      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.

      Moderation Team Change   06/16/2017

      After fifteen years of volunteer moderation at SA, I will no longer be part of the moderation team. The decision to step aside is mine, and has been some time in the works but we did not wish to announce it in advance for a number of reasons. It's been fun, but I need my time back for other purposes now. The Underdawg admin account will not be monitored until further notice, as I will be relinquishing control of it along with my administrative privileges. Zapata will continue on as a moderator, and any concerns or issues can be directed to that account or to the Editor until further notice. Anyone interested in helping moderate the forums should reach out to Scot by sending a PM to the Editor account. Please note that I am not leaving the community, I am merely stepping aside from Admin responsibilities and privileges on the site.

If anyone needs crew on Sunday the 19th for the UK Fall Series please let me know. I will be in town through next week before going back to Arizona to sell my house. Would love to get a ride on Lake Michigan.

 

Fwiw: I did finally get my boat SevenSundays shipped from Phoenix to Torresen Marine. I will be going over there tomorrow to check out her new digs for the first time. Then on Saturday Torresen is having customer appreciation day. Perhaps I will meet some of you there?

 

Last I heard Tobasco was looking for crew...we are not sailing or we would need crew

I have to fly back to Phoenix on Sunday to finish selling the house, but if anyone needs crew between now and then let me know. (even just a daysail would be cool) Beers on me!

 

It's supposed to be warm in Muskegon tomorrow so the Wifey and I are going for a row in the dinghy I built.

Good News for the Great Lakes

Hi,
I thought you might appreciate this:
. I hope you'll forward it to your crew, etc. Please pass it on or post it to your Facebook page (if you have one).

UM-based Michigan Sea Grant awarded $1.5 M to help restore Great Lakes

201098_7962_1.jpg

ANN ARBOR, Mich.—University of Michigan-based Michigan Sea Grant has been awarded more than $1.5 million from the federal government to lead two Great Lakes restoration projects that will restore native fish habitat and help clean up marinas across the region.

 

Michigan Sea Grant, a collaboration between U-M and Michigan State University, will also assist on five federally funded projects focused on issues including endangered fish, beach contamination, sound boating practices and marina operations, and water pollution.

 

The Environmental Protection Agency grants are part of the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative, a $475 million federal commitment to improve environmental quality in the Great Lakes region. Michigan Sea Grant's work, along with hundreds of other projects in Michigan and the region, will help meet key restoration priorities identified by EPA.

 

"For years, we've used the Great Lakes as dumping grounds—letting pollution from farm fields, sewers and factories flow into the lakes, overharvesting fish, and building on valuable wetlands," said Jim Diana, a U-M professor of fisheries and director of Michigan Sea Grant, which is based at the U-M School of Natural Resources and Environment.

 

"The country has benefited from industrial production in this region, but our environment has suffered," Diana said. "This initiative is a major turning point for the Great Lakes. We now have some significant funding which enables us to tackle these issues in a comprehensive, coordinated way."

 

The two Michigan Sea Grant-led projects are:

 

• "Restoring Native Fish Habitat in the St. Clair River" ($1.04 million over two years). New underwater reefs will be constructed to encourage reproduction of native fish such as lake whitefish, walleye and lake sturgeon. Studies before and after construction will allow biologists to evaluate the impact of the work and improve future habitat restoration efforts.

 

"We've been planning for this project for over four years," said Jennifer Read, Michigan Sea Grant assistant director and the project's principal investigator.

 

"Our team is building on experience with similar projects in the Detroit River," she said. "This project is exciting because it is the first of its kind in the St. Clair River system and could potentially have a huge impact on important sport, heritage and endangered species such as walleye, lake whitefish and lake sturgeon."

 

• "Green Marina Education and Outreach" ($478,262 over three years). The project will support and improve existing Clean Marina programs in Michigan, Ohio and Wisconsin, focusing on reducing pollution from boating and marina activities. Funding will be used to help increase participation and educational efforts that lead to Clean Marina certification.

 

To become certified, Clean Marinas must complete a training course, perform a self-evaluation and address both mandatory and recommended best practices. About 100 marinas in the Great Lakes region have made the commitment to voluntarily implement best practices.

 

The new funding will assist in the development of uniform Clean Marina certification standards that can be applied to marinas throughout the region. The project will also provide support to enable marinas to complete certification. In addition, some of the funding will be used to improve existing training tools, like the Web-based Clean Marina Classroom.

 

Diana is the project's principal investigator. Elizabeth LaPorte, Michigan Sea Grant's director of communications and education services, is co-principal investigator. Extension Program Leader Chuck Pistis will act as manager of quality assurance on the project.

 

"Since the beginning of the Michigan Clean Marina Program in 2005, we've helped more than 35 marinas become certified and have learned a lot about the needs of marina operators," LaPorte said. "Now we have the opportunity to share these lessons with our partner states, magnifying our impact in the Great Lakes region."

 

In addition to the marina and reef-building projects, Michigan Sea Grant is collaborating on five Great Lakes Restoration Initiative projects led by other institutions. A portion of these grants will support the work of Michigan Sea Grant extension educators:

 

• "Outreach to reduce the spread of aquatic invasive species," Dan O'Keefe, Michigan Sea Grant project extension coordinator.

 

• "Expanding vessel-based education programs," Steve Stewart, Michigan Sea Grant project extension coordinator.

 

• "Controlling Phragmites along Lake St. Clair," Mary Bohling, Michigan Sea Grant project extension coordinator.

 

• "Beach information communication system," Sonia Joseph Joshi, Michigan Sea Grant project extension coordinator.

 

• "Laser technology for tracking beach contaminants," Sonia Joseph Joshi, Michigan Sea Grant project extension coordinator.

 

Michigan Sea Grant helps foster economic growth and protect Michigan's coastal Great Lakes resources through education, research and outreach. A collaborative effort of the University of Michigan and Michigan State University, Michigan Sea Grant is part of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration-National Sea Grant network of more than 30 university-based programs.

 

U-M Sustainability fosters a more sustainable world through collaborations across campus and beyond aimed at educating students, generating new knowledge, and minimizing our environmental footprint. Learn more at

Out of curiosity, I did a sort of "dry run" of what is likely to reult according to the process by which the dock committee is going to assign slips - and the worst that can happen is that some people will be in the next slip size up from where their boat could fit, which is not much of a jump (maybe 2-4 ft) - and not wildly out of line given the club's goal of making the marina much more accommodating of the larger boats most folks are buying (the long term trend we have been seeing). Truth is, we've been having a hard time filling the plethora of small (<27ft) slips in the old layout - and we've been turning away people with boats larger than 27ft. And if you look at other marinas, most don't offer the range of sizes this new plan still offers. In the case of other marinas, if ya want in ya gotta pay for a pretty big slip regardless of how big your boat is. Also, keep in mind that the new configuration has 10+ more slips than the old layout. Many of those "big" slips are gonna be filled by boats that have never been able to dock at MYC until now - and who have wanted for a long time to be able to slip there. The whole process and likely outcome seem very well thought out to me - and very much a plan that will serve us well in the long term... including how it is going to much better serve the dry-sail in/out process (no more M24 traffic jams! Yay!). About the only down side I see is the loss of a little of the lawn, which is a small price to pay for what the new docks are gonna provide us.

Let me know when you find out what slip is yours. I'll saw the dock down to the appropriate length.

What part of the lawn are we losing? I would think we could rip out the center walkway and have even more lawn.

The dry sail area where the M24s currently sit is going to expand further into the lawn to create the additional parking required for a greater number of slips. Other people can speak better than me about the exact measurements.

The current plan is to remove the center walkway.

 

That along with the increased drysail area will forever change the Bocce strategy of this once hallowed ground. Now if we could only get the lawn mowed early on Sunday afternoons........

2. Douchebag:

 

An individual who has an over-inflated sense of self worth, compounded by a low level of intellegence, behaving ridiculously in front of colleagues with no sense of how moronic he appears.

EX: Your boss is a real douchebag!

3. Douchebag:

 

A person with a shitty personality that needs to "take themself the fuck down" or "go home and get their fucking shine box." A douchebag usually assumes the form of a hair-gelling pretty-boy but can also be described as an overzealous, pompous, or vexatious asshole that most people wish were killed with a Mortal Kombat fatality.

EX: Damn, I thought "Beverly Hills 90210" won the permanent award for most douchebags casted in one weekly television show, but then someone had to go make that show, "Friends."

If we are talking about Fetzer, then #2 seems appropriate. If Fetzer is trying to get you to vote on me, then I suggest you vote #2 as well....

 

Have fun today.
