      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.

the Ker 40 doesn't have sucha a hard chine, and the carkeek's one is less prominent...

 

maybe a new TP52 ?

 

the keel seems to be very forward, and as we don't see bearings on the hull, the rudders might be on the transom....

Too big for a 40. I'd say the rudder tube is under the rear cradle. I'd vote custom Ker 51, Knierim Yachts for Germany

Ker 46 headed for Cape Town

 

Would have to second this one, it is the same colour as Cape Fling ( Corby 49 based in Cape Town) owned by Lord Irvine Laidlaw and all of us Capetonians know that he is expecting his new Ker 46 soon.

Maybe a new Cone!

 

 

At first glance, I definitely got excited about the idea of a new Cone because of the color! but didn't they just get a MC38?

 

Definitely not a new TP52, too small and Azzura is the last one to be built.

 

By the look of that 3:45 ass ( if you don't get the reference, search for SNL Beauty and the Beast Ass Castle skit with Gerard Butler) it's definitely a Ker design.

 

Now, the final question of length...through the empirical measurement method of eyeballing, Ker 46

Mr Tuffy,

 

the first Carkeek40 from McC-China has been racing in the Caribbean already this year.

 

 

With regards to the Ker46, seems unplausable as the construction of the hull mould has only started recently AFAIK. The Ker 50 build by Knierim is going from yard, straight onto the keel and then in the water so not sure why that would have such a nice angled storage solution, especially as it is late.

 

With all this said, not sure what it is

Looks like my boat! Oh wait, my Open 5.70 is only 19 feet long, so unless that is a team of elves working on it, I guess it must be a 40 foot version. Same red hull, same black bottom paint, same capital 'A' shape...

It is a government conspiracy. I saw pictures of a top secret DARPA hypersonic aircraft on the web. The Mach 20 plane crashed and these are the recovered remains being transported to warehouse 13. Look it is still glowing red hot from reentry.

If you mean Apollo or Maverick III then they are both in the hamble already. Actually Apollo has gone down to Plymouth already.

 

As for the photo, the keel attachment and the shipping technique is very Kerr/Mcconaghy.

 

Things its not:

Sidney GTS 43

Kerr 40

Kerr 46

Mac 38

 

bit of guesswork by ellimination but I think this is a Carkeek 40 dunno who ordered it or where it is going but I'll guess at the USA.

 

what do I win??

Take a look at the building behind the boat. Notice the door on the left and the panels that make up the building. There are 12 lines from bow to where the gunwale hits the top of the building. That is about the same distance from there to the stern. The beam is about 8 panels. If you use 30”- 32" for the door the boat has a beam of 19 ~ 21 feet and LOA of 60 ~ 65 feet. The big black door would be 23 - 24 feet wide (std) so this boat could have come thru it.

 

Now where did I put those steroids for my i550?

Don't forget that the boat is much closer to the camera than the door frame. Perspective then makes the boat look relatively bigger than objects in the background (have you ever seen one of those pictures where someone in the foreground is holding their hand up such that someone in the background appears to be a little person standing on the outstrecthed hand?)

 

Having said that however, I did a similar calculation based on some assumptions on the guy in the white suit (who also appears to be behind the cradle rig) and come up with a range of 52' to 58'.

Or maybe Signal 8, like the filename says...

for all those who still question it......it has been fun watching the guessing game but that is now over....enough people have correctly identified it...it is Catapult the Ker 40 ( hull #9 ) coming to Annapolis and then on to the rest of the east coast!

 

See you on the starting line in mid to late summer.
