As to the rest of your post, we are still finding out more. So I think the time put in is still valuable. But we are not forcing you to read it, so why waste your time writing about wasting your time?
We know we a not wasting ours!
I have no problem with other being inflexible especially in their float plan. I would mention it if I think it is a bad move, but other than that none of my business unless my kids and close friends.

I have not followed the Bounty Thread for a long time. It has become a diminish for me. I was surprise it is still going on.

I hope someone can give us a reader digest version of the threads and omit all the miscommunication and misunderstanding posts.

Re: An Informed Opinion about the Bounty

My best friend was killed when his car hit a house at seventy mph. I understand the feelings behind this letter. Since I got out of hospital after the crash 32 years ago I've been pissed at my friend. But still love him.

Very appropriate. Best Post on this thread


God Bless you Captain Robin Walbridge and Claudene Christian. May your families and friends find peace in our prayers for you.

Quote:
The Song of a Ship Ships are the nearest things to dreams that hands have ever made, For somewhere deep in their oaken hearts the song of a soul is laid; A soul that sings with the ship along through plunging hills of blue, And fills her canvas cups of white with winds that drive her through. For how could a nail and a piece of wood, tied with a canvas thread, Become a nymph of moon-washed paths if the soul of the ship were fled? Her bosom throbs as her lover’s arms clasp her in fond embrace, And the joyous kiss of briny lips is fresh on her maiden face. No storm can smother the hempen song that wells in her laughing throat -- Small wonder that then men go mad for the love of the sea and a boat. For the singing sheet is a siren sweet that tugs at the hearts of men, And down to the sea they must go once more though they never come back again. -Robert N Rose

How about when one judge's people who judge?

Re: An Informed Opinion about the Bounty

I do not understand this thread, The Captain made a mistake, like many others, and has paid for it with his own and another life. There isnt much else to say. It matters not what his reasons were, the events are the events.

Looks to me like the corpse of the horse has been dragged to a new thread & the beating will continue.
