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

Re: Mutiny at Dawn - Transpac Race 2013

Face it, the absolute isolation of the sea has a drastic effect on the psychology of individuals, and the dynamics of couples and groups.

Sometimes for the better, not always.

On land you can walk away. Once while practicing for dinghy racing with light winds and hot weather, I made the wrong comment to my crew (wife). Without hesitation, she grabbed her life jacket and began swimming for shore.

We always have options and exits. Until we go to sea.

Jane is incoherent jbbering twit which is what the first post in the thread said.

And the jibbering incoherent senior members of this forum chose to believe the "Janes" of this world for the last few weeks rather than a fellow forum member's tale of woe.

Neither Rocky nor Jake have reappeared on this forum since dumped upon.

Well, those who didnt believe Rockdawg and Jake should be ashamed of yourselves.


Mark <---- I hope like hell I dont come here for a bit of support if/when needed!

Hmmmm,,,And you don't consider Rawkdawgs post a rant on its face value........

coupled with the previous few years worth of Rockdawgs comments on here to some...It looks like she figured him out in about 2 days.

And you allowed Rockdawg and Jake to do what....insult the owners Harry and Jane freely.....how about a little fair play and letting them defend themselves.

You allow Smack full reign with his sarcastic comments about Jane/ Harry.....why not allow them to be sarcastic back.

Whats good for the Goose....is good for the gander..

Jake...were still waiting for that movie Rockdawg promised?

That is f.ing beautiful. . Now that you have both cooled off that will make for a good story for years to come. I seriously thought about doing that while canoeing with my girlfriend earlier this summer. Now I wish I had had the balls to do it.

Re: Mutiny at Dawn - Transpac Race 2013

Chef, Jane has 9 posts, 9 oppertunities to lay her/their side of the story on the tale and what did we get? a new use of the word scuttle and sailor is a noun or some sh*t like that.

A golden oppertunity pissed away
