      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. I have a Zeus Touch and it work fine even in porring rain.
  2. Thanks LeCanard. Just got an answer from Tinley. This paddlewheel is also a coil, so my high resistance reading mean that the transducer is dead. Also got a quote from Myles for a replacement (SEN-SPD-HP) and schematic to make it work with my Hornet 4. Now, only thing to confirm is if it is gonna be a drop fit in the actual through-hull housing. Looks like it as my housing is a B17.
  3. It is really a paddlewheel sensor that I have. Six blades paddle and the sensor extremity is red (part # 202-00-036). This is one of the only B&G sensor with a body diameter of 40mm. 1- What type of sensor is that red end sensor I have: reed relay or magnetic pickup? 2- Should I be reading any voltage at terminal 1 & 2 of the Hornet 4 unit when the speed sensor is not connected? 3- What other speed sensors from B&G can be used on a Hornet 4? Thanks,
  4. I will send this question to Richard. I already know Tinley as I have their Hornet4_to_NMEA black box combined with an AT10 to provide data to my N2K network (Zeus Touch, Triton and AC12). Still looking for LeCanard opinion.
  5. My B&G Hornet 4 boat speed started do display 0.00 kt while crusing (and boat log does not increment), and never went up again. Paddlewheel is still there and turns freely. I disconnected the paddlewheel from the Hornet unit, and jumping terminals 1 & 2 with a piece of wire gives me boat speed (proportionnal to my jumping frequency). Looks like the Hornet unit is fine. However, I cannot read any voltage at the Hornet paddlewheel terminals. I imagine it is normal, as the paddlewheel is not a reed relay but a magnetic pickup (30000 turn of wire according to LeCanard). Measured the resistance of the paddlewheel and is reads over 200000 ohms. LeCanard wrote that it should be aroud 10000 ohms, so it does not look good for the sensor. What other paddlewheel will work with a Hornet 4 system? SEN-SPEED-H or P? If I can find another Hornet paddlewheel unit (2 wire, part number 202-00-036 red), will it be compatible with a eventual H5000 system? LeCanard, please help...
  6. It is the same address as Tinley Electronics. I have a Hornet4 to NMEA0183 device from them. Good product.
  7. DF tracker is still active. The boat Is back to Southampton.
  8. What? No elevator in the mast?
  9. Don't know for other watch, but the Quatix can connect to the GNT10 (N2K-Ant+ transceiver) also. But they don't list the GNT10 as compatible with the Nautix.
  10. Have a look at Seamantec EDO Instruments https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=air.com.seamantec.mobile.messages. 40 NMEA 0183 supported, but no custom yet. There is also NKE Display. https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=nke.appandroid.activities. Nice, free...
  11. As Alex said. There is a NMEA0183 port on the Zeus2.
  12. The part I like: "Not having charts for the area, Jula S was concerned about the approach..."
  13. Meniscus effect close to shore?
  14. There is some image that you just cant get out of your head. And they are not the good one.
  15. I admire the toughness of that bra. Have you seen how the shoulder straps stretch?
