      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.

    Lake Champlain. Then Annapolis. Now Nor Cal
  1. Top pick inshore, Open570. Top pick offshore, Antrim27 or Farr30. Take some rides. Get to know the races you want to do. If I had the cash, I'd go Farr30 for OYRA, Party Curiut, and SSS stuff. For me, there isn't an OD that fits the racing I like around here besides the Moore. I just am not comfy on a Moore. I'm like a bear at the curcus on a bike on one of them.
  2. I totally agree on all points!
  3. I'd rather a powered up boat and reef in 20 than a shit can that can't move in sub 10kn. Just sayin.
  4. Pretty effin cool. Any reason why nobody's trying to hike it flat?
  5. If I were back east, I'd def convince an owner or two into it.
  6. Someday, I'll own one.....
  7. I always thought those cockpits were rad. Anyone know how many were built with it? Only a few, right?
  8. That's kinda what I was thinkin with the taller frac rig on a 35 in my post above.
  9. I always thought a taller frac carbon rig (no checks) and only running non overlapping head sails would be cool for short handing. I really love the 35's but it seems you could do some work to em to make em easier to single hand. Is that dumb? I donno. I'd just hate to be single handing and having to do a heavy 1 to 3 peal at 230 in the morning in weather.
  10. I was thinking it'd be cool to have the late J35/J33 cockpit. I've always thought I'd want that if I went with a J35 of my own.
  11. Didn't know there was one in 35's.
  12. Phil's living in Fargo right now. Shit you not, I just saw him post on his Facebook that the daytime high is neg ten tomorrow.
  13. The guy that owned the C&C99 Bzing bought her and is doing a pretty major refit.. or so I've been told.. I think you'd be hard pressed to find any 35's that weren't rode hard for a few years. They all show battle scars by now.. Well, I replaced some of the main sheet hardware almost 10 years ago now and when I pulled the old stuff out lots o punky ply came out with it. You'll find giant backing plates under the secondary winches too. Kind of bandaids on cancer. I loved the old girl though! When I herd she got sold to Nappy, I texted some old crew mates from her about it. I got several replies saying that the new owner would be surprized to hear how many chicks were banged on her. Kind of a floating bordello in her day. I've seen the cockpit completely filled Labatt Blues/Miller High Lifes, Mout Gay bottles, or completely filled with empties. Only to have a very hung over crew kick a chick off the boat and clean it up lickity fuckin tick before the owner shows up. She provided very amaving times for almost 25 years on Lake Champlain. He sent me some pics of the refit.. he's yanked out the whole interior and is starting over. pulled out about 200 lbs of soggy core so far. a lot of it out of the transom.. he's got muller doing the heavy stuff and some of it himself. should turn out to be a pretty sound boat. I'll probably give him a couple old sails to get started with. Bump--your J/35 started life as Kaleidoscope -before it was Split-Decision. Kerry Klingler (UK/Halsey) and his dad raced her out of City Island. We raced against her on Runaway, which is still on the hard at Consolidated Yachts in City Island. I wanted to buy Runaway for years and get the Hustler crew back on the J/35--but the owner is still cruising her occaisionally with his kids and is content to let her rot away--such a shame. the 1998 BIRW was awsome--28 boats on the starting line--it was the 1 design place to be! Pit, you ever race against Mohawk Warrior? Owned by Doc Gorman? Blue boat.... absolutely--great bunch of guys--one of the crew was an actual member of the Mohawk Nation--they sailed the boat down the Hudson from Lake Champlain --and showed up on LIS---good sailors--even better partiers!! Doc was one of the best guys I ever sailed for! I've got some great stories bout him, sailing, partying, and general obgyn humor. He is sorely missed by many. whatever happened to that Mohawk kid who sailed with him--he was a riot? Phil or Marc?
