Here's something you likely didn't see coming: as of today I have sold Sailing Anarchy. After 22 years of creating, publishing, and stirring as much shit up as I could (while maintaining SA as a busin

I think that either scuttlefuck or that fat fucking Jabba the Hutt grifter bought it.

I think we need to force him into confessing. It seems the best way to me is to spread the rumor that Trump bought it and it's his new media platform!! :lol:

It has gone strangely quiet since the bankers offices reopened on Monday.

Snippet of phone conversation recorded by the NSA between  a cell phone in San Diego and the offices of Banque Pictet & Cie in Lausanne, Switzerland.

Renaud de Planta (Senior Partner- Pictet) :  "Which deal, Monsieur Tempesta?"

Scooter:  "Which deal?  WTF!  The deal where Ernesto buys my website for 2 million US Dollars and I call you to finalize details of payment"

RdP: " Ahh. I think someone has been, 'ow you say in English "pulling zee plonker".  Where was Monsieur Bertarelli calling you from?

Scooter @Editor: (with a note of panic starting to creep in) "From his summer home in New Jersey. I checked by calling them back and they answered "Bertarelli Residence".

RdP : Ahhhh Mr. Temper, I can assure you that Mr. Bertarelli has never been to New Jersey and would not pay 2 million Venezuelan Bolivar for your website

Scoot :  (Loud sobbing sounds) But but....I just published an article....and gulp.....bought a new car and a very expensive girlfriend"

The NSA have concluded that Sailing Anarchy is no longer a threat to National Security.

Thanks Scooter. I think we should all celebrate what you started, and what so many have contributed to making simply amazing.

I had no idea SA was for sale.   Has Scott said WHOM it was sold to yet?

I think maybe Facebook or North, for the good of the sport  hobby and to preserve secure the status quo.

This place is nothing without Scot and Clean.  After all, its basically just a message board with a few sailing banner ads.  Is that worth more than $500k? doubt it.  But people are irrational and fiscally illogical in sailing, as its a passionate sport, so i wouldnt be surprised if someone over paid.

like a Leak in a Ship

the hole has No Value

But one in whos Best interest it is to Stop it Up

Will Pay what it takes to get it Done

 

MEDIA is Controlled from end to end

What you think you learn by what they allow you to hear

Who you think you Hate by what they allow you to hear

What others think you believe by what they Allow you to say

 

bits of the interwebz have little value

Until You Control it All

Like fucking radio, now days 1  Station  Mega Corporation  with different # & staph across the bands

But 1 Agenda

Same with Most talk TV, might ass well be watching PA

Kan't really say/do what ya want around here anymore too

perhaps the place has been groomed to the tastes wanting Control

 

we shall see what happens

Thanks for creation of a really special online community and also for launching the site and being a good caretaker of it for 22 years.  The breadth and depth of knowledge of anarchists never ceases to amaze me.

Doing a resto on an old IOR boat and have questions?  There is a good chance that you might hear from someone who built the boat or raced on it back in the day.  Have gear questions, questions about design, which boat might work best for whatever application?  Post it here and for the most part, those responses are both well thought out and informative.  

Looking forward to what comes next, but also a big thanks for what you have done here.

 

ps-perhaps a Mumm/Farr 30 in your future or will we see you go back to the FT 10 well for the third time?

Just saw this news - it's quite the milestone

I joined the forums in 2003 and have seen this place ebb and flood over time.  Learned a lot (some of it actually helpful), shared a bit, met some interesting folks, some of them in real life too.

I doubt there were many people back in 2003 that would have imagined the site would make it this far, but I am glad it has.  Scott, congrats on creating something that was unique and, dare I say it, special.  Not short bus special... just special.  Good luck with whatever comes next.

Good for the Ed. 

I've talked a lot of shit here over the years, but, in general, he's been tolerant.

I think a good moderator tolerates the trolls as much as the dipshits as much as the connected industry folks.

 

"It takes all sorts of animals to have a zoo"  and the boss has always understood that here.

Clean has been in the Lawyer business for a few years now. It is painfully obvious that he has some venture capitalists' with money to LAUNDRY and Clean is now the profiteer with Scot staying on until they can hit the profit Mark. Meanwhile every one who worked really hard is left out. But that is Right Wing Capitalism at it's best.

Hey Clean, you remember your time in Valencia???. Yea, I worked full time and and stayed up all night to make it happen. You still owe me some $$$$.$$ that you never paid. Oh I forgot, it was verbal.......eh Just like Scot.

also, wad, youve just accused alan of a crime.  no bueno.  i would retract that unless you have rock solid proof that a crime has occured.

actually, when you think about it, its alot safer to do business w/ a lawyer than a "business person" because a lawyer has to answer to a regulatory body.

Good to see that you are not embittered and not the sort of person to carry a grudge .  It would be tiresome to be one of those people who launch into an incoherent rant at the slightest provocation.

Who is or was Mark? Why did they want to hit him?  Why doesn't he get bold capitals like the laundry?  Is there a Left Wing Capitalism?

Alan has mentioned his young daughter (7yo or so), I am sure he would never commit  a crime that could potentially land himself in the pokey.  

Meat Wad is just bitter about what he believes was Scot cheating him out of a cut of this website.  As Dawg, he did the behind the scenes work to get this place up and running.  I don't have the information to weigh in on the validity of his claims.  As Dawg, he kept this place running and could not have been more helpful to everyone.

The guy shits on lawyers, but sure looks like a good one could have helped him out here, as perhaps some sort of quantum meruit claim could have been brought.  oh well, that ship has long since sailed.

I have no sympathy for those that speak ill of officers of the court.  let them wallow in their unexercised rights, and their bitterness over money left on the table.  The smart money lawyers up early and often.

More importantly, best of luck to Mr. C if he is indeed running the show now! Will we see a return of OTWA?

All I'm gonna say is that there is NO WAY the "OLD" Sailing Anarchy wouldn't have a pretty good rant about the anniversary of the sacking of the US Capital by a bunch of angry idiot seditionists on the front page and a bunch of people all Ass-Hurt about getting Politics on their Sailing peanut butter

is he dead yet ? usually people are sanctified after they met with the grim reaper (beware of salmon mousse !)

imagine, Saint Tempesta, patron of all internet grifters....errr....entrepreneurs, but then at least this grift ... errrr, enterprise is a good one and contrary to some others (Marian M. comes to mind) it seems like he pulled it off and cashed some, way to go.

should it not be appropriate that similar to the newb routine the "soon to be"exiteers should  post a pic of their gf's tits ? ...on second thought, better not, grin

As far as I can see I did not mention any crime in our justice code. Laundring is a general term way of circulating money. 

Sometimes you guys really get sensitive.

I am so over that and you like many others cannot get over it. I know those 2 because I did work closely with them for many years and I've known Scot since about 1974. We have sailed many miles together and many of them very memorable.

Cal, I know you got issues but you really need to find something else besides sitting infront of the computer posting.

For many of you others, This place has become a bitter sissified place of intolerance. HTFU

Like we say we say in the human behavior business, insight is half of the battle.

I feel for Dawg too, but given his statements that I quoted, and his apparent lack of insight, I don't think you can't blame me for my comment.  It was low hanging fruit, and this is SA after all.

As long as are are all speculating at Scott's invitation - gotta say, after +30 years in the deal business, it's never over until it's over, there are a million ways for deals to go south before the cash is  in the bank...... sure, it's normal for big deals to have a delay between signing and closing - gotta give the FTC time to check on antitrust etc.  But this is a small deal and the smaller the deal is, the more often it falls apart after an initial term sheet is signed

so.... silence is....

I can't tell you how many times I have gotten to the one yard line and then things went south and the deal could not be salvaged. The first time it happened I was a bit freaked out. The third time it happened I was full of disappointment but had hedged my bets and life went on. I hope Scot has a done deal and can enjoy the finer things in life. Have a great weekend everyone.

I've worked for 2 people who just couldn't hold it together to finalize the deal.

One kept thinking he could get more and backed out at the last minute. That company ended up in bankruptcy and my dreams of having some FU cash went with it. His second company sold for $150M cash, but ... his 2 partners forced the sale. One of the partners told me he had to force it because my former boss wanted to back out and see if he could get more.

The second was too insane to know what to do with himself if he didn't have his company so he tanked my second chance at FU money. Again at the last minute. He eventually sold and cashed in, but like the other situation, it was forced by other investors and he had no choice. details of this are another story. The purchaser is now checking in to "anomalies" and looking to claw back some cash.

The moral being it ain't over until the check clears and possibly not even then if you lied during the dating process.

The other moral is to follow me and join companies right after I leave.
