      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.

Privateer holed and dismasted

55 posts in this topic

It was a cold and foggy night and only a fishing boat and Privateer were out on Cape Cod. One was fishing; the other, it was going from halifax to Newport.

Things that go bump in the night.......

 

All crew safe- nobody hurt.

That sounds more believable, couldn't understand how they/you couldn't get out of the way in time.

Was either boats making the required sound signals for reduced visibility as outlined in the COLREGs? How many crew aboard Privateer for the trip home?

(not trying to assign blame, just curious)

Glad to hear you and all the crew are alright Soley. There are lots of ways this could have been a different story in a bad way.

 

That is a hellva split in the hull. You must have had to nurse her back to Newport.

 

Lights? Radar? Sound Signals? What went wrong?

Edit: Understand if you can't comment due to any legal issue. (but like nauti, curious how a fishing vessel with radar ploughs into a sailboat like that).Main thing is that you are okay.

We did what we could, to sail in a prudent manor, unfortunately we dont believe any one was in the wheel house of the fishing boat. They guy on watch saw a guy of the bow of the fishing boat run into the wheel house just before the collision. He didnt see anyone else in the wheelhouse..

FFS Matty, the insurance company is still collecting information and you are giving first-hand accounts on the internet? We are talking a claim in the hundreds of thousands. Have some respect for Ron and keep your mouth shut until it is all said and done.

Bumch of years ago a brand new J24 was racing one of our PHRF weekend series. Boat got hit by a fishing tug(google great lakes fishing tugs) as the sailors were jumping port and starboard into the water. Gouge nearly to the cockpit footwell. Two on board the tug were probably cleaming or sorting catch. 7-9 witness boats for that one.

Yeah Matty.

Stll dont know if you were under power or sail.

Visbility?

Radar watch?

We wouldnt want anything like the truth coming out.

We wouldnt want anyone to lean from your experience

We would like to be dishonest assholes

Did the trawler have lines, dredges, nets out and were they displaying cones and/or green and white all-round lights?

If so, see Rule 18 part C.

If the fishing vessel was engaged in fishing with the proper navigation signals and lights displayed, they have right of way over more maneuverable sailing vessels, even if they are sailing. (No this is not an exact reproduction of Colregs, but you get the idea)

Sailing does not give you rights over all non-sailing vessels.

Seems to me that a working fishing boat has ROW over pleasure boat under sail? I always stayed away from the fackers, no matter how many course changes they made to run me down......

 

And most race boat BN's on deliveries only sail if the wind is ideal and they have enough hands. It's a job, not a holiday; and usually a power boat ride, and often single or short-handed. Used to leave at 3 AM for the tide to motor from Newport to Stamford in 12 hours.

Geezus H. Kjrist. Fishing Vessels that have nets, lines or dredges down and are displaying inverted cones and/or all-round green over white lights have the right of way over all other vessels except those who are restricted in maneuverability and vessels not under command.

AIS is a wonderful thing....I'm assuming of course the fishing boat had a transponder turned on and didn't do a radical course change at the last minute...

Why would you assume that?

AFAIK there is no requirement for <300 ton vessels to have AIS.

Well aware of BN delivery practices, been there and done it.

 

Both boats steaming, pass port to port.

 

Fishing got gear down or getting up, as you say, stay the fuck out of the way. Doesn't matter if you're under sail or not.

Please refer to COLREG's Navigation Rules. Section 3, Conduct in Restricted Visibility (Rule 19).

There is no stand on or give way vessel when operating in restricted visibility. Both vessels are obligated to determine if "...risk of collision exists. If so she SHALL take avoiding action in ample time..." It looks like a fairly square T-bone, avoiding action was not taken in ample time by either vessel.

 

Basically it sounds like both vessels screwed the pooch on this one. Degrees of fault will very, but that is up to the lawyers to figure out.

 

Sad day, I'm glad everyone is OK.

True. If you think a screen name is 'people' than you need to turn off your computer.

 

I think you know that you can out any sock puppet you want. "hobot" isn't "people" any more than moondance44 is people.

Good question, Alan !??!

 

How about more than 15,000 *25,000 miles delivering race boats, and other type boats since 1970? Often in reduced visibility, with fishing boats all around... Were you wearing nappies, or short pants, in 1970, Mr. Clean? :D:P

 

BTW, I am hoping that Madison Beach Club will come up with your 700 words and some pics of the Atlantic class Nationals; that you promised to put on the front page. I will keep you posted.

 

* edit - I forgot about Bermuda to Hawaill on the Frers 80 in '82 and FLL to Azores in '79 on the Golfcart 50 that nearly foundered in a hurricane...
