Re: Mutiny at Dawn - Transpac Race 2013

I suspect 50% of the problem was language. Jane, if you are still reading.... is English your native language? No offense intended. How much English does Harry speak? RD I think might be a native speaker of Chinese. Then again he is a PhD so his English might be better than mine.

"Did you see them scuttling water? "
Now, I know how to scuttle a boat, but how exactly does one scuttle water? No matter how much C4 I put on the water, I can't seem to blow a hole in it, much less sink it.

Re: Mutiny at Dawn - Transpac Race 2013

I may owe rockDAWG a bit of an apology as I did not think the skipper and Jane could have been as crazy as he made them sound, but if in fact it is truly Jane, then she makes herself sound even battier than he made her out to sound! But I still think the water issue was a bit of an exaggeration.

Nope, everyone knows gerbils do not go out on boats, but hamsters, now those guys love to sail.


It is good to learn from your mistakes, but much better to learn from the mistakes of others...

Wow.

This one sets off a very specific type of alarm.



Sometimes people don't even agree on what time it is, like in the above picture.

Regards,

Brian-
"I want to emphasize that my opinions are based on the fact that the owner has not responded "
Well, you could always give him a call, or his wife. The corporate entities for both are openly listed and phone numbers should take about two minutes to find. It sure would be interesting to hear their thoughts on this.

I think to scuttle water, you climb out of it, onto dry land.
