      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.

Po Boy 20?

28 posts in this topic

The Holder 20. I fink its freaky and I like it a lot. Can't find one though. What else is out there that is trailerable, fast, has a cabin, looks cool, and can be had for under $4K? Nobody better say, "Ozark whitetrash chick" I'm serious.

I'm not sure about Mitch guys... Does he really want to see my stuff?

 

In the meantime, maybe someone can recommend a boat similar to a Holder 20, cheap and fast, like the girls Mitch likes.

Nothing else in that price range; maybe the MX-20 but there weren't many of those made. All the ~20ft-ish boats are much much slower.

 

A possibility if you want to do some experimenting: get a Highlander. They are quick (faster than the Holder 20) and very strongly built. I happen to like their looks too but they are certainly not modern or sleek.

Was the Holder used for the U20 mold? With some mods. Might be wrong.

Not quite as fast, but look at the Santana 20, also sometimes called the Tuna 20. Good class support, some one design fleets across the country. Fun little boat with as much room as the Holder 20, the biggest problem is the full keel but once you get used to it it isn't a big deal.

 

contact me at santana616tdg@gmail.com if you want some more info. They can be had for as little as 1500 or as much as 6K depending on what your goals are with it.

Hot foot was the idea for the U20. Jim added more shape to the bow knuckle - changed the back end a little and reworked the interior and cabin top. The keel and rudder were all redesigned also.

I like the the Holder 20 great lake boat. However you need to keep the cabin closed up when conditions get a little windy given spinnaker up wipeouts are well known for sinking them. Positive flotation keeps em off the bottom but I've seen a few that had to be recovered off the bottom. Super fun boat in light air moves really well.

 

Santana 20's are tough boats and also have really good fleets in many cases.

Gonna check out the Santana 20. A little slower than what I'd like probably, but a pretty popular boat in that size and price range.

You Want Freaky??

 

There's a Lindenberg 22 somewhere in Oklahoma thats up for sale. (According to L22 Yahoo Groups)

1"-1 1/2" feet longer than anything mentioned above, but you'll get around the bouys a whole lot faster. (196-198 PHRF)

It's easily trailerable (you can actually beach it), has a very large cabin for a 22', looks way cool (even freaky, depending on your taste in trailerable 30+ year old sail boats), fast and can definately be had for less than $4K.

 

I inquired about this boat....it's in OK, I'm in FL.

I got back to your email, it is cool that you are looking at the Santana 20. We have a great class association with lots of great people involved with the boat.

 

Fun little boats taht don't break the bank to campaign.

My hometown is the S20's hometown, and I'll vouch for it. At current prices for boats, sails, etc., they're cheaper to race than a lot of dinghies.

 

Downside is the keel doesn't retract like the H20's, which makes for a tall trailer, a bigger vehicle to pull it, and a deep ramp or a crane to launch it. SoCal YCs have cranes so it wasn't an issue there.

AK,

Tunas are fun, been racing them OD for the last 14 yrs, but look at your class breaks. 222 is easy to sail to in flat stuff, but if everyone arround rates 170 you are gonna get waterlined to death. Fun boat, great people, but if I was in bigger h20 than in CO I would defenetly go for something a bit bigger. Obviously if there is a OD fleet go for it, but PHRF not so much.

 

Edit;

Can't beat them for bang for the buck though.

 

Come join the fun.........

Looks like the Santana 20 and the Holder 20 are top of the list. Waiting to hear back from a couple of guys about S20's. Anyone got an original condition H20 taking up space in your garage?

The Impulse has about the same amount of cabin as the Tuna and the Holder. That is, hardly any at all. My Impulse has the inboard shrouds which makes the cabin almost impossible, but it's still room for a cooler and some jackets at least. Fun boat too.

Second the notion that the Impulse 21 is ONLY a daysailer. I've had one for 5 years, and enjoy it greatly for evening racing and instruction - it sails and responds very well to adjustment - but I've only crawled below decks perhaps a half-dozen times - it's NOT a dual purpose design at all.

 

Have a Holder 20 in a nearby marina, sure wish he'd sail it more often, I'd love to see how the two compare - I'd bet I'm faster uphill, slower down.
