I missed that he was a frequent contributor when this thread started...

I guess that he made his biggest contribution between 2-19-2009 and 3-8-2009.

The ship is reported to have structural damage (how can one tell) and CG have NOT taken the ship in tow (and probably won't), and are currently deciding what to do with the vessel. The Coast Guard Cutter Reliance will remain on scene with the RawFaith.

I think that the Atlantic could use a new reef, right about where she is. Too bad that she has fuel aboard...

Given this, I would question what really happened to RawFaith. It could have easily been an intentional scuttling.

They had a little shouting match, and the Harbormaster arrested the good captain for trespassing. I believe he yelled at the HM something along the lines of, "You won't be happy till I take the boat out to sea and sink her..."

He has till the 9th of December to leave or the case goes to court. He says he'll gladly leave, but he doesn't have crew, and he has to wait for the weather. We've heard the story before, now he wants to head to Bermuda, but has to wait for the right wind direction. The HM doesn't want him to send him out to sea, but if he can't stay at the NPS dock, there's no place else in Salem for her to stay. Salem's HM asked me how big a crew he'd need and I think I said at least 6..."


Hmmmmmm....

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Don't mean to divert what should be a very entertaining thread.
Sure I recall this boat as a serious competitor in The Observer Single
Handed Transatlantic race back in the 1970s
You used to get some very strange designs-remember the Proa with a single outrigger which was sailed in both directions ie bow became stern and stern became bow.

On a civilized site, an egregious pun like that would be a banning offense.

Luckily, you're here.
