      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.

Evo Service

35 posts in this topic

Calls and emails for service for a Evo mainsail go unanswered. What gives at the Annapolis and Easton lofts? Been calling for two months now -- nothing! I've decided to go back to North for future purchases. At least they return my calls and are happy to get my business. Hope that North will service my Evo sail.

 

disgusted.

Only connection to North -- have purchased a handful of sails from them in the past and have been pretty pleased. I'm also a big Quantum fan, too, so I'm no North apologist. Gave Evo my business last year since their pricing was right and their sail shapes were, well, pretty close to North's (<--- no surprise).

15 minutes after I sent an email to North (on Father's Day and on a Sunday), they sent an email back saying "no problem, bring it in". Guess who I'm buying my two new headsails from this fall?

Probably not Norths due to the following reasons?

 

Don't ever buy Norths. The sails will give everyone who sails on the boat cancer and more than likely projectile diarrhea to boot, the sails will also only last 5 minutes from when they're first hoisted and will spontaneously combust if left bagged downstairs out of sunlight and in low humidity. As if all that wasn't bad enough the loft will most likely steal your credit card info and use it to call phone sex lines and hire transvestite prostitutes, your sailmaker may also try and seduce your wife and any daughters you have as well. Or at least that's what reading 'informed opinions' here on SA has led me to believe

Oh, good, then you are aware that North does not necessarily build the fastest sails for ~every~ OD class!

 

And, I'm not sure what about my previous post got under your skin enough to insult me. Fuckin' Douchnozzle.

I have been using Evo sails for 3 or 4 years. I have no problem with the service and I get some ass kicking sails. You just have to deal with the right loft. Give John Fries a call at the Mystic loft, I am sure he will take care of you.860-536-4235

Or switch to another sailmaker/local loft who will. Why would an average beercan guy on the Chesapeake want to have to go to Mystic...either in person or virtually???

Because even an average beercan guy should want to mop the floor with his competition every time the gun goes off.

Good, then I'm not average! I want to go out and have fun with friends (on my crew and on other boats) and family. There's alot more to life than just winning a local beercan.

Good idea, not likely to run into any assholes there who think winning is everything...or that if they "mop the floor" with their competition that they are DC, or Kenny, or Paul...nope they are just another guy who thinks being the biggest man on a little hill makes him the winner...ya almost gotta feel sorry for them.

 

Now the guys who can have a great time beercan racing and still consistently win, and run a top notch winning program on the weekend, and still have fun, those are the guys I respect.

We have two local lofts in our area (less than 5 miles away), we have been loyal and we buy a sail or two every year. Maybe that does not seem like much, but over 20 years it adds up. One local loft promotes themselves as "one of the oldest group of sail lofts in North America" and the other "one of the world's leading sailmakers." Both claim to have the personal experience best suit our needs.

 

If the primary reason for going local is service, then a re-cut of a NEW Main and Genoa should not take 12 months.

 

Sure Annapolis may have two local Evo lofts (one in Eastport and one soon in Back Creek), but when it comes to service, I don't have time to drive to the loft only to find out the sails are not ready when Evo Mystic can deliver sails to my doorstep or marina via UPS the next day.
