      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.

Interesting boat in Mystic CT

17 posts in this topic

Found this in Mystic CT next to Red 36 Restaurant at Seaport Marine.   Wondering if anyone knows what it is or any history of it?  Has a distinctive transom and helm cockpit, otherwise looks like a wood maxi boat.  Not really an ior stern.

Nice girl, looks like an IOR class ... But very strange to have a boom and a mast in wood ? Looks like Garry Mull design too.

Yep. Van Ki Pass - a Vic Carpenter design with beautiful wood. I saw that boat in Bermuda on a delivery to Noank.

Thanks Spike.   Great info.  Interesting for sure.   It's starting to deteriorate and will need some topside repair to the finish.   Hope someone takes it on.

Specs say it has a 170 HP Volvo engine?  Isn't that a huge overkill for an auxialiary?  Or, is it a mistake in the listing?

50,000 displacement.  I'd want 125hp+ (@5hp/ton).

I love a happy ending to a story, dated 2012.  When she gets out in 2020 she'll be 75 yo.

Attorney General Peter Kilmartin announced that Elizabeth Baldwin (DOB: 11-6-45), with a last known address of 34 Miller Road, Middletown, pled nolo contendere to 92 counts of obtaining money under false pretenses, computer fraud, embezzlement, misappropriation of funds, and bad checks in a Ponzi scheme in which Baldwin stole $7.9 million from 49 victims.

In accordance to the plea agreement, Baldwin received a sentence of 30 years, with eight to serve and the remainder suspended with probation and has been ordered to pay $7.9 million in restitution to the victims. Baldwin was remanded to the ACI immediately upon entering her plea.

That boat is the best looking Carpenter design I've seen. Most of his boats are kind of odd or lumpy but beautifully built - like ugly musical instruments.

Stinger was another beautiful  All wood Carpenter 1 toner. It's a stored in a nice shed boat for over 30 yrs now. Vic put 1ton in wood inlay top to bottom side to side 4x6" squares on the transom. But he couldn't get her to the rating. The owner garaged the boat.  It's been described as Like a fine piano no body plays...

My objection is not to do with watching them.  It's about the two screenfuls they occupy

Soooo it's not my falt, just a bug I guess.

I've tried to fix it  just can't seem to find the way into the signature change page. Care to join the DRIFTWOOD Ranks put two videos in your sig line.  It's a latent residual fuck up from the forum change and I got my own forum ranking......B)

It's a matter of including Youtube links in the sig. The software expands them to a full video frame.

There my be some way around that, but the simple solution is to just remove the links

Here's how you get there.

1. Go to the dropdown menu beside your username on the top right of the screen.  Select "Account settings", like this:

2. That takes you to the settings menu, where you select the bottom item: "Signature"
