Re: Mutiny at Dawn - Transpac Race 2013

As for your specs: fill your coffee cup with water. Take a drink. One lens at a time, rins your specs. Don't use paper towels to dry them or you'll scratch them. Use a tshirt. Now brush your...

Re: Mutiny at Dawn - Transpac Race 2013

Btw, there are never any plastic/bottled water aboard. Each crew member is asked to bring their favorite drinking bottle. They're filled from the foot pump. No plastic=significantly less garbage.

Re: Mutiny at Dawn - Transpac Race 2013

To begin with, the 1.5l number did NOT come about until after day 12 at the earliest. AFAIK, there was no rationing before that time.

Secondly, you won't find me arguing that 1.5l is adequate. ...

Re: Mutiny at Dawn - Transpac Race 2013

Frankly, there is no physical way of putting that much water on most boats. In my case that would have been: 5 persons * 4= 20 gal/ day * 12= 240 gal + 200 gal in reserve + the 5 sealed gallons of...

Re: Mutiny at Dawn - Transpac Race 2013

I think he was referring to Hilo.

BTW, RD is the one that was whining about " Water is so short we are not allow to wash our face or brush teeth let alone sponge bath or shower on board."

Re: Mutiny at Dawn - Transpac Race 2013

Who said that anything happened to a weeks worth of water? It "appears" that they began rationing when they had a weeks worth of water remaining, and about 9-10 days of sailing to make Honolulu. ...

Re: Mutiny at Dawn - Transpac Race 2013

According to RD, the 1.5l/day rationing doesn't happen until Day 11 or 12. Once again I ask: why would you not agree to ration if your water supplies were "dangerously low" as described?

Re: Mutiny at Dawn - Transpac Race 2013

Ok, I have 1 34 gallon tank, and I installed 2 26 gallon bladders, all on the starboard side. No room for Jerry's, and no room for all of the bottled water or trash that it creates.

We did have...

Re: Mutiny at Dawn - Transpac Race 2013

Really, this entire story hinges upon the rationing of water at sea. I don't have a water maker, so rationing began when we untied the lines. No one was ever thirsty, everyone was healthy, and we...

It's buried in one of jakes few posts, after someone asks him if his fear was largely manufactured because he just didn't know what he didn't know.

Re: Mutiny at Dawn - Transpac Race 2013

Sir, when you're short/singlehanding, you can get away with doubling up. I had 5 people aboard for 13 days. I literally could not have fit 26 days of water on board without my rails being awash. ...

Jesus Christ. They left LA with 18 days of water for what should have been, at most, a 14 day passage. They didn't need to top off the bloody tanks you pedantic twit.

I never hesitated in saying the skipper was over his head. If you were interested in anything but your own agenda, which is focused mainly upon being a dick, you'd admit that.

Oh please, don't let me dissuade you from your attempt at self awareness. Your initial instinct was more than likely correct. You probably do enjoy tickling yourself there eh?
