      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. I bought a small 12v to 5v converter to run it.
  2. Thanks for the information IStream. These photos show the problem I was having with the HDMI out of a Raymarine eS128 going into a mk1 SeaLine display. I finally found this scaler/converter that fixed the problem. https://www.blackbox.com/en-us/store/Detail.aspx/HDMI-to-VGA-Scaler-and-Converter-with-Audio/AVSC-HDMI-VGA

  4. You're a god damned genius. The shop is only 30 minutes away and the guy will do it for $35. PM Sent
  5. I quit 14 years ago. Smoked for 10 before that. The Mrs. and I quit at the same time. I didn't want to let her down and she didn't want to let me down. It was Spring and I couldn't keep patches stuck to me due to sweating. I used Zyban and was pretty grumpy for being on an antidepressant. It's hard but one of the best things you can do for your health. Be selfish, do it for yourself. You can't do it for someone else.
  6. The minimum bid is down to $25,000. Deadline is 04/19/2016. Hurry up and get your bid in. http://www.cooperss.com/1-3-30565-Carrol-Marine-Farr-CM-60
  7. From Trade Only Today http://www.tradeonlytoday.com/2016/01/gunboat-international-will-be-sold-at-auction/ Gunboat International will be sold at auctionPosted on January 18th, 2016Written by Reagan Haynes Gunboat International, a manufacturer of luxury carbon fiber sailing catamarans, is headed to auction. The motion in bankruptcy court comes after owner and founder Peter Johnstone, who is from a family of sailboat builders, filed for Chapter 11 restructuring in November. Gunboat can entertain what is called a “stalking horse bidder,” according to court documents — a viable initial bid on the business that would seek to avoid low bids by other interested parties. “The debtor seeks to sell the assets free and clear of all liens, claims, encumbrances, interests and any other rights,” said court documents filed in U.S. Bankruptcy Court in the Eastern District of North Carolina, where Gunboat is based. Last month Johnstone told Trade Only that the company was poised to rebound. Court documents said Gunboat had between 100 and 199 creditors and assets of $1 million to $10 million. A list of the largest 20 creditors amounted to roughly $6,025,845 million in claims, and documents filed in December showed that unsecured claims against the company totaled $10,133,947.32. Johnstone said in announcing the Chapter 11 restructuring that it had been “a perfect storm of adverse business circumstances, mistakes and disputes.” Leading the list of challenges was the legal dispute between Gunboat and Hudson Yacht and Marine Industries, a Chinese builder Gunboat contracted to build the 60 and subsequently sued. Gunboat alleges in court documents that HYM never did some work and that the yard refused to pay warranty claims on other poorly constructed yachts. Gunboat also accuses HYM of breach of contract, fraudulent inducement, interference with contractual relations, unjust enrichment, breach of a non-compete agreement and misappropriation of trade secrets. Court documents accuse the company and its owner of launching a “knockoff brand” of carbon fiber catamarans despite signing a non-compete contract. The issues prompted Gunboat to spend thousands out of pocket to fix the problems, according to the complaint. HYM has denied the allegations, filed a countersuit and blames Gunboat for the problems. Court documents also said there had been cost overruns. “The debtor began to experience financial problems as a result of cost overruns in the manufacture of its 55-foot series, with the costs for design and manufacture of the first yachts produced in this series exceeding the sale price for some of the yachts under construction,” documents said. “While later yachts in the 55-foot series were profitable, the debtor was unable to recoup sufficient proceeds from the later 55-foot yachts to offset the earlier 55-foot models. This led to the termination of several contracts that were in various stages of production.” Also on Johnstone’s list of troubles was a G4 capsize in April and a recent photo boat collision during a magazine boat test in Annapolis, which Johnstone said has “thwarted” sales of the series. The third problem that he said led to the Chapter 11 filing was the abandonment of Rainmaker by her owner and crew, which was “certainly not helpful to the new series,” Johnstone said.
