RDawg - sorry I encouraged you to miss the deposition, dude. Heh-heh.

PS - I guess I'm most interested in the CG's response to this...that is try to deescalate the situation. It's an interesting role the CG is thrust into in a situation like this. What should they do?
I had a bad day, I need a hug or will kill someone
No regret, SD. I would do it again in a heart beat. It is too bad it was not the element of nature threaten us survival but from the other human that acted upon us.

As for the CG's comment, I think it is a wise one. Deescalate is the perfect word in our situation, since we were just half way point. No one can be here within a short time. We were on our own. Our call to CG is not for help, but rather to inform them if something happens to us or the boat, they have to clues to go by.

We waited for a long time and waited until physical violence has occurred before calling. It was a right and calculated decision to call. We were not a bunch of pu55ies to cry for help.

I think you just hit the nail on the head. This isn't a move, it's "The Real World" on steroids.

I think Jake has the screenplay for his next movie.

Yes, he has lot of footage and recorded through out the voyage. He had three film crews for two days filming the preparation and departure. I also mentioned that he had a film crew in Hilo filming our arrival in Hio. I don't know how much it will end up in his film. It is apparent he was funded by some organization but this mishap (voyage) was just a sideline until it made a dramatic turn to the worst.

Re: Mutiny at Dawn - Transpac Race 2013

My secretary did some work for me regarding the Labor Law in CA. I can file three complaints against the company
• Violation (for not providing sufficient safety and welfare of the employee, water, etc.)
• Retaliation (for threatening after you called CG)
• Wage (for not reimbursing the expenses to go home)

The boat is in the name of the corporation, was used as a tax write off, we were the employee of the company and were protected by the labor law of California. All three complaints are well documented in our correspondings (emails), video, pictures, and voice recordings. If DOL is sided on our case, the legal action will follow.

Yeah, yeah - but can you now make a good spicy salmon roll?
