We had reason to believe that Dawg and Jonah(jake) were scuttling the water, to justify their violation of FCC title 14 regulations in calling PonPon. We caught The Dawg washing his eye glasses under running water for several minutes, although Windex, was stipulated as the solvent to use. At anytime they could have verified the on board water in the hold, as well as the bottled water. They never asked.
There was 25 days worth of water on board. Crew could have verified by dropping a line and sinker into the holds to check! They never asked to!! 1.5 liters bottled was to drink on deck, and was supervised only after numerous partially drank from bottles were discovered. Jake had left water bottles scattered everywhere. 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
Water issue pure fable. Could have been verified by Dawg and Jake (Jonah) but they never asked. The insurrections being more frequent, and the scuttling of water etc , the Captain decided to resign the race, and off load our mutineers'. 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!'
SMACKED IN THE HEAD DADDY, What are you about. Deserve sanctity? He was the reason all had a chance to 'live the adventure'.
SMACK IN THE HEAD DADDY!! YES in your pc world all skippers should have the temperament of Cruise Directors. And crews should not be expected to do anything uncomfortable, the Skipper should be grateful for their ungrateful company only. Jane
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.
(PS - Sal said you guys had 18 days of water. You say 25. You really shouldn't disagree with Sal. Remember...sanctity.)
