      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.

FT 10 Hull 81 Heads West

23 posts in this topic

FT 10 # 81 Heads West

 

Seven days from today, FT 10 Hull # 81 will hitched up and towed west from Georgia to California. This boat has never been sailed and we just bought it for a song from Hiptrader. We will part with it for a slightly longer tune but interested parties from the east will have to act quickly if I am to stop the trucker. In the same purchase transaction with Hiptrader, we now also own FT 7.5 number one. This is the boat that sailed briefly in San Diego and then went to Key West and Annapolis. She is now parked in San Diego and is in great condition. Here again easterners need to move quickly if they would like a free tow from San Diego to Atlanta. Both boats have trailers. I'm not going to posts prices here for either boat but I will tell you that you will never find a better opportunity anywhere. It's best to call me on these boats as I don't think I want to write the price on anything other than a purchase agreement.

 

Best to everyone and please excuse my leave of absence.

Last spring, on an afternoon motorcycle jaunt from Valley Forge down to Decatur, I stopped by Lake Lanier to stretch my legs and did see, at a boat dealership, an FT 10 sitting on a trailer that looked to have never been commissioned. Looks to be high time this one got active !

Shark, I will be headed your way soon. Do you know anyone who would like to partner with me on a FT 7.5, preferably who can arrange dry storage at Waikiki YC. It would make a great friday night boat. And by the way FT 10 # 81 has been sold and will remain east of the Mississippi.

She is still in Ga, but will be headed to Louisville in March to be put together. Will be available for buyers in the East later this spring after I get her sorted out.

I don't think there is time to get the boat set up for NAs at this time as there are parts I am waiting for etc. Maybe for the next event down the road or up the road.

#81 headed to CT last Sunday with a new owner right next door to Red Stripe. This boat will finally get it's bottom wet and go play with Charlie.

It's about time Charlie gets a little od action. Maybe it will light his fire to head down to P-cola sometime.

Tom, - sorry I missed your note so long ago - wish you'd have PM'd me or something. Any of you guys plan to get out this way, Please - let me know directly and I'll do whatever I can to assist/get you sailing.

 

Would love to see the 7.5 in person - it seems like a good niche.

Aloha Shark,

I've wanted to track you down for some time but life got in the way. I am considering doing something in Hawaii with the FT 7.5, possibly a performance sailing school. I have a boat in the Ala Wai that we get to fairly regular, in fact I will be there sometime around June 1. I would love to meet up with you to get some local knowledge so email at tom@flyingtigerboats.com if you want to get together.

Mahalo, Tom Hirsh

Thank goodness we were only parked for a few minutes. If anyone else is thinking of coming through the Lincoln Tunnel it will cost you $32 one way.

 

The boat is in good hands and should be ready to race soon. I'm in line but backed up behind the Memorial Day crowd.
