      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.

Looks great. Just a couple of points: Only 1 set of spreaders is allowed under GP26 class rules, and also the sheer 'must be a fair, concave curve in profile view'...you might want to get a measurement clarification on the last one (i.e. is 'concave' up or down) before you go much further, as your sheer looks convex to me? Keep us updated though with your progress!

The shear line looks pretty straight so it is most likely OK under the rules. As for the class rules some changes have been made in the last month which would allow double spreaders on aluminum spars and carbon to used in the keel fin with some weight adjustment plus other changes. Please go to the ORC.org site to download the GP26 current rule set.

 

On the build it great to see another boat getting started.

Since 2003, we have been developing a class 8-meter trailer sportboat. www.open800.ru

It was the handicap class, but last year we decided to move on box rules - GP26.

This new project, in accordance with the GP26 rules.

This year will be built three boats.

Materials - SP Systems

Mast - carbon, "Selden masts"

Deck gear - Harken

Winches - Harken

Halyards - 1 x 20.2PTA

Primary - 2 x 20.2PTA

Rudder - all carbon

Hi MTihonov,

 

Are you using tooling from your first GP26 or is this build entirely new?

What are you doing differently with your second boat?

 

The speed at which the boat is going together is impressive, I wish mine was moving along as fast.

Thanks, Kevin!

Is a new project.

For new boat made some changes.

1. More powerful hullform to increase upwind and especially close reaching performance in strong wind.

2. Tuned transom height and form for expected heel angles and boat speed. To minimise wetted surface for light airs, and to maximise effective lenght when sailing at heel and speed.

3. To improve dynamic bow lift LCB a little moving aft, also moving keel and rig aft.

Which is the old, which is the new?

I'm guessing the sections with the slight knuckle in the topsides are the new improved hull form?

This project looks great. I can't believe how quickly you are working considering it is a custom project.

 

This last photo really shows the power of your hull form. Looking forward to seeing the boat finished.

We expect weight of the boat about 1000 kg (minimum class weight) with 500 kg keel.

Hull weight at this stage - 350 kg

Who is the 3rd boat for? Where are all these boat going once you are done with them? Have you thought about making them for other people?

The third boat is for Russia too. Our sportboat class had switched to the GP26 box rules in 2010.As for my last project, the third boat will be used to make the mold and we already have two orders for the season 2012.

where is the Caspian boat located?

 

In Aktau, Kazakhstan

 

 

 

 

I will be there on Monday and Tuesday next week and travel there a few times a year, maybe ask the owner to pm me some contact details so we can catch up.

Is that roller furler under the deck or on the deck? Is roller allowed by the rules?

 

On that picture where you broke your mast I don't see the part of the mast that is going throught the cabin.

Do you have that different from the windseeker?

1. Why not?

2. You don't see that part because it is not present. It was the deck stepped mast.

3. Yes

 

We almost complete hull #7.

On photo - hull #4

I think it is very useful to have roller under the deck, especially on sports boat where you don't want to spent too much time on the foredeck.

Does all your boats have deck steped mast?

Is aluminium pole under the deck (from top of the cabin to the keel step) enough support?

 

Congratulations on 6 hulls!
