If Jake and his mates were indeed "culture jamming" this race - it was a total fail.

Jam the AC or the VOR. Then I'll give you some cred.

Yes, it occurred to me that given Jake's history, maybe he set this whole thing up, and Harry, Jane, and even grandma were pre-scripted to blowup the race. In other words, our buddy rockDAWG was Punk'd.

If they actully DID that - not saying they did - I would 100% support them being thrown right off the boat in mid ocean with raw steak tied to them.

Not to mention the calls to the Coast Guard/Navy being less than genuine.
