      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.

Barn Find

130 posts in this topic

Found on CL just north of Denver. A guy had the task of cleaning out a deceased friends barn and he ran across a boat.

I went and looked at it, been sitting since 1989. Had some issues but nothing too daunting. His ad said any offer, so I did, and got it for a song. Of course all the running rigging needs replaced but the standing looks very good, the sails are decent just need cleaning and all the cushions are there and in great shape. Centerboard, hinge, rudder and tiller look great.

 

There was one issue discovered cleaning it out. There had obvioously been water in the boat. Turns out the drain hose from the cockpit scupper to the drain was split open. getting to it will be a major bitch

 

This will keep me busy till find our next cruiser.

Chris Craft made some awesome sailboats, S&S IIRC and built pretty well (I remember a goofy smaller boat, Motorsailer, a nice 37' and 42' Commanche?). As a footnote, the Chris Craft Factory in Holland, MI became the birthplace of S2 Sailboats and produced very nice boats.

I showed my 14 year old son a photo of it and he thought it was 'way sick' and said what did you sell it for? I could hardly tell him i got a rib dinner and a bag of pot! Of course that was 1981, when I was young and irresponsible....

Actually 1000 plus miles at the age of 17-18 in a valiant 40. With an additional delivery outside from lauderdale to Tampa but who's counting..

Indeed it wasn't. Oddly enough there were heaps of wild wallabies on the windward side of the island in those days. They escaped from someone's property and breed like crazy. Didn't bone any though. Not when there were so many American girls 'who just luvved mai accent' that's how I met your mother.

No I am not man tough enough to get a tat or join Greenpeace. I could probably stand the pain of getting inked but when you join Greenpeace they drill that hole in the side of your head and pull half your brain out.

Tofu or Greenpeace? There is a protest planed for our marina this morning because the owner wants to cut down two trees that drop shit on the boats in the yard. Should be quite a hoot. Normal bullshit about 'rich boat owners' not careing for the environment. As this particular marina is the 4 knot shitbox capital of south east Queensland most of the protestors cheese cloth shirts and beads are worth more than any boat in the yard.

Both.

 

Same problem here with dredging. Got to complete a farking impact assessment report then undertaken exploratory sediment coring (~6-9 months + $$$) just to lodge an application with GBRMPA to dredge the 500m channel to the marina. Looks like this will take 18-24 months and cost 5x what it should, just because sediment will be re-suspended during dredging activities.
