      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.

worry about TY self righting and sinking

 

I'll take positive bouyancy any day over self-righters that SINK , keel first I suspect

 

Is there any point of being upright when you hit the bottom ? or is it just a feelgood thing ?

 

 

GS, it's common knowledge that my boats Self-righting, however it can't sink not with 3 Watertight compartments and Cedar Cored construction.

 

Bit of a narrow minded statement just quietly.

shout it out then, btw i didn't mention your boat as an example ?

 

a load of self righters would sink like a j24, your mast, boom, 5 headsails, 2 poles and keel would go a good fair way to overcoming the cedar's postive flotation I suspect

 

yeppers, sportsboats that actually float .. positive flotation, as your r/c colleague Doug would say, 'it's a revolution, it's the future and the future is here now, join the revolution' , hmmmm :lol: :lol:

Don't talk about me and hatches.

 

1st one blew off coming back from Batemans Bay a year ago

2nd fell off, as you saw, coming back from Batemans Bay this year and was in the cockpit, saved

We then put a saddle on it with some shockcord so it couldn't blow off

Then at the Bay to Bay it was in the cockpit and when Ben and Kate were going to bed they knocked it and it slid out the back and drifted off in the tide and sank.

 

Now onto my third hatch, luckily Cameron had made a spare

Conditions varied over the weekend from 5 - 25 knots and wind all over the compass. The Barney Army went full cruising mode, and stacked the rail with 5 adults and 2 kids. A bit cosey below overnight. We all had to rotate below for every one to have there late night piss. We had a big storm hit at 8pm with many boats drifting anchor around us. We tied to a massive mangrove tree so we were safe. Plenty of rain made for less than comfortable times. Once the storm passed though it was ashore to get onit and join in the talk it up cup which goes on, especially for the line honors boat haha. ;);)

 

25knots from the west made for a looooong beat back to Manly, but with plenty of rail meat we made it without too many dramas. 5 and a half mins behind the Magoo we were happy. Very wet and cold initeation for our young French friend, she did not say much the trip home.

 

It was good for Raptor to sit out this weekend as it gave another boat a chance at getting a prize. :P:P

Didnt it blow on sat night! Was expecting to see the Magoo gone in the morning going by the wind that was flattening the dome tent we were in that night! Reports of over 70knots at the inner beacon, bloody windy!

Will have to think about that at a closer time i think! Its hard enough for us to keep out of trouble in our own back yard during daylight, let alone going round and round in your dam down there without getting stuck somewhere!

 

Will be there for sure if a sponsor jumps on board, Rum is so bloody expencive now that they are classed as "Alchopops"! :angry:

It's a plan to run SMS in parallel with TCF, so those that are rated will have 2 bites at the cherry, however O'all will again be TCF. We have started to collect a huge amount of Data on boats that have entered previously.

 

I'd like to get my boat measured but I'm just about it for Sportsboats up here aside from Stealthy, and I can't afford to get it done on my own.

 

The Stealthy V Team G.U.E battle will be worth every bit of the admission. ;)

Sorry mate, while I really enjoyed the race last year on Rolls Ross, this year its on the same weekend as the St Helena Cup, SEQ's biggest race of the year and we will be doing that. At this stage I hope to have the boat down at Toronto for the E7 States. Not sure if my regular crew will be there though as the skiff season is in full swing and they have obligations there. As you know the fun tickets only stretch so far :(:(

It was a bit strange when we looked out the window & saw the anchor light go passed at about 4 knots so we jumped in the tinny and retreived it just in time. At about 4 in the morning we had to move the cat it had dragged the anchor aswell & the Turtle was on the bottom not much fun when your still half pissed.

thanks again for your help, and let me tell you it is no fun at 11.00pm when you are fully pissed :lol: We couldn't tell if we had dragged the next morning after moving as none of us could remember whrere we had dropped anchor. :lol:

Personally I reckon Thurston can only play about every 15 min, he can play but only when he feels like it. Prince and Thurston together and they are going to get a hiding, look at all the work Hunt did, and he was still trying in attack. The only way they can move Hunt out of there is if the big bad protector of halves comes back. Tate wasn't all bad out there, if he had better service it gould have been different, and Folau should be there.

 

Hunt to fullback Slater to the left and Folau right, Thurston and Prince and then just go for the tries and stop letting the Blues have their way. Keep scoring and they won't be able to roll over the halves.

We had a great doy yesterday for the combined clubs race 7. It was good fun playing with Raptor after the start, not sure why they wanted to play with us when the E7.8's were showing them a clean pair of heals. The also showed their tactical prowess by trying to sail to leeward of a IOR Davidson 40. When they finally dicided to sail behind them they took off like a rocket and quickly led the fleet around Hopes. We sailed around Peel at dead low tide and were a bit worried about hitting Magoo's Reef as the depthsounder gave up the ghost. It wasn't until the beat home that the wheels fell of the Barney Army crew as we sailed straight into a massive hole and 6 boats passed us. :( We did get 4 back and Speed on his T650 was one of them yippee. We had a small drama coming up to the finish as we ran out of beer. The rums were tasty though. ;)
