      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.

I owned one for a couple years, nice cruising boat for a couple. Sails well in breeze but not a very good light air boat. If you are looking for a small cruising boat I'd recommend it, not a racer though..pretty slow.

I've been sailing on one for about 20 years. Very nice boat - faster than any cruising boat up to 35 feet, comfortable cockpit, enough room in the cabin, no significant problems. Anythin specific you want to know?

Just guessing, but I'd doubt it's faster than a J30, J32, J33, or J34c. And that's just in J Boats past line up. Pretty bold statement saying it's faster than any cruising boat up to 35 feet.

PHRF Rating is about the same as a J-24's. Faster then most cruiser/racers of the same size/vintage (Pearson 28-2, Tartan 28, Catalina 28, etc., and many older 30 footers (Tartan 30, Oday 30, Pearson 30, etc). I'd say the J32/34C are legitimate cruisers, but the 30/33 are on the racer/cruiser side of things, and not as fair a comparison. Your point, however, is valid. There are a fair number of sub 35ft cruising boats that are faster.

Cal 28-2

Laser 28

Roughly the same or better performance. The J28's stern section is not good looking at all. The 32 & 42 has a better looking one

I think they are pretty nice looking boats, especially for a 28 footer. Nice sailing boats too. However, the 34c is a better choice(why would I think that????)

The Andrews 28 is pretty spartan compared to the J28.

Talked to a few owners and for some reason they went with a complex HIGH DOLLAR (for a 28')rudder that can be fun

The problem with that rudder set up is the Harken bearings were junk. If they have not been replaced, they will have to be. I've owned a j/37 and now a j/34c and both had bearing issues. I now have the jefa bearings and no issues. The Harkens locked up solid and would not turn at all. This is a "must fix" on any J/boat with harkens that has seen salt.

AND the Andrews is just as ugly as the J28. WAY too high of freeboard.

In 28 feet its hard to get standing headroom without some freeboard. In a light boat like the Andrews...its even harder. But not too many people these days will buy a boat and use it for cruising without the standing headroom part. Not to say it can't be done, or that many haven't already done it. Just that it won't sell today as a cruising boat 'less you can standup in it.

 

Don't think the Andrews meant as a cruiser anyway...its more a racer that one can comfortably weekend/overnight. Or have 4 guys stay on during an away regatta.

The Andrews rates 168 ish?

 

A quick web search found an article on the Andrews that quotes a Vancouver PHRF of 89. 168 doesn't seem right at all.

I've owed one for 7 years now. Beer can wednesday nite and some weekend racing with dacron sails. The boat will compete PHRF with any crusiing boat under 35'. I regularly complete againest a C&C 33, (beat them), a C&C 35 (flip a coin)and an Ericson 32, (70/30 I win) I can fly a chute with three guys and cruise to BI for a four day weekend in comfort. In this catagory of sailing it's ususlly the sailor not the boat that wins

 

You will be hard pressed to find a better 28' boat package. My next boat will be a 34c or 35 c when I can afford the 2x price.
