      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. Ran a Thursday night race / birthday party aboard. Race mgmt was fine but party ended after dark. At which point we picked up anchor and went in. Discovered we left the start line pin out at the course. Went back out but couldn't find the starting line pin....... Had to go get it in the morning. Fun. --Kevin
  2. Contact Catalina? --Kevin
  3. Remove all the land storage, jack the prices up, millenials can't get work. What is the result supposed to be? --Kevin
  4. 50,000 displacement. I'd want 125hp+ (@5hp/ton).
  5. Thanks Spike. Great info. Interesting for sure. It's starting to deteriorate and will need some topside repair to the finish. Hope someone takes it on. --Kevin
  6. Here's the transom showing inlays. --Kevin
  7. Found this in Mystic CT next to Red 36 Restaurant at Seaport Marine. Wondering if anyone knows what it is or any history of it? Has a distinctive transom and helm cockpit, otherwise looks like a wood maxi boat. Not really an ior stern. --Kevin
  8. I'm so happy to hear the planning is solidifying into the ability to keep on sailing your adventure. I love the fact that you use the right boat for the conditions. There rarely seems to be a wet foredeck in view, even when you press a little boat into a bigger breeze. You pick them well. Can't wait for more shallow water exploration and the future with the Fisher. Best. --Kevin
  9. Greene Marine in Yarmouth Maine? https://www.mainebuiltboats.com/greene-marine/ A funky yard, but they have built and modified several world-class multihulls. --Kevin
  10. I've thought about this as a simpler approach than trying to pull the trailer all the way out, but the problem is the trailer has a lengthwise beam on the centerline that goes almost right up to the leading edge of the keel (see pic above). Confounds the forward centerline jackstand, so I think I need two forward jacks placed outboard of the trailer with a beam in between anyway, at which point I may as well just pull the trailer all the way out and get it completely out of the way. Ok - go with two jacks forward just outside the trailer forward. Take the pads off the tops and lag bolt a 4x6 to span between the tops. I've seen hundreds of pounds of masts sit on 'horses' made like that. If it sags put a bottle jack under the middle on a 2x6 across the trailer. We use to set up 22ft aquasports for the winter (2000lb hull only) on 2 cement blocks at each corner with a 4x4 across. Never a problem. Good luck! --Kevin
  11. I just backed out a payment to the old / incorrect address and made a new one via paypal. I discovered the series via cruising anarchy and was immediately hooked by the yell sound episode. So I began at season 1 episode 1 and have watched all up to season 6 episode 2. It was quickly clear that there is a shitload of work there. But it's a compelling series. I love the slow drifts with all sorts of different rigs to deal with bridges. The landscapes and conversational style of narration for historic and all other details are fantastic. I really do hope this goes until the goal (of circumnavigating) is complete. There's probably an episode in "the making of KTL" that would be interesting to see as well if it doesn't exist already..... I'm not web-savvy enough or any kind of fund raiser. But I mentioned it over on Off Center Harbor as something they should look into presenting. Seems like there could be other sailing / travel / adventure sites or periodicals that could toss in to support the trip. JMHO. Best Luck. --Kevin
  12. three jack stands. two under the stern and one with a "V" forward, in between the trailer frame. Crank them up. They will easily lift the boat a foot or more. Do your work. Lower the boat to the trailer, paint the jack stand pad spots, toss in water. Tarp the trailer if you need to keep it clean and paint-spatter free. --Kevin
  13. Here's a lovely steel boat. An old acquaintance has it for sale. Related to the thread, he's had lots of corrosion issue with the bottom. 1953 Abeking/Rasmussen built. Alden design. Name is "Enchanta". Sails like a freight train in a breeze. --Kevin
  14. It sails great. Really is a perfect racer-cruiser. We sailed it to Maine from CT and cruised for 12 days up there (16 total) and we have won races with it. Sails upwind just great and downwind with a chute is very solid and mild-mannered even in a breeze. Has a separate stand-up/sit shower in the head. I'm 6'2 and fit just fine in the bunks and shower. We got it from the PO in 2006 from lake St Clair near Detroit. --Kevin
  15. Is that a CS 34? Good Eye - Yes it is. 1991. --Kevin
