Re: 6 Americans, 1 Brit vanish at sea
Clueless a? Well mr. Architect i took my opinions from peer reviewed articles dealing with the surveying and degradement of wooden boats. I believe a qoute was something like, "even surveyors with decades of experience cannot be certain of a wooden vessels structual integrity."
Wow! That's a mighty broad ass-covering statement if ever there was one... and quoted by someone who himself states he has no experience in the subject he speaks about.
"Honestly, I don't know why seamen persist in getting wrecked in some of the outlandish places they do, when they can do it in a nice place like Fiji." -- John Caldwell, "Desperate Voyage"
