      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.

They say the best two days boatdom is......

...the day you buy her, and the day you sell her. But there's a very rare third day as well, and not quite as common. And that's when you buy back said 'sold' boat a second time......

Actually there's one small, eensy-bitsy issue with the boat-----I need to de-squat a loser squatter who breached his contract and has been living aboard her for a few months now. So though the bike is not mine, the handle bars may come in quite handy come next Thursday evening, when I informed him that the party's over and it's time for him to gtfo.

 

 

Should be a rather entertaining week..... :lol:

I think the right financial move would be to trade boat for bike at this point.

 

Blow me.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Metaphorically speaking, that is...... :P

If it's so easy, why didn't the last owner do it?

 

1). He pulled out the Atomic Bomb and went to all electric propulsion after he bought her from us.

 

2). Sailed the hell out of her locally until the movie/documentary biz piped up. He's out of the country 3-6 months a year now. After getting married to a chick that hates boats---and having a couple of kids.

 

3). So he leased her out for a couple of years to help with the bills. Worked out great....'til they moved off.

 

4). Boat became an anchor for him, and he couldn't enjoy her. Then the batteries and electric motor got flooded out. Zzzzzzt-zzaaappp.

 

5). So he found this lying loser con man to pay some back slip fees and he could have the boat. Has a signed contract with the prick----but he never made a single payment to the marina, or the owner.

 

6). So he called me yesterday, told me he just wanted out, asked my advice...... and I ended up buying her.

 

7). Thursday oughta be a lot of fun...... :D

 

 

 

5).

Showed the pics to swmbo... so far so good, what does the Nurse think? My 6horse 4stroke longshaft should handle propulsion duties as long as it isn't rough out this weekend, that mount looks kinda small for more motor than that.

Who's on the hook for the back marina fees? Does that financial liability transfer with the boat?

We pulled into a marina in the panhandle and didn't notice until tying up that the boat next to us had a nice, new extra piling driven right in front of it. It was not leaving until the slip fees were paid.

you could get a flatbed trailer, bolt some boat stands on it and pull this baby around the trailer park with that Scout. I'm assuming you own a pair of overalls.

As for the original title and post.....there was always something I missed about every boat I sold....with the exception of one.

 

That was a CT 41...everyone I've ever met who's ever had one, knows exactly why.

I've never had one....but I share your pain. Weirdest interiors I've ever seen, and has all the uphill sailing capacity of a f'ng phone booth....

The "exactly why" isn't because they're slow, and they are indeed slugs....but the build quality....we lived aboard and bought it cause it had more room then the Columbia 38 we had previously.... the price was low in an estate sale...sold it less then a year later, pocketing 10k more then we paid for it.

 

Though we did take it on one cruise, for my everyday sailing we also had a Tbird and an OK Dinghy at the time....still have the OK Dinghy.
