      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.

      Moderation Team Change   06/16/2017

      After fifteen years of volunteer moderation at SA, I will no longer be part of the moderation team. The decision to step aside is mine, and has been some time in the works but we did not wish to announce it in advance for a number of reasons. It's been fun, but I need my time back for other purposes now. The Underdawg admin account will not be monitored until further notice, as I will be relinquishing control of it along with my administrative privileges. Zapata will continue on as a moderator, and any concerns or issues can be directed to that account or to the Editor until further notice. Anyone interested in helping moderate the forums should reach out to Scot by sending a PM to the Editor account. Please note that I am not leaving the community, I am merely stepping aside from Admin responsibilities and privileges on the site.

  3. Very cool! I look forward to seeing her in Miami.
  4. We have been jammin on the next boat. Both hulls are up and we have been fitting and installing floors and bulkheads. We are also building molds for the houses on this boat. https://photos.google.com/photo/AF1QipMTvTvsFyYQFKj6KoqCX1jwLcwxrB5lGYgA_kld https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/aggNHHEmtjVTBWq7K3ANURcjPSTgYbvbBmYl0oBp3LujXUvaxhWV1incAdLVgUmzW8TXXY-4W3IOZ2ThfRG-9Z0rvdxoFsBPG6Rm8AmdMHTh06PqGtL6x-SjdvvQ_OBl6Cef24EN8ScbMso4LblkCf2jILcRHc2TSf_BT_92LnXe7OSJIs7zKnixBHL8aW-acxFXwa6acIY6rUcNA8-wE-2LvWLq0ysDZob6sfhKcqiW2-tyG-MMF7_8XuR0NW9dmLip7viTxc-kCUJlE9EL9nukyHyFqIMGzz1DOQWXjurGYsJdxv_BkJ8xlJaN9srY2QdAUEiAZytcsJzSgpQ2l_sAkkhLQtqF5GpBM-xcW8mRU0T5MIqaCn14cSO3PuknzwJGifyJbhGyOV3Fq3o1G1jaiOJn-D-m34Y9t2GFY_3jyYuKd_nMAaw2nkSIN9CJ-uXbmOmPCvyUNGpJx2zOsvbmqyHDoYiR568buOu6ncavy9MXkicfFmRUQ6rPkr4JNILOrfMKuKEByIC5hhaWhNdmGQAJzfLI2hywpoeas_-hTEHKn-od9sHfwu9zOUirpqDXzPIRnwgaYEkrz5VOgMyywSUjscIVJNGvg4qSTr14CFZHsQ=s675-no https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/Kf9UuvVae2gJam7nf46z5RDimSJGGHp89dCafAiZ5mtTCBvl0OkNlWF4zDFfrURVw2IstSsohC2muz2EK19Cn3OLy0TD17UD41AtdZVzzNOQ4GzbU0ZVQTVAHpCK_isYc-jJMzblUCPuvX_O1Nx18PGxml29Oy07ZsktbIWdjf4Beda_lEkio2btuRRfE-20Xv_wj6QUD8V46nH-9ECcLqdMxygQPRLSzfhDuokdi5HTPnXAfdMLFo0NibZseNvX05EEDpQ0b2wLVo4RA3pPluGNG2GX8TGafu0Mm-Ep-ivMjMR18aQnL6A8l58LYZI7bg2JPAJ58B9WMvWiqTZmSb8yj0kTToq0FaZwUCfm0sKLF2fYYrpzkrHZZJBYYYOVGfVsMTcnxOUm6qzxI5m-bxmDlLyVf66seBKP8vTuxFLTaQAHkwvhe6KuLLEUZZwIywbKKJ2rVzgExjgulDL0Fz9MZuAIGmAOI7fErYaPEB4-4EOmGYvod5bx4WoejsSGDaDFc5cy93AXH4LdkeVgdzknEYttyhZxPQ4X2G4nxWQWWoscjID2FUW_ygNWpwzSrf14_7IYOEYxi8C9tYenbKdLhBItmRv857HMIdA3Hp0HiU8EMQ=w507-h675-no https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/vJMFr75hacnXLPsD8F0pnKLft3evod92x5Zjq5t9CvyFfpy0hjwKxy572gu9E2LScbzMspcMqvPC-TvEkp1YpsVD_CSSKMIkdL2bradRTS4sAKL1DM_4wY3binoBeJuu5dMKl6-_A1fohFEdkR6OGZOJcvKNqwLYrr6bGPnDtNGZiDpQKJJ5oBM8JQc0E-riQZjI8_zy2v5ESjpxyCyY1rVJKbGOJF9A6pSsjyjTNNIlHgGdECmxfcRzlstPOXBO2aETaFB5Nk064uRFBr0ks-U306u-eLCEMTJ5oQsPCpBtRbDgJTHOByvA_Rdkkoc0DETdHDXaESI2rbr7E3mM0wtCS8wZ5JT9SO6G8ee1e_DPzwUpHmY8rrWE9ZeiW46SPrg1UgypGvCrm2XyEj8q86tT1nfmFi5NiYddK8BreDrXaodcvdXjnnbJ1Ivv7XXpppgUmPmLSNShuAn86ateP6j8vVV5qEwvF9GQhfhVMV9Mo7c6r2LTwMn0v_NKOye1nlWKj2BLLxAM1Khn8HERame71NlCT7zaFqHrUN5Vbl3eiNqrHPvGbiYHIF3hDYjT0zyxpv-5TvRAUqIkIFCvhVklDBaSLQ8dWNmbQlwmNhr8wROa1w=w507-h675-no
  5. sent you an email Dimitrious
  6. Well we impressed the most important person with Bazinga, our next client. We started a new build in May for a Canadian fellow living in Grand Cayman. This boat will be a two stick rig with no daggerboards and bigger motors. We have extended the hull mold 12" in depth, which increased the hull beam 12" and the overall length to 50'5". I think this boat will come in around 28,000 lbs. we'll see how close I am this time. This boat will get a genset and ac and a three cabin layout. Here are some pics of progress. https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B2Gt-VIoTuDuSnhLQ09IMFFRdnR2LUh0X1l1bTUtOG4zcVNn https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B2Gt-VIoTuDuQUl1R2hRZG5YcDdpclo0MHg1UURocDFnU1pj https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B2Gt-VIoTuDuRWJycV91enVuZC1RVERrczJjaUw1N24xNXhR https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B2Gt-VIoTuDuSEQzQWFYMG9oc0IxQXRmSXBrdGlvM3BaMHUw
  7. Here is our final video of Bazinga before she takes off for the Bahamas. From April.
  8. way wrong dude.. and I don't like Geminis
  9. You're right about the clip, here is the northbound video. Wrong about the windspeed https://youtu.be/h83Rsj-xU3c
  10. A short clip of Bazinga sailing from Biscayne Bay to West Palm. https://youtu.be/6B__npj8I1o
  11. Here is a short video of ou sailing from Jupiter to Miami Christmas day. true wind mid twenties to about thirty. Boatspeed was 9-12 at about 40 degrees apparent. The boat was very happy as were Brad and myself. https://youtu.be/6B__npj8I1o
  12. The owner , Brad, spent the holidays with his family in the keys with Bazinga. He is delighted with the boat as am I. WE sailed the boat down Christmas day from Jupiter. It blew high twenties to low thirties. The boat was doing 9-12 kn at about 45 apparent. with 4-6 ft seas. Sweet. I will share some more photos soon. Everything worked with no breakages. Most bitchin!
  13. https://dochub.com/davidhalladay/oyMJKR/img_1848.pdf https://dochub.com/davidhalladay/MaYK1J/img_1852 https://dochub.com/davidhalladay/1WOP82/img_1847 https://dochub.com/davidhalladay/7YJPez/img_1851 A few quick sails in light air Very happy so far
  14. We launched the boat this past Friday, sat in the travel lift slip for the weekend and last night motored 1/4 mile to a marina slip. All is well so far. We rented four load cells and weighed the boat . 19,600 lbs. WOW. But this not a bare boat. This includes the water maker, oven, life raft, fenders, extensive dock lines and fenders, a huge solar array with wiring and controllers, boat tools, full electronics. I think we are ok. Sure I wanted her lighter but she is still floating a bit high on her lines. We will start sailing her soon. The traveller is indeed on the hardtop. There are lots of reinforcements, I don't expect issues there. The owners have changed their plans and the boat will live here in Palm Beach for now with cruising plans for the Bahamas and Caribbean. Here is a launch video. Sailing stuff to follow. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wV-qkYdZb4U
