      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. We send milk powder all over the world........... And that is a pig-rooter of a boat
  2. Hi Ben, it was mentioned in an article recently that there was a smaller (than 12m) Arrow in development. When will this eventuate?
  3. Funny, I always thought a tri has the best of both mono's and cats! +1
  4. Regrettable but WTF. Kinda interested in the wing masted pod-cat (maybe??) in the background.
  5. A 'Crowther 33' tri could be a Kraken, Tempest (1960s), or a Buccaneer (1970s). The Twiggy was designed around 1978 and updated later. If you are thinking of buying one check this; http://www.boatdesign.net/forums/multihulls/twiggy-drawings-42835.html
  6. You can see the advantages of the folding-mast (paf) reefing system.
  7. Yes. Just what everybody wants - to get away from it all with 28 others......................
  8. More like a Beachcomber I think for the fuckee :-) The raised deck has obviously been done to increase space below, but to me what makes it look most odd is the contrasting bow rakes. But never mind they'll sell if the price is right. Bit of a step back from the Sprint Mk 2 which looks pretty good IMO. http://sail.corsairmarine.com/special-price-promotion-on-sprint-750s-until-end-of-december-2016 However, if Corsair had continued with Tony Grainger they might be bringing to market something like...... http://www.rocketfactorytrimarans.com/rocket-range/rocket-26/
  9. Nice job. The smaller cabin is probably better on this design. Could you still add the designed beams and folding system?
  10. Thanks Wayne. Great review.
  11. Yea but tillers leave the driver more exposed. What cruiser wants that? Certainly the presence of a tiller does not exclude the possibility of a bimini or dodger? I mean I realize you're sitting on the stern quarter the whole time but where there's a will, there's a way n'est-ce pas? You're right - it doesn't...and with well designed linkages, you don't have to sit on the stern quarter to steer either. In fact, a 35' cat i created, that is fast enough to have won the multihull SORC & a lot of local races, has a bimini and eisenglass that completely encloses the cockpit - and you can steer and trim the sails within that enclosure. Hi Peter, do you have a link to info about the 35?
  12. And now a slightly larger version with a cockpit.................. http://www.sardineboats.com/voiliers/sardine-run-19/
  13. Well done! nice to see a different concept hit the water.
  14. Current UK pricing for F-22: A standard F-22 with main & jib is £51,000 ready to go on its composite trailer from our yard in South UK. Yes, there is 20% purchase Tax to add to that. Yes, there is bit of a que An F-22 R [Ali rig] would bump that up to £57,000 + Tax Does 'ready to go' include outboard and safety gear? Or is it a bare boat?
  15. Thank you Rushman... That was obvious from Ian's posts 1002, 1006, 1017. However that was not my question.
