      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. this time of year when a yard is in overdrive getting boats ready for the water and getting them launched sometimes they'll do primer outside if the weather forecast is agreeable and only take a boat inside for the actual top coats, not sure how hinckley/NEB do it but I've seen that done at a number of yards.
  2. you pretty much hit it on the head with that last sentence.
  3. correct me if I'm wrong Bob but they're basically a scaled down version of the cal 40 right?
  4. this one is near to me, cal 2-30 for $4850, good deal. I've always liked these boats. sailed on one a fir bit back home and they always seemed like a boat that was much quicker that one would expect judging from it's looks. https://maine.craigslist.org/boa/6124983262.html
  5. I'm guessing we're talking about brent swain.
  6. welcome to the world of megayachts and how fast they loose value, it's also common for yachts to be listed for sale even if the owner isn't actively trying to sell. I remember back in the day, when it took 3+ years to build a big Feadship. Rich guys had a new order in, even before taking delivery of the last order, because they could often sell the just delivered boat, for millions of profit, to a Saudi, who didn't want to wait the 3 years.. I once worked on a yacht were the owner had spent the better part of a year working with the design team to make the boat just exactly what he wanted, when I got on the boat it was about 9 months old and already he had decided the boat was no good, had listed it for sale and was working with a different naval architect on another boat. the superwealthy can be weird.
  7. seems like a good move for a race like transpac where it's almost entirely downwind. Re-weighted down yes for a light/mod down hill slide makes sense. BTW I don't think that is the OEM bulb? Didn't they change it in Italy pre going on the deck to go down for the 2015 S2H? certainly not the same bulb she had on her when she was launched, no idea what changes they made in italy though.
  8. That's the regular hinckley 41, and not the Competition 41 - the Competition 41 has the same hull but a spade rudder. same hull above the waterline but yes you're correct, the competition 41 does have a spade rudder, also has a taller rig and more ballast in the keel.
  9. seems like a good move for a race like transpac where it's almost entirely downwind.
  10. the hinckley competition 41 makes my pants tight. prettiest boat they ever made in my opinion, and one of the prettiest production boats ever. and it just makes the cut for this thread, I think they built them until 81.
  11. I inquired about that event a couple of years ago, and was told I'd likely be the only sailboat. it's in nantucket this year, I'm trying to decide if I feel like sailing 2 days down to nantucket an then 2 days back afterwards, for the same amount of time I could go up to penobscot bay ann enjoy the best coastal cruising int he country.
  12. I've been gone a few days, is BS still trying to convince us his sailing companions were a pack of hot 20 somethings?
  13. I admire people who sail where others don't and do quite a bit, myself. And this guy does know his boat(as I recall and see from the exhaust outlet in his counter, the engine wasn't running). I grabbed an aerial of the harbor and drew the route (I know the thoroughfares in Northeast H). Besides that this photo was taken during a less crowded time, it doesn't show how visually blocked the tight boats make the sailing. With a J-105, I imagine the turning is faster. My boat is similar to the Loki in the amount of room and time it takes to turn. I took the photo of the Loki at point X. There is a slight gamble running down here, that no dinghy or small motorboat will come darting out between the floating docks. But once out of this corridor, you could tack in front of the Morris Yacht marina, and head back out. This is a great spot for boat watching. Morris (at least before Hinckley bought them) sends their daysailers out for trials. This older photo shows the typical concentration of boats in mid season. If we'd been on this mooring (we're the wood mizzen), I could have had the shot of the yawl sailing along side DREAM, in the slot between the docks and moored boats. That would have been a keepah. That's a great shot. we Chartered "Eagle Wing" (Hinckley 41) for 10 days out of the Morris facility august 2014. Was our fist time sailing up that way. Had a fantastic time. On a side note Chartering with Morris was the most laid back event. I think our walk through before taking off lasted about 30 minutes. beautiful, I think the competition 41 is the prettiest sailboat hinckley has ever produced.
  14. I know we have a few hinckley owners on here, any of you planning on going to the hinckley owners rendezvous on nantucket? I'm thinking of sailing down from portland.
  15. It's not so much the boats are different, just the location. Some guys just don't want to be jetting back and forth to the Med. A lot easier to just sail in California, Mexico once in a while, transpacific when the mood strikes. A couple of these boats might even do Key West. frankly if this class and the TP52 class kinda each stayed in their respective corners it would be good for both classes, 52 super series does the east coast and the med the pac 52's dot he west coast, mexico, transpac/paccup S2H and maybe see the classes crossover a bit in key west it could be cool. sure as shit none of the current TP52's are tough enough for a S2H
