      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.

Are you sure you are talking about a J92? The J90 Ragtime has done a fair bit of distance racing including at least one hawaii trip - very different boat than a J92 - in a different hemisphere - incredible that both very conceived by the same designers/builders

 

The J90 is a real sport boat - the J92 is in the J105 camp

We straightened this out at least once before -

 

The light blue "Ragtime" is a J90 (formerly Rod Johnstone's) - it has never done a TransPac. Ryan Finn did one on another J90.

 

The dark blue "Ragtime!" is a J92 and has done the Singlehanded TransPac twice.

 

Both boats are currently for sale. PM me for details on the 92.

Christian must have thought he was on the Sportboat Anarchy board, where that kind of comment is expected.

 

In the 92's defense:

 

Ryan did the windy 2004 race in his J90, finishing 17th out of 25 boats with a corrected time of 12:06:11:30

In the lighter-air 2008 race, the J92 finished 3rd out of 23 boats with a corrected time of 12:01:19:24

 

YMMV

I'm crewing for ULDB guy in some midwinters. The boat is cherry, it's flipping gorgeous, it's got nice new North rags and a spiffy new mainsail cover and ULDB guy spends money on it like there's no tomorrow....divers on the bottom, multi gazillion dollar haulouts every year, etc.. If I had fifty bills I'D buy it.

 

Don't buy this boat. I'm having fun crewing on it.

Ha, thanks for bringing up good times Bob. In the J90's defense, my result had nothing to do with the boat and everything to do with my risky race strategy and my poor preparation, which led to three instances of masthead damage starting on the first day. They are very differant animals though, and having done it, I'd have a hard time recomending the J/90 over the 92 for a trip to Hawaii. It sounds like Ragtime is ready to go anywhere though.

Thanks, Ryan. You sailed a good race under the circumstances - I just couldn't let Christian's slam go without a response. When he has done a SH TransPac in his Viper we'll see what he says about singlehanding "sportboats" in the ocean.

 

Tuffy you're right of course, no comparison. Reminds me of the Ford(?) vs. Jaguar line in "Silver Streak."
