      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.

That looks like handy stuff. We have used a plastic grating kinda stuff in the past and it made a huge difference.

This stuff is great. We installed it under our cushions in the forward berth and have had *zero* problems with condensation since.

If you are considering importing some to Oz, they don't ship outside the Continental US.

May need to use a third party shipper.

I need a boat full as well, would be interested in how you get it here, or sharing an order.

Thats the way guys. There are specialist shippers to Oz over there for all the Ebayers. US delivery address, will hold to make a "shipping " package and send.

 

Most stuff is free shipping to the continental.

 

How do I know, an ageing BMW.

Looks like the price is about the same after some rough calulations there is only $6 between them & not much in the exchange rate at the moment- do you think the US stuff looks like better quality?

I found some in Aus so i'll check it out - otherwise I have a MyUS account :)/>

What do think of this Mr Farty - sorry i saw that in another thread & cried laughing

:lol:/>

 

No offence.

I have no idea on quality, I guess plastic is plastic.

 

We just want to stay cool in Queensland, so whatever it costs .

I suspect transport of stuff with that amount of volume from the US would not be cheap.

I would go for the Oz stuff as well.

 

Are you just using foam for the mattress, or is there something that breathes as well?

We are just upgrading from foam to "Springs fully insulated with extra deep ultra density premium plus foam". We use the boat most wekends & will retire on it probably. We ended up with the bottom of the foam being a bit soggy in QLD last year.

This is a hilarious example of "marine" products pricing versus more terrestrial applications. It's actually called Enkadrain and costs less than $1.50 a square foot - used for foundation drainage it's pretty much the state of the art.

 

I've got a 150'x5' (45x1.6m) roll in my garage. Not sure what shipping would cost to AUS - it's about .5m in diameter...

Look here: http://www.colbond-u...tion-walls.html

 

There's a sketchy Enkadrain brochure on the right side of the page. It's the same stuff.

 

The version I have is 1.6m wide - perfect for a queen-size berth. The newest version is made of recycled HDPE - mine was the pure stuff - suitable for a virgin berth. ;-)

Enkadrain 9120 is what I see on a US price sheet - 0.8" (2 cm thick). comes in 1x30m rolls. $1.21/ft2; roughly $300 per roll. Don't think 1/4" will allow enough air to circulate.

EnkadrainSL 2m x25m $404+gst per roll. - trying to find out how deep it is

 

 

This is the sort of talk that makes CA great.

 

Ozee, it's nice to have you visiting. I feel honored to have the cover girl with us humble cruisers here.

 

I love Star Trek too. Which is your favorite series? I have to go with Jean Luc. "Engage."

You've gotta see the "I love Patrick Stewart" tribute from the "American Dad" cast for his role at Avery Bullock, twisted deputy director of the CIA on the series:
