Re: Mutiny at Dawn - Transpac Race 2013

And I bet those guys on the Swift were using those new-fangled "digital charts".

Re: Mutiny at Dawn - Transpac Race 2013

"Other comments indicate Swift has made at least 66 knots on occasion, and the Wiki says:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HSV-2_Swift
"Swift returned to Incat at Hobart in July 2013 for refit for sale or charter.[6]"

The Wikipedia entry says she saw an apparent wind of 66 kts while retrieving a helicopter. As we all know, that doesn't equal speed through the water. If only it did, would make for some lively days in the slot.

It is like letting the water run while brushing your teeth.

you turn on water
wet the brush
turn off water
brush
turn on water briefly to rinse mouth
turn off water.


simple.
I believe that for eyeglasses there may be some paper towels or kleenex involved too.

MSC Ship Inventory - High-Speed Vessels (HSV)

Other comments indicate Swift has made at least 66 knots on occasion, and the Wiki says:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HSV-2_Swift

That's Hobart AUSTRALIA, conveniently across the path of the TransPac during JULY, when the race was running. Sorry, but that UFO citing checks out. Apparently Swift only spent two weeks in port swapping crews, like a nuke sub, and then checked out again. She was built in Oz, which is why she "returned" to Hobart.

Unless you think the USN and the Wiki are in on the conspiracy? The dates and times do check out. Sixty knots...damn that must be fun. :-)
Looks like I stand corrected, that's what I get for relying on a mainstream media report :-) The video I cited said she was returning to her homeport of Norfolk after her stay in Mayport, and I mistakenly presumed that meant for 'a while'...

However, I still stand by my skepticism first expressed back in Post #46 re RD's account of the encounter with the SWIFT, and the ease with which a ship of the US Navy was simply "sent away" by Harry, smells like BS, to me... :-)

Wouldn't you think that if RD had made up any significant details such as the SWIFT incident, "Jane" would have gone to town on him for it?

Re: Mutiny at Dawn - Transpac Race 2013

IIRC, groups go through several stages:
Forming
Storming
Norming
Performing
Transforming


Seems like this crew never got past the Storming stage.

Here are some more details on each step:


IMHO, a good skipper watches to see what stage the crew is at, even if it's just subconsciously. You can then work through the issues that are holding your team back.

There are more specifics (and written very well) here: http://joeypauley.com/leading-high-performing-teams

In the very limited eperience I've had looking for crew, I did phone interviews looking for something specific. Then we talked on the boat prior to departure, learning about each other, and covering safety scenarios. Of course this was for a 2-day coastal cruise, a much shorter trip.

Regards,
Brad
(MS Applied Behavioral Science from Johns Hopkins -- was going for an MBA originally, but found this type of training personally interesting, so I started loading up on these types of courses.)

By the way, my personal favorite sayings for this are: "criticize behaviors not the person", and "politeness goes a long way". To me, those two guidelines help keep the stages progressing.

Guy is sailing to Hawaii with you for 2 weeks. Let him have a couple ounces of water to wash his glasses. He wasn't taking a shower.
Those were the rules of the boat. He abides by them or finds a different ride. If she said he had to wipe his butt with one square to conserve paper, then he better dang good and well wipe it with one square.

But in one hand he is worrying about the water, and in the other he is rising off his glasses in fresh water? Toss the glasses overboard. They aint required racing equipment.

On our boat, we often keep a sink with a bit of water in the bottom for little things like this (and also to collect water that can be used later in rinsing off plates or other items). If he just let it run down the drain, it makes you wonder??

Again, I am not saying that he did this. What I am saying is that it aint his boat it is his ride. On matters like this, I don't see why you dont just deal with it. This wasn't marriage for gawds sakes. It was a couple of weeks.
