      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.

Bloody old many times recycled design now going back to what.... Local Hero?. Pamela C was a good one early on too but they have had their day. Heavy, not fast by todays standards or maybe not so well campaigned? Grossly overpriced for the 36CRs with some paying more than $AUD350Ks for what?, Some pissed off owners hooked up by Tacka have taken a hell of a bath to get out of them. Yesterdays boat. Move along, nothing to see here.

Under $300k??? No way. The latest batch of 36CRs were well over $300k on the water. I know of at least two that were over $350k.

Yep, well over $AUD300k for the newest iteration, the 36CRs through 2006-9.

How many were built?

 

Not certain if it was the CR but there was a S36 for sale in (Annapolis?) that I looked at many years ago for USD $135k but it got snapped up immediately before I could even call the broker.

 

Maybe it's not the most ultra modern design but good designs stand the test of time, sometimes new designs don't. Price often has no bearing on the durability of a design: there are lots of boats that are great boats but just not many of them around.

Won't comment on price or it's relevence, but the sole example of the 3600 variant ( FINS, In Hawaii ) has certainly proven a very well put-together vessel, fast and comfortable in our at-times spirited conditions.

 

The 'convertible' feature of the 3600 ( standard mast-mounted pole & conventional kites + a robust demountable sprit & big assym ) is really neat - too bad it never caught on.

Sorro's yacht is now a Syd 37.5 since adding the sugar scoop combined with a wooden boom and a small bow sprit. Not the standard 36CR It is now a Bucko / Sydney design.

There aren't any other 36's built like Local Hero. special boat that while the rudder stays in but no matter what has been done none of them are going to go much faster than 16 knots....and then it's wet....bow wave spume comes inward from the gunwhale and straight down the companionway hatch.

 

great boats to weather in all conditions....the MH muuch better in light slop than the CR and S. TWU in mod/hvy conds uphill is unreal. thing flies eh Poods

We are absolutely stoked with TWU. We have her flying uphill - Consistantly beating the Mumm30's, Farr30 & F36 (and they are all VERY well appointed & sailed boats). We're getting the hang of the assies, but still room to improve.

 

Our rating went from 1.066 last year to 1.064 this year. We then had all her sails remeasured (all slighlty smaller) and re-weighed (+150kg - some earlier keel repairs), which brought the rating down to 1.057.

 

And seeing as I'm blowing my own horn, here's some proof there's life in the S36 yet: http://freodoctor.com.au/index.php?option=com_frontpage&Itemid=1

 

.....and even some video of how we did it...:

:D

 

I'm excited!!

Poodle56 your rating is still a bit high for the 36. I sailed on Aileron a few years back and won our div for southport and Hammo with a rating of 1.048. Sorro also won the IRC champs when he first got the boat and his rating was 1.053, ever since he has started modifying the boat and sails he has struggled to recapture that form. This was also evident when they brought out the 36CRX which was lighter with a few other mods but has never sailed to its rating either.

 

Good boats especially when you can get a few of them lined up in a fleet. Good luck with your sailing.

No just another Bucko idea. Much lighter than an alloy boom. Very deep top to bottom. More sail area not rated.

Gimme a break. There is NOTHING dull about racing a SYD36.

 

It is a very stimulating and fun yacht to send around any race course...and this is coming from someone who owned/raced a TP52 for nearly 3 years.

 

They're shitloads of fun!

Sorro's boat is close to the ugliest boat on the harbour now.... Shame really. The boom is hideous, the little bobsaty/prod which the forestay is attached to to allow for bigger jibs is just as ugly. the scoop, well when I saw them fitting it I choked. Boat got re-weighed last week, would be keen to see what it came out at as a lot of the interior has been stripped....... Would like to know if the hull factor has been adjusted accordingly........ Surely IRC/RORC would have something to say about that boom, there is a rig factor after all that could take care of that.......

 

Regardless of the franken boat S36, yeah, real nice boats and the later versions were an awesome bit of kit upwind in any breeze, but just generally good all around boats. Hope someone picks up the moulds.

Bucko's ideas should have been banned after that Mr Kite debacle... Luckily that boat has been salvaged and is now a really good looking boat that seems to sail pretty well.

My cunning plan is working!!!!!!! My faux play for these moulds has drawn out all you S36 owners / crew / groupies & other hanger-onners likes bees to the honey pot. What I really want is for you all to PM me with your contact details so I can swap notes & get a few more tips. Our world domination plan is to make TWU the fastest S36 on the West Coast!!!! :angry:

 

Our IRC saga is long & woeful - We started at 1.074 (one decimal zero seven four), and have only just got it down to 1.057. Ironically with no physical changes, just updated measurements and ensuring the cert data is accurate. We've had her 10 months now, and have needed brain upgrades to accomodate everything we have learned (It caused me to forget how to ride a bike).

 

I only recently trawled through all the old SA forums, and found an enourmous volume of rubbish posts related to TWU & other S36's. Fun reading but not a lot of useful info.

 

So drop me a PM - And I'll also tell you about our cracker start last Saturday....!!!! :lol:

Qu. Wouldnt the extra length + larger sail area + stripped insides etc be starting to err on the side of them getting bumped up to IRC div B? Cant seem to find the div C ratings from the previous regattas atm but would think that must be getting towards the top of it? Im sure they have it sussed and are sitting nicely just under the rating cut off...

That would be right Flatty, I sold a used one a couple of years ago for a bit more than $300k and that owner dropped heaps on his buy in price.

 

Pick of the earlier boats was Hammo overall winning "Pamela C" with the closed in transom a la Local Hero but with a carbon stick. That is still a highly competitive boat, now renamed "Peregrine" and sailing out of Geelong in VIC. She was third in Div 2 at the Audi Sydney regatta and she just happens to be for sale with.... oh right, I know buy an ad :lol:

We now rank just above the middle. I see we carry more sail area, and weight about middle of the bunch (based on DLR x L - crew x 85)

Poods a few answers to your comparision questions,

 

The TCC for Onya looks a bit out and more in line with the origional 36CR, there was a new 36CRX built two years back which is 1000kg lighter with a bunch of bucko mod's to it memory has its rating around 1.068 when launched.

Equinox is parked in middle harbour somewhere with only limited racing under a new owner, origional owner now has a RP42.

Eye Appeal racing out of Sydney 1.053

Philosophers is no longer a true 36 as the bow was changed to move the forestay further forward, plywood boom, sugar scoop and who knows what else has been done out of site.

I also heard a rumor the hero might be moving into retirement with crew moving to a bigger boat

Hopefully, will venture north (Hamo) pickup another Audi?, rain on Sorro's parade? with Canberra Yacht Club crew. Usual crew moved on.Evo mentioned TCC now at 1.059 - correct (up from 1.056). The never ending story of 'why'- have done a lot of research and referred to RORC again! Yacht, since I have owned it, has been weighed, remeasured and 'keel' type revised and in each case penalised. Granted original information supplied (before my time) probably 'sus'. To remain competitive reduced sail area (substantially) - Genoas to jibs / main reduction (roach etc). Sail areas are now I believe well under the competition. The only advantage is weight which is a great help! competing against newer Sydney 36s offshore - heavier/stiffer.

Don't know if anyone has read 'IRC 2011 TCC Changes' re 'Light Racing Boats' - L/H is the exception to what they are saying. The only change to my certificate has been "HF'(5.7 to 5.9) resulting I believe in my higher TCC. As far as I know the TCCs for the other Sydney 36s I compete against have all gone down (age factor) despite their 'HFs' going up- to be verified (perhaps someone can help?). If this is the case the system is 'F'. Methinks, a recent Hobart result (perhaps Hamo last year)has had an influence on RORC thinking re 'HF' despite their comments that it is not a handicap system whereby a good crew penalised. Please note we achieved 3rd in division (Hobart) TCC/HF up,would love to know how "koomooloo" (1st in division) and L'altra Donna (2nd in division) fared with their TCC/HFs.

Feedback appreciated, also, is there any difference between a BH36 and a Sydney36 Hull. RORC says there is!

Appreciate help from 'tuf-luf' re BH36s. 'Foxy Lady' IRC 2005 Certificate shows 'HF' at 9.3 (Local Hero 9.5) Believe they are sister yachts produced within months of one another (late 1995/1996). Was there a 'hull' change or did 'Foxy Lady' have more creature comforts such as refrigeration etc to warrant a lower 'HF'

l'A D unchanged at 1.065. that number is likely to be falling due to remeasuing some sails and some scissors

Foxy/BH36 was all stock down below. I removed 200kg of lead bricks previous owner put beneath the floorboards (in a lame attempt to manipulate the rating) as soon as I took ownership. Apart from that, it was all original below decks (i.e. no refrigeration, only metho stove, closed head, functional forward berth etc).

 

No hull difference as far as I know. LH might've been one of the *ahem* more competitively constructed hulls that Basho (may he RIP) was famous for (?).

$300k!!?? Ouch.

 

I paid SGD65k for my BH36 (aka SYD36 ver1.o) in 2000.

 

Someone needed cash...right place, right time.

 

Loved that yacht...lots.

 

Yep, well over $AUD300k for the newest iteration, the 36CRs through 2006-9.

Pick of the earlier boats was Hammo overall winning "Pamela C"

Ditto re Pammie C....

 

Talk about bringing back very fond memories of a most awesome, successful & fun week. One of the many highlights that week was the midweek crew party in the penthouse at the Reef....Col & Stan playing dualing banjoes (think Tom & Phil Emmanual - that good!) it was brilliant!

 

Lots lots more memories...what a week, what a great boat :)

Silver Fox,

 

There does seem to be something fishy going on with Syd 36 IRC Certs and probably every other boat depending on the whim of the RORC. I have just looked back at some old certs I have and can advise hull factor 9.5 in 2006 & 2008 and 9.7 in 2009??

 

Not sure how an existing designs hull factor moves 0.1 a year over 4 years???? Anyone from RORC like to explain if your reading .....

Morning All,

 

Good to hear some useful S36 feedback. I though you lot might know more about the design differnces of a BH36, and the various S36 models (S, CR, etc) ;) TWU was hull #3623 (S36 number 23..??) completed 22/3/04

 

Our HF was 9.5 in 2008, increased to 9.7 in 2009, and stayed there since. I thought that might also explain why our rating was higher, but at our recent IRC forum, Glen ASSURED us that HF had an almost trivial impact on overall IRC rating....

 

We went from 1.066 (2010) to 1.064 this year (age allowance, no changes). We then had her remeasured & weighed (sails smaller, hull heavier), and IRC reduced to 1.057.

 

With regard to rationalising the various S36 IRC ratings, I reckon the order of importance would be:

1. Weight

2. Sail area

3. Rig, etc

(Assuming of course that hulls are affectively idential - BH36..??)

 

You can determine weight from DLR on the IRC list, and I'm still working on normalising this (delta speed (& IRC) proportional to 1/6 delta weight...???)

 

It would be great to add in sail area too, but not readily avialable.

 

Time for a work break, I might try & crunch a few S36 IRC numbers later based on weight adjustment & see how they look...

 

Poods B)

You are kidding me right!

 

You believe what Yachting Arsehats say in respect to any issue with IRC

 

Simple question

 

If Hf does not matter why do they keep changing it even though boat configuration has not changed.

 

Alternatively it changes beacause a whole lot of boats had suspect application forms to start with.

 

The only instance where Hf has changed may be because of the keel type amendment two years ago

 

This of course demonstrates the HF bullshit as the keel type amendments reflects stabilty which is speed by another word

Hull factor = fudge factor.

Bingo! I new it - was just looking in the wrong thread.

 

Before anyone pays 300k for an s36, you can have my BH41 for only $300,001.00. I will take Aus OR US dollors at that price.

Thanks 'Tuf -Luf', your Bh36 sounds identical to mine and I note your other comments!

You probably noted my original comments in the 'thread' re weight, measurements and 'keel' type and how I have been punished on each occasion. However, what really hurt was 'keel' type (torpedo). RORC jumped on me saying no not according to our records. On a previous 'Anarchy' thread there was a picture of your yacht - same 'keel'?

A lot of 'blood, sweat & tears' gone into making the yacht competitive and with recent increase in TCC totally frustrated.

What you have really just said is that your boat in just another Sydney 36 that had a false keel description when first measured at launch

Lydia probably 'spot-on' re Keel Type. Believe L/H was the first production boat, 'Kingtide' the plug (wooden?) and possibly a lot of stuff (weight and measurements) may have been accepted from the latter without true verification including the 'keel'

Anyway would still like to verify if there is any difference between the 'mold' for a BH36 (1995 vintage) and Sydney 36s produced since. Usual channels for answers (Sydney Yachts) of no help.'Tuf-Luf' suggested no difference.

RORC believes there is a difference in 'hull' shape?

the franken syd36 looks a pretty likely contender for southport. with the sugar scoop and mods, their rating has dropped from 1.065 to 1.061, going to be hard to beat in irc4

I can't believe the molds didn't sell, just been re listed. B)

 

 

Are they back on still?

 

Tough business... even if you got them for free you've got to be willing to sink £20k into them for moving and storage and you still might not get a boat out of them.

 

Then you are looking at about £70-£100k just for materials.

Plus about 5,000 man hours if you know what you are doing and have experienced builders who can knock out a boat that quick. They probably could only get that low after the first 5.

 

 

The Luctor / Lutra tooling is also for sale.... not sure how long that has been for sale.

no where near that much for the boat itself

 

£ 30k max,probably far less, look the price of two flying tigers as a guide, probably a similar mass in polyester, fibreglass and lead

 

no carbon no epoxy ya know

Then that means the surviving Sydney 36 must be worth a lot more - Like an Amy Whinehouse CD!!!! :lol:

 

Whilst the boys have been doing the S36 proud at Hammo, "This Way Up" has been doing our own litle bit here on the West Coast. We've just headed back up the creek to Freshie from Freo, after having a cracker Winter Series with the FSC Valmadre & Inshore Series (TA will vouch for me here!!!) Our latest video, hot off the iMac is below. I tried to load it onto GoPro Friday, but my concentration span with confusing websites runs out after 7 seconds. Unless there's cleavage to keep me focussed. I'll try & email it instead....

 

Turn the sound up loud......

Yes you are most likely right.

 

My numbers were based on something I did with sprint from SP systems on a slightly bigger scale. The foam and epoxy was about £25k for that.

 

Most of the time the costs seem reasonable-ish. Until you add labour.

Time for rehab Poods...

 

Yes he did have a cracking series, for a past S&S 34 sailor...

 

So your playing the futures market in S36's now Poods, me thinks you should be talking with Albany Guy, right down his alley.

 

Here you go you tech dweeb.

 

 

Cheers for the beers and cheers on Sat night, just what was needed.

Thx TA - That's what I was trying to do!!! Now how about front page of FD...??? laugh.gif

 

Actually is was a UFO34 - The "souped up" SS34 tongue.gif And I'm really not into boat building - Very tough business in this country - Capital & labour intensive, & ultra competetive in a small market sad.gif

 

I've emailed it in for GoPro Friday - We'll have to see whether it rises to the top of the swill cool.gif

No futures market if there are no moulds but hey that doesn't stop the crack heads on Wall St so let's create a derivative contract of our own.

Need a catchy name for it though. Any ideas? I'll write you into a piece of the action.

Good one TA. I remember those days. One of our crew sold a single share in the week before the Hobart race and gifted the owner a new spinnaker halyard and a slightly used Hood No 1 from Balandra - as well as paying for the vittling and beer!

 

Can't go wrong!

Life Buoy,

 

Gantlet is a great boat and we worked very hard for that win.

 

She is a stock standard 36 sports. We carry a assi on a re-trackable pole that is 1.8 m long, so we need to sail the angles down wind which can be our down fall some times. Other that it's a fun boat.

OK you Sydney 36 plonkers, who's still following this thread...?????

 

We've made a new video (or the first in a while worth watching) - The 48nm Coventry reef race last Saturday. Was pretty full-on. Gets better towards the 5.00 mark.

 

Enjoy.

 

Poods ;-)
