      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.

  1. actually got a bit worried when the spray top and life jacket I ordered during Black Friday week still had not arrived here this past Monday the 23rd (one full month later and yes these were xmas gifts ) but lo and behold both showed late that day...not sure it was SBW or the UPS/Fedex clusterfuck but regardless the kid did end up opening actual gifts so it did all work out.
  2. You get that thing together and I'll represent NSC (Niagara Sailing Club) out of Grand Island and the East Coast of the lake! If you can't find a venue, we might be tempted, and could possibly provide a sleepover / slumber party. We have Sunfish, Lasers, H16's and Sharks for those who don't own Drysuits. We are a bit of a ride (3 hours) but have a hotel within walking distance and some sweet nightlife a short ride across the river. Just tossing it out there. Cheers, Rex II Edit below: Might be able to tempt a half dozen J22 owners and do a match series, or even just two, and rotate the spectators/crews in an elimination series.
  3. Holy Shit that chick is a Train Wreck!
  4. Jesus! Can I book a dockside berth for Dominique Now? We are planning on bringing the J22, and using the First 35 as the "Condo". Do the Doyle's know about this? Might have to Charter Bumblebee to have a final Grudger against Rocking Chair! If I can get the boat i'm bringing Dave Parker for his final hoorah at YYC. I'd love to see Will and Dave exchange war stories after a billion cocktails. Either way someone on my crew is going to Win the party! I've been there on a J24, M24,J22 and now ??????? The Train Wreck crew WILL be in attendance! BTW we are looking for a 6 foot plus 205lb. bowman for the J22 worlds in Newport, if you need a ride.
  5. Can someone call, do a drive by? perhaps paint a big Anarchy symbol on it? Something.
  6. I'm sorry let me check with you: It has a smaller rig in every dimension by a about a meter than the MC38 and displacement of exactly 150% the MC. The transom being narrower will have a higher surface Psi and therefore require additional horsepower to maintain plane. Unless you have access to the below WL hull form you can't be sure even with the ~36 SA/d ratio. The Columbia Carbon 32 at the same or lower price point as sails will be less cost, is a proven 20Kt. plus design. under half the Disp. and a SA/D of 32. An 11s a very very very fast boat, for simmilar dollars. The bolts challenge will be getting uphill efficiently with the big SA/D in a breeze. You are going to struggle to play catch up on the way downhill. With the stern section shown, the Bolt will be later to plane at hotter angles and will struggle to maintain it as the driver tries to go deep to make up distance. Farr40irc, Farr395, Farr 11s, M34, A40 RC, to a lesser extent J122/124 hell a First 47.7 has a chance depending on conditions. All I'm saying is it is a great looking design that will struggle against many same price boats, and be outclassed by a 32 most of the time loosing on time and handicap. For my money the 11s with better cat 3 rating and, half the disp. and SA/d of 44 is where my $200k or less would be spent if that was my interest, But i'm a line honors guy and OD sailor so my interest in its handicap prowess (ability to be sailed pooly and win) is much reduced.
  7. planing not planning spell checker fucked me.
  8. Some interesting marketing pros, using carefully chosen prose. From the Site" "Aimed squarely at the owner who while being excited by the TP’s and 40’ Racers on the market, chooses to apportion a much smaller budget to their racing and be closer in speed to the production cruiser-racers which make up a typical local fleet The words suggest this is no speed demon, and so do several other factors like the 5 ton sail away weight before crew sails etc. With a crew of 8 she will be similar to a 36.7 in displacement, and based on the hull form and site wording it is intended to excel in light wind displacement mode. as opposed to being easily planning capable. With no chine and the exit profile it may surf but extended planning looks out, considering the displacement. I'm curious why there are not any details of below the waterline on the site and the skinned 4340/ templated lead keel assy. is not shown. nice price but I'm gonna hang back on praise until it planes, cause if it doesn't there are 1000's of rating friendly $30K 7 knot shitboxes out there to choose from. Cheers.
  9. (404) He waited until after foreplay to tell me that he didn't have a condom and "we" would just have to settle for a bj tonight... hahahaha
  10. Looks like hot rod had plenty of success with his mono-hull, so why not a cat?
  11. Thanks Geff, Its still nuking today, and its killing me to see the lake and not have the time to get out. Cheers, Rex II
  12. Cute. Had to delay until yesterday afternoon and as we couldn't get out in front of the system, beating 40 miles into the waves was completely out of the question, but we did get out for a ride and had a fucking blast!!! Went out with a reef in a very flat cut North Dacron main, and our #5 storm hankey in steady winds oscillating between 15 and 32 over time and waves in the 12-14 foot range as we set out of Buffalo with a heading of 240 on a port tack. Making an average of 8.4 kts and SOG of 5.6 due to the waves. after a few hours of beating WSW we were south east of Point Abino and were seeing lake swells approaching 18 feet in 65-70 feet of water. At around 8:30pm we came about for the sled ride home and the wind increased at 9 to 35-38 steady with gusts in the mid forties. BUFN6 buoy data below. Time dir. avg. gust pressure temp. 10:06 pm W32.1 39.0----29.69-55.0-----1019 9:54 pm W31.1 42.9----29.68-55.2-----1015 9:42 pm W31.1 38.1----29.68-55.4-----1015 9:36 pm W34.0 40.0----29.68-55.2-----1015 9:24 pm W35.0 42.0----29.67-55.6-----1015 9:06 pm W35.0 45.1----29.66-55.8-----1015 8:54 pm W34.0 40.0----29.65-55.8-----1015 8:42 pm W27.0 32.1----29.65-55.4-----1015 8:36 pm W20.0 25.1----29.65-54.7-----1015 8:24 pm W19.0 26.0----29.65-54.0-----1015 8:06 pm W15.9 20.0----29.64-52.2--- The Goal was to best 17.2 kts which on the ride home was bested several times. I'm not going to share the speeds we saw because I have no interest in defending my Data but the boat has a performance similar to 36.7 but lighter more beam and a sugar scoop. Setting up and surfing 18-20 foot wave swell stacks with 38 steady on your back and gusts to 45 created some very memorable moments. No kite for obvious reasons, and it was dark and moonless. Crew of 3 with check-ins to shore along the way and some great calls to friends shouting our heads off freaking out at what a great ride!!! In a few instances we paced the waves to a point that we would climb the wave in front of the one we surfed throwing tons (literally) of water off the bow in symmetrical wakes as we decelerated back to hull speed. Our best ride I stood off deep 160 and was at 30 degrees to the waves, when the perfect instance of a gust and a large wave found us we began to charge straight down the face, I had neutral helm and raised my hands yelling look Jeff no hands!! Epic evening with two great friends and weather right at the limit of sanity. So yeah it happened, in the limited responsible way it could and we kicked some serious ass!! Most difficult part was backing into my slip with 30kts of breeze trying to push Dominique back out. And as I am in no way a new sailor but a newb here let the flaming begin. hahahahah Cheers, Rex II
