carl762 Hate to say it, but you're wasting your breath. SD left this site and won't be back, from what I hear.

My Goodness, SailorDog is our 'watchdog'?

The bulk of people with multiple accounts are typically up to no good as we've seen here in the past.

1-here's a thought process for You...Perhaps as in Maybe, Just Maybe, I Made a Mistake? John Downing (SV DS's OWNER) asked me to LOOK at the pictures in THIS Thread here, with a thread that he'd started at Cruisers Forums. I did. I actually NEVER Posted to THIS Thread, here, Prior to making the mistake of coming BACK here after being contacted by folks who'd read the other thread, at the OTHER Site, and contacted me (by both phone and email) to see if it was Our Company doing the salvage was not; all I was trying to do was confirm that, for anybody who cared. NOT taking credit for that, which we weren't responsible for; go figure. A 'cut&paste' from another website does NOT a "Liar" make.

2-The VAST Majority of the folks 'here' (who aren't even "here", and apparently only were, ONCE) who have 'multiple accounts', either forgot their user name, or password (OR BOTH) and creating a new acct. was the easiest (or ONLY) answer. I don't THINK I have multiple accounts, if so, it was never intended; nor would I believe it to be the case for THOUSANDS of 'folks' w/user names that have NEver, EVer posted here and only visited ONCE...say 7 YEARS Ago? Scroll through the membership rolls sometime...just pick a letter and realize how ludicrous that statement of typically 'nafarious intentions' becomes?

3-I was 'migrated' here when SN BOUGHT the membership lists and discussion boards on a Pearson Owners Mailing List in '05; suggesting that unadulterated 'capitalist' plugging of one's business is equally ludicrous in that:
A-it simply never happened (by this poster), and
B-the box that I type in is SURROUNDED by ADVERTISEMENTS that PAY FOR THIS SITE in the owners hopeful goal of SELLING THINGS and Services (read=Making MONEY)!

4-Perhaps You would be further "more well informed" of the discussion boards rules if You read #1; You know, the part about PERSONAL ATTACKS?
I consider my reputation flawless. Having it sullied by someone in an anonymous fashion is dispicable; being called a LIAR is in anyone here's definition I'm fairly confident...a "personal attack". I'm a pure, unadulterated capitalist, employer of people who have JOBS and pay taxes; heck they even SPEND that money that's left over after all those taxes....maybe even spend some of it, right here?! I DID Make a mistake, in haste, in not being terribly interested in spending an inordinately excessive amount of time with a posting (either here or CF), so I cut & pasted that which had been posted there to get off the 'phone calls and emails' inbound list of folks up and down the east coast of the USofA who thought I/We/My business might be involved. For that, and 1/2, of 1 sentence You choose to be judge, jury and executioner.
'nuff said

ASS-U-Ming can be embarrassing.

Pretty Simple 'dawg'...I made a mistake;
Got word (though a phone call, back then) that DS was being 'chopped up' and they wanted to know if it was me. It wasn't.
As for the 'multiple posts' comment, I had here (heaven forbid!) confused w/the cruisers forums, where we had a similarly lengthed thread regarding the same vessel, in the same 'rescue' scenarios, discussed by HUNDREDS of posters. I had communicated with the owner (and still do, via email) directly, via phone, and email, we'd planned a trip for a full moon low tide, and nearly DIED trying to get there in a timely fashion from the Nature Coast of Florida. Like I said in that posting...message sent and received (FROM GOD, IN TECHNICOLOR...Make that "CINEMASCOPE") clear as crystal...wasn't meant to be. Spending a weekend (you probably have no clue what manual labor in a boat yard, w/a 30 cu.yd. dumpster that You're filling with 150lb sections of FG hull all day and all night long is like, going 24 hrs a day until the task is my case, in this sitrep as originally planned for the whopping compensation of a 'free bow pulpit rail' (where my biz wouldn't take on this proposition for less than $10k, EVER), and helping a guy out in some pretty dire straits. For this You Hypothize that I and my company(s) are some sort of crooks? Here's hoping You never need to call a salvor. Here's further hoping that You learn to bite Your tongue regarding FURTHER, FOLLOW UP "Hypothication" about that which You know nothing, and speculation beyond "well, I guess Maybe He Made a Mistake?"

artbyjody Could of been worse, someone could of been cut up by the chainsaw in the destruction.... still a pity...but for anyone not familiar with the Piedmont area (SC) and the delta (Charleston being one) - it is 80% clay...

RumPirate I come across this thread from a link in another thread.

I read through 44 pages in the hope that 'Distant Star' would actually be saved.

To now discover that she was cut up with sawsalls and chainsaws is very saddening and disappointing. As another poster wrote, it is a sorry and inglorious end for what was once a beautiful, proud boat.
