      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. Nice to see this thread as a former and fond owner of #10. Good to see the new owner "theblah" carrying the torch. Great boat, fun to sail. A weapon in light air. Hood River Nuking winds were a bit much for ANY sportboat so glad to see her in her new home.
  2. lol...are you kidding me, THAT can definitely wait! Classic!
  3. We will definitely be there! It IS of course the west coast championship! ...team 'rumblefish' is planning on Cgod as well! Congrats on CGOD. None of you i550 PDX guys can manage a race tomorrow in Hood River on the Rocket? I guarantee fun, It's a guarantee, How can you pass that up?
  4. @TeamGladiator et al PDX On another note, half our crew is out of town this week and we are looking for 1-2 more to sail this wed (Hood River Marina). Forecast is mid-20's which usually means 15-30 type range. If any of portland crew are intereted in sailing on a Rocket 22 tommorrow and can make boat call at 5:30, please PM me. Should be raining in PDX and sunny and beautiful out here. Thx, Chris
  5. @TeamGladiator Congrats, that's quite an accomplishment. Is CGOD still on the table or has that ship sailed?
  6. Very nice. I must say I have some lust going for this boat. That price was in striking range. I'm all for the 2011 version but am scared of what the price would be. that last photo was the best one yet. Really shows what she looks like, and moving well in not a lot of breeze.
  7. Yes it would! Can you tell us what town it is headed to?
  8. Beautiful! Love the paint job and color too. Whats' the point of the side tanks not extending all the way aft (being open aft)? Just wondering. Will she sit lower during a knockdown?
  9. This looks like a sweet boat. I've always wondered what the killer SB would look like that can survive in The Gorge. Is this it? I'm invested already. This looks cool though.
  10. Ah, really great backstory. Thanks for that. I'm imagining a pocket sized "Cone" at this point. Go the Cone!
  11. Looks interesting. What's the backstory?
  12. It just occurred to me that this guy may actually be brilliant. Here's the scenario. In the bay area you can't build shit on a lot without a major permitting process, zoning, hearings, inspections, the whole deal. BUT, you can build a boat with none of that. Call it a boat and live in your backyard or someone else's and you are all good. Maybe it's not designed to float. All you need is the story.
  13. Thousands of screws huh? Might want some epoxy on that.
  14. Thanks Jim, that's really interesting about the layup and core bonding.
  15. Saw this article and video on Rapid Transit. Hull lines look really similar. http://www.sail-world.com/index.cfm?Nid=77688&refre=y&ntid=0&rid=4
