      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.

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 ;-)

 

 

 

Nice one! Just out of curiosity... who was that handsome chap who was driving when the boat got laid down?

:D

....That would be the learner / driver that still has his P-plates on at 30kts off the breeze.... :blink:

 

We actually felt pretty good until that wipe out. Hence the slight tone off frustration in my voice.... :P

 

We had a great day out - First time ever surfing in that sort of seastate & breeze - Buying bigger blocks this week! ISAF & river sailing te next month or so, so probably wont get out like that again for a bit.

Much better in the longer races where they could stretch out and use their knowledge gained from having sailed there so often.

 

Well sailed boat but a tough act to follow for a new owner... or for (most) other S36CRs for that matter.

ww/lw are still our weakness. We's hates a breeze up the clacker. We desperately try to sail the angles / numbers, but takes serious discipline. Old story?? Sometimes when we have a reglar crew / helm combo hasppening it works real goood Get those soaks "ease away!!! happening!!! But alll good. When the angle is good (which is often), we hum!

had a young fella tell me they did 25 plus on a CR the other day. took a while to get off the floor and stop laffin. so yes...Poods has broken the mythical 16.6 and done 17. there's only one 36 that can do it and that's TWU. bet there was a fine jet of spray going straight down the companionway.

Yea for sure. Those boats go very weird when pushed to the limit...and beyond.

 

We buried the beak-end and spun it going nearly 15 speed in 27 kts TWS sliding down a nice roller in King's Cup in my BH36 many years ago during one of those rare, super windy, sunny Phuket days. Superb!

 

Never saw the mythical 17...hmmm. This would sound wicked on the way there though ;)

In God we trust. Everyone else must provide data.

 

 

 

 

I've attached the plot of the day's race, along with some data from the geep. It clocked us at 15kt average over 14 seconds. On the log (calibration had been checked) we had >17kts B)

 

A mighty fine day on the ocean (until we wiped out & blew the kite block....) :(

Did 17.8 in Bass St in a Hobart couple years ago, under a Frac kite. And i'm pretty sure the owner got higher going thru the heads one day on an ebb tide. Can't remember what speed he got tho.

EVO my precious little S36 plonker!!! We are one step ahead of you...

 

 

... a little concept video we did about 6 months ago. Not sure if it is funny or just weird, but see it through...... I have to stop doing these vids peesed! DOH! Just made a koont of myself again ;)

 

I tips my hat to Captain Carlos - His mighty keel repairs gave us the strength & confidence to do what we do, and also helped us with a 150kg weight gain & 50 IRC rating points B)

 

DC my friend, I totally believe the Bass Strait story. John & the boys told us many stories of the speeds they achieved surfing to Gero, so I tips me hat to you too!! And they would NEVER let the numbers get in the way of a good beer tale :P But we are just not that tough..... :o

 

 

But let there be no more talk of launching Sydney yachts from sky scrapers!!!! Let us celebrate the best thing that Sydney has produced other than Sydney draft beer (1983) and "Steak & Kidney" (1987)....!!!!! :lol:

 

I'm excited!!!!

that's rubbish....how would anyone know what she actually weighed previously? Especially anyone from there.....you have much to learn about Sydney yachts poods.

 

were you actually told that??? oh boy....she would have been lighter....not heavier. dopey facks need someone to blame for not doing their homework properly at a guess. Just not possible to have come out of the shed heavier mate. Look elsewhere

 

Her rating changed with new sails and an endorsed cert....done there. Never checked here and then there's a history to that as well. Ask Ray Carless.

 

anyway...onya and thanks for calling me little. that hasn't happened since i was eight.

The Byzantine workings of Sydney yachts! :o I have come to understand the less I know of this, the wiser I am. ;)

 

So where do the S36 weights for IRC come from?

 

I note from the certs that they are all a bit different, so I assume that it is not a standard factory weight. I'm pretty sure John never weighed TWU, and I assume ray did not weigh her either? Notwithstanding that, she came up 150kg heavier to her previous weight when we stripped her out for the scales 6 months ago. I told a lie - IRC went from 1.064 to 1.057, a bit due to sails sizes, but I belive most due to weight. We've since crept up to 1.059 with new bigger main.

 

Is now a good time for me to shut up? :lol:

 

But wait, there is still time for some more shameless self promotion, and another TWU win - Best Dressed yacht in the Chrismas twlight sail this week....

 

Have a great Chritsmas & All the best for 2012! :D

Yup! :)

 

It's now in HKG and getting a new keel (designed by Andy Dovell too!) so she can meet the offshore STIX number requirements.

 

Still a very competitive boat (the original BH36) and one of my faves (that I've owned). Now called "Talking Head" in RHKYC...don't know, maybe owner is in broadcasting or something like that.

john...the helm of that boat has delivered (in very short order) some of the strangest experiences in my time afloat. besides extreme discomfort. she's an absolute beauty (while the rudder is in) and a tribute to Pete M's care.

So what is the definitive list of S36 types / models, and the differences..?? I figured the Whistler results would flush out the LH boys B)

 

LH is a BH36..?? Is that mast head no..??

 

Whistler - MBD36 - Is fractional rigged yes..??

 

...and then the various Sydney 36 models came along a bit later..?? S36's had slightly deeper keels I believe.

 

But they are all of the same peerage..?? :unsure:

 

Should I give up my quest to understand the Sydney 36 lineage.... Or is it just way too early in the new year.... :lol:

the fracs were the MBD sunsail boats iirc. 7/8th rig

 

MH's were the originals BH 36's....keel shape on all of them changed with twu...several times....to what the CR's are today....only a few (?) made with the swim step stern. CR changed the deck.

 

sail what ya got....potentialy the best all rounder though only scored a few times in real comp.

 

there is no lineage...they are all different and the build quality varies as much as their weight. best build is the original. LH. daylight second

Just a roughy, but here goes:

 

Original boats had the larger mast head rigs, a beut looking navy blue boat called Kingtide was the original timber plug. Local hero, Tuffies Foxy Lady, the original Amante amongst others. The original BH36's.

 

In that build process, Sunsail had about 6 dumbed down versions built with shorter rigs for the charter fleet. These included one of the boats that Evo mentioned up thread. Saltshaker amongst others. Definitely mast head rigs, just shorter than the earlier IMS models.

 

After those, there was a great boat called Pamela C built for a car dealer in Pittwater. It had a carbon mast with non-overlapping rig. It had the same keel as the IMS boats but I believe that has been changed since. It did very well in the early days of IRC and was a well campaigned boat that was put together well. The Carbon mast was a glamour for it's time.

 

Next cab of the rank was a current MHYC boat but was originally for a pittwater owner called "Stormaway". 2nd boat with a swept back rig, although this one was alloy. Conventional poles but has since been retro fitted with a bowsprit I think. This boat was the first with a heavier T bulb fitted to the keel.

 

Following on from that, Sydney Yachts launched the "Sports" which was basically Stormaway but with a long retractable bowsprit. TWU was one of the first with Supernova and a QLD boat which is still on the market called Springfield or somthing like that all similar boats. There were about 5 or 6 of these built. Supernova had a stepped in stern, but still an enclosed cockpit.

 

After these boats, a new deck mould was built, a smaller fixed/plug in bowsprit added and a new refined keel and possibly rudder was fitted, this became the CR. Plenty of these built, one of the first was the new Amante. The old IMS/masthead Amante was sold to Hobart and became Pieces and now Whistler. It now has the swept back rig but still the original keel AFAIK. As I said, a couple of handfuls made of this model.

 

One of the last was The Philosphers club. Less said about this franken boat the better. Ugliest boat on the water today. Stripped out downstairs, tiller steer, stern scoop, extended dick on the bow to allow for bigger jibs etc etc....

 

I know there will most likely be a few errors in the above but I reckon it makes a good story.....

Whistler has a Syd 38 rig in it and the sistership down at Kettering is masthead and both are very different to a Syd 36 ie more freeboard narrower and narrow stern

 

Maram then Amante now Picses originally had masthead with checks now has masthead with swept spreaders

 

Had IMS type keel not t keel

 

That boat was just a fucking disgrace when launched

 

Owner left racing for good

I know you’ve all been hiding this truth from me – For my own good. But I did not know when to stop pushing, and now I know. Oh well, even trailer trash has it’s uses… :lol::lol::lol:

Monkey shit -- Sydney Yachts

Had not thought of it like that!

Just a roughy, but here goes:

 

Original boats had the larger mast head rigs, a beut looking navy blue boat called Kingtide was the original timber plug. Local hero, Tuffies Foxy Lady, the original Amante amongst others. The original BH36's.

 

In that build process, Sunsail had about 6 dumbed down versions built with shorter rigs for the charter fleet. These included one of the boats that Evo mentioned up thread. Saltshaker amongst others. Definitely mast head rigs, just shorter than the earlier IMS models.

 

After those, there was a great boat called Pamela C built for a car dealer in Pittwater. It had a carbon mast with non-overlapping rig. It had the same keel as the IMS boats but I believe that has been changed since. It did very well in the early days of IRC and was a well campaigned boat that was put together well. The Carbon mast was a glamour for it's time.

 

Next cab of the rank was a current MHYC boat but was originally for a pittwater owner called "Stormaway". 2nd boat with a swept back rig, although this one was alloy. Conventional poles but has since been retro fitted with a bowsprit I think. This boat was the first with a heavier T bulb fitted to the keel.

 

Following on from that, Sydney Yachts launched the "Sports" which was basically Stormaway but with a long retractable bowsprit. TWU was one of the first with Supernova and a QLD boat which is still on the market called Springfield or somthing like that all similar boats. There were about 5 or 6 of these built. Supernova had a stepped in stern, but still an enclosed cockpit.

 

After these boats, a new deck mould was built, a smaller fixed/plug in bowsprit added and a new refined keel and possibly rudder was fitted, this became the CR. Plenty of these built, one of the first was the new Amante. The old IMS/masthead Amante was sold to Hobart and became Pieces and now Whistler. It now has the swept back rig but still the original keel AFAIK. As I said, a couple of handfuls made of this model.

 

One of the last was The Philosphers club. Less said about this franken boat the better. Ugliest boat on the water today. Stripped out downstairs, tiller steer, stern scoop, extended dick on the bow to allow for bigger jibs etc etc....

 

I know there will most likely be a few errors in the above but I reckon it makes a good story.....

Is Philosphers measured for IRC with all these mods? Sounds like it is no longer of the same design year!

Nope.

 

Pisces is still Pisces.

 

Keel was owner modded -- more lead I understand.

Rig is still MH, but swept.

Whistler has a different rig.. 2-spreader frac

 

Whistler_8836_SH11.jpg

Interesting staysail.

Sailed against these guys in the Rolex passage series and followed their run to Hobart, well sailed, maybe they should have done the M.H.Y.C. short offshore series, if they were here, against Philosphers Club, Onya, La Altra Donna, etc, to see how well an earlier Sydney 36 could go in short circuit stuff???

Guys - Whistler is not a Sydney 36 - she was built locally (in Tas) and is called a MBD 36 design. See Yacht Description S2H

They don't want to listen, they just want to believe!

 

BTW what is story with the other one at Kettering that I have never seen off its mooring.

Blue and Red stripes with MH rig

Who built them both as well?

Maram started with in line 3 spreader tin mast with over lapping headsails and IMS keel

 

Sold and became Amante

 

Sold and became Picses and new owner over time went swept masthead moves chain plates to gunwhale and swept the spreaders and now uses non overlaps

 

Also added lead to get AVs I think as sure a hell did not have it as Maram

 

Original owner go completely shafted by Sydney Yachts.

 

Ordered the boat just before Sydney got the AC 40 deal and had to make the 40s so went to back of production line and when boat delivered is was just crap. (like mastsheet base fixed to cockpit floor with self tappers)

 

But sure was quick in light air!

Pamela C is now in Geelong renamed Peregrine and has done well for her owner there too. Still a very fast 36fter by any standards and a better boat offshore with the closed in transom. Carbon rig is still a glamour. This 1999 iteration of the design gave Sorro a bit of a hurry up in some of their races when 'Philanderers Club' was down here. Her owner now keen to move on so Peregrine/Pammy C is up for sale and a good buy for someone looking for a proven fast Syd 36. Read further back up this thread for references as to how good!.

Posting links to on-line ads is a no no according to the 'buy an ad' enforcers so you can PM me for details instead :o

Your right, $100 bucks what a great price!!!!

 

Now add in the cost to move the mould anywhere and then storage.

 

I've owned moulds before and now and just because they are cheap it doesn't mean they are a bargain.

 

The trouble with them is the cost to store them if you don't have the space. The other thing with these moulds is you need to have a Crain to move them about every time you want to work on them.

 

In saying that they are a great buy if you live close by and have the room for them.

She should be east of Perth by now, acheduled to arrive Sydney City Marine next Wed. We are flying over Tue arvo, probably stay at the salubrious Vibe Hotel in Rushcutters bay. Last time I was there having a beer was 1985! Plan is to have her back together & into CYC at beer o'clock Friday. Then finalise Cat 1 survey. We'll be back in November for her first hit-out in the Cabbage Patch Race.

 

So Local hero heading south, Whistler no doubt, looks like we have ourselves a race! ;)

westie culture :P

 

A young Afghani gets signed up by the Bulldogs...

 

Noel Cleal flies to Kabul to watch a young Afghani star in a local game

 

of rugby played with an inflated goat's bladder. He is suitably

 

impressed, gets on the phone to Des Hasler, signs the boy on the spot

 

and arranges for him to come over to Sydney.

 

 

 

Two weeks later The Doggies are 12 - 0 down to The Sea Eagles at home

 

with only 20 minutes left - it's been a hard day at the office.

 

Hasler gives the young Afghani winger the nod, and on he goes.

 

 

 

The lad is a sensation, playing an absolute blinder. He scores 3

 

tries in 20 minutes, converts all of them himself from out wide and wins

 

the game for Canterbury . The Belmore Oval fans are delighted, the

 

players and the coach are delighted and the media love the new star of

 

Rugby League.

 

 

 

When the player comes off the ground he phones his mum to tell her about

 

his first day in the NRL.

 

 

 

"Hello mum, guess what?" he says "I played for 20 minutes today, we were

 

12 - 0 down but I scored 3 tries - they call it a hat-trick - and we

 

won. Everybody loves me, the fans, the press, they all love me - I'm

 

so happy."

 

 

 

"Just wonderful," says his mum, "Let me tell you about my day ...

 

... Your father got shot in the street, your sister and I were ambushed

 

and assaulted - she would have been raped but for a passing police

 

vehicle. Your brother has joined a local gang of looters and set fire

 

to some buildings and all while you tell me that you were having a great

 

time!!"

 

 

 

The young lad is very upset. "What can I say mum, but I'm really sorry."

 

 

 

"Sorry?!!! Sorry?!!!" says his mum,

 

 

 

"It's your bloody fault we came to Bankstown to live in the first place!"
