have a sail plan at the moment? I could go with a local sail maker but if one of the big companies have made a few it might be worth going with the trend and gain from everyone else's refinements! how many boats have now gone with the extended cockpit design? does anyone use pbo rigging? it gives me the horn ive got it all over my rs600 pm me if you wanna get in touch or just reply here i will check up on this thread
