      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. Hi Forum.... Some news from "Frigate" http://forums.sailinganarchy.com/index.php?showtopic=159620&hl=frigate https://www.facebook.com/groups/495048177200186/
  2. http://www.leboncoin.fr/nautisme/381089824.htm# Poor Frigate, maybe her last chance...
  3. Whaou! Allez, en français, pour une fois aux autres de traduire. Merci Chorus, très beau, mais tu as oublié les boites dorades et les manches à air! Je suis en train de "craquer" pour un 37 où il y a tout à refaire, mais il faudra avant tout vendre le 33...Est ce bien raisonnable???? Par contre, pas de bonne nouvelle de Frigate qui est de plus en plus abandonnée et pitoyable. Je vais la voir quelque fois comme on visite un copain malade...
  4. Hello Guys! Just seen here: http://www.boatdesign.net/forums/sailboats/carter-37-a-39158-3.html There seems to be some misinformation floating around that my uncle Dick Carter died in 2007- not so. He's in great shape and divides his time between Doughton Manor (which he has been restoring) in England and Falmouth, Mass. (The 2007 rumor apparently first appeared on a Sailing Anarchy forum but is total bologna). As a kid I used to sail on a Carter 33 owned by Dick's brother John named 'Crocodile' and then a one ton by the same. The boats were always competitive! A good new or a hoax from a troll? Somebody can confirm?
  5. Up about "Frigate" http://www.leboncoin.fr/nautisme/194279520.htm?ca=13_s Nothing done since my last words about her and it's disappoints me a lot!!! The owner seems to seek partners... Nobody here? I could only give time and my arms to help him.
  6. Hello! Yes I met Frigate's owner two months ago....and the boat is really sick, I don't know if he is able to repair her. Difficult for me to say more within speaking evil, sorry! But I can say Frigate is in danger and time goes wrong for her. The owner doesn't know anything about the story since "La Rochelle".
  7. Thanks for all, I learn a lot, very interesting topic!!! I had a phone call with Frigate's owner, I'll meet him in a few week near the boat. Perhaps he'll come here to tell you about her.
  8. Yes really great job! Quick question: I noticed on a fairing 37 in the propeller shaft out at the rear of the keel while the location of the engine seems classical under the steps of the descent. Is it correct? How is the transmission forward universal joint?
  9. Either the bolts have sprung from the back of the Port Toe rail or the original fit was god awful. Yes, it seems to be cut, and the bolts holes are still open. Hope wood is not completely rooten....
  10. I've got à short answer from him telling that he was in a foreign country and would be back in France next week. I think I'll call him in a few days and then tell you "the news"...
  11. And the winner is...... Congratulations for those who had recognised her!!!! At this point, not any answer from seller but i went to Port Camargue this afternoon. No name on the boat but only on the hood wheel.
  12. I just wrotte to the owner/seller to ask more.Hope he will answer....
  13. i just think seller is palying with words So, let him play and dream of finding a "pigeon" ready to pay that price to get a yacht still nice but within engine, old sails, and so much work to "awake" Mabelle. It is a so long time she is for sale, and i see her become damaged months after months. Next time I'll go in "Port Camargue", I will look more in détails, also her name.
  14. Chorus, so you think the seller is à liar! The boat I saw is a Carter 39 in wood but didn't won fasnet, that's you mean?
  15. Doe's someboby know about this one, Carter 39, molded wood, won fastnet, and run admiral's cup. I saw her yesterday afternoon, and was disappointed to note her poor condition...I hope a new purchaser will come rapidly to restore her and make her feeling the breeze again... http://www.boats-diffusion.com/pc21172/carter-39.html
