They could, but in practice that rarely happens. Last person who I recall having no (discernable) connection to sailing whatsoever who posted only in the Off-Topic / PWRG was RAGNAR... and he's been on self-imposed exile for some time. Like the possibility of civil, rational, and enlightened discussion of hot topics on the Internet, what is theoretically possible tends to never happen in practice

That said, this is really off topic now. If you'd like to discuss it further, I'm more than happy to join you in an off topic thread on the matter. Lets not derail this thread with the subject.

Has there been any news I missed on the charging/prosecution of the culprits?

I was wondering about that myself.

Never forget them. Do something to prevent it from happening again.

Re: Violent attack, Cruisers injured, St Vincent & Grenadines, Union Island

As I walked by the "Charter in St Vincent and Grenada" guy at the Annapolis sb show I felt for him. I could almost sense his worry that someone will walk up and ask about the incident. He did ask me if i ever considered.....which I cut him off with, yes I have and had the time of my life. Bequia, PSV and all.

Dabs, I'm not sure to be honest but I believe that Off Topic posts simply do not appear for non members or for a member not signed it. I'd log out and try it myself but I can never remember my password to get back in.

Re: Violent attack, Cruisers injured, St Vincent & Grenadines, Union Island

I did log off, indeed no "Off Topic" forum section is visible. Also, any such lurkers cannot use posted links and don't see attached pics so access is fairly limited.

So true lurkers only see the sailing related forums, but a simple login opens everything up.

Incidentally, just now there were 104 members logged in, and 549 "guests", presumably lurkers, though some of those might be those mysterious non-spamming spammer signups...

And finally.. back to the original topic, wondering if there's any further followup on events at Union Island???

Andrew, thanks for the reply. So as to not muddy the waters here, I will post my further questions on "Off Topic".

Thanks, Paul T

Noticed that but quotes of deleted posts remain, leaving some confusion.

Also the responses to deleted posts were even worse in a couple of cases. :-(
