Re: Miss Liberty vs the landlubbing haters!

You know what seems odd to me about this, an event like this would usually end up in the newspapers down there. Grounded boats, jail sentences, stripped boats, and the like usually show up in a Google or Dogpile search. But when I do a search on line nothing comes up except the conversations on SailNet.

I assume that the 3" chain is a typo for 3/8" chain. If that is intended as the length of the link, that is approximately the length of 1/2-9/16" chain. The 250 yards (1/7th of a mile of chain), on the other hand, is inexplicable unless the boat was anchored in awefully deep water, as in 100 feet or so, oh wait, there are no 100 foot anchorages on the west coast of Florida..

Jus' say'n,

Yes, he has us 'pulling his chain'.
It smelled of BS from the get go.

Re: Miss Liberty vs the landlubbing haters!

Yes, clearly the size of the chain is the most noteworthy part of this story. Just to add a nice little challenge to those so nitpicky, perhaps the chain size isn't accurate, so I'll restate, and say the technical size of the chain is "big-a**" with a length of "ridiculously long ", because the only point that the chain is even vaguely relevant is that it was way beyond sufficient right up until it was STOLEN. As to the fact this situation has not made the news, you're right, this should be plastered all over every front page with the headline Pasco County Treats Victims of Crime Like Criminals...

Actually, it may be the ONLY relevant part of this indent-impaired tale.

See, the fact that you know so little about your ground tackle tells us that you had no business being afloat as long as you have, or you lied about the size of your chain, trying to make it sound more impressive...
so, that describes the story in a nutshell- either factual misrepresentation, ignorance, exaggeration or just plain a mess of lies.

Pick one. or two.

Neptune weeps:

No sail cover, a tarp on the foredeck, apparently to stem leaks, a tire as a fender, and this photo is at least a year and a half old...
the chain was the least of your problems.
That boat deserved better than the likes of you.

Re: Miss Liberty vs the landlubbing haters!

you think you really ought to be slinging the "idiot" label around, capt. homeless?

I mean, I still have a boat. You on the other hand, have a reef and still call yourself "captain."

Pride of ownership?????

If it looks like a duck ( very poor upkeep ), smells like a duck (has very little activity on it for log periods of time), acts like a duck ( rarely moves off its whatever chain), and quacks like a duck ( the details make no sense)..Its a duck ( derelict)

So what is the purpose of your posting here? What are you trying to accomplish?
