      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.

What brand / design is this?

12 posts in this topic

Hi,

I thought I was good at spotting designs / brands, but this one really gives me a hard time.

Do you know it or know what it is?

Looks like something scandinavian to me, following some Reimers ideas, but I have no idea what model, design, yard it is.

Have you got any idea? Any suggestion welcome!

Jan

A Newport?....

Not a Newport. Pretty boat.

My guess would be maybe a Scandinavian build of an S&S design from the mid 70's.

 

I hope that guy knows where he is going!

That next tack will be a short one.

I found her! Googled the photographer, and there, in the backyard of his website, she was: It's pretty recent and a >>drums<< Ron Holland M-46

M-Yachts seems to be a very small swedish yard, I've never heard of them before.

Nice body. Hope it's ok to post her here.

You can find more pics at m-yachts.se

Bob, ironically I found her in article advertising a website from the Swedish CoastGuard or sth, where you can report unknown shoals / stones that aren't in your chart.

Wonder how they expect you to find out about them, though...

Well, mystery solved.

Nice looking boat. Very pretty profile.

 

S&S design from the 70's? What do you expect? I'm all screwed up with my cleansing diet. I can't think straight.

I think I'll go to the grocery store, " I'll be in the Bologna section" and see if any hot housewives notice how clean I am.

And that, sir, is why I love Scandinavian boats.:) Utterly gorgeous, and they do basic bathymetry with their keels. And survive.

 

Holland did quite a bit of design work for Nautor/Swan, where he probably was asked to hew to that brand's S&S style cues. He also did the attractive Omega 34, some Nicholsons (which are bombproof but I find them not so pretty), and some Ericsons -- maybe closer to production-boat build, but strong Nordic lines to them.

 

It must be hard to sell that low freeboard and wedge-shaped coach these days, when the few people buying new (at least in the USA) are mostly concerned with volume and motoring performance. Boats like this one appeal to my eye, but they are 'small for their size' by contemporary measures.

PERFECTLY RIGHT, the Omegas! This M-46 seems to be closely related to the Omega 46, some details have improved in my eye, but look it up and say what you think.

I once chartered an Omega 36 with my father in Denmark. We topped 14 knots once with one reef and furled Genoa.

Thats one 198x design, weighing 5tons, sporting 62 sqm. Compare that to -I don't know- the latest Dufour 36: 70 sqm, but at 6.4 tons.

The weight is even comparable to the latest FinnFlyer 36, which is built with a good portion of carbon in it...

I'd chose an Omega anytime over a new production boat.

btw: They still do one Holland design, the Omega 10m: http://www.10meter.se/

Bob, I'm curious what you might say, I think she looks a bit like Amatis little sister?

Actually the line is "I was in the balogna section" and it comes from a song by Johnny Guitar Watson called IT THAT A BITCH.
