      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.

    Carbon boats and carbon golf clubs
  1. 31' sporty, used harken small boat traveller with 4:1 tackle to control up/down first had inhaul only, now added outhaul also.
  2. Dis-agree, we just launched & hauled lots of Melges 24's, J-24"s & J-80's for Charleston race week and you want power trolly in & out, really difficult to position a trailer just right otherwise. BTW ours has power rotation as well very handy.
  3. I gotta say... the decals and sponsors logos DO NOT add to the beauty of the hull. Not attractive, not at all. However, it doesn't get any better looking without those decals. One ugly set of topsides
  4. Your ideal boat is already on the left coast at 31' all carbon with retractable keel, articulating sprit and being sailed shorthanded. Sits on it's trailer now. Had won 2 handed Pac cup a few years back. Sister ship trailered to right coast a few years ago.
  5. In all fairness, I have to admire lots of the detail that is incorporated after watching Cleans video. Saw the boat at the dock at CRW and thought the foredeck mounted solar panel looked very slick. I presume it's capable of foot traffic. However, the overall shape with the slab topsides doesn't conjure "yacht" in my mind. I know chines are all the rage lately, but I'm not buying in.
  6. This has got to be the most butt ugly boat I've ever seen. You've got to have ton of self confidence to be considering this ride. Photos from charleston race week just over. http://www.photoboatgallery.net/p189702596
  7. Not a 30, but the SR33
  8. anyone considering Charleston race week April 18-21 ? great fun !
  9. I was impressed with your weight savings. My entire engine box weighs 2.25 Kg
  10. Reminds me of a certan Soveral 26 that was too light to qualify. Crew showd up therafter wearing 800 Lb Tee shirts
  11. What's with that jib inhauler thingy? It's pulling the lead more aft than in, so meeds another padeye to get the lead angle right, unless I'm off track on it's intended function
  12. Jim; What is the foam used for the hull? Does it haveto be heatedto get he shape shown?
  13. Farr 36 set-up A well executed set-up
