      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.

    Anything that flys
  1. I wish I only had a 72' boat, I CURRENTLY HAVE 335', WANNA TRADE? Cheers, Stephen
  2. Jump starting the adventure, written in the sand on the beach. the future Hostel /crews quarters are a 43ft Cross trimaran( one of two available )) she is currently in Kentucky lake, has 5 berths in three separate quarter's, 50hp yanmar, enclosed bridgedeck, two showers, large galley, diesel genset, air conditioner (low on freon), radar, and huge frig/freezer. She needs to go up the Mississippi to Chicago, through the lakes, stopping at the Toronto multihull club, then Erie Canal, NYNY to North Carolina. lots of cleaning, gorgeous interior and will fix whatever needs fixing under way. She can depart July ? and would like to get to North Carolina for the First Ever "Sail like ya stole it multihull rendezvous" around November 1st. the second crew quarters is a 38ft Open wing Harris trimaran in Yarmouth Maine, excellent sails, her engine bed is prepped for the new 27hp Yanmar, I will install new tramps and paint touch up .she could easily be ready in two,three weeks to also head down the coast for the rendezvous, but no hurry. the Antrim is 1/2 on the east coast and 1/2 on the west coast, she likes 55knots so it is more of a question of getting the crews quarters ready before picking her up, she is available in a partnership BUT would only use the money to pay for another racing trimaran that is already picked out. CRAZY ENOUGH! Sometime after the rendezvous, I would take the fleet to the Ft Lauderdale, Key West race, then? Cuba and/or the Bahamas or? Can it be done? I am planning on a budget for hardware/boat related gear and hope to get sponsors for entry fees etc. I AM CURRENTLY A ONE MAN BAND, so I hope to find capable crew to run a few boats, eventually at the same time. why so many boats? it is fun, the more the merrier? just want to try to share something I can't explain . the hostels will be support and media boats. RACING Ft Lauderdale Key West requires a minimum of 4 in a crew, so there is plenty of room for deserving crew members. logistics ; sail in legs allowing easy on and off, one way rental cars are $100 a day, so it is not expensive to jump ship. GOM or Golden Oldies are a great group of European members that keep vintage racing multihulls alive for future generations, they are my mentors. I do not OWN any of these boats, I AM THERE CARETAKER! these are available to ANYONE THAT CAN PLAY WELL WITH OTHERS AND BELIEVE IN "Karate Kid" wax on wax off. will it work? I am leaving Reno Nevada in the next two weeks, I will post daily positions and additional updates in the attempt . Additional race and support boats are available depending on participation. Whoops, most important , once the support boats are in place fun racing/ training will be the theme of the commune, at this point there will be two boats,phrf -65 and -75 one cat, one tri to match race against, honing one skills in the search for profound existence. WE SHARE OUR TOYS AND LIFE IS NOT ABOUT THE MONEY! Hope to see you and support a dream or two. Stephen ps, I have the 2018 R2ak winning boat , but boy she needs work, if you have the time I have to boat, she will outsail a f31 and easily out row her
  3. one of the crew members told me this and it isn't wrong to get sponsors . so they have a gimmick, why would that make me a douchebag?
  4. you got it, in the 2015 and 2016 r2ak most of my crew showed up two days before the start, and we had less than four hours of training. My son and i spent three weeks in the parking lot , 12 hour days setting her up, spending $15k, that didnt work very well . if I could set up a base camp (cruising boats to live on ) and sail on the race boats, it might be fun, learn something and arrive to a few races with a little skill under our belt. I have been collecting racing multihulls for 30 years and they sit in storage, waiting for an opportunity to sail. I am getting old, will always be broke, as I have too many boats and would like to share. is it realistic? I don't know, would it be cool to learn how to fly a hull on a Reynolds 33 for hours at a time, I think so. I live in Reno, so unless I go landsailing it ain't going to happen here. I have been everwhere in the US and North Carolina is a user friendly place to sail, my wife has poor health so I need a place that is easy to commute to Reno. the east coast has a great races and close to the Caribbean if a team materializes. I am not a tiller hog and love to watch my crews faces when they drive my boats, everyone in the R2ak got to surf Nice Pair for at least 4 hours, it was a hoot! Yes, I would like a multihull commune. yes, I would love to mentor younger sailors to the podium. The Antrim, Gougeon/ Gardiner have been stored too long. If you need money get a job, if you need a thrill jump out of an airplane, if you are afraid of airplanes try a high speed multihull. I am not going to be around for ever, and I would like to pass something along, if you want to work and sail we have something in common Stephen Marcoe (open to suggestions) 2akteamgoldenoldies on facebook Ps most of my boats are for sale UNTIL I find a way to take care of them.
  5. ps, this is a great opportunity to anyone building time for a captains license.
  6. R2ak racer would like to go bigger, needs minions to assemble/ prep an unorganized fleet of multihulls, in exchange you get to sail, race and cruise to your hearts content. Zephr, Antrim 40 x 34 all Carbon trimaran, offshore racer Cakewalk, vintage 34x26 Gougeon/ Gardiner trimaran ....perfect r2ak racer 25ft Newick trimaran powerboat for support/photo boat, 50hp 33X16 Reynolds catamaran, phrf approximately -65.....also perfect r2ak racer 38x24 cruising trimaran, comfortable support ship, currently at the famous multihull yard of Walter Greene's I will consider any race, anywhere, but prefer the east coast to gather the fleet, my only funding is barely enough to support the boats. preferred crew are self sufficient, have extra time on their hands, willing to help in a media campaign for future sponsorship (video /writing experience would be helpful). you get lodging at no cost and i will pick up expenses if sponsors are found. First choice is to gather the fleet in North Carolina this summer/fall . I like R2AK, Ft lauderdale to Miami, any Cuba race, Rolex cup, etc prefer to train/cruise in the Bahamas in between. open to any suggestions I am leaving Reno NV by July 1st to gather the fleet. Stephen r2akteamgoldenoldies on Facebook yes, I am a multihull addict and I am running out of time
  7. $36500 seemed cheap, considering they are not that old and $120k new, the 14ft beam caused the massive depreciation, and the 16ft beam boats are much more manageable.
  8. 2015 r2ak Nice Pair set the record to Victoria, beating a arc 22 and the Marstrom 32. 2016 Mad Dog ran a beautiful race and put themselves in harms way, but they weren't racing the other boats, they were racing mother nature and their own will power. 2017 was a boat race for line honors. Nice Pair is a vintage Crowther and Golden Oldies was to represent GOM multihulls the nonprofit in Europe that restore vintage racing multihulls, I won the Prize when Dick Newick's wife contacted me to thank me for represented GOM r2ak represents different goals, I envy the final finisher as it glorifies perseverance. so r2ak is what you make of it
  9. if the weather goes bad she has four berths, two are decent. this year's race would of gave some advantage to the Reynolds, and a used Marstrom 32 is $200k, so it beats it to the bank! berths and two
  10. the entry fee is approximately $1,000 and the return airfare is $500, so you might get a free ride, but there is no profit, unless you value fame
  11. bang for the buck, ($36500) a wide Reynolds 33 could own this race. phrf ratings for the Marstrom is -99, the Melvin -3, f31 -3 and a Reynolds is -65. A 40 Antrim is -75.
  12. I will give the 28ft tri the win, but the Marstrom 32 stole the race.
  13. Randy did I catch that right? you bought Mama tried? are you planning on r2ak 2018? Stephen
  14. wide Reynolds 33 are ten times the boats and are cheap right now
