Re: Mutiny at Dawn - Transpac Race 2013
I wasn't there, so I certainly won't comment on what did or did not happen. I can say this, RockDawg has more patience than I do for stupid people.
After the second time Captain Numbnuts wrecked the spinnaker, I'd have told him "you broke it, you fix it." The first time he went ballistic I would have cut him some slack because I didn't know him, but I'd have gone to him after he calmed down and told him that s**t is not going to happen again.
Confined to quarters? No water? Sorry, but that is crazy. That's when you and the psycho have a conversation that goes like this, "You crazy SOB, I will beat your MFA and throw you in the water. I am officially off duty. Sail this tub yourself. One more word out of you and I will beat you to death with this winch handle and feed you to the fish."
