      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.

Kent:

That must be the old SOPAC 42. They built a few of them and one logged a lot of ocean miles and ended up here in the PNW. My favorite was the one called PERRYAIRE.

Well, I was planning on getting those molds. Hell, I had a brand new state-of-the-art facility all ready to go up in Duluth, a bunch of talented shipwrights I was ready to put on the payroll, you name it. It would have been awesome. AWESOME I tell ya!

 

But some chuckleheads in Kansas CIty and Arizona fucked it all up for me.

 

And I was going to give away the first hull to some lucky winner in CA.

You better tell Reis. He had dispatched a detail on his private container ship to collect it and deliver stateside.

A very well protected container ship, given the security detail, I'm sure.

You know the thing that always got me about the whole 'security detail' thing? If you have a bodyguard or security detail, they should be pretty invisible, until you need them. I have done this kind of work in the past and, if you are that important that someone may try to harm you, one of the first things I told you was that you never tell someone who I really was. I'm your assistant, your driver, your friend, a buyer, a seller; tell them I'm anyone but who I really am.

 

I actually walked off a job because some son of some corporate dude started telling his buddies who I was. I called his dad and quit, right there.

 

Why? I'm there to protect you, not be tested by your football buddies.

 

So no. The first rule of having a bodyguard or a 'security detail' is you don't talk about the bodyguard or 'security detail'.

 

Unless, of course, you need a security detail because you are crazy. Then, no one will believe you anyway and I can just smile knowingly and tell people I'm there to protect *them* from *you*.

Reis needs a security detail because otherwise he puts his underwear on after his pants, and he never remembers to bring enough Depends.

 

On top of being batshit crazy, of course.

I always made it clear. I don't dress you. That is what your orderly is for. :)

I knew a RCMP guy who was on security detail for Prince Philip on one of HRH's visits to the Colonies. He said Primps Phip was such a massive asshole there was no way he was jumping in front of a bullet.

Is it really worth anything?

Hole:

I don't think it is. It doesn't fit the model of the current cruiser/racer. It's not broad enough aft. It may be a betterall round boat than some of the current ones but it doesn;t have the volume aft to compete with accomodations.

To me it's just an old design.

 

But I have happy memories of that project with two fun trips to NZ, some good lamb, helping sheer the sheep ( I just chased them) and cooking for old friends.

Who is likely to by this? Someone VERY handy that wants a head-start on building his own 40+ footer from the ground up, or an outfit looking to get into some limited series production?

 

Pedigree aside, what is something that that actually worth?

 

Bigger question, how much will they owe Bob in royalties??

If you have the mold and some free time, you are 2/3s of the way there! :P

That was a joke inspired by some "men's health" type magazine cover about sex.

It read something like "SEX - If you have a penis and some free time, you are 2/3s of the way there".
