I thought it was interesting so I posted it for anyone who might have missed this in all the long, drawn out pizzing contests that made up the bulk of the other Bounty threads. I know that some of you seem to enjoy that kind of thread, but I do not. I knew that I could count on you however, to assert yourself in this thread.

As for making a spectacle about some boating accident, no. That is not me, so I leave it up those more qualified! :G Or those wearing glasses :G

A more useful discussion I would like to see after hurricane Sandy is how people react to the incredible amount of damage caused to moored and docked boats. What changes may be coming to a mooring field or slip near you?

Agreed...not trying to pick on you. I got more like 120 posts on it...argggggg. I just cant figure thin gs out. I thought that captain who abandoned his vessels Viewfinder when trying to attempt a crossing with a rookie crew who mutinied almost the second day would have be a cause for discussion, but no it was Bounty. Had broken his rudder once and still didnt register to have a plan B. Go figure

We are interested to see how Sandy affected the places we cruise when we come up the New jersey Coast this summer to the LI Sound. I have been on LBI and to Seaside this winter delivering generatorsa and see how bad it still is. We usually pull in Atlantic HIghlands and anchor/ moor too.

Maybe we will be able to meet up this year.
