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.

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

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

Maybe its because you joined a few years ago and some of us have endured the travels of Rockdawg a few years longer than you.

I think they all caused this scenario

I hope Harry learned from this experience too....to vet his crew,,,,he took a fake delivery captain who had no experience who almost took over his boat, used physical force, never raced before on a 14 day trip. And the person he took as crew got on a public forum...trashed his ride....trashed his crew...and threatened to sue him...all out in the open.

When you look at lunacy and dynamics rememeber...that Harry/ Jane had skin in the game...their boat...their race....Jake and Rockdawg had absolutely none. All acted foolishly as their lives were the skin in the game also. All took uneccesary risks by setting out together on this SHIP OF FOOLS>

We should revived the Bounty story. Harry as Captain Bligh....Rawkdawg as Flethcher Christian.....subtitles only...dialogue in Chinese and Manderin.
Harry and jane are lucky Jake and Dawg didn't cast them adrift in the dinghy.
