Re: Fraud on the hook

My theory would be warmer water, coral cutting the metal. It could degrade at 1/4" a year. Or more given the movement on the coral. Just a theory thou.

Re: Fraud on the hook

doubt it's going anyplace. too remote, and the boat likely isn't much of a prize, it sat in Oriental,NC. on the hook for a year. hard to say when it had any love before that.

poor reef. at least it will not remain there above water long. Is it still floating at all? If it is they need to move it before 12 months are up. It will most likely be holed within 12 months of having the paint come off.

Is the boat FC? If so who wants it? If it is aluminum I will be right over with scuba gear and float bags

Yes, if they were "salvaging" the boat, they would have had to removed the boat from the reef. They then would be able to take anything of value to cover there expenses, but would have been responsible for disposing the hull. Seems no one involved here seems to have any sense of responsibility except for Pat Stockwell. Stockwell seems to be taking responsibility for trusting these idiots. Though it sounds like he has received some of the money from the local cruiser community. But to not hold a grudge, I think he is a better man than myself. I personally would like to buy that guy a beer if I ever make it down there!

jzk I am wondering if this constitutes piracy in which case the offenders' vessel may be subject to arrest.

I wonder, who was it that first said "Karma's a b'tch." ?

Well said. These people are thieves.

It was theft by relatively wealthy foreign cruisers on an expensive multihull who went on to justify it and even brag about it on the internet like a bunch of highschoolers videotaping themselves playing mailbox baseball. They had the luxury of adult brains, financial security, a life of leisure and they still stole. Simply pathetic if you ask me.
