Abbreviated rules 07/28/2017Underdawg did an excellent job of explaining the rules. Here's the simplified version: Don't insinuate Pedo. Warning and or timeout for a first offense. PermaFlick for any subsequent offenses Don't out members. See above for penalties. Caveat: if you have ever used your own real name or personal information here on the forums since, like, ever - it doesn't count and you are fair game. If you see spam posts, report it to the mods. We do not hang out in every thread 24/7 If you see any of the above, report it to the mods by hitting the Report button in the offending post. We do not take action for foul language, off-subject content, or abusive behavior unless it escalates to persistent stalking. There may be times that we might warn someone or flick someone for something particularly egregious. There is no standard, we will know it when we see it. If you continually report things that do not fall into rules #1 or 2 above, you may very well get a timeout yourself for annoying the Mods with repeated whining. Use your best judgement. Warnings, timeouts, suspensions and flicks are arbitrary and capricious. Deal with it. Welcome to anarchy. If you are a newbie, there are unwritten rules to adhere to. They will be explained to you soon enough.

Papaji posted a topic in Cruising AnarchyHi, I just joined your forum and am hoping to find some members that have experience or know of a certain type of boat that may or may not be out there. I have been looking for a new floater for a circumnavigation that would be comfortably handling high latitude waters. Here is my dilemma: Just recently I've been caught off guard by a modern design boat. Having always sailed true classics I never really paid attention to the newer designs that are always swamping the market, so I was not expecting to be drawn to the specs of the Futuna explorer 54. http://nl.yachtworld.com/boten/2015/Futuna-54-Explorer-3077058/country.frankrijk#.WfZPVmi3yUk. There is not much that I don't like about the boat, apart from its size (and price tag). It made me look further for similar boats and came across the Boreal 47 http://www.boreal-yachts.com/boreal-modele/le-boreal-47/?lang=en and Garcia exploration boats. https://www.sailmagazine.com/boats/garcia-exploration-45-jimmy-cornells-ideal-boat Neither of those caught my fancy as the Futuna did. When I looked further into the Futuna shipyard, it looks like they only built one expedition 54 and that one is now for sale with a ridiculous pricetag of no less than 690k euro ex VAT. Granted the boat has a carbon boom and mast, but who would want such a thing on a boat he plans to circumnavigate? You will never be able to make any kind of repair on that. There is so much out there and I have not kept watch on the market for many years. So I am wondering if anybody knows of any boats that are similar in specs and design like the futuna above? Ideally it would be an aluminium centerboard 46-52ft. I would not mind finding an older boat and upgrading to somewhat match the specs of the Futuna explorer. Any thoughts ideas and links are much appreciated!!
