Re: Rescued at Sea - Are You Prepared?

I hate to do this when things are calming down - but I think it's important in the context of this discussion.

I've made no secret that I've been very skeptical about the lifeboat-rescue-tow...

That's the thing about this suit.
It is supposedly an honest 24 hours.

Re: ASA Coastal Nav Exam - HELP

Just a little comment on your approach to solving the exercise.

If you are going to teach navigation to students I think it is good practice to do stuff the proper way.

Re: French yachtsman rescued from the Torres Strait

From memory around six feet.

The problem would seem to be that if eight feet is too small just how big is big enough ?

Whining about costs of air sea resuce is just so much BS. Every time I...

Re: French yachtsman rescued from the Torres Strait

If you think about it, who decides what the safe size is. If 8 feet is too little, how about 16'? If 16' is too little, what about 23'? Add to this the question of trying to judge crew competence...

Either you get it, or you don't. Some like to push limits, just to see. Some like to climb Mt. Everest just because it is there. Others like to talk about how that is unacceptably risky. Maybe it...

Maybe if you were as straightforward as the OP and not a whiny little bee-otch, you might have gotten the same treatment.
