      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.

Salona 37

I see there is a boat in the Sydney to Hobart "Salona" (Salona 37)

Interested to know how they perform. Has the boat competed in any races yet?

What would they be expected to be near around the cans? :unsure:

Davo, A vested interest? I heard rumours of a Hobart trip with Dazza and KenS. (Whatever happened to him?) From the website looks a little likle a Beneslow 40.7. All good though. Enjoy!

Looks like me, Dazza, Ken S + what I know is a few other very experienced sailors!

Numbers look not "quick" to me but on the nose depending on rating is where she'll like to go. :unsure:

Talked with these guys at the Annapolis Show, really nice boat, good people and the build quality looked to me a step above other production boats. On the Chesapeake the dealers boat rates 81 PHRF with a 135% HS. I am sure somebody across the pond would have the IRC rating as they are built over there with a bigger presence.

 

The 45 is a really sweet ride, fuck that would be sweet to bang around the Caribbean for the winter on one of those!!!

Looks like an X-Yacht knockoff- right down to the interior woodworking. Not that that's a bad thing.

At a fraction of the X-Yacht price

I talked to the dealer at the show, and my fuzzy memory seems to recall that the dealers boat didn't have the deeper keel. But I easily could be wrong.

I seem to recall that as well… I know the 45 had the deep ass keel; 8.3’ shit that is fine for the Islands PR and south but would not want to be dragging that bitch around the Chesapeake or the Bahamas…

 

 

BTW that is one ugly camel toe; you can do better than that… :P

Never sailed on the solona or seen one. You should check this one Grand Soleil. I spent some time on the Grand Soleil at the que in Croatia and was very impressed with it. Rig looked powerful - cockpit was big and looked well setup the boat its self was actually a charterboat but fit right in on the main drag parked next to the glitzed out Itailian power boaters.

 

Very cool boat. If I ever see one on the SF bay I'll be looking to snag a ride.

there was a 37, (Slainte), in Spi west although I think she is rated with PBO rigging, carbon rig etc.

Saw her late last year and is a nice looking boat.

Great compromise interior for cruising and racing.

The same boat is on a dutch commodores cup team- and heard she will be less the PBO.

 

Should be a competitive IRC boat in production boat terms I would think.

i had a look at the boat on the boatshow in hamburg last year and the boat had some real nice berths in the salon.

 

going to sail on one in the baltic in the middle of april. saw the boat last year and it looked quite good with under-deck furler and nice sail shapes. looking forward to that, hope i don't forget to take pictures.

I'm sure by now deals can be had.

I found this thread while searching for a PHRF rating. I bought the Salona 37 that was in Oxford MD. Keel deprived but what is there is a good one. Fixed prop that is huge on the saildrive. Bottom paint was applied with a mop. The rig was not centered in the boat and mast head waaay off to port. Gave you one good tack. Now, a year later she is proper, outfitted and my wife loves it. Now that the selling the wife process is over we are getting a rating, new sails, sprayed VC17 and ready to go have some fun.

This going in the ocean? I'm no expert but thought VC17 was fresh water paint....Boat looks nice though!

Funny as I was going through some old paperwork this weekend and came across the Salona brochure from the show and then this old thread shows back up!

 

Like I said she looks like a really nice boat.

 

Any idea what happened to the 45?

What do you mean? Salona 45 was introduced about 10 years ago and now they have Salona 44: http://www.salonayachts.com/en/models/s44.html

 

The dealership in Oxford, MD USA had a Salona 37 and Salona 45. I could be wrong but I think they only had these two boats and never sold any others. The 37 is accounted for, just curious where the 45 went.

 

I am kinda kicking around the idea of doing the live aboard thing and the 45 looks like she might make a nice home??? Don't want too racy but also don't want floating condo...

Fun boat. Room for friends. Not fast, but awesome for cruising.

I was told that the stock 45 was sold and shipped to Italy. It was sold 2 years ago or so. The 37 is a comfortable cruiser and reasonably quick. If we can get the PHRF into the mid 80's or so she should be fun. I am just now applying for a rating. The rating when the dealer did the Gov Cup was 82 I was told but I doubt that included the fixed prop credit (which is gone). The 5'9" draft is not my choice but it works OK.
