Re: $158 ebay sailboat heads to sea
You know, I try not to rush to judgement when I read these things, because often, you don't get the person's own words, only what the press is reporting.
There are enough of this guy's own words in the article for me to feel pretty secure about declaring him a Grade A, Class 1, f$$$ing retard. He completely screwed up, and in the end, insists that he doesn't need any training or help, he has all the knowledge necessary for what he's doing.
If he'd screwed up and said "Yeah next time, I'll take a class or get some sailing friends to teach me, and study some internet resources." I'd feel better.
I just want to punch this guy in the face.
