      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.

FT10 Offshore Cat 2 Coffs & Southport (whenever it is these days)

22 posts in this topic

First thing I thought when I saw a Tiger at RANSA was f*rk what a perfect Coffs/Southport boat - and you can trail it home for us huge plus as we no longer deliver. Yacht racing is for fun deliveries creat stress and misery. I have never sailed the boat but will do as the season kicks off, at 29 I am nearing retirement age. Additionally ive follewed the development out of interest from a sailors persepective and product development view.

 

I did some quick investigation into outboards offshore ages ago - is a pernantly installed outboard in a well with remote controls etc cinsidered and inboard or permanent installation? I didnt get to checking what the wording in the blue book was but asked some who know more than most and conclusion was that it was very much a grey area, additionally the idea posted here created enough interest to pressure for at least a rule review.

 

Assume Prerry wouldnt draw a boat that didnt meet the 120 positive or whatever it is for Cat 2. Cant remeber dont care.

 

Reports ive are basically tippy and that the sails arent cut for conditions. Ive sailed tippy boats competatively but just holding on to the stiffer competition uphill in astrong breezes correctly set up ie blade and small heady and a deep 2nd reef main twisted off for 24 odd hours before losing them and the boat is showing to be very hot itn the states.

 

I was told ages ago that the FT was bringing the "ratbags but into sailing" like the JOG days well fucking perfect about time the scene got a bit wild. Piont is to expect opposition. Yes I can see issues eg lowering the leg without near zero boat speed, but with a MOB it can be, if planned, practiced etc done im sure ur meant to stop the fucker anyway asap, if you hit the bricks ur likely to stop as well and an outboard with a bigger prop likely to generate more thrust then a saildrive with a pissy folding 2 blade.

 

What is the call out there as history indicates we like to take our boats offshore, and in about a weeks time half the CYC marina occupants are just might be showing for sail signs.

 

Keen to have feedback and any comments raising relevant points - i didnt set out to cover everything nor could I however im bloody perfect in evryother respect so i tell the partner.

 

Thanks all

I already checked the stability details on the CE certification from Brian and Bob Perry and it won't make cat 2. Interestingly under the current regs many of the boats out there around the 30' mark wouldn't either - maybe they are being grandfathered or not aware.

RORC have made it quite clear that they want the smaller boats outlawed as far as trying to comply with The Cat 2 is concerned. I should know I've had the experience of trying to get 2 30'ers up to Cat 2 for the Pittwater to Coffs.

 

The base SS requirement was raised in 2005/06 from 115 to 120, which meant boats like the RP 30, T980 and Mumm 30 no longer complied in their base spec.

 

Brindabella the Maxi has a SS of 125, just to prove how ridiculous the RORC decision is, having said that most of the boats that have floundered in recent years fall between the 35 to 45 foot marks, as for 30 to 32 there are none.

 

Back on topic, there is no way known that a Flying Tiger could ever reach the SS base requirement, it is just not designed with Cat 2 in mind, and to try and get it there would make the boat prohibitively heavy and slow.

Ditto for Adams 10 (cruising version ) . Safety requirements make the boat so heavy we cannot be competitive.We can do it , but not worth the expense- to be assured of non result , regardless of skill etc. Very impressed with light airs sailing capability of FT10 as shown by Likatiger(?) in St Helena Cup -right up the clacker of a couple of Farr 40's.

maybe some hints on how dave ?

The great QLDer FT is in an ocean race with safeties.

 

Likatiger is on the RQYS Keppel race tracker leading all the Farr 30s, five in number.

 

This is more a rap for the Farrs, 5 in a passage race.

 

Whats wrong with the cockroacher boats ?

she's up there with the faster boats in her division and they haven't started running yet... now that they turn the corner it may get interesting

buggermedead, W Oats is only 5 miles off the finish already.

 

The tracker shows headwinds at times, probably not expected?

See if the Farrs can do anything with that, they do have the advantage of a wolfpack.

 

The thing is FT may have a better nut on the tiller extension.

Nice! Any discussion on what, if any mods were done to the boat for this and similar races?

Boat is at hammo this year on B finger, come and say hi, If your interested i'll show you what we've done, how and why. Torps will also give you his interpretation of the chinese writing on the cabin top. Note there is no mods to the boats, keel and rig specs(except an extra halyard we run 2 mh and 2 frac). Just the equipment bolted on that you need to make it Cat2. The sail inventory has been expanded to cover everything. The extra weight is noticeable but it doesn't kill the boat as speculated, if you do it right it enhances the boat when placed appropriately. When we raced a tiger last year at Airlie the extra weight didn't seem to hurt us that much.
