Given the age of the girl, the whole thing sounds like something being resolved in a manner more common to the Balkans than the 21st century USA. (g)

Not wishing to stir up a nest, but being I check on the 1000 days advent every day, something very interesting posted today, with respect to life rafts, it appears that the ex wife who has judgement against her ex husband. showed up on the day of departure to give him a life raft. Now what is with that, if she has issues, why then is she so friendly, or maybe that there might be some under lying story of which we are not aware of, does make you think. One thing I do know a lot of settlements never do reach courts files and updated, but then who knows and maybe we will never know.

I also suspect that the sailor in question has been a professional neer' do well and will at some point in the future be a poster child for the inadequacies of the social security system. The guy probably has never had a dime to his name, probably never will have, and if he does manage to parlay this into something capable of generating a dime, I'd expect the dime to be soon gone. I'd hazard the guess that $10,000 is a pittance compared to re-opening a relationship with the fellow.

Child support, like a dairy product, is a time sensitive issue. The fact that it is owed cannot in any way ameliorate it's absence when most needed. A down payment on a car at age thirty is not a penance for the lack of funding for food or a soccer uniform at age ten. And I'm less than impressed with the state's aptitude for the penance business.

Ask me if I care about the hijack. (g)
If it was reduced to judgment (and it looks like it was), the judgment can be enforced for twenty years in many states. I don't know about New York or California but I would expect them to be similar. I guess the idea is that you don't want people to be able to "wait it out" by, for example, getting on a boat and drifting for a year or three only to return debt free. Hey, wait a minute . . .

Different ex-wife. That was the french one. The american one (Anne) is the one with the judgment. She is the one for which the boat is named (although he now claims he named it for his mother). He first named her "Tantric Schooner," which is one that you don't see every day. I have wasted far too much time on the Sailing Anarchy thread. If you have any Stowe trivia questions please let me know.

ONE Year at Sea

Well...Reid has made one year at sea today and is commemorated in the NY Daily news:

He's collided with a freighter, watched his girlfriend and only mate jump ship because of crippling seasickness - and even received word that authorities plan to seize his boat when he returns in an effort to claw back $10,000 he owes in child support.

Epic solo sea journey only one-third over

Any bets on year #2 being as entertaining as year #1??

I think he's going to stay out there as long as he can to avoid the authorities. He may even scuttle the boat in the end.
