So you hid the water, taped the taps shut, and gave him only 1.5l/day to drink?

As the head of one of these evil legal corporations...well played.

Next time, don't forget to beat him with a wire hanger too.

Has anyone heard from rockDAWG? Last Post: Mutiny at Dawn - Transpac Race 2013 08-04-2013 01:06 AM

I would hate to think that he left SN for good, over this.

I had to google that.

Now I learned something new.

The lesson from the Icarus story is not about human failing.
It is a lesson about the limitations of wax as an adhesive.
If you have an engineering problem solve it.

Largely by the stench and the lack of any significant progress in any new direction...

Much like this thread.

Oh come on. This thread has been a fount of information on racing and the culture around it. I have learned 2 very important things from 103 pages of "discussion".

1. Do not volunteer as crew for a race when the owner/skipper is clearly crazy.
2. Do not allow crew on your own boat for a race if they are clearly crazy.

Have I missed anything? I did get a "like" from Jane, which now makes me feel like Joan Crawford was patting me on the back with that look in her eye.

Crazy people are often good at hiding it. Don't think you can always tell right away.
