      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.

Looks to me like a Riviera 60 with some kind of wooden sailing boat in the foreground.

Nice... probably something European, maybe Italian... and EXPENSIVE... and should really be on www.boatporn.us (Yes, that site is perfectly safe, even at work!), not SA?

It's only very rarely you see a boat that's nothing like you've seen before, and makes you say 'holy shit!'

Can't wait for the debate on what density of CDX plywood and type of deck screws used in this build.

What do you think about this Open 32 Wood Carbon Yacht called Black Maggy?

Like it, a lot. You got any links about this boat?

When I saw the title "Woody Woodpecker" I was afraid to look. I figured Da-Woody was caught in some cougar porn.

Another W White elephant by Donald Tofius. Slow, expensive and will never sell a single one of them... I think somewhere there is Vapourware for a W-100...what a waste of time.

Van Ki Pass?

Apparently on its way back to the USA. Not sold

My guess is that it stiffens the construction.. that little pre-bend makes it stiffer and it therefore does not flex upwards when flying the chute

Beautiful boat. What is the purpose of the slight downward rake of the sprit?

I wouldn't know what to do in a cockpit like that - where are the bits of string to trip over?

 

 

ok, what's the deal with the 16 or so strings in the cockpit?

the lines at the front of the cockpit are halyards etc. lead through clutches which are operated by small trigger lines as they are hidden below deck.

the lines coming from the side are led through cleats and are probably trimming devices such as traveller, jib car, mainsheet and maybe vang.

Having seen the boat up close I have to say it was build with attention to detail. AFAIK the hull is cold molded and the deck is composite covered with veneer. The lockers below the seats are completely black from the inside.

I'd be in the market at about $35K. There's probably someone will to pay a bit more than I, however. But 600G? That's just crazy shit. You could buy 3 Beneteau's for that!

It's easy to grin


When your ship comes in


And you've got the stock market beat.


But the man worthwhile,


Is the man who can smile,


When his shorts are too tight in the seat.



Okay, Pookie. Do the honors.

Look ! Hardly a bow wave, almost nothing at the midship section, and no stern quarter wave/wake? I am impressed.

Of course, there are no extremities into the water to change the whole gamut of things.
