Thanks for the clarification

Watch great footage about the story of one man’s slow odyssey around the UK:

Wow - this boat was FULL of crazy
If that really is "Jane", I think a 10 minute conversation would have had me swimming for shore. I am starting to think they all deserved each other.

We had reason to believe they could not be trusted not to skuttle the water, to avoid the FCC Title 14 Regulation Violation. Further the 1.5 liters wasn't punitive, it didn't include the beer, wine, soups, and juices consumed. How about that, not such a sexy story, heh? Jane

Much to my, Jane's (not a girlfriend but business partner) protesting in favor of sailing the course. 'such an evil thing to do, I know!'

Okay, Jane, admit it. You think I'm hot. It's okay. I get that a lot.

As for your posts...

1. You seem to say you have no proof they were "scuttling" water - yet you take punitive action against them because you were convinced of this strange FCC plot. Did you see them scuttling water? If not, you might have been seriously overreacting - which would be in line with their complaints that you guys were seriously overreacting.

2. thefacts....The fact that Jake asked Harry to top off the tanks before leaving the dock, and the fact that Harry did not makes your argument that they didn't ask about how full the tanks were, or check them themselves, a bit weak. The water issue, and/or the communication thereof was on you and Harry. You guys blew it.

3. Harry was the skipper. Being a skipper means a lot more than just being an owner giving people a nice opportunity to "live the adventure" or even a nice cruise director. Think Stubing instead of Julie. In my opinion, the way this whole thing turned out points first and foremost to Harry's poor skippering (and potentially your poor advisement in and co-management of the situation). Bad decisions before and during the race. Remember, sanctity is a participle, not a dangling adjective.

As for the rest, I can't wait for SalNichols to show up and support you and Harry. That will be fun.

Sal?

(PS - Sal said you guys had 18 days of water. You say 25. You really shouldn't disagree with Sal. Remember...sanctity.)

After reading this entire thing I am fairly sure I would have thrown everyone else over the rail and told God they died.

thefacts, Jane, whomever:

Please stick with the facts of the race as you see them. The moderators thought this thread would be a good learning tool for others. It is not the place for you to insult the forum members.

Ah, c'mon, I don't mind a little insult here or there. As long as it doesn't get too personal, it's just a bit of spice in the gravy.

I know you can take care of yourself but the posts read like just the wind up. I don't want the gravy to burn. The moderators are ready for a post full moon break.

You can actually learn a lot about a person just by counting the number of exclamation marks in their posts.

Doesn't a new contributor have to have a minimum of 10 posts before he/she gets to start disparaging Smacky?
