drinking and sailing

Not sure if this has been posted before but this is a strong argument about drinking and sailing not to mention the other mistakes.

Couldn't open the story. Received this message:

"Unfortunately this title has been restricted for your territory. We apologise for this and hope you find other titles you like." (incorrect spelling of apologize is theirs)

My first sailing lesson was when I was about 10 years old. A good family friend and former Merchant Marine Captain lowered his dyer dinghy, strapped a pfd on me and showed me how to sail. Capt Bob had a habitual orange juice addiction (which I now know to have been screwdrivers consumed from dawn to dusk every day).

When we got back from my lesson, my parents asked me how I liked sailing with Capt Bob. From the mouth of babes, I said "He's great, he never spilled a drop". All the adults roared; I didn't get it at the time.

We spent many days aboard together and Capt Bob could maneuver any boat into absolutely any forbidding situation. It was said, he could never do it sober, since he never had. Capt Bob died at about the age of 60. I recall it seeming very very old at the time. He was much older than 60 should be.

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.

Too bad you couldn't open it up. Internet should be censor free. Anyway it is the true story of a delivery where two of the crew had indulged excessively and when their boat went down in a storm they ended up in a dinghy and were severely dehydrated from the alcohol so started to drink sea water. They eventually started to hallucinate and jumped into the water where hungry sharks had a meal. One other crew memeber died from her injuries and the last two were rescued.

Darwin at work I see... If they were on a delivery, they had no business drinking like that. That is both unprofessional and irresponsible.

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.

This thread shoud be entitled "Getting sh*tfaced and sailing," not "Drinking and sailing." It's one thing to have a beer or two while out on a daysail and quite another to be drunk at sea while in charge of someone else's expensive boat.

Yes it was the 'Trashman' and figured it had been a topic previously but thought I would provide a link to a docu-drama about it. I'm curious if anybody was able to view it through the link provided.
