      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.

  1. There is a Baba 40 PH for sale in BC. Nice layout. http://www.yachtworld.com/boats/1984/Ta-Shing-Panda-Tashiba-3038157/Gabriola-Island/Canada#.WLrZQm8rKpo
  2. Yes on the cap rail detail with caulked joint. End grain to end grain joining is always a challenge. Even using butterfly ties or other methods. Anyone have other examples of good cap rail joints they like?
  3. Boomer & Bob, The rudder detail pics are great. Thanks for that. AP bracket and opening nicely detailed. Are the brackets on the transom each side of the rudder for removable davits?
  4. Good looking steel boat. Should be no problem going on and on and on with the way it has been cared for.
  5. Going to go the length of Lake Ontario. 50 Point in the west, to Gananoque on the St. Lawrence and return. About 400 miles round trip and then some extra for "meandering" . Stay a few days and then fight the west winds on the way back. Will probably put J. on a train home at some point if we are held up on the return. She only has 3 weeks to be out.
  6. Howard was sailing an 11' 11" Scamp. He does have long experience in small boat voyaging. This sounds very tough Can see more at Small Craft Advisor magazine blog with some pics http://smallcraftadvisor.com/our-blog/
  7. Will, what shop are you at in Montreal?
  8. Compare to the radius on the loop block next to it. Can also see the attachment going through the head, not around the posts
  9. "A CNC sprit plug was machined and from this a female mold was made." Bob, was the female mold a 2pc and then each side bonded after pulling? I may have missed a post on this back in the library stacks.
  10. You will need more of a toothed saw blade to make chips rather than a grinding action. Lead is too soft and will load up the abrasive type of wheel Edit: in an ideal world. Just got up to your post where you tried everything.
  11. Looks like BP and HB going to be pinched between the AEZ line and the low wind area to their NNW? They can't really go north too far or they loose wind speed sooner. EDR has a chance to make gains on them in the next 12 hours I think
  12. discussed a day or 2 back. Have to cross back at the point of entry.
  13. Not working here either in Safari or the TOR browser. [...] The wat.tv site requires Flash. At the end of the clip (1:26) are a 2 seconds or so with HB from behind, no starboard foil. That should solve that. Edit: screenshot vg_tf1_hb_no_foil_1.jpg check the black dot in the red circle (probably an alien) and watch the footage again (at 1'20"ish)... Part of the tackle on the guys holding the spreader pole.
  14. Yes, I think the broadcaster using older footage mixed in there.
