      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.

One of those little sporties the Russian guy has built. 15-16ft with headroom to sit down below.

The windows look like the old skippy 500, but this looks a little bigger. Maybe its a new version, the hatch is definitely different and the 500 did not have a backstay.

Bite your tongue, huge insult to the Crapi 22. The side rendering looks better, but not much.

and you folks thought the Catalina 275 was bad.

Reminds me of a very ugly version of my own Boat, a 1985 Ross 780. Interestingly, it's about the same size and weighs the same. Guess I'm going to have to make the move to a Masthead Kite and a sprit!

Hello 'gentlemen'. Please do not post gratuitous insults about one of my designs on this website. It serves no purpose except to highlight the fact that there are some strange, sad people out there and it brings the Sailing Anarchy forum into disrepute..

Hi Keith, too late for that, I think the horse has already bolted.

 

Interesting design, hope it works out as well as you expect.

 

Photos of the finished product would be great to sooth the savage monsters of SA

It is very hard to bring this forum into disrepute. It's already been done many times.

 

So tell us about your design?

Hello Trickypig and Rushman - you both seem to be human, so I am happy to respond to your expressions of interest in my BLUE FLAME design (the commercial name is as yet unconfirmed).

 

Unlike most yacht designers, I started my design career with racing dinghies (in particular, Merlin Rockets). So my larger designs are based on what I have learned about planing hulls from that perspective: as far as I am aware, there is no publication which deals scientifically with the hydrodynamics of planing sailboat hulls, so my dinghy design experience is very useful to me.

 

The design aim of BLUE FLAME is to combine high performance with trailability and accommodation with standing headroom. Yes, this has been attempted many times before, and clearly in a 27 footer there are going to have to be some compromises made, but I think that we have come up with a vessel which will perform very well while from the aesthetic point of view looks pretty good. Some of the renderings of the boat have a rather exaggerated perspective, which may give a wrong impression of the boat's looks, but I have seen the first production boat taking shape and she looks good.

 

Under water, BLUE FLAME is basically a scaled up BM550, which in turn is a scaled up HAZARDOUS Merlin Rocket (see my website at www.bluelightning.co.uk for further info on these designs). BLUE FLAME has a 405kg centreboard which fully retracts into the hull, so launching and recovery are a doddle. The main hatch is indeed offset, but the downflooding angle is adequate at 110 degrees.

 

For the latest updates on the progress of the construction of the first production boat, and further general information about the design, please see my website (address above). There are some photos of the boat which will give a better impression of her looks than the rendered images.
