      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.

Tiger 11.5 ?

Bob, I really enjoyed my FT10. My dream boat is something like a SC37 or a J111. Doesn't need to be as nice down stairs as a SC37. A small gally, small berths and a nav station. Boat needs to be capable of offshore work and bouy racing. No more than a 7ft 6in draft. planning hull and overall fast, faster than a J111 is a must. Am I crazy? Can it be done and for how much?

Perhaps if asked in the CA forum you'd get a better response, but there WAS a plan for a FT 12 that fizzled for some reason.

 

One thing is a boat in that size is just a LOT more than just 6 feet longer, so shipping & many other aspect become much more expensive.

No you are not crazy, and it already has been done.

 

If you are interested and can handle few more inches of draft, I know someone who already has a boat that you described; a 37.5' Goetz built flyer, well under 9,000 lbs with a full cruising interior and ~6'-3' headroom.

George how fast is it? Will it get up?

 

Thought about the Farr, but would like a more modern hull and a Assy is a must.

Port tack:

I never say, "It can't be done." If I did there would be no FT10m, no Baba 30 and no Bob Perry. It can always be done. Little by nlittle you just strip away the parts that won't work and in the end you have a good boat.

I think Schooner Creek could build it reasonably but they sure can't compete with a used production boat. We'd have to do some preliminary drawings and have SC take a look to get a good idea of a price. When you finish digesting all the advice you are getting here I'd be willing to talk to you about a project. Glad you are enjoying the 7.5.

Something close- look in Perry on Design, Amati. ( No, she's NOT for sale, but the design might amuse you.) Effortless speed. Schooner Creek build. 40'. 9600 lbs. A bit deeper than you want. Skinny.

 

I for one think she would make nice series boat. You would want masthead everything no doubt.

 

:lol:

Nope, 4-6 feet shorter LOA and max draft of 7.6ft. So shrink it down and maybe. Didn't know Bob didn't draw the 13.5 interesting. Wish i could warm up to the J 111.

Lake:

Only in the mind of my clients. It just died a slow death as the economy crashed. It might come back to life but if it does it will just look like an old design to me and there is probably not a line on it that I wouldn't change today. That happens over time.

Bob is always the diplomat, and seems like he has no gripes, but...

 

Why is it called the 13.8 when it is really 13.41?

 

And it doesn't quite look like a Perry.

 

But it does look pretty good!

The design is mine as rendered by Ivan. Simple as that. Can't remember why there is a LOA disrepancy. Ivan is currently doing a 3d model of a 29' powerboat I am working on. We collaborate.

Port Tack, GP's boat is a rocket. Way ahead of it's time. Worth looking into.
