      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. Race Qs GPS Mobile Tracking Hampton Yacht Club will be tracking the racing fleet Down the Bay using a GPS mobile tracking system. This year we are utilizing an application called RaceQs. Many of you may have heard about or used RaceQs, it is designed specifically for sailing and will allow replay of the race for each boat that participates.
  2. They are using raceQ not sure you can follow the race like the Gov Cup? I did not see a link. You may be able to follow a boat. Anyone know if you can track the fleet?
  3. Yes looks like a light weight Hunter, had no business out there. Fuck the tether that would be a ugly picture.
  4. My friend you are located just outside the Chesapeake, Hampton/Norfolk just up the road, Annapolis not that far away and a BUNCH of boats in between. There are people that come from all over the country to buy a boat in this area. If you can not find what you are looking for in this area?? If you are looking at a Tripp 26, still east coast maybe drag one up from FL. i say road trip if you are getting one you an drag home, Good luck.
  5. That is nice they want to take such a small boat down the ICW. There a lot of boats that will not see you. If and When a shrimp boat comes rolling up behind you. If you are not big on praying might be a good time to start. Good luck be safe that is long trip on little boat.
  6. I have to ask what as fucking 10 foot draft, sorry did not google
  7. BIG SALE! WM has a sale on a few colors of EZPoxy2. They have it discounted by $0.10 per gallon, weeeeeee! I sent them a quick email and asked if this was true and they replied; I see what you are seeing, yes these did go down a whopping ten cents a gallon. Wish it was more, when you see a price that ends in 88 cents that means that the item is clearance or discontinued Was good for chuckle, like 10 cents is change someone decision on a $142 gallon of paint.

  8. God knows this has been a ton of fun. Anyone here DIY paint job with PETTIT PAINTS EZ-Poxy Modern Polyurethane Topside Paint? Yes, roll and tip. I have to agree Rustoleum needs more testing maybe a smaller boat Pettit also has EZ-Poxy Performance Enhancer say new for 2016 don't see it listed anywhere. PETTIT PAINTS EZ-Poxy Modern Polyurethane Topside Pain can be had for $130 per gallon at your neighborhood West Marine
  9. Dang, tough crowd, I take it no one has used Rust oleum topside paint. Who has made and sold more paint that Rust Oleum? http://www.rustoleum.com/product-catalog/consumer-brands/marine-coatings/ I agree prep is everything the hull is in pretty good shape, it was painted by a PO, I believe it was a roll and tip job. When doing the first sanding I found one area that may not have been tipped as well as it could have. If it had never been painted I may agree with some. Topside sides semi gloss, deck paint it maybe a bit much.
  10. Getting closer to painting the top sides on my Catalina 30. Looking at rustoleum topside paint seems to get rave reviews. Anyone here have any experience with this paint? Going to roll and tip. Going with semi gloss white, they also offer a flat white. $15.88 a qt. at Lowes, 4 qt.s will put a couple of coats the wide girl.
  11. Fix it anchary, check the J24 threads. Having someone go through the deck will make a great story that you will never live down. Fix it not that bad of a job. I say from the top down fighting gravity seems like a rough way to go.
  12. GLENN FREY EAGLES GUITARIST DEAD AT 67 That is a lot of music to catch up on. There is not a bad song just some almost as good ones mixed in with really good ones . Never seen him live that was always a tough ticket to get. Cause of death was a combination of complications from rheumatoid arthritis, acute ulcerative colitis, and pneumonia. Sounds like the man was in a lot pain with acute ulcerative colitis. Sorry would post a youtube of a favorite but that is above my skill set.

  13. It is the NAVY's bad NAVY day. How they can not keep track of their sailors and boat is another question. Bad gas gauge on a boat, imagine that.
  14. My first question is how many people have died in that thing?
  15. I feel your pain on little leaks and pulling hardware. I pulled the track on the starboard toe rail last weekend. Has been a hack job by the prior PO's EVEN had silicone caulk on the interior. I was not aware it was there until I pulled interior wood trim that cover the bolts where the track is. Many of the screws had damaged heads from others that had given up on this project. I put an electric torque wrench on them, 3 hours or so and 40 screws and bolts later it was off. It took longer to clears all of the caulk off the track. For now all of the holes are plugged with butyl tape, waiting for warmer weather and a bunch of new bolts. No, I am not refilling and redrilling all of those holes, I would never finish the project. Who has the best price on stainless screws and bolts, Fastenal? dew
