Has not a thing to do with cowardice. It has to do with volunteering to post private phone calls/text messages to inet. Calls/messages that do not even pertain to what occurred during this particular journey. Moreover, the only reason, that I can see, for volunteering to violate these people's privacy, is to support the claim that these people are a nightmare to deal with. And, afaics, no one participating on this thread has questioned that. So, why even consider doing so? So that a bunch of strangers can ooh-and-ah? And basically, jerk off over what horrible people they are? Maybe I'm just old school. But I find that sort of thing just plain unnecessary, and for that matter, offensive, in the telling of this particular tale.

Non. They're on the open ocean. If the state of play aboard what appears to have been a cruising boat along for the ride is what it sounds like it was, they would have been better advised (IMHO and as has been mentioned here before by others) especially at night, to pole out the genoa and leave the spinnaker for such times as the Crew on Watch felt they could handle it...

I agree entirely as I noted in an earlier comment. Never-the-less, they did have the Spinnaker up in the event and, given that, they'd have done better letting Otto handle the driving. Frankly, they'd have done better simply staying in Long Beach and knocking back a few beers at the Rusty Pelican or LBYC.

Rockdawg is a Chinese-American who is a doctorate level professional. He is a consumate gentleman, and is a renaissance-type individual who has a wide variety of skills that are particularly useful on a sailboat. His mission to become a solo-circumnavigator has already brought him to cross the Gulf Stream 4 or 5 times in the last year as crew on other sailing vessels, and his accumulated knowledge of every major mechanical and electrical system on sailboats is impressive. Did I mention that he is an accomplished chef and can prepare an above average meal in a rough sea?

Rockdawg is a reliable, knowledgable, polite, loyal, and skilled sailor, who is always advancing his education and experience in the world of sailing. He has an ingenuity and work ethic that is uncommon nowadays. He is comfortable with both taking the captains directions, or taking the initiative in making independent decisions to advance the objectives of the passage in a safe and skillful manner. "Reliability" cannot be underestimated when you pick a crew member...especially when you only have 1 crew! Rockdawg will be the last man standing when the going gets rough. He would always rather be offshore in a sailboat than most any other place.

Rockdawg has become a valued friend of mine with whom I hope to share future sailing adventures. Whenever I sail now, I will call Rockdawg first, and if you are fortunate enough to find him available as crew on one of your trips then you can rest assured that you will be getting a first class gentleman and sailor to help make your passage safe, happy, and successful.

Great 2nd post, so who called you and suggested the damage control that you felt to join SN now and not before.

This thread has runs its course for me unless someone new from the boat comes forth. We now have the ghosts of Christmas past joining Sailnet to present testimonials.
