Re: An Informed Opinion about the Bounty

Dave, speaking of the weather channel, I haven't seen any comments about the presentation. I was impressed by Barksdale's interview. Those 14 people are really lucky to be alive and not be trapped by the rigging.

You'ld think that the weather channel would know better than to depect the rotation of the hurricane in the northern hemisphere as clockwise.

I missed the Weather Channel too, but I'm sure someone can share.

Chef,
Don't let him bother you. He even admits he is a redneck.

Why cannot we just get along:

Re: An Informed Opinion about the Bounty

Thanks for pulling that post, tdw. This thread as well as the other Bounty thread have been teetering on the edge for quite a while now, but blatant personal attacks are off base and that was a prime post for "the hook".
I'm going to follow the "Overheating" thread until the inquiry report comes out. Until then, sayonara everyone.

Re: An Informed Opinion about the Bounty

"Chef,

You say redneck like it's a bad thing!

Anyway, I jumped on board to say in support of Chef that politically we're really far apart but I consider him a friend and although we might do a friendly brush up here and there we do have in common among others things this wonderful thing called sailing. I often see Chef as we cross paths in Rock Creek and I'm happy to wave to him. I met him personally at MYC at last years Sailnet gathering and had a great time. So there Chef! You have now been supported by a redneck who actually has a "God Guns and Guts" bumper sticker on his big Ford truck, that is if you can read it through the black diesel smoke when I throttle up for yellow lights!...Sleep tight neighbor!

Just to clear up any confusion many think redneck means racist...thats liberal BS!

C'mon guys it is pretty clear Dave is personally invested in this. I am sure there were folks who defended the Captain of the Costa Concordia too, from a personal perspective.

I know Chef / Dave personally and can assure you he's a nice guy.. Perhaps his posts on the HMS Bounty can come across in a manner that is worthy of debate but if we have stooped to the level of calling people NeoNatzi's please........ GROW UP.......

As a friend I pointed out when I thought Chef was acting hypocritically, but name calling and posts like rock's are simply over the top... I call out a friend equally, like I did with Dave, when they step over the line. I am glad that post was deleted as this is not the SN I know....

I have been centered since the beginning, you on other hand have been a bit off even if in the end it seems we mostly agree. Don't take this as an offense, only fools don't change opinion if the evidence points in other sense...and unfortunately there are a lot of fools out there

Re: An Informed Opinion about the Bounty

This is sad, plain sad. If I saw this sort of dialog on my teen-age daughter's Facebook page, I'd tell her that she was acting like a middle-schooler. In my 55 years of living, I learned a few things including that when someone starts calling people names, they're generally insecure and have lost the debate in which they were engaged. So they lash out, often ineffectively. If one is not on the receiving end, it can be quite humorous to watch.

So here we are, yet again pontificating in the comfort of our dry, stable homes on what a professional mariner should or should not have done. The reality is that for the most part, we are clueless as to the precise circumstances surrounding the sad event. Yet we feel that we must be heard and that our opinion is golden.

Shame on us. Calling Dave a Nazi? Seriously? He's knowledgeable and a good person. In no way does a statement like that constitute a debate; it's meant for only one purpose - to be hurtful. If my kid did that, I'd be ashamed of her and of myself for what I apparently failed to teach her. Dave has shown his generosity of knowledge and of person countless times, often at personal expense..... he once went out of his way to visit my wife and I on Victoria when he could have just driven home after a long day at work.

I sincerely hope that we take a moment to think about our spirit of generosity toward each other, think about how senseless personal attacks are, take a moment to put ourselves in other's shoes, to understand that the world does not revolve around us or our blessed opinion. If for no reason than that it's the right thing to do.

You're a good guy Dave - chin up! I've also learned that if the critters are nipping at your heels, you must have something that they want!

Re: An Informed Opinion about the Bounty

You know what I dont under stand were all sailer and we are all friends. We share a comman intrest, we all love the same sport sailing that is why we are here. These other topics on these threads just cause problems. I dont mind talking about fiber glass repairs or reefing options, but i am not talking religon or any array of other topics here. I dont mind to be corrected about a statement I have made, but do it in respective tone, like I said we are all frineds here. Maybe he for got to take his?
