      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. ORC rule was implemented as the principal handicap rule for the Charleston Race Week 2017, it was the first time the system was used in a major North American regatta. Thirty boats raced in four separate ORC Classes at this event One of the most competitive fleets was ORC C. The fleet consisted of f 9 boats, SR33, Melges 32, Melges 30, Heno 30, 2X Farest28Rs, and 3GP26s. USA2604 Michael Beasley and Team Rattle and Rum won the event with a comfortable margin. the results are here Overall, the ORC rating system seemed to work well... More often only a few seconds were the deciding factor between the corrected times... The overall award for the best performance in an ORC Class went also to Mike Beasley and his Annapolis-based crew of Joe Gibson, Ted and Joanna Harland, Scott Gibbs and Ty Van Dalen... Beasley and his crew were awarded the prestigious and historic Palmetto Cup for winning the tightest class in the handicap divisions. We are very happy to see the boat performing well under ORC rating. Hope it will get more popularity in the USA, as this will lead to exciting racing with some fast boats... Congratulations to Eagles Eye (FE28) and Short Bus (Henderson 30) as well as all other teams competing... photocredit: CharlestonRaceWeek; TimWilkes Photography Attached Thumbnails
  2. What is everyone using? Anyone have photos of tiller attachments? #4500, 36' well balanced sportboat. Planning on more shorthanded racing
  3. I'm a long-time Viper 640 sailor, and I recently upgraded to a 2013 model after previously co-owning and owning two older Viper 640s. Each had a different cunningham setup, and our class rules offer a limited amount of freedom in cunningham and gnav controls. On my first boat, #42, we had a a purchase setup that led to one side of the mast base and a gnav setup that led to the other side. Both of them pinched the spin block/cleat that exited the centerline of the mast. That gnav setup also had a block moving up/down next to the mast, affecting instrument placement. On #18, cunningham purchase was led under the foredeck, with control lines led to each side of the forward cockpit. A line with a loop was fed thru the tack and terminated on a ball on the other side of the mast. I changed #18's gnav to 8:1 on the gnav track, leading two lines down the mast, via rings lashed to the mast, with 2:1 on either side of the cockpit with thicker line led to in-between the driver and middle crew, with one line that crosses the middle of the boat (so you can get extra gnav from the far-side if you bottom out the current side). On my new boat, #195, I want to try something different with the cunningham. I am thinking of using a single line, led to each side of the forward cockpit, with a block on each side of the mast base (or half of a double, the other half for the gnav), plus a perpendicular block, behind or in-front of the mast (probably mounted on a bolt thru a pair of mast-step holes). The cunningham would need to have a block on either side of the tack, ideally as tight to the sail as practical. I could also include a mast strap with rings on each side. I would also consider the blocks floating just below the boom. I need to be able to detach the cunningham system from the mainsail tack. I need to be able to attach these two blocks quickly. Ideas: A short Dynema line with dog bones at either end, to feed through two blocks and the tack, with the dog bones locked to either side of the tack? A pair of blocks with tack hooks? Some clever loop lashing with blocks that have T-connections? Something I haven't thought of? Thanks, Jason PS, I just put the boat in a barn/hanger until springtime, so of course I can't stop thinking about making the ergonomics my own.
  4. It all started with Kevin Farrar's one off build which was well documented on SA sportboat anarchy, Now we will send Hull3 to USA later this week. Hull3 will be joined in east coast with hull5 and hull6, lifting keel versions later in the summer 2013. Kevin's boat, Hull3 and Hull6 will sail in North East USA not much far away from each other. Hull5 find a new home in Florida For further info please conract usa@wraceboats.com here is a sneak preview from inside
  5. I am thinking about replacing the main halyard double clam cleats on my Viper 640 mast if I can find a clutch that wouldn't be too big or heavy. Any thoughts? One alternative is replacing one clam cleat with a horn cleat, but I really want to see if there is a right-sized clutch for this application. Thanks, Jason
  6. ELLIOTT 770 sailboat for sale 25'3" length, 2400 lbs, shallow draft lifting keel bulb type 1.5' up / 5.75' down Reluctantly offering my 2004 (Hull Nr 14) Elliott 770 sailboat. Being a bit of a sail freak and consequently in the multihull yacht business (owner of Aeroyacht Ltd.) AERO is in excellent condition. Since owning her I started sorting her to get her to my standard. Mostly new running rigging, new lightweight 2nd generation Flexiteak deck inside and outside, reconditioned electrical system and outboard engine, hull refinished and buffed, brand new epoxy Hydrocote bottom , Silvertex cushions, clear carbon covered main bulkhead etc... I have also reconditioned the trailer, new LED lights, had axels rebuilt all 4 new tires mounted and bearings renewed. The trailer is zink galvanized and is in excellent condition. AERO hit 120mph behind a Porsche on a 1000 miles road trip. Inventory:12 sails, sailbag, stereo, rope bags, electrical panel, 2 Tactic Racemaster instruments, solar panel, Nissan 2HP outboard, ground tackle, fenders, docklines, trailer. Everything on the boat works and fuctions as it should. Mast raising and lowering is easy, 60 min launching There are few things that I would do to optimize shorthanded sailing. To do: 1.) There is about a 16" fisure on the top most ply of a nonstructural bulkhead that is t beneath cockpit sole. Its so minor and cosmetic that I rather sailed (and never got to repairing) 300$ should fix this. 2.) One hub grease cap on the trailer is missing. 3.) 2 Harken winches could use some grease. 4.) Inside as well as outside hull/deck joint although structurally completely sound and not leaking could need a bit reeming out old caulk and resealing ends of joints for cosmetics. Elliott 770 Specs: LOA: 25.26' BOA: 8.20' Draft: 1.58' up / 5.75' down (daggerboard keel type, fiberglass encased lead bulb) Displ: 2400 lbs Ballast: 772 lbs SA: 328 sqft Sail inventory: The boat comes with a complete set of working sails that are in various conditions. 5 main sails: carbon, smaller one kevlar and one dacron, 3 jibs spectra all same size, 4 spinnakers various sizes. AERO 2 is powered by a perfectly running 4 stroke, 2013 Nissan Marine 2 HP outboard. Mostly starts on the first pull (always fresh gas) The daggerboard case, which could be a problem area on many boats has been completely rebuilt using carbon reinforcing by previous owner. This area is completely trouble free. We posses all the manuals and full documentations. The boat is registered in NY, so is the trailer, both have current valid stickers. Reluctantly selling for the same price I paid. Price: 25,000 US$ boat on trailer located in water: Long Island, Setauket Harbor, NY for photos: http://www.aeroyacht.com/?p=18504 Owner of Aeroyacht Ltd. I am a broker, boat builder, yacht designer and sailor by obsession I am representing my personal family boat. Someone wishing to purchase the vessel sight unseen (as I did) - can do this with a peace of mind. The Elliott 770 posseses light air power yet weatherlyness with a crew of 3-6. She is only one of about 16 boats ever built in the US under NZ license. Unlike the J70 or J80 balsa cored hull, the Elliott 770 is foam core and the ability to lift the keel while sailing she is one of the only a handful of sportboats available in the US that changes draft. From less than 18" draft to 5.75' in seconds. Retractable carbon sprit, a spacious airy cabin that will sleep 4. She needs more sorting I feel to be perfect. Perfect as my 2 Star boats, 43' Outremer cat, Farrier F9XR, Flying Dutchman, Newick tri etc...were ? All boats are compromises but this little yacht has been the closest thing of perfection when it comes to beautiful lines, F1 style keel boat racing on Long Island Sound. Large cockpit, perfectly placed ergonomics and clean form. From my sailors mind she could easily be turned into a shorthanded Transat jewel to further explore Maine and beyond. Anyhow I have the plans for the waterballast ready ... From a designer's mind she has simple pure lines for a 25' monohull, absolutely stunning to look at and sail. Infinitely tunable sails, great cat inspired rig and responsive steering. She is lovingly cared for as she was part of my family such as all my boats have been. AERO 2 is presently being sailed by my family and 2 sons. Located in water in the most protected Long Island, NY coastal water. She is now siting on her mooring 100' from my home beach in plain sight. Thank You Gregor Tarjan Aeroyacht Ltd.
