      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.

OK guys, let's take inventory here:

 

- Cheap to build

- Wheel steering

- Inboard engine

- Roller mainsail

- Very simple to sail

- Roomy for it's size

- Trailerable

 

Yeah, it probably sails like a pig, so a furum dedicated to racing will trash it. But this is exactly the type of boat that would get people onto the water and introduced to sailing, so for that reason I LIKE it (as long as none of my friends see me sailing one).

It seems sensible all around and does not look like a plastic RV. Like J24 said, the cooler is of sufficient depth, so that means they have thought of all the important things.

Seems a pretty useful daysailer/weekender to me. 80% motoring/20% sailing on a nice comfy reach. A lot of summer fun to be had, I'd guess.

 

The deep cockpit with the built-in step down is curious. Seems you can only get laid on starboard tack. Which makes sense from a rules perspective.

As Mr Perry stated "I like it". So do I. It's just the thing for someone who likes to potter about on boats. Go fishing, Go for a sail, do a bit of both, and, it doesn't look half bad either. I'd go for it, probably along with the rest of the majority who have no interest in bendy foils and kevlar underpants..

A sweet little boat!

 

A true multi purpose boat:

 

1) Weekend Cruiser: Cabin looks good size for several nights aboard. Sail downwind or on a reach when you have the time, when you don't then motor. Always motor to weather as gentlemen don't sail to weather anyways.

 

2) Daysailor: Big cockpit, only one sail to tend too, no pesky boom to look out for and no sails to clean up at the end of the day.

 

3) Inshore fishing boat: Motor to your fishing grounds. Troll around all day burning zero fuel. Easy to vary your speed with the roller sail. Catch your fish and motor home. Perfect!

 

Just don't take her anywhere near a race course! :lol:

Dunno. Might make an interesting boat for the RC. Throw a few deck chairs back there, a cooler full of your favorite adult beverage, a cabin to get out of the weather, etc. Sure looks a lot more civilized then some of the RC boats I've been on.

NJY Loup de Mer 23, a fishing concept boat for the japan market, by JM Finot.

same kind of boats are build by Espace VAG in france, the I-Kone range. a little bit sexier than the Finot, and a very good boat for grand'pa fishing with kids/buddies/beer/both. www.espace-vag.comikone-2.jpg

This is a great boat. There are so many boats in this size range that are trying to be bigger boats and therefore compromise on just about everything, making them uncomfortable and impractical. This thing you could enjoy sailing, fishing, putting around, and even gunk holing. The cockpit is large enough to have a tent setup for more comfortable cruising.

I like the boat myself. It looks like a fun way to get out on the water for a weekend. No stress sailing with guilt-free and economical motoring, what more could you ask for in a simple little boat?

I think I saw a similar boat in Dana Point harbor. It looked like a fishing boat (a small lobster boat style runabout, maybe 25' or so), with a double-stayed wishbone rig on it. Crazy looking thing, and not old.
