      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.

      Moderation Team Change   06/16/2017

      After fifteen years of volunteer moderation at SA, I will no longer be part of the moderation team. The decision to step aside is mine, and has been some time in the works but we did not wish to announce it in advance for a number of reasons. It's been fun, but I need my time back for other purposes now. The Underdawg admin account will not be monitored until further notice, as I will be relinquishing control of it along with my administrative privileges. Zapata will continue on as a moderator, and any concerns or issues can be directed to that account or to the Editor until further notice. Anyone interested in helping moderate the forums should reach out to Scot by sending a PM to the Editor account. Please note that I am not leaving the community, I am merely stepping aside from Admin responsibilities and privileges on the site.

Seeking Captain, Bamahas - Panama, January/February, expenses paid

10 posts in this topic

Hi,

 

I bought a boat in November that I am still too inexperienced to sail. We have already paid a few people to help us outfit it and sail it with us from the US to the bahamas to get us started. It is a 54' ketch.

 

We (my brother and I) are seeking a Captain to sail the boat with us from the Bahamas (freeport) to Panama. The boat is currently in a marina in Freeport that is fairly shallow so we are planning on leaving January 30th at the highest high tide.

 

We both grew up racing dingys, but are inexperienced with large boats / cruising. We need someone to help us teach us how to sail a big boat, ensure we motor safely around marinas, teach us how to anchor, etc.

 

If you like fishing, we bought some really nice fishing equipment so expect a lot of good fish.

 

We will pay your airfare to Freeport, expenses along the way (all food, etc, including nice restaurants when in port), and airfare from Panama City back to your home city.

 

We are not planning on many stops (at least not any long ones) so the whole trip might take around two weeks depending on the weather. We will be stopping in FL briefly to pick up some marine supplies.

 

Reply or PM if interested. We'll need to skype at some point if all sounds good. Non-smokers only please.

This sounds just about perfect, except that you didn't show any tits. Always wanted to go off-shore in a newly bought boat, sight unseen, with two novices as crew. Panama, hell. Lets go TA. Or maybe to Panama the long way round.

 

Marine supplies? What marine supplies do we have to get to Florida without?

 

Edit: Wait. Expenses paid. Does that mean ONLY expenses paid? Like it's a privilege to teach you to sail? And to fix all the broken bits on your boat so we don't sink and die on the way? You better have some really smokin' hot women going along or this ain't gonna work out.

I would have offered you a cuban hooker so you could see some tits since obviously most women are too smart to have anything to do with you, but you blew it. Plus, their lives probably suck enough as it is and I would not subject them to an asshole like you anyway.

 

Please go troll somewhere else.

If you do happen to stop in Antigua (kinda on the way) we are flourishing with fire breathing prostitutes with the power of changing a mans religion!?!?! Some people like the idea more than 49 virgins!

 

Jokes aside although short notice there are a few fine Caribbean candidates that I know of around here that may be available for the skipper position (to clarify) but most come with a rate based on mileage ie 2 euros a mile or a day rate not sure what they charge here. I can start looking in the morning.

 

That particular crossing can be an absolute broad reach sled run blast!!!! 54ft ketch!!! I'm lickin up what your throwing down!!

So, this is a ruse, right? You aren't really serious are you? I like to look at silly posts like yours on occasion, helps to lighten up the day, You were offering a Cuban hooker and you mentioned that you had "some really nice fishing equipment" onboard. I'm assuming that the Cuban hooker is a new type of lure for Mahi or something. Good luck finding someone, I'm thinking you'll end up with someone as dim as you and, God forbid, we'll be reading about you in papers. Good luck buddy, you're going to need it.
