      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.

SR21 - Henderson vs C & C?

39 posts in this topic

I will be looking at a couple of boats this coming week. Does anyone have an opinion on the merits, or otherwise, of boats from the 2 builders ?

 

Thanks

I believe the Henderson boats will be lighter. Send a PM to Sol Rosenberg if you don't hear anything else, he is knowledgeable about the various SR designs. I've spent a bit of time on a SR33 and can say they are built well, designs were ahead of their time and they are fun boats but they are heavier than they look.

I owned an original Henderson SR Max 21 two decades ago. Loved it. Hated to sell her. But I had to.

SR 21--heavier than the Viper...probably a bit better upwind in slop. Rating ought to make up the difference in speed. SR 21 is not as wet as the Viper & should be better in the light stuff---it is a Henderson design, afterall. BTW, Glenn oversaw the build. C& C built a nice 25-probably the 21 is good too. If the price is good, get it...if not, get a viper 630.

 

Right on the SR 25. One (Hull # 2) in So Cal (no windows) and Hull #1 w/windows as of 6 mo. ago in Miami or nearby there. Both built by C&C. Wonderful boat! Rumors persist of hull #3 (no deck-it melted/burned in the fire) being somewhere on a lake in east Idaho or somewhere...If anyone knows...PM me details/contact info, etc. Thanks!

I'm not planning on advertizing 'til spring, but my SRMax (SR 21) is available. This was Glenn Henderson's personal boat (purple hull), later turbo'd by Kokopelli with a carbon mast and big asym kite on a canting bowsprit. Fun boat, just don't find time to sail it enough, so it should go to someone who will.

The blue boat may be in Tampa now as 'Ruckus'.

 

From my understanding at the time the SR molds were outside the buildings and did not burn. Someone even was attempting to build 21's a few years ago.

I have a paper copy of the owners manual, and a few tuning notes that were not all that useful. PM me and we'll figure out how to get you a copy.

C&C SR25. Only two made, #1 is Ruckus in Florida, and #2 is Misque in Marina Del Ray California, I was out last week, couldn't see it from the road. I don't believe any more survived the fire.

 

SR 27, apparently 9 were built. There is one for sale in Florida right now in the SA classifies.

 

SR 33... no idea how many were made, I have only found a half dozen or so that race PHRF and have a rating, there is a video of one in the Chicago Mac.

 

SR Max> versus C&C SR21. The C&C is about 20 lbs lighter than the SR Sailboats version (1,360 vs 1,380lbs) apparently build quality was a little rough, particularly inside fininshes of the C&Cs. I would suggest either boat is fine, given the price and age of the fleet. I also have the owner's manual, class rules and a blueprint of the mast - same Kenyon section as a Shark.

 

I really love my SR, I have seen a few of them that have been "altered" with a bowsprit and Melges 20 sized Asym. They are pretty fun stock, I have hit 10 knots is 18 knots of wind with just a jib/main. A little wet and difficult to work on unless in the water, but they are real gems!

P, how does your turbo'ed SR do with the breeze and asym up? ie, are you able to keep the bow from Submarining?

What does a carbon spar, articulating bowsprit SR 21 rate?

 

I saw Rob Butler's SR 21 with a fixed sprit in Collingwood (Georgian Bay). I believe he was gifted a 165 PHRF rating.

The local PHRF had me level with the U20s, I never raced it enough to get that adjusted.

Those kind of conditions don't happen too often on the river where I sail (and I admit I really didn't sail the boat enough... so its forsale).

 

 

There's a long-quiet Yahoo group for the SR 21 / SR Max. With people turbo'ing them now, it might be time to get that group woken up. http://groups.yahoo.com/group/srmax21class/

Bellum - The Beaver's Rating for 2012 was 159 (not 165 - which is a stock SR 21's 2013 rating). PHRF-LO has caught up to all of the changes and it rates 147 this year, although it still is missing the -6 for the fat head main.

Bellum - Phil boat rates 135, 186 - It gets dings for the Carbon Mast (-6), Main (-9), oversized spin (-24), and +9 for a jib off at std 165.

I'd buy it from Phil - my wife would kill me though.

If it is seriously for sale (i.e. reasonably priced) I may be interested. I regret selling #86 awhile ago. Need to move a Hobie 33 first though, I don't want to contract polynavicular morbus. http://forums.sailinganarchy.com/index.php?showtopic=142928&hl=%26quot%3Bowning+multiple+boats%26quot%3B#entry3978130

a thousand bucks off if I don't have to store the boat this winter... $7950 will take it.

 

Great boat, the fall breeze is here, someone ought to buy it and go sailing!

 

If I still have it next spring I might just change my mind and keep it!
