      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.

Yikes! The more I looked, the less I liked. The deckhouse is awkward, and BPerry's improved butterfly hatch is much more sensible. Boat has a 'cod's head, mackerel-tail' look to it, that shouts 'stately performance'. Transom is rather awkward looking and homely. While multi-chines don't bother me, those aren't very attractive.

"Sailbooot" is a typo. "Yo to?" is a typo. Omiting comma is a typo. Typos are sometimes funny, sometimes irritating, especially for the author but nobody calls you a liar and fuckturd for a typo on internet forum, professionals have people for correction of obvious typos.

Ramming 5 inch ice for 3 days in your boat it's not a fuckin' typo! 182 degrees of positive stability it's not a fuckin' typo! Excellent LR for your boat its not a fuckin' typo! So on, so on...

What a totally foolish maze of pointless complexity! How many hours to  get that shell together, at what price? How many come home from years of cruising and say "You should make your boat as complex as you can  possibly make it?"

Not many !

Most experienced cruisers come home saying "Keep it simple, stupid!"

 There is not much of anything practical  to gain by making a boat that  complex ,and plenty to lose.

Simplify, and leave early, with  money  and lifetime left over to cruise with.

In the 80s ,80% of my clients wanted single keelers.Now 80% want twin keelers ,and those who went for single keels, wish they had gone for twin keels.

Brent, some of us know what 5" of sea ice looks like.  Some of us have driven pickups to plow off the snow for ice skating parties.  We know you did not break through 5" of sea ice.  We also know that BC conditions probably never create solid ice that thick.

I believe you plowed through 5" of slurpy with maybe 1/2" crust on top.

I've lived at the coast for nearly 50 years and have only seen sea ice twice. Once was thick enough for a Lab to walk on and this past winter it was thick enough for an otter to "walk" on.

In both cases it was in T-Bird marina which has extremely brackish water due to two creeks emptying into the head of it - the top 5' is nearly fresh through most of it.

It's pretty rare for even freshwater ponds or Lost Lagoon to freeze up enough for people to walk or skate on. I seriously doubt there has ever been 5" sea ice anywhere on the lower coast - ever. Maybe up north near Alaska on rare occasions.

Just more BSBS.

In Juneau I only saw it in fresh water--Mendenhall Lake, with a glacier sitting in it.

In Glacier Bay we broke through 1/2-inch to 1-inch sheet ice in the dead of winter.  Wooden boat with iron bark on the bow.  We were crabbing.  We were very careful.

I've seen thicker ice in the Pribilofs, but nothing close to 5".

Thanks, C

Yep, it just hangs down.  The anchor lanyard is sized so that the handle just clears the deck.  

Originally, I was thinking it would need to be rigged/derigged for every use.  Now I think I will just leave it there.

I will soon build a mirror image copy for the starboard side.

The PANOPULLERS are the ONLY dead vegetation on the outside of the boat.  The horror.

Can we change the topic to Bering Sea cruising?  I've always wanted to get up to the Pribilofs.  I believe there's a wildlife refuge for walruses there, at least I think it's there, where hundreds and hundreds if not thousands can be seen lounging and grunting and snorting and sparring (with tusks) on the beach in summer.  Anyway, I'm picturing Bob and Brent duking it out.

Steve,

Yeah, I figured he'd better watch your part 2 with sledge hammers and sawzall, followed by the happy ending, instead of the 14-year part 1 slog (I hadn't realized part 1 detailed that part of your efforts)!

As for me, I'm on the 14 year plan --picking away at things on and off, but in between cruises, thankfully and not all that time on the hard! -- and the end is now very much within sight.  Not sure I'd survive a full boat gut project...unless I had 7 months full-time to complete!

This photo shows a combination of success and failure...I won't provide any details :-)

From the "Geoduck" Wikipedia page:

The name geoduck is derived from a Lushootseed (Nisqually) word gʷídəq[5][6] either a word composed of a first element of unknown meaning and əq meaning "genitals" (referring to the shape of the clam),[7] or a phrase meaning "dig deep",[8] or perhaps both, as a double entendre."

Nisqually is a local (to puget sound) indian tribe.

I seem to remember mom running the necks through a grinder and then pressing into patties with bread crumbs, eggs, and spices. She also made chowder a few times. Unfortunately geoduck was her first instance of seafood allergies. She loved eating it and tried several times but always vomited afterwards. Years later she was allergic to other seafood and even had to go to the hospital during one of their Alaska cruises after catching and eating prawns.

They're very different.  I would never hammer a geoduck--nor would I grind them into fritters unless they've been dead for awhile.  Raw is best, I think.  If you're good with a yanagi, it won't be rubbery or tough.  Just wrap a nori belt around it to keep it from crawling away, add a couple grains of kosher salt and a bit of lemon and I think it's awesome.

I am not a big fan of raw abalone, so pounding and cooking is my prefered way of eating them.

TAD posted a picture of a metal boat on FB: 

 

Yes a friend ( Peter Kinsey )had Laurent Giles office design him a 50 foot twin keel steel boat in the early 90's ( Tavake). Horrendously complex and grossly over framed. Cost him $10K for the plans.He asked me to design it , but I was not interested in designing anything that huge. Couldn't see the point in such a huge boat. He did a great job building her ,but it took a long time, and plenty of money.

He hit  a reef in Northern Fiji, which  was littered with the remains of plastic boats.

He had no worries, and got off easily, it being nothing more than a temporary inconvenience, thanks to  his hull being steel.

I have only eaten Geoduck as sushi. It was eating a piece of rubber but chewier. I don't recall any flavor at all, just texture. I'll stick to the uni.

Canning tenderises almost anything edible.

Gross.  Canned shit is only for when you run out of fresh.

Being in a BS steel boat must be a form of canning.

You like your shit fresh? If I have to eat it, I'd rather have a coprolite.

Whoa!  Who knew Sloopy was a sock for Brent???

In this country that is grounds for a defamation suit--libel per se!

Yes, I graciously sampled products laid out by my generous host.  I thoroughly trusted him after the Swiss Steak and fixin's he laid out the night before.  It was delicious!  He and Jill were so nice.  Great vino, stimulating conversations with Ruby and Pumpkin.  But little did I know I must have overstayed my welcome.  That's when I sampled the petroleum sludge on top of some otherwise perfect toast.  Fortunately, the coffee was a good solvent and saved my life.

OK Jamhass: You can take the hat off now.

I'm off to the boatyard this morning. I think of these days as "Bob days" when I do exactly what I want to do. And I want to go to the boat yard. It will possible be the last time I see young Will, for a long time. He leaves on Saturday. He's going to be just fine, just    fine.

That boat really needs a sugar scoop addition.

One does wonder why the designer though the immersed transom was a good idea.

And why no forward bulkhead for privacy...

And some  other things, but it looks well built and clean.
