      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.

Somebody save this boat

Can someone tell me more about the block/twing setup attached to the boom for the spinsheet.......looks interesting. I've never seen that setup before.

 

ILLUSION has a line that pulls the spinnaker sheet out toward the end of the main boom to stretch out the foot. This is what you're seeing. It has the effect of moving the sheet point for the chute "aft", at least as far as the chute feels it, much further than you can accomplish on a 40' boat. This opens up the leech of the chute, just as it would if you move the jib car aft for a genoa. That allows the air to flow across the chute and exit without blowing into the back of the main sail. It also stabilizes the chute in heavy winds, which is what you're seeing in the picture.

 

Sally's shop is closed now but the articles are still there. Here's the "Out-Grabber."

 

The Cal 40 GREEN BUFFALO is racing in the Singlehanded Transpac this year. In fact the start is this Saturday. Look for Jim Q to at least win his division.

A number of Cal-40s have converted the Nav station on the STB side to a top loader Frig/Freezer with chart table on top. It works really well. You don't get a "sit down" chart table, but so what.

I saw Kismet last weekend. Pretty far gone. IMHO she will need a complete rebuild, the mast and boom have some pretty severe corrosion, the deck has dozens and dozens of holes that have been filled with polyester resin, as has the area around the top rudder bearing in cockpit floor etc etc. Completely uninsurable without complete rewiring. BIG job ahead!

Kimb, I'd really like to buy this boat, I just don't have the cash or the place to put it at the moment. If you buy the boat on my behalf and keep at a place secure to you I Promise I will pay back the purchase price and as a guarantee to you if I never come up with the funds to buy the boat, You can keep the boat.

Sound fair?

i don't know if someone posted this..., but Lyman Morse has a brokerage Cal 40 for $150k..., that apparently still needs some work.

 

The exterior looks pretty nice.

 

Lyman Morse Brokerage

 

I have no idea if that is a reasonable price for a restored Cal 40, but if it is, it certainly seems that the craigslist boat is worth the effort and expense...

I own the cal 40 Belle Aurore. Have owned a few boats, but none so satisfying as she. The lines will elicit nothing but smiles, countless people will regale you with stories of their youth spent sailing on or against a cal 40, and anytime you so decide, you can gear up, take the most successful ocean racer of all time and go kick ass. She'll be dead simple to maintain, and will save your ass anytime you put yourself in a bad situation. And coolest of all, you can call up the only double Rolex winner couple on the planet, and not only will they take your call, the Honey's will freely share their hard won knowledge. With only a 5'9" draft, she is capable of going gunkholing in places no modern racer can even consider. My wife loves the tiller because it puts me nearer the middle of the boat, so I don't have to bellow to be heard by the crew on the rail, and at the dock it simply swings up out of the way, providing a lovely cockpit for lounging. I admit the interior is small, more in line with a modern 33 footer, but for a couple and occasional guest or two, pretty darn perfect. Take the leap!

Really nice Cal 40s sell in the $55K range, so I doubt that Lyman Morse will get even 1/2 of the $150K --- there are just too many nice boats that you can get for far less, and while Cal 40s are truly classics, it's not a 1965 Mustang that a collector is going to see and say "I have to have that". If the boat still needs some work (as the ad says), it's a complete non-starter....for anywhere near $150K, that boat has to be *perfect* right down to gleaming engine and a bilge you could eat from.

(parents owned "Maria", 1966 light blue Cal 40 from Milwaukee that they brought to PNW - still here and still sailing afaik)

Stan and Sally Honey's Cal 40 Illusion was a derelict sitting out in a field that someone had used for a bit of target practice. Boat was a real wreck before they brought her back from the dead. Back in the 90's Stan and Sally invited me on board and I was blown away by how well executed the restoration was. Illusion stands out in my memory as one of the nicest boats I've been on.

Kimb & SpongeDeckSquareFoil,

 

I think that the gudgeons may be for long oars. In the late '60s I crewed on a Rozinante that had oars to get her from her mooring to the dock. They looked exactly like that.

Too close to the shrouds? Also looks like there might be oarlocks just forward of the winches.

 

Well.... I was looking at the ones forward of the winches. I can't see what you all were looking at.... I'll just pour another glass of wineeee nowwww.

How about "bases for Luxo lamps"? Original Luxo lamps fit 1/2" oarlock sockets perfectly.

Heck, I thought those were the mounts for the steering oar !

 

It is clearly on the steerboard side, and they had to unship it since they didn't dock on the port side.

I thought it meant a bunch of tillers bolted end-to-end instead of metal wires. Sounds attractive. Most tillers are better looking than wires.
