      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.

Hi,

I'm buying a Bull 7000 and have found pretty much everything there is to find about the Bull except polar diagrams. If anybody could help me with this would be really happy.

 

Cheers

I have tried for a while and never found them.

It is great boat though, needs weight upwind, but a riot reaching and downhill.

Have you tried the designer?

Yes, i tried with the designer, Greg Young, but he could not help me. He let it all away to Europe as they started the production of the extended Bull. The European class association should have them but the website is down so nu luck there. Got great help from this Aussie (thanks Geoff, for giving me all the good stuff. The tuning and trim-guides was great! Nice clips!) and i tried with some other Bull-owners as well but still no polar for the 7.5m Bull 7000.

There is at least one with an ORC cert, that will have VPP numbers on it. It's a start.

Michael,

what do you need the Polars for? Have a Bull since 1996, great boat, great fun to sail but have never ever looked at Polars. Just trying to squeeze out all the speed she got.

With waves and choppy water, we stayed with the no1 jib and a reefed main and with flat water we found ourselfs in good shape with a full main and jib nos.2

smooth sailing

Manfred

Are all battens in the jib full length?

There are no battens (on the pictures) in the jib....Is that bad?

Nevermind, then. I thought the lines ending with the black patches were battens.

smile.gif okay, think we got it wrong, the boat on the picture is Manfreds, not mine (that looks as battens to me)

Got something smile.gif

 

Well done,

However I am wondering if those take the rotating pole in consideration.

We used to go deeper with the pole rotated and easing the the spinnaker tack a lot.

I would concur with Manfred , sail the boat and get its groove before blindly stick to polar numbers.

Have fun (you will)

I will smile.gif and my guess is that they only use the main and jib in the polar.
